Some of its players' legacies, such as Sinatraa, Jjonak, Profit, Super, and others, have helped to establish and solidify the Overwatch League. Today, one of the league's leading personalities is putting the finishing touches on his chapter before the fifth season begins on May 5. Also known as Super AKAMatthew DeLisi, a tank with the San Francisco Shock, announced his departure from the Overwatch League today, wrapping up a four-year career.
He will leave the team's "competitive roster," according to the announcement. Super has been a part of the Overwatch community for over five years and has been one of the league's most recognizable players since his debut in 2018. The now-former San Francisco player made his debut as a 17-year-old, joining the Shock before he was even eligible. Later in his career**, he would play a key role in the team's title victories in 2019 and 2020 leading the team with imaginative and aggressive main tank tactics**. Super immediately established himself as being one of San Francisco's key players after becoming available to compete in March 2018.
Aside from his ability, Super has been nicknamed the "Face of the Overwatch League" because of his upbeat nature and effective communication. He appeared twice on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon to commemorate the Shock's championship win, and he has been a strong supporter of league players.
Super regularly expressed his discontent with the state of Overwatch on his regular live streams at the end of 2021, even inquiring why the devs abandoned the title. Despite his dissatisfaction, he was glad for the chance.
"I guess I just wanted to say thank you, and I appreciate all your support over the last five years," he stated in the video for Shock. "I will always be grateful for what I've been able to do over the last five years."
In a farewell message shared on Twitter, the Overwatch legend stated that he was retiring due to a loss of "desire to compete."
"I realized how much I had lost the passion to compete and how much it was wrecking me mentally and emotionally," he wrote. “This was a decision that has loomed over me for a very long time now, and I feel this is something I have to do for myself. "
Super is the most popular Overwatch League player in terms of broadcasting numbers, with 416,000 Twitch followers and 225,000 YouTube subscribers. Shock mentioned in his video that supporters can expect him to stay with the group, most likely as a content developer.
