Seoul Dynasty’s Gong ‘Miro’ Jin-hyuk showed off his insane Winston skills with an epic play while streaming.
Winston has been a staple of the elite tier of competition for so long that it’s hard to remember a time before he was played consistently. Early in the game’s life-cycle, however, even the world’s best players hadn’t figured out how to get enough out of him to sacrifice the barrier that Reinhardt offers.
One player almost single-handedly changed the game by proving just how impactful a great Winston could be. Miro’s use of the hero was for a time uniquely exceptional, and a big part of the reason that Lunatic-Hai became the best team in the world.
In the Overwatch League era Miro has long since been dropped from conversations about the best main tank in the world, and even the best Winston player. However, he still has an instinctive grasp of the hero that only the greatest players will ever match.
During a recent stream, Miro showed off the skills that made his Winston play so innovative, the precision use of a hero that was once considered blunt and mechanically limited. After using his Primal Rage to help repel a push on Nepal, Miro turned to a flanking Pharah, diving her with perfectly calculated use of his abilities and solo-killing her in mid air despite the use of her ultimate.
