The Overwatch League’s Watchpoint show has put together a top 10 plays based on fan engagement.
The inaugural season of the Overwatch League is coming to an end, with only one match – the grand finals – left to play.
Season One was filled with incredible moments and epic plays, making narrowing down a list of “top” plays very difficult. To help simplify things, Watchpoint has collected a list of the most popular plays of the season according to fan engagement – how much the clips were viewed, shared, and talked about.
The result is a collection of some of the most iconic moments of the first season. From Sebastian ‘Chipsajen’ Widlund’s battle-mercy on day one to ridiculous Widowmaker play from Lee ‘Carpe’ Jae-hyeok in the playoffs, the countdown covers a broad spectrum of epic plays.
Only two players make the list more than once, with LA Gladiators’ Baek ‘Fissure’ Chan-hyung contributing clips as both Reinhardt and Winston, while Florida Mayhem’s Ha ‘Sayaplayer’ Jung-woo makes two appearances on Widowmaker.
Perhaps unsurprisingly, Widowmaker is the most prolific hero in the list, with four of the ten plays being with the sniper, with three further plays coming from other DPS heroes.
Season One of the Overwatch League will conclude on July 27-28 with the grand finals between Philadelphia Fusion and London Spitfire, taking place in the Barclays Center, New York.
