The first entry in our top 5 is the Vancouver Titans, the rookie all-star team blasted through 2019 and just about every team uncontested until the San Francisco Shock challenged them mid-season.

The Vancouver Titans’ run last year was unprecedented for an expansion team within the Overwatch League. Complete and utter dominance was the name of the game for the former Contenders champions. When the 2-2-2 role lock went into effect, the Titans didn’t miss a beat; as Hyojong "Haksal" Kim picked up Genji with no hesitation.

Seasoned players added to the mix

The Canadian expansion team had some heavy losses in the off-season despite only releasing four members. The insane main tank line of the Titans was lost with Sangbeom “Bumper” Park and Janghyeon “TiZi” Hwang leaving the team in November of last year. Flex player Minsoo “SeoMinSoo” Seo was a damage player primarily in 2018 during Contenders Korea. But with GOATS, he filled a tank slot as Zarya.

To provide some extra coverage in the tank department, the Titans brought none other than “Chanhyung “Fissure” Baek out of retirement for this season. If the team already didn’t have enough star-power, the Titans also picked up Jehong “ryujehong” Ryu from the Seoul Dynasty.

The Vancouver Titans were always a primarily young Korean team. The addition of Ryujehong and Fissure could provide leadership and guidance that may have been missing.
