On Nov. 5, DRX defeated T1 in the grand finals of the 2022 LoL World Championship to claim their first World Championship title. As the winners of Worlds 2022, DRX players will be able to select championship skins for a champion. In the press conference following the finals, the DRX players shared their preferences.
Hwang “Kingen” Seong-hoon picked Aatrox, as it was the pick that awarded him the finals MVP, and a pick that was strong throughout the World Championship. Next in line was Hong “Pyosik” Chang-hyeon. Pyosik was originally known as a Kindred one-trick player back from his streamer days, and since he had a great performance playing Kindred during Worlds 2022, his pick was Kindred.
Kim “Zeka” Geon-woo picked Akali for his skin. Zeka had a great performance starting from the play-in stage playing Akali and Sylas, but his pick was Akali in the end. As for Kim “Deft” Hyuk-kyu, he picked Caitlyn, which was the most frequently banned champion in Worlds 2022. His last pick in game 5 was Caitlyn as well.
Finally, for Cho “BeryL” Geon-hee, he expressed concern as there were too many skins for this champion, but he went with Ashe. As an answer to a later question, BeryL said, "Although my teammates may not know, many of my fans who know what I'm doing would know why."
