The Los Angeles Gladiators took the stage at Blizzard Arena with newcomer Gui-un “Decay” Jang on Zarya, and this OWL rookie’s debut was an excellent showing.
There’s been a fair amount of buzz surrounding Decay’s debut, and it seems that it’s well earned. Los Angeles lost to London Spitfire 1-2, having pulled out a tie map on Numbani. Decay, however, proved that he can more than hang with the pros, drumming up stats equivalent to the opposing Profit. Decay poured out an impressive average of twelve thousand damage per ten minutes, rocketing up to the number two spot in the league overall.
While this is his first time competing in Overwatch League, Decay isn’t new to the world of professional Overwatch. He played in two seasons of Overwatch Contenders in Korea in 2018, and has been building his reputation in tournaments since 2017.
Congratulations to Decay for a strong debut, and I’m wishing him the best in the upcoming season.
