40: Jin-hyeok “DDing” Yang – Shanghai Dragons

DDing’s Pharah and Sombra play was undoubtedly one of the driving forces that led the Shanghai Dragons to the Stage Three Title. Shaking up the established GOATS meta, the Dragons’ triple-DPS lineup was nigh-unbeatable, bolstered by the constant damage and pressure from DDing. He played Pharah almost two times longer on stage than anyone else, so there’s no player more consistent on that hero in the league. – Matthew “Setanta” Kennedy

39: Tae-Hoon “Edison” Kim – Atlanta Reign

Edison might not have the name recognition of his fellow OWL rookies, Alarm and Sp9rk1e, but he probably should. After nearly two years on a perpetually underperforming GC Busan Wave squad, he’s about to be surrounded by talent on his level in Atlanta. Don’t be surprised if Edison lights up the league alongside Reign DPS partner Erster or if he takes home Rookie of the Year honors. – Bradley “Shy Guy” Long

38: Hae-seong “Libero” Kim – New York Excelsior

One of the most versatile DPS players in the history of Overwatch, Libero continues to age like a fine wine for the NYXL. In 2020, he’ll look to continue to hone his dominant skills on one of the several projectile DPS characters he has made his legacy on up until this point. – Connor “GoopyKnoopy” Knudsen

37: Lane “Surefour” Roberts – Toronto Defiant

In a league with new superstars coming up (and fading out) all the time, nothing secures a player’s legacy like consistency. If we’d made this list at any time in the last three years, Surefour probably still would have been on it. Many a team has cursed his name for stopping what looked like a won fight in its tracks. Whether it’s a last-second clutch or a Bamboozle for the ages, he’s the guy you count on to make the play. – Rainee “JeziBelle” Scott

36: Jong-ryeol “Saebyeolbe” Park – New York Excelsior

A leadership figure through and through and, at one time, the best Tracer in the world. Saebyeolbe has dominated in his strongest metas and survived to thrive in his worst metas. He may be missing his front teeth, but he never fails to put a smile on everyone’s faces. – Brad “BradRK” Killion

35: Yi “JinMu” Hu – Chengdu Hunters

A microcosm of the Hunters’ playstyle, JinMu made himself known through his skillful and gutsy DPS play in a meta defined by tanks and supports. Onstage he has excelled especially on Pharah and Doomfist, but also Hanzo, Genji and Junkrat. His deep hero pool and bold play allowed the team to go toe-to-toe with the top teams this season. – Matthew “Setanta” Kennedy

34: Sung-jun “SLIME” Kim – Vancouver Titans

On a team packed with superstar talent, SLIME still manages to stand out every time he’s on stage. Striking a perfect balance between aggression and intelligence, SLIME’s top-tier Lúcio play will be a big part of the Titans’ success if they make it to the championship for a second time. – Gabby “Tattletale” Hidalgo

33: Jonas “Shaz” Suovaara – Los Angeles Gladiators

Shaz is a player that often goes under the radar. Discussions about flex supports are
usually dominated by flashy, aggressive players who pump out highlight reels, but Shaz’s peerless consistency and supportive playstyle make him the indispensable backbone of the Gladiators backline that the team is rebuilding around this year. – Gabby “Tattletale” Hidalgo

32: Matthew “super” DeLisi – San Francisco Shock

Super has been an integral part of both the San Francisco Shock and Team USA. With a full year under his belt, he has established himself as a major part of a championship-caliber team. A virtuoso on all characters tanky, he is definitely an exciting character to watch. – Brad “BradRK” Killion

31: Byung-sun “Fleta” Kim – Shanghai Dragons

Fleta is yet another high-profile talent leaving the Seoul Dynasty this offseason, this time en route to the Shanghai Dragons. After stacking quality DPS players to successfully combat GOATS last season, the Dragons have yet another extraordinary offensive talent on their payroll. Fleta is a top-tier hitscan player, and it will be interesting to see how his talents complement the rest of the Shanghai roster. – London “pHydron” Bishop
