  • Dong-gyu “Mano” Kim — New York Excelsior
  • Hyo-bin “ChoiHyoBin” Choi — San Francisco Shock
  • Hyeon-Woo “JJANU” Choi — Vancouver Titans


  • Minho “Architect” Park — San Francisco Shock
  • Jae-hyeok “Carpe” Lee — Philadelphia Fusion
  • Gui-un “Decay” Jang — LA Gladiators
  • Hyojong “Haksal” Kim — Vancouver Titans
  • Yeon-kwan “Nenne” Jeong — New York Excelsior


  • Taesung “Anamo” Jung — New York Excelsior
  • Seung-tae “Bdosin” Choi — London Spitfire
  • Ho-jin “iDK” Park — Hangzhou Spark
  • Young-seo “KariV” Park — LA Valiant

Crusty also revealed that a few players declined to participate in the Overwatch World Cup this year, naming Jae-hee “Gesture” Hong, Jun-ho “Fury” Kim, last year’s World Cup MVP, Sung-hyeon “JJoNak” Bang, and Min-seong “diem” Bae, unfortunately denying us the chance of a Carpe diem DPS lineup.

Crusty also explained that Kariv and Bdosin were chosen over Vancouver Titans star support and MVP finalist, Ju-Seok “Twilight” Lee, because he didn’t perform as well in the mixed roster tryouts.

Anamo and iDK were also chosen over the Titans other support player, Sung-jun “SLIME” Kim, because they complimented Bdosin and Kariv better.

There’s also a reason why Architect was picked over other star DPS players like Byung-sun “Fleta” Kim and Hae-seong “Libero” Kim.

“If I were the NYXL coach, I would have picked Libero. If I were the Seoul coach I would have picked Fleta. But I’m coaching Architect, and that’s why I picked him,” said Crusty.
