Shanghai Dragons’ Fleta Wins 2020 Overwatch League MVP
Shanghai Dragon’s insanely talented DPS player (and Widowmaker extraordinaire) has been announced as the 2020 Overwatch League MVP! No one should be overly surprised at the result, given Fleta’s incredible performances. Ever since he was picked up by the Shanghai Dragons last November, Fleta has managed to stand out in all the right ways. These days, Fleta is pretty much a household name; from the moment this prodigious DPS behemoth stepped foot on the OWL stage to compete, he took little time to ascend the DPS ranks.
A Dominant Performance
During the first two years of the Overwatch League, Fleta’s weekly performances under the Seoul Dynasty banner often took center stage. And he wasn’t dominant only on his staple Widowmaker pick either — Fleta can dominate regardless of the hero. That was true back when he was playing for Lunatic Hai (even before OWL), and it’s still true to this day. Fortunately, he’s finally been given the right award to prove it!
Fleta’s incredible prowess often pushed Shanghai over the finish line, and his ability to pick up Echo and dominate in equal measure is yet another testament to his resilience and ability to adapt. The Dragons are obviously stacked with talent from head to toe, but Fleta still found a way to stand out. As a team, they’ve had the most dominant regular-season run in history, with a staggering win/loss tally: twenty-seven wins and just two losses. That’s pretty much the definition of dominant. The Dragons are currently ranked as the number one team and have won almost every single tournament and cup that happened throughout 2020.
They’ll face off against Philadelphia Fusion (the second best team from North America) on October 8th in the 2020 Overwatch League Grand Finals. All four competing teams (two from Asia and two from North America) will convene in Asia to compete on even footing. Going forward, the margin for error will be non-existent. After all, there’s $1.5 million on the line!
