  • Jae-Hui "Gesture" Hong (London Spitfire, Tank)

Pacific Division

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?

      Fan voting is an awful way to pick All Star teams (take note, MLB).

      - There are many better off tanks better than Geguri in PAC
      - One of custa's supposed strengths is his communication, but that's not gonna fly so well with the language barrier
      - Pine as flex tank?
      - Ryujaehong has been eclipsed by a number of other supports
      - Fleta is not more deserving than architect, agilities, soon, surefour, hydration, or ado

      My interest in all star games is low to begin with so not putting the best of the best on the field means I may not even tune in. Small loss if there's gonna be 200k viewers, I know.

      Weird setups. Pacific has two flex tanks and no flex DPS. Seagull, while he has a large hero pool, has been maining D.va for months now, but since they have Geguri he has to play flex DPS even though in OWL he's had a stronger D.va so far. Ryujehong is a weird pick since there are stronger off healers, especially in the Zen pool.

      On Atlantic, you have two hit scan specialists along with SBB on Tracer with no off tank.
