Seoul Dynasty (0-2 | 3-0-6)
Week 2 Recap
Vancouver Titans: (L) 1-3
Fielding a secondary roster lead by Minseo “Marve1″ Hwang, the Dynasty truly struggled against the stage one champions. Besides winning the final map in the match, Rialto, Seoul could not contain Sangbeom “Bumper” Park. The outright aggression from the Titans was backed by putting resources into their main tank. In doing so, Seoul were unable to maintain theirs.
There were many times that Juseok “Twilight” Lee would blow through the passive aggressive style that exists when Marve1 is in at main tank. Whether it was Twilight’s Ana or Zenyatta, it just meant more damage for the front line of Seoul to deal with or having more burst healing for Bumper. Seoul would succumb to many biotic grenades, sleep darts and Orbs of destruction from the star flex support of Vancouver.
Player of the Week: Jinmo “Tobi” Yang
Although Tobi was very quiet through the match against Vancouver, it wasn’t without leaving his mark on the match. Pairing with longtime support duo, Ryu “Ryujehong” Jehong, they allowed Seoul to both disengage and reengage fights effectively.
Week 3 Preview
Dallas Fuel (2-0 | 6-1-1)
A blue hot Dallas Fuel, having back to back wins against Paris and Toronto, will prove to be a difficult feat for Seoul to overcome. Losing to Dallas in Week 1 of the first stage will be looming in the background as Seoul prepares for this match. With the Fuel only dropping a single map and drawing another, Seoul will have to figure out their roster issues in who is starting and what role they will play for the team.
Since Dallas have brought on Lucas “Note” Meissner in the flex position, Dallas have looked near impenetrable. Bringing back what worked in Stage 1 around Seoul’s flexibility will be the answer for victory. Min-hyuk “Michelle” Choi’s Sombra, Baek “Fissure” Chan-hyung oppressive main tank and Byungsun “Fleta” Kim’s team synergy are all things missed in Week 2 for Seoul.
Prediction: Seoul Lose 2-3
Player to watch: Michelle
Having some of the most quite matches of his Overwatch League career in this stage, Michelle has struggled to find as much value as found in Stage 1. Seeing as he shares the Sombra role with teammate Sangbeom “Munchkin” Byun, it all comes down to decisive and explosive plays. This begins with Michelle on Sombra or D.va, keeping his team enabled to gain positioning for free and winning team fights single handily.
