San Francisco Shock
Plays a slow, but defensive, Reinhardt
June 9, 2018
super played a defensive tank in a 2-1 loss to the New York Excelsior on Saturday of the Overwatch League Stage 4.
New York focused heavily on a double-sniper and projectile compositions this series. super attempted to play into this by playing shield tanks like Reinhardt for most of the series, using the hero's shields to safely ferry his team onto the objective. Unfortunately, super's Reinhardt wasn't mobile enough to shutdown New York as his opponents attempted to play from afar and on high-ground. This put super in the difficult position of attempting to absorb huge amounts of damage as his team slowly crawled to the objective. While he was able to mitigate a lot of damage, having a uncanny ability to keep his shields healthy, super's lack of mobility allowed New York to rotate around them.
Evolves his hero pool and gameplay
June 1, 2018
super coordinated with his team to pull off a 3-1 win over the Dallas Fuel on Thursday of the Overwatch League Stage 4.
When first joining the team, super could only play an aggressive Winston that had a tendency to get caught overextending. Now, super is a flexible and well-coordinated tank player for the Shock. His Winston continued to stomp enemy support players but he only commits to fights when the rest of his team can commit to a fights. This allowed super to steamroll Dallas on King's Row. On Oasis, his Orisa was key in protecting Babybay, zoning enemy players and shielding his teammates from harm. In only a short amount of time, super has grown massively.
Softens up his oppenents

super opens the map for his teammates in a 4-0 win over the Dallas Fuel of the Overwatch League.
San Francisco's tanks were on fire this series and super's Winston was no exception. The slow and uncoordinated Florida Mayhem were the perfect fodder for super's unique ability to breed chaos. super was able to easily dive Florida's backline to pressure and zone his opponents before the rest of his team followed up to clean-up kills. This had the unfortunate side effect of making super look limp, but he was extraordinarily important to the Shock's playstyle. By softening his opponents up, super's teammates like Nevix and Architect had an extraordinarily easy time slaying Florida.
Falls in sync with his teammates

super put the screws to Philadelphia Fusion in a 3-1 win on Friday of the Overwatch League.
super laid the down pressure onto Philadelphia Fusion's tanks with his now signature Winston. While at the start of Stage 3 he's been out of sync with the rest of his team, often overextending and going out of sight of his support players, super has turned that around in this series. He was rarely ever too far from his support players and he always had an escape plan. This allowed him to bully Philadelphia's tanks to the point that they needed a Mercy to pocket their Winston on Route 66. super's aggression and coordination allowed him to easily handle the frontline and expose his opponents' backline.
Deepens his hero pool

super expanded from Winston into more versatile heroes in a 4-0 win over the Dallas Fuel on Wednesday of the Overwatch League.
One of the major criticisms one can lay at super is his over-aggression and his limited hero pool. super fixed at least one of these problems this series. No longer just sitting to Winston, super was able to flex to other tanks like Orisa and Roadhog to give his team more options and tactics. His Orisa was surprisingly effective in Temple of Anubis, where he was able to easily set up on top of Point A and lock down the Dallas Fuel. However, his Roadhog was far more effective for his team on Junkertown. The beefy hero allowed super to play aggressively while Roadhog's limited movement prevented him from over-extending. He was able to easily sweep the first point with some smooth hooks, while Roadhog's Whole Hog ultimate allowed him to easily push Dallas away form the objective and clutch the map.
Jet packs head first into tanks

super nearly out-tanked Seoul Dynasty in a 4-0 loss on Friday of the Overwatch League.
super continues to be a show-stopping player for San Francisco Shock, but he still needs to work on his coordination. Sticking only to Winston, super was able to easily harass Seoul Dynasty around the map. But his eagerness to charge his ult and to get kills put him in some precarious positions in Temple of Anubis on Shock's defense. super would quickly adapt across the series, only to be shut down by the Dynasty's tanks. Essentially, super could lay down damage but he couldn't lay down enough damage to secure kills on Dynasty's frontline.
Dives onto his opponents
April 4, 2018
super played a sometimes overly-aggressive game in a 3-1 win over Los Angeles Gladiators on Wednesday of the Overwatch League Stage 3.
Making his main stage debut, super played an aggressive game, though he overextended at points in his eagerness to get kills. In the first three maps, super played Winston in order to secure picks for Sinatraa and Danteh, a tactic he pulled off excellently on the first attack of Volskaya Industry. A particularly impressive moment saw super score three kills before jumping away to safety with only one health, again in the first San Francisco attack of Volskaya Industry. However, in the same map super was overeager to get kills, often over-committing to fights and leaving his backline exposed.
