Though he is considered a flex player, Hotba is most well known for D.VA and Zarya gameplay. Along with some incredible self-destructs, Hotba surprised the Overwatch League with his Tracer gameplay, showcasing his talent on multiple roles. He mainly played during stage four of the inaugural season, alongside main tank Kim “SADO” Su-min after SADO’s suspension was lifted for account boosting.
Hotba is the first confirmed player of the new Guangzhou roster. The Fusion community will miss him, but he is sure to bring some fierce competition next season.
Good luck, Hotba!
