New York Excelsior

Excelsior, meaning ‘ever upward’ in Latin – is inspired by our home, New York City. The shorthand NYXL evokes the city at its strongest: a place of bigger dreams with unbeatable hustle and soul. The crossed flag logo represents different people, cultures, and ideas coming together to reach new heights. With these ideals at our core, NYXL has already established its legacy in Overwatch League. Home of 2018’s league best record and overall league MVP, the list of accolades continues to grow for this dynamic team. Join us as we extend this winning tradition through 2020’s OWL season.

Ever Upward

Seonghyun Bang Osan, South Korea

Seonghyun (JJonak) Bang was never able to perform well in school, no matter how hard he tried. But gaming came easy to him. He started playing a popular FPS (GetAmped) before exploring team tactics like Overwatch.His tag is a combination of two Korean words (jjomulak and nakji) meaning fumbling octopus. Widely considered one of the best support players in the world for his immaculate Zenyatta and Ana play. His performance in the 2018 season gave him a spot on the 2018 OWL All Star team and the honor of overall league MVP. He was also voted to the 2019 OWL All Star team.
