The final round of the 2020 Overwatch League Qualifiers ended in spectacular fashion, with the announcement of the 2020 League’s Best Player and the four teams qualifying for the 2020 Grand Finals.
Byung-sun “Fleita” Kim, the Shanghai Dragons’ injury player, was named the 2020 T-Mobile Overwatch League MVP Award for his star performance on a group of damage champions over the course of the regular season in helping the Dragons achieve the best record in the league.
Fleta’s pre-eminence and versatility over Overwatch champions Tracer, Echo and other damage champions also helped Shanghai advance across the Asia region and into the Overwatch League Finals, where they will be joined by the Philadelphia Blend, San Francisco Shock and Seoul dynasty.
“I think the Best Player award is the hardest award to get in (Overwatch League), and this is very useful to me, because it is choosing the best player out of all the players in the league,” said Fleita. “It was an honor to even get nominated, then get it. I’m really happy to be recognized for my hard work.”
