Lee is a flex support player mainly known for his mechanical skill on Ana and Zenyatta. With Vancouver Titans, Lee played alongside Sung-jun "SLIME" Kim when Jehong "ryujehong" Ryu didn’t take the flex support position. The team managed to reach the second place of the Overwatch League 2019 Playoffs, losing 0-4 to Lee’s new team, San Francisco Shock.
Will Twilight replace Moth?
San Francisco Shock already has two other support players: Grant "moth" Espe and Minki "Viol2t" Park. The addition of Lee and his Ana/Zenyatta plays will allow San Francisco Shock to rotate their supports and adapt to more situations. Park and Lee can easily master the Baptiste/Zenyatta duo, while Espe stays as the Shock’s main support player.
The current meta favors the Baptiste and Zenyatta composition, which may lead to Espe being benched some games. However, Espe is San Francisco Shock’s main shotcaller, leading the team and tracking enemies’ ultimates. Lee is also an in-game leader, and as San Francisco Shock is now almost full of South Korean player it could give him an edge over Edge, who is the sole American player with Matthew "super" DeLisi.
As Espe’s leadership is key to the San Francisco Shock’s success, it is unlikely that Lee will bench him. However, a third support player gives more room to try new strategies and team compositions. The two other support players can also rest a bit more, as they will not have to play every single game.
