Shock Dominate SEO to Become Back-to-Back Overwatch League Champions
San Francisco Shock took down the Seoul Dynasty at the Overwatch League Grand Finals 2020 to become the league’s first-ever two-time champions.
A strong start in Oasis and King’s Row put SF up 2-0. In game 3, Shock had a chance to get to match in Hanamura, a map they have not lost in two years, until now. Seoul rallied back with their signature comp featuring the Ham/Sigma tank duo paired with Mercy/Ana and flexible DPS. With momentum on their side, they take Map 4 in Watchpoint: Gibraltar as well. Park “Profit” Joon-yeong stepped up with a surprise Genji pick, and with clutch Nanoblades, managed to hold SF to a full 3-0 hold.
In Map 5, Shock picked Busan, another comfort map for them. With their superior defense around points, they managed to take both points to go up 3-2 for match point. Going to Hollywood for Map 6, Seoul clutched the defense to keep Shock from map completion. Despite their best efforts however, Shock’s defense was too much and fend off Dynasty.
With the win, they go up 4-2 and become the Overwatch League Champions for the second year in a row.
