Ha “Comeback” Seung-chan said the food in Europe hindered his experience in the League of Legends Championship Series.
Comeback, previously known as Hachani, spoke with Fomos’ Kim “Kenzi” Yong-woo about joining the newly-qualified League Champions Korea team Ever8 Winners and his time since leaving Europe. Comeback played for Vitality but was benched less than a month into the season and didn’t play another game.
“I got a lot of stress (in Europe) because the food I ate overseas didn’t suit my tastes,” he said. “Things are different in Korea, though. I’m having a fun time playing while eating delicious food.”
According to Fomos, multiple Chinese teams offered contracts to Comeback, but he said the “conditions” weren’t quite right, which is why he chose to play in Korea while also preparing to transition to a coaching role.
Comeback seemed happy about his new team choice, saying that he wants to be “an asset to the team” as soon as possible. As for his role change to a jungler, he said he still needs time to practice, as he only practiced the role “for about three to four days.”
“I played as a support during my career, but I started to lose interest in the game,” he said. “I’ve played other roles before but this is my first time trying out the jungle role. I came to this decision because I wanted to challenge myself.”
Ever8 Winners has another jungler on the roster in Kim “Malrang” Geun-seong, and Comeback is expected to be a flex pick for the team. Ever8 Winners open their LCK summer split May 31 against the Afreeca Freecs.
