Erster was one of the most promising rookies in the Overwatch League 2019 Season. The flex DPS proved his worth on Genji and Pharah in the Overwatch Contenders — winning both Seasons 1 and 2 of the Overwatch Contenders 2018 China with his team Lucky Future Zenith.

However, the Overwatch League 2019 and 2020 Seasons didn’t go as well for Erster. Even if his team, the Atlanta Reign, didn’t finish at the bottom of the Regular Season, Erster and his teammates didn’t manage to qualify for the Playoffs.

Erster is joining a new team for the Overwatch League 2021 Season: the Shanghai Dragons. He is the latest addition to an all-star roster, who already won the Overwatch League 2020 Regular Season and placed 3rd in the Grand Finals.

Erster shares the same hero pool with Overwatch League 2020 Regular Season MVP Byung-sun “Fleta” Kim. Meaning he'll probably fill in for the players when the situation requires it. Fleta and Jae-won “LIP” Lee form a working duo — so Erster will need to make his own place if he wants to secure some playtime.

The Shanghai Dragons almost have a full roster, with 3 tanks, 3 DPS, and 2 support players. The team will probably look for an additional support player, to assist Jae-gon “LeeJaeGon” Lee and Min-chul “IZaYaKI” Kim; respectively main and flex support players of the Shanghai Dragons.
