Choi “Bdosin” Seung-tae is unrelenting in his criticism of Philadelphia Fusion following London Spitfire’s easy victory in the Overwatch League Grand Finals.
Bdosin used his time in the post-final press conference to trash talk the Spitfire’s opposition, saying:
“I didn’t think it would be this easy. I hope next year we play against a stronger team.”
The Spitfire player has now added insult to injury in an interview with the Daily Mail.
Speaking on the final, Bdosin said:
“Watching Fusion play against NYXL, we thought if they came to the finals with what they had there we’d be able to defeat them handily,
“It was when we played on Lijiang Tower, Garden, and Eqo swapped from Pharah to Tracer, that’s when we knew we’d already won.”
Bdosin’s comments have prompted a mixed response from the Overwatch League community. Some find his willingness to speak his mind refreshing, while others feel that he is disrespecting his fellow professionals.
However, Bdosin admitted that he knows exactly what he is doing, and will continue to do. For Bdosin, it’s all part of the game.
“I like trash talking bad players,” he admitted.
The Spitfire pro added:
“There’s a reason behind it,
“It’s because everyone gets criticised when they play bad, including myself. I feel like that’s semi-warranted, and it’s entertaining to do.”
Of course, his comments are warranted. He just became one of the first players to win the biggest esports competition in Overwatch.
However, overconfidence leads to complacency. This is something that the organisation will have to monitor closely heading into season two if London Spitfire is to hold on to its crown next year.
“I’m worried about my confidence being too big. I can feel my ego growing. I need to keep it in check,” Bdosin admitted.
For Blizzard, Bdosin’s words will be welcomed. Part of the organisers’ game plan heading into the first season was to create storylines that got fans talking outside of the Blizzard Arena. This is undoubtedly what they had in mind.
