Just today, the Overwatch SEA YouTube channel just published a recent video announcing the top four teams who will be competing for glory on May 6. After a grueling top 8 match, it all boiled down to Vietnam teams The Beginner and CYZoneVN and Singaporean teams BBong and Unestablished.Juniors.
As you can tell from the picture below, eight teams were duking it out for the final four placements.
Here’s the complete breakdown of the four teams and how their playstyles are like.
The Beginner (Vietnam)
The Beginner likes to stay with their comfort picks, and employ incredible teamwork to land several combo Ultimates. Case in point: that amazing Zarya/Reinhardt combination against Team Random. Star player ‘SixGrenades’, who uses Reinhardt, has impeccable knowledge and understanding of when to play aggressively and when to activate the hero’s patented Barrier.
Team Members: ‘ShOta’, ‘Liao’, ‘SixGrenades’, ‘LLIB’, ‘Maicolelele’, and ‘WhySoEz’
Trademark Heroes: MaiCoLeLeLe’s Diva, SixGrenades’ Winston/ Reinhardt, WhySoEz’s Pharah/Genji
Formely VReborn, CYZoneVN are arguably the most experienced of the final 4 teams, having put on a great display of competitive play in The SEA Invitationals and finishing as runner-ups. CYZoneVN play style is hugely aggressive, always having at least one or more heroes to put pressure on the backline and support heroes of opposing teams.
Team Members: ‘Funky’, ‘KJerry’, ‘Maverick’, ‘Pihyrm’, ‘KNsshi’, ‘Papa’
Trademark Heroes: KJerry’s Diva, Funky’s Ana
BBong are a highly-synergistic team that rely and focus on their individual skills to pull off the win. For example, BBong’s previous group stage matches had ‘mnster’s Ana pull off two incredibly clutch sleep darts on ‘NutsuruSama’s Genji in the midst of his Dragonblade ultimate. The Singaporean team has an incredible vast array of heroes that they rely on, thus making them unpredictable and highly adaptive in any situation.
Team Members: ‘Script1’, ‘Elir’, ‘Kinzo’, ‘Treaty’, ‘Mnstr’, ‘Saviour’
Trademark Heroes: mnstr’s Ana, SaviorHeavier’s Zenyatta
UE.Juniors are renowned for their unorthodox picks and lineups, including a team lineup consisting of three snipers. This is something we rarely see in Overwatch competitive games, simply because it’s difficult to use and master. Against all odds, they managed to achieve wins against teams FeedTime and Keep Going Bois with this setup, earning them vital wins in their road to the finals.
UE.Juniors have great teamwork and trust in each other and it clearly shows in their play.
Team Members: ‘UERevenant’, ‘Yuki’, ‘fearLess’, ‘Teejay’, ‘Legend’, ‘RebornZ’
Trademark Heroes: TeeJay’s Widowmaker, UERevenant’s Reinhardt, Yuki’s Sombra
