Overwatch: A Case for the Washington Justice

Following the awkward, but complete, reveal of the Washington Justice roster, people began to question whether or not they were going to be a strong team in the upcoming season. Many placed them at the bottom of their personal power rankings. In the eyes of the fans no one truly sticks out as a star member, but that doesn’t mean there’s no potential. Here are a few people on the Washington Justice that can make their season a strong one.

Ado was, for many Shanghai Dragons fans, the star player of the team. He was the consistent DPS that also made the biggest plays. Some would have even said that he was Shanghai’s only hope to win a match until the arrival of Se-yeon “Geguri” Kim. He can bring that star quality to season two if he has the right team around him.

Tank Jun-hwa “Janus” Song

Another transfer from an already existing Overwatch League team, Janus was brought in from the renowned New York Excelsior. The Washington Justice certainly lucked out being able to get their hands on such a high tier player. The main tank is the core of any team, and getting to utilize one of the best in the league will give the Justice an excellent foundation.

Wizardhyeong was an acclaimed coach from the NYXL during the inaugural season. With him, they were able to claim not only two stage titles in a row, but end up at number one in the overall season. It also doesn’t hurt to mention that in the stages in which they didn’t claim 1st place, they simply took 2nd. Clearly, Wizardhyeong is one of the best coaches in the league and is just what a team like the Washington Justice needs to get them on track for a stellar performance.

Honorable Mention

Riley “Fahzix” Taylor

Fahzix is a very talented support player coming from NA Contenders team NRG. With his team he was able to take XL2, NYXL’s academy team, to a map 5 at the end of season two. On top of that, his performance on the NA ladder is nothing to be scoffed at. He has the ability to make big moves in the league, he just has a lot of work to put in and a lot to prove.
