Overwatch World Cup Rosters: 5 Strongest Rosters at the Event

Overwatch World Cup rosters have been decided. The top countries will be competing in the Overwatch World Cup at Blizzcon 2019 in November. The top five teams will have a bye for the main event, and were chosen based on their performance by the community.

Here are the rosters for those top five countries.

Overwatch World Cup Rosters

1. South Korea

Three time World Cup champion South Korea is back with an incredibly aggressive line up. The team seems unstoppable, but will this be the year they are finally dethroned? Team Korea is:

Minho “Architect” Park
Jae-hyeok “Carpe” Lee
Gui-un “Decay” Jang
Hyojong “Haksal” Kim
Yeon-kwan “Nenne” Jeong

Dong-gyu “Mano” Kim
Hyo-bin “ChoiHyoBin” Choi
Hyeon-Woo “JJANU” Choi

Taesung “Anamo” Jung
Seung-tae “Bdosin” Choi
Ho-jin “iDK” Park
Young-seo “KariV” Park

2. Canada

Canada took third in last year's World Cup, and this year they're bringing their top tier talent again. Team Canada will be:


Lane “Surefour” Roberts
Brady “Agilities” Girardi
Liam “Mangachu” Campbell


Félix “xQc” Lengyel
Lucas “NotE” Meissner
Shayne “Chayne” La Rocque


Chris “Bani” Benell
William “Crimzo” Hernandez
Blake “Zholik” Solberg

3. China

China isn't taking any chances, preparing their best for revenge after a disappointing 0:4 loss to South Korea in 2018. Almost all of the team is made from members of the Chengdu Hunters, who are currently fourth in the Overwatch League. Team China is:


Huang “leave” Xin
Ou “Eileen” Yiliang
Yi “JinMu” Hu


Xu “guxue” Qiulin
Luo “Elsa” Wenjie


Li “Yveltal” Xianyao
Kong “Kyo” Chunting

4. France

Team France, in response to confusion about their 12 national team slots, posted an explanation detailing why certain players made it and some didn't. They focused on DPS players, to maximize their flexibility given the new 2-2-2 role lock. It seems they cut a lot of their tank and support players, a risky move we'll have to see when they perform. Team France is comprised of:


Lucas “Leaf” Loison
Adam “Khegasi” Benaouadi
Terence “SoOn” Tarlier
William “Asking” Vetter
Dylan “aKm” Bignet
Jeremy “Hqrdest” Danton
Samir “Tsuna” Ikram


Simon “Chubz” Vullo
Gael “Poko” Gouzerch
Théo “Tek36” Guillebaud


Damien “HyP” Souville
Brice “FDGod” Monsçavoir

5. USA

The US Team have topped their Qualifier tournaments pretty handily, but have always had a disappointing 5-8 place showing at the World Cup. Their roster is nearly identical to 2018. Team USA is:

Dante “Danteh” Cruz
Corey “Corey” Nigra
Jay “sinatraa” Won
Kyle “KSF” Frandanisa
João Pedro “Hydration” Goes Telles


Austin “Muma” Wilmot
Matthew “super” DeLisi
Russell “FCTFCTN” Campbell
Indy “SPACE” Halpern


Nikola “sleepy” Andrews
