Looking Back

2016 saw the launch of the inaugural Overwatch World Cup with all-star players. Fan communities from all over the world nominated hundreds of the world’s most dynamic players to represent their countries.

The final sixteen national teams made the trip to BlizzCon, where single-elimination finals took South Korea’s pro players from local professional teams including Lunatic Hai and Afreeca Freecs to glory on the BlizzCon 2016 stage.

I've followed the OW scene since the beginning, even getting the amazing opportunity to play in the World Cup last year - worked to cast/analyze at a few tournaments with top 500 every season.

I was the founder and captain of one of the most successful teams in OW, Cloud9, and participated in nearly 50 tournaments.  I have experience working with all the best NA players, as well as an unparalled desire to win.

Jason Kaplan

I've been around the game as a content creator and caster since beta. I've also been playing at a top level being Top 500 in Season 2 and 3. It would be an honor to represent the United States in the council and find the best 6 players to represent us.
