Stanislav ‘Mistakes’ Danilov had some fun with a Twitter call out of star DPS player Jong-ryeol ‘Saebyeolbe’ Park following NYXL’s disappointing exit from the Overwatch League Playoffs.

NYXL announced that Saebyeolbe would be throwing out the first pitch at a Mets game and Mistakes took advantage of the unfortunate choice of words.

Mistakes referenced NYXL and Saebyeolbe throwing away their chance at an Overwatch League championship.

Some were quick to point out that Saebyeolbe was scheduled to throw out the first pitch at a game earlier in the year, but the event was canceled due to rain.

Due to the initial rainout, Mistakes could have been asking a harmless question about him already throwing out a first pitch.

Regardless of his intentions, the tweet was interpreted as a clever attack on NYXL.

NYXL lost only six of their 40 matches in the inaugural Overwatch League season, running away with first place and even leading some to question the league’s competitiveness.

The playoffs were a different story as NYXL was knocked out in their first match to the sixth seed Philadelphia, a team that finished 10 games behind in the regular season.

Coincidentally, Mistakes and his Boston squad were also knocked out by Philadelphia in the previous round.

The Overwatch League is over for both players but the Overwatch World Cup is right around the corner.

Saebyeolbe will have a chance to respond to Mistakes on August 19 when South Korea and Russia square off in the group stage of the World Cup.
