Lets talk about Fleta

Obviously, Fleta has burst onto the scene and might just be the best player in the world. He is just unstoppable on Widow. The thing that baffles me is that he played on Flash Lux, one of the worst teams in Korea. Was he always a standout? If so, is there a different culture in Korea where you get signed to a team and stay on that team and try to get them to T1, rather then move to a better team for a better opportunity for success?

Does anyone have some background to give me on Fleta?

If you go back and watch his APEX matches you'll see just how good he was. Basically he was so much better than the rest of his team that he hard carries them even though the team couldn't win matches. So to answer your question, yes, he's always been a standout but now he has the support he needs to absolutely dominate because his mistakes won't automatically mean the instant loss of the engagement.

I've always liked Fleta and it was really painful to see what was such talent with so much potential being wasted on a team that couldn't keep up with him.

if you look at the stats from his time in apex, he was on an entirely different level than the rest of FL back then. while everyone knew he was better, i don't think many expected he was good enough to fit into a team as dominant as Lunatic Hai. makes me wonder if even he knew he was among the top DPS in the world after being on a team with no results for so long. FeelsAmazingMan to see Fleta on the team he deserves

I don't know if this is correct or not, but I seem to remember reading something about him being offered spots on better teams, even before he got famous for carrying FL, but he didn't want to move into a team house, because he had to support someone or something ( his mom? or maybe it was due to school) and the small pay overwatch pro's get in Korea wasn't worth moving for, now with the pay OWL players get it probably was worth it.

please tell me if im wrong, don't want to spread false rumours

I wrote some information about Fleta here. Fleta's first Overwatch team was Sion, Zion or whatever (as I could only know the team name in Korean) and birdring was his teammate there. They became friends of same age. After spending some time, birdring moved to Kongdoo and one of the requirements by Kongdoo was to live in their gaming house. Fleta did not apply for their tryout as he didn't want to leave his home at that time (I don't know the exact reason but that's not something related to money as it seems his family doesn't need his support) and moved to Conbox where he played support heroes like Mercy due to the team's request. Then Flash Lux offered him a DPS role and he moved to Flash Lux because he could still stay at home while playing for FL, as this amateur team couldn't afford their own gaming house and, also the team was in APEX, the premier Overwatch league in Korea. While staying in FL, he said on his stream that he received some offers from overseas teams (it is reportedly said EnVyUs contacted Fleta before signing EFFECT but not confirmed). But he said he didn't like to change his team too often.

Yeah, he's always been good. It's not just his aim. He has amazing game sense and broad hero pool. And it has been known for awhile to the extent that many people (including myself) have been saying that he should be picked up by Lunatic Hai. Not sure why he stayed in FL for so long, whether it's his loyalty to the team or the reason Loco mentioned above

In addition to his consistent and stellar performances, what I really like about Fleta is his refined attitude and demeanor which is a rare property among young people of these days. He never uses foul words or blame someone else while streaming his rank matches. He never gets angry or gives up matches despite he continues to meet a series of trollers and hackers. His personality stands out as there is a completely opposite example of Haksal. Haksal is an arguably outstanding player but he has caused a lot of controversies here in Korea as he very often uses swear words, insults other players and even gives up the matches during their courses just because something in the match turns out to be not in favor of him like facing trollers, hackers or team members not meeting his expectations during the rank matches.

Article from a couple of months ago, the only player to get more than 50% of his team kills in a match and he's done that twice.

jesus christ that article makes me sad. 1 game his number of kills exceeded the total number of all of his teammates' kills combined.
