Longzhu Gaming’s AD Carry Kim “PraY” Jong-in joked about watching his past teammates on the ROX Tigers during an interview with Fomos’ Choi Min-sook after Thursday’s 2-0 win over Kongdoo Monster.
“The ROX members scattered everywhere,” he said. “I always cheer for the teams whoever past ROX players play against. It’s fun to watch my past teammates lose. I think if SKT faces KT, SKT will win.”
League Champions Korea had a brief vacation in accordance of the Lunar New Year, and while PraY elected to return home for some time off, his support Kang “GorillA” Beom-hyun stayed behind to practice.
Longzhu will be facing LCK sensation, the BBQ Olivers, in its next match, and though not completely confident, GorillA said that Longzhu can win like it did against Kongdoo.
“I think (the BBQ Olivers) are a team with good forward momentum,” he said. “I think whichever team that doesn’t make mistakes in the laning phase will win. Since BBQ is a good team so I can’t be sure, but I think we can win if we play the way we did today.”
With PraY being part of the League of Legends World Championship four times, he said that he aims to make it five with a decent record.
“I hope we have more wins than losses,” he said. “Our final goal is to make it to worlds, since there hasn’t been a time which I didn’t make it to worlds during my career as a pro gamer. I hope we also make it to the playoffs this split at a high position in the rankings.”
