SAEBYEOLBE – NEW YORK EXCELSIOR – TRACER
New York Excelsior ended this stage as back-to-back champions, beating out Los Angeles Gladiators, Los Angeles Valiant, and Boston Uprising in the stage three title matches. They went undefeated in their two title matches, and this was aided by some amazing plays by DPS player Saebyeolbe on Tracer.
He was the sole Player of the Day on Sunday, with Overwatch League caster Robert Kirkbride saying, “Generally we pick two [Players of the Day] but we think this is an exception because there was one player who was straight up better in every aspect of the game and that is Saebyeolbe… he has that extra gear and he finds it when everything is on the line.”
Examples of this extra gear can be seen above and below. During the final map against Boston Uprising on Numbani to win the stage he masterfully gets a 5K, killing off almost the entire team to end overtime and secure the win. On Volskaya Industries, he goes off again getting a 6K while taking out both supports, Widow, D.Va, Tracer, Winston, and Tracer all while barely sacrificing 150 health points.
Another absolutely ruthless play below as well, as Seabyeolbe gets a 3K to finish off a team kill on Route 66.
There’s no denying Saebyeolbe’s skills, as time and time again he absolutely blows through enemies with ease with expert tracking and use of Tracer’s kit to survive almost any instance. He is a big reason New York ended this stage as back-to-back champions, and is arguably the best Tracer in the league at the moment.
