Libero

South Korea
New York Excelsior
A perfect distraction
February 12, 2018
Libero drew the attention of the London Spitfire for the New York Excelsior's 3-2 victory on Saturday.
ANALYSIS
Libero forced the Spitfire to pay attention to him, so much so that they forgot about the rest of the team. However, it's not like they could ignore him either. If left to his own devices, Libero would gut the backline taking out Nus or Bdosin. Libero is a force in his own that gives the Excelsior tons of options in every fight.
Plays the chipper role
January 22, 2018
Libero never saw the bench in the New York Excelsior's 4-0 sweep of the Los Angeles Gladiators.
ANALYSIS
As the Excelsior often found themselves running three DPS players, Libero often took on the role of the chip damage dealer. Playing as heroes like Junkrat and Soldier: 76, Libero provided a large amount of blanket damage and allowed his fellow DPS partners to take care of the rest.
Dominates Houston in good showing
January 15, 2018
Libero had his first breakout performance of the season on Saturday as the NYXL took a 3-1 win over the Houston Outlaws.
ANALYSIS
Libero's eclectic hero pool made him a household name early in his career on Meta Athena but he hasn't been able to convert that success into the OWL, where fans questioned why he was starting over Pine. On Saturday, Libero finally started to show some of his old top-tier performances, dominating the DPS role with several different characters while keeping Houston's DPS in check. Libero certainly might not be as good as Pine on heroes like McCree, but his versatility and efficiency is certainly impressive.
Goes toe to toe with Fleta in the air
December 15, 2017
Libero played a variety of heroes in New York Excelsior's 1-3 loss at the hands of Seoul Dynasty on the final day of the preseason.
ANALYSIS
While Libero spent some time on Zenyatta at points in this series, by far his most memorable moments came while playing Pharah. Early on in his time on the high-flying hero, he was getting picked apart by Fleta. Libero wasn't put off by his early misgivings, however. He stuck with it and came back to make some nice plays. At one moment during the final round on Ilios, he managed to come up big and take out both parts of Seoul's Pharmercy to give his team some hope at pulling out a victory. It wasn't enough in the end, but it was a valiant effort that could have done wonders against a lesser team.
