It’s time to cast your vote for which Overwatch League pro was the most valuable player in 2019.

The Overwatch League revealed this year’s MVP award last month. General managers for each of the league’s 20 teams then nominated five players for the title, but now it’s up to fans to choose who will take home the award. Fan votes count towards 25 percent of the final vote and will be combined with votes from coaches, general managers, broadcast talent, and press at the end of the ballot period. 

Below are the five candidates for the 2019 MVP award.

  • Jay “Sinatraa” Won—San Francisco Shock
  • Matthew “super” DeLisi—San Francisco Shock
  • Lee “Twilight” Ju-seok—Vancouver Titans
  • Choi “Jjanu” Hyun-woo—Vancouver Titans
  • Qiulin “Guxue” Xu—Hangzhou Spark

Voting opened today and will close when the league’s fourth and final stage wraps up on Aug. 25. Fans can cast their ballot for their favorite candidates by posting a tweet and either tagging the player’s Twitter handle or including their name with the #OWLMVP hashtag.

For those who may be unfamiliar with the candidates, the Overwatch League broadcast will run “MVP Checkpoints,” or video profiles for each of the five players and their stats, every week of stage four beginning with week one, which kicks off today with the match between the Houston Outlaws and the Paris Eternal at 6pm CT.
