Fleta played for the Seoul Dynasty for the first two seasons of the Overwatch League. While always a fan favorite team with an above-average roster, the Dynasty never achieved outstanding results. 2018 passed without them making a single playoff appearance. In 2019, Seoul qualified for the Stage 1 playoffs and placed 3rd-4th, but this would be their best finish as an organization.
Throughout all of this, Fleta was a bright spot on their roster. His hitscan DPS play was always at high level. The consistency he brought to the Dynasty kept them afloat, even when others weren’t performing at their best.
Now on the Shanghai Dragons, Fleta will look to help elevate them to the next level. Shanghai’s bounce back after their 0-40 inaugural season was admirable to say the least. Their revamped roster managed to win the Stage 3 playoffs. The Dragons recently resigned the majority of that roster, and have now bolstered their ranks with Fleta.
The deadline for OWL teams to lock in their rosters is November 15. Many teams still have some vacancies to fill, but Shanghai’s roster is complete for the time being. Hopefully, the Dragons can continue building upon their recent success and become a frequent contender at the top.
