We asked Overwatch League pros to tell us what they’re most looking forward to during the 2019 Overwatch League season:

Indy "Space" Halpern, Los Angeles Valiant

Definitely playing against the new teams. I’m excited to see the new rosters and how we stack up against them.

Chan-Hyung "Fissure" Baek, Seoul Dynasty

The rise of the Seoul Dynasty!

Kristian "Kellex" Keller, Boston Uprising

Getting to know my new teammates and playing with them.

Grant “Moth” Espe, San Francisco Shock

I'm just excited to start scrimming with my team again. I miss playing with everyone and the 2019 season is our redemption arc.

Weida "Diya" Lu, Shanghai Dragons


Je-Hong "Ryujehong" Ryu, Seoul Dynasty

There will be more teams for the new season, so I am really looking forward to it.

Joona "Fragi" Laine, Philadelphia Fusion

I’m super excited to keep working on the foundation we established during the 2018 season, and to hopefully duplicate and exceed the success we had. It will be fun to see all my teammates again and play against all the new teams and players as well!

Aaron "Bischu" Kim, Los Angeles Gladiators

I'm mostly excited for the season to start so I can compete again. Having time off is great—don't get me wrong—but I feel like every pro misses the competition after some time off.

Byung-Sun "Fleta" Kim, Seoul Dynasty

The 2019 Overwatch League season!

Alberto "Neptuno" González Molinillo, Philadelphia Fusion

The most exciting thing for next season is to compete again. Being onstage is a feeling I miss, and I can’t wait for it anymore. There’s nothing similar. I want to win games onstage!

Scott "Custa" Kennedy, Los Angeles Valiant

I'm looking forward to the hype that gets built as the season gets closer. It's a long break and I think post-World Cup everyone is going to be excited for the new expansion teams and to see their favorite teams return. It will be great to be back onstage again.

Lucas "Note" Meissner, Boston Uprising

Getting back into the rhythm of competition and playing against a bunch of new players and teams is going to be super interesting. I'm really excited for it!

Se-Yeon “Geguri” Kim, Shanghai Dragons

I’m most excited to get the first win. We have a great head coach, Seung-Hwan "BlueHaS" Wi, and I believe he can lead us to victory.

Young-Jin "Gamsu" Noh, Boston Uprising

I'm excited for the expansion teams. It's good to have more teams to compete against.

João Pedro "Hydration" Goes Telles, Los Angeles Gladiators

I'm most excited to face new players, new teams, and play new maps and heroes for the 2019 season!

Pan-Seung "Fate" Koo, Los Angeles Valiant

I think it’s the new teams. I want to see where all the Korean Contenders players end up.

Matthew “Super” DeLisi, San Francisco Shock

I just want to be able to prove that I'm better than I was last season and that the offseason grind has been worth it because I thought I was doing okay last season, but that wasn't enough for me.  

Joon-Hyeok "Zunba" Kim, Seoul Dynasty

There are now eight more teams in the league, so I think it’ll be exciting.
