Shanghai Dragons add BeBe to fill Molly's position.


The already stacked 2021 Overwatch League Champions bolster their roster even further.

The Unsung Hero

Hui-chang “BeBe” Hoon was the backline heavy lifter of the Washington Justice in 2021. As most fans know, he always did it with the biggest smile. Now, as He “Molly” Chengzhi leaves for the Guangzhou Charge, BeBe has stepped up to fill his place. He will be in tight contention for the Flex Support spot with Minchul “Izayaki” Kim. With JjoNak now out of the league, Izayaki is likely to come into this season as the best Flex Support in the league. Of course, there will be no competition between the teammates if the Dragons use a double Flex Support lineup. BeBe deserves time in the spotlight after three seasons of hard work and positivity. There's no better place for that than the Shanghai Dragons.

Dragons' Support Line

The Shanghai Dragons being an Eastern Division team means BeBe will face competitions he's not accustomed to. He competed against some of the teams in stage tournaments, but very infrequently. He has much to learn about the playstyle in the Eastern Division as he gets integrated into the team. With two Flex Supports and one Main Support on the team, it's questionable whether the Dragon's plan to use a conventional Support duo, or use a double Flex Support duo as it looks like other rosters are building towards. With Overwatch 2 being 5v5, it looks like some rosters are being built around high damage.

Whether we see Izayaki and BeBe together is uncertain be possible. Main Support Jae-Gon “LeeJaeGon” Lee would be a powerful weapon in the back pocket, but he's meant for greater things. What fans would likely want is all three players to be rotated in. This is unlikely though as BeBe has no noticeable skills above Izayaki's level.

Shanghai is more powerful than ever and has popular names to draw even more fans. It's hard to see this team failing in any way.
