If you’re looking for additional evidence that the Overwatch League is struggling to maintain interest, here’s a blow that is sure to interest both sides of the debate; Jay “Sinatraa” Won announced yesterday on Twitch that he is officially leaving the Overwatch League with defending champion San Francisco Shock in the middle of the season to play pro-level Valorant. Sinatraa was relatively frank about the fact that Overwatch has started to annoy him in recent months, but he was collecting a stable and decent paycheck while playing with those he grew up with over time.Overwatch League Pro Jay ‘Sinatraa’ Won Quits League Halfway Through For Valorant
Jay Won is a very public face of the Overwatch League; he won several awards during the 2019 season, which allowed Blizzard to create a custom skin for the hero Doomfist. The skin is not out yet, and Jay Won is leaving for good.
This will likely make everything a little awkward when the skin finally gets free, as they celebrate an incredible pasture that left the game in mid-season for greener pastures. There are only so many ways to see this, and very few of them seem good for Blizzard.
He came, he saw and he conquered.
