BlizzCon 2019 was home to yet another first, as Team United States defeated Team China in the Overwatch World Cup 2019 Finals. They even managed to defeat the three-time World Cup champions, South Korea, twice.

The United States dominated Group A in a 4-0 sweep, with France and South Korea following behind. China also topped Group B with a clean sweep as well against Denmark, Netherlands, Russia and Canada. During the Playoffs, the United States beat South Korea in the Semifinals 3-1, while China defeated France 3-1. With both teams at the top of their game, the United States faced off against China in the Finals.

Unfortunately for Team China, they couldn’t hold down the United States in late-game situations. Map two, King’s Row, in particular, was theirs, but the team failed to shut down a strong late push by the United States. China didn’t fare any better on Dorado, map three, where Jay “Sinatraa” Won and the crew controlled virtually every aspect of the map, leading to a sweep in the Finals.

For his superb play, Sinatraa was awarded the T-Mobile MVP award by way of votes from the audience in the arena and on Twitch. In the after-match interview, the MVP stated, “It means the world to me obviously, but I definitely have to give it up to my team. Without them, I would literally be nothing. I think Corey should have got MVP personally. Big shoutout to Corey who popped off, but yeah, I’m just happy.”

Team United States’ winning roster includes:

  • Corey Nigra - DPS (Washington Justice

  • Jay “Sinatraa” Won - DPS (San Francisco Shock

  • Kyle “KSF” Frandanisa - DPS (Los Angeles Valiant

  • Matthew “Super” DeLisi - Main tank (San Francisco Shock

  • Indy “SPACE” Halpern - Offtank (Los Angeles Gladiators

  • Grant “Moth” Espe - Main support (San Francisco Shock)  

  • Shane “Rawkus” Flaherty - Flex support (Houston Outlaws

Team United States spectacularly broke South Korea’s hold on the World Cup and has set the bar even higher in competitive Overwatch
