New York Excelsior
USA
Questionable decisions
July 19, 2018
JJoNak had some great moments during the 3-0 loss to the Philadelphia Fusion in the semifinals playoffs but also had some very questionable plays and hero choices as well.
ANALYSIS
JJoNak is an incredible player that has helped and saved the Excelsior several times in the past year, and kept the team in the game for as long as he could in the face of defeat, but he also swapped over to Roadhog and Ana for brief spells on Eichenwalde. Needless to say both were not effective choices or decisions, and even when he was on Zenyatta, he sometimes wandered off on his own just to get picked off for free.
Sloppy performance in Playoffs
July 19, 2018
Pine looked really sloppy during the 3-0 loss to the Philadelphia Fusion in the semifinals playoff on Wednesday
ANALYSIS
Pine is usually an up or down player. Sometimes he comes in like the hero in the last quarter to save the series or sometimes he just flops outright. In the playoffs against the Fusion, it was a flop. He didn't do particularly well on any of the maps played, and him getting picked off by Support neptuno in the last push of the first map, Dorado, was a big reason for the loss, since without him the team couldn't complete the final push, starting the series off on the wrong foot.
Lackluster in first defeat of playoffs
July 19, 2018
Saebyeolbe had minimal impact during 3-0 loss to the Philadelphia Fusion in first semifinals match on Wednesday.
ANALYSIS
While his Tracer was still extremely spot on, his Widowmaker was rendered ineffective due to the opposing DPS combo of Eqo and Carpe, specifically the latter. Saebyeolbe is going to be a key factor in if New York wins the semifinals so if he can bring it together back to his usual standards of play, then the team has a chance.
Voted to starting roster of the Atlantic Division
June 26, 2018
ArK will continue his impressive season with a starting nod on the Atlantic Division's All-Star roster later this summer.
ANALYSIS
ArK was one of four Excelsior players voted to the starting roster of the Atlantic Division's All-Star team. He and JJoNak will reunite as the starting support duo, while Pine and Saebyeolble will be on DPS duties along with Carpe. Rounding out the roster is Gesture who will be the starting tank. This is one of the most stacked rosters we've seen and they are certainly the favorites to win the first All-Star Game in the OWL.
Takes his highlight reel plays to the All-Star Game
June 26, 2018
Pine will be on the starting roster for the Atlantic Division at this August's All-Star Game, Blizzard has announced.
ANALYSIS
With some of the biggest and most hyped plays of the entire season, Pine will look to make the All-Star Game another fun experience to close out the inaugural season of the Overwatch League. He should feel right at home with three of his Excelsior teammates (JJoNak, Saebyeolble, and ArK) also being named to the starting roster. The remaining 12 members of the Atlantic Division roster will be announced this July.
