September 25 was the first day of the 2020 League of Legends World Championship Play-ins. Legacy Esports of Australia (OCL) had a successful debut by defeating INTZ. Legacy Esports top laner Kim “Topoon” Ji-hoon had a successful debut, playing Camille. After the match, he joined Park Jee-sun for a brief interview.

 


 

Congratulations on the win. Can you introduce yourself?

 

Hi, I’m the top laner of Legacy Esports, Kim Ji-hoon.



How did you name yourself? Is it top from top lane and 'oon' from hoon?

 

Yes, I play in top lane, and my name is hoon, so I put it together: Topoon.



It was your first Worlds match. Weren’t you nervous?

 

I was really nervous so I missed Camille’s E six times. There was an issue with the key setting as well, so it’s really fortunate that we won.



What was the issue?

 

If you press the ~ key, you can click only champions, but if I pressed that button, the mouse right-click didn’t work. That caused some problems.



You’re called the best top laner in Australia and had a successful Worlds debut. What do you think about those evaluations?

 

Frankly, I think it’s just because the Australian top laner pool is really small.



Many fans are watching. A word to those who watch?

 

We have many off-meta picks. If you keep that in mind when you watch us, you’ll have a lot more fun watching.



Could you give us any hints without leaking your strats?

 

Our mid lane often plays unconventional picks.
