The Seoul Dynasty has yet to play in the regular season without hero bans or with hero bans. Tiger Nation are counting down the weeks until they can see some of their favorite players back on signature heroes or flexing on new meta heroes. Within that time, metas can form as well as heroes could fall in or out of favor. Here are the top 5 heroes that Tiger Nation wants to see their players play.
5. Jemin ‘Illicit’ Park — Symmetra
As the Overwatch Community has seen in Week 1 of the Overwatch League, Symmetra has been a staple on King of the Hill Maps. This is a turn when in the previous seasons of Overwatch Symmetra was considered a troll pick alongside Torbourn. The Seoul Dynasty have three potential DPS who could jump on Symmetra. It would be fun to see Jaemin ‘Illicit’ Park hop onto Symmetra. Illicit has the projectile knowledge for Symmetra’s orbs and the tracking ability for her main weapon. It would be fun to see all the locations that he could find to teleport to.
4. Jinmo ‘Tobi’ Yang — Lucio
Any Tiger Nation fan will be looking forward to seeing Tobi on his signature hero. Last season Tobi popped off on Lucio to help the Seoul Dynasty win matches. This was most evident in the match that the Dynasty had against the Dallas Fuel in Season 2. Lucio has received a couple of buffs and was a prominent hero during the first two days of the League. It is exciting to see what the Boop God will be able to do with Lucio this season.
With the high play rate of Lucio, Tiger Nation will have to pray that the first week that the Dynasty plays Lucio will not be one of the banned heroes. Brice ‘FDGod’ Monsçavoir has taken a lead of boops off the maps as the Paris Eternal has played many more games than the Dynasty. It is time for Tobi to show who is the one and only Boop God.
3. Minseo ‘Marve1’ Hwang — Sigma
In Season 2’s playoffs, Marve1 revealed his Sigma. Many people were impressed by how fast he has mastered the hero. It will be interesting to see how he now stacks up against other Main Tank players now that they have had time to practice more on him. Sigma was not seen much in the matches in the opening week but was seen being played by Paris a little bit. If Marve1 does play Sigma has he improved his play or is it at the same high level as last season. Marve1’s confidence is so high, that he even has a smurf account called ‘sigmaking’ in reference to his dominant performance on the hero. With Walid ‘Mouffin’ Bassal playing Sigma on Oasis against the Atlanta Reign anticipation is rising for the Tiger Nation to see Marve1 play again.
2. Youngwan ‘Creative’ Kim — Ana
Creative is the youngest and newest member of the Seoul Dynasty to the Overwatch League. He has a lot to live up to, but if Korean Contenders is any indication of what is to come, then his Ana play will make him a standout addition to the team. Creative is on the Dynasty alongside two heavyweight support players next to him in the form of Tobi and Seungtae ‘Bdosin’ Choi. The Ana play that Creative is most known for his sleep darts, so it will be interesting to see him up against the likes of Sunghyeon ‘JJoNak’ Bang and Jooseok ‘Twilight’ Lee who are prolific Ana’s in their own right.
1. Junyoung ‘Profit’ Park — Tracer
Profit and Tracer are almost synonymous with each other. With the GOATs meta last season the Overwatch fans got very little of DPS Profit. Tracer was seen multiple times within the first week of play of Season 3. It is not a stretch to see Profit back on the hero that he is most well known for. GC Busan, London Spitfire, and Seoul Dynasty fans will all be looking forward to seeing him blinking around the map and picking up ‘big bang’ combo kills. With the return of Terence ‘SoOn’ Tarlier on Tracer in Week 5 and the Diva meta making a slight comeback with the introduction of hero pools; Tiger Nation are looking forward to seeing their own legendary Tracer pop off in-game.
