Greetings, gamers! This is Inven Global.


In the midst of the fervor mounting up for the Overwatch World Cup, Inven Global has prepared an event for Overwatch fans: an AMA with a top Overwatch pro gamer!


The pro gamer we invited for our first AMA is… drumrolls, please… ArHaN from Afreeca Freecs!


ArHaN is one of the top DPS who has displayed outstanding performance in the Overwatch APX, and he lead his team to perfect victories in the 2016 Overwatch World Cup.


We will be holding a live AMA for 3 hours via our comment section at the bottom of this article, starting from August 7th, 18:00 PDT (August 8th, 10:00 KST).


Of course, ArHaN will be answering your questions not only during the live AMA time, but starting from now on, so feel free to leave questions in the comments below.


The AMA with ArHaN will be set up so that all Overwatch fans from all over the world can communicate with each other; it will also be held in English so that more fans can communicate. We hope that active discussion will be held between Overwatch fans, since you will be able to use our translation feature in the comment section.


However, you will need to sign up for an account at Inven Global in order to participate in the AMA. You can sign up with your Reddit account or any other social media like Twitter, Facebook, and Google+.


Also, we will be giving a 20$ Blizzard Balance gift card to 10 randomly selected people who participate in the AMA event. Not only that, we will also select 3 additional participants during the live AMA and give them a 50$ Blizzard Balance gift card.


We will be holding the AMA with a translator from Inven Global. So… We look forward to your participation! Thank you!

    Sorry, this is it for our live AMA :(

    ArHaN had to go to a photo shooting for his APEX profile.

    However, we'll still leave the comment section open so feel free to ask ArHaN questions! We'll put the questions together and give it to him; once we get his answers, we'll post them! The event will be open until August 9th 0:00 PDT.

    겐지에 대해 팁을 주신다면?
    그리고 겐지 콤보나 용검은 어떻게 활용하는지요?
    • 0

      ArHaN

      @Supre Practice playing Genji as much as possible. And as for the skill combo, I advise you to hit your target with Shurikens first, then use Swift Strike to finish off. Always keep track of how much they have health left.

    You are labelled one of the best genji's in the world, but how do you prevent yourself from tilting or weakening your mindset within the competitive scene?With that, how do you remain so consistent?
    • 0

      ArHaN

      @JOEL When it comes to these kind of situations, I try my best to payback- this helps me to stay calm and keep my mindset intact during games. After the games, I just go to sleep and try to forget about bad things. This is how I keep myself from tilting or weakening my mindset.

      I refrain from eating anything fattening before the tournament, eat very lightly during the tournament, and then only after the tournament, do I eat meat! And I don't work out at all.

    hi thank you Inven and ArHan for this AMA

    how many hours a day you and your team usually train together?

    if your family was taken away by pirates and you can choose 3 players to rescue them who would you choose?

      ArHaN

      @Niaaco

      I train about 4~6 hours a day with my teammates. And as for your last question, the first person I'd choose is myself, then Recry, and lastly, IDK, to shield me from all kinds of danger.

    How was your casting experience for the World Cup? Are there any things that you found surprising about the job that you didn't know/realise beforehand?

    • 0

      ArHaN

      @RaisinMuffins

      My casting experience for the World Cup was bit difficult for me- I realized that I wasn't really good at it back then. At first, I really wanted to try and though I could pull it off, but I don't think I will be casting ever again.

    1. Who do you think is the best Genji? :)

    2. How did you feel when you lose against Lunatic-Hai in APEX, and what do you think the problem was?

    • 0

      ArHaN

      @Divinitas

      1. Everyone has their own play style, but for me, I am the best Genji!

      2. I felt angry when we lost to Lunatic-Hai in the APEX. And I think the reason we lost is because we didn't have enough practice.

    • 0

      ArHaN

      @Leg4cy There are two situations you'd need to use Swift Strike- one is when you met Winston in the eyes. The 2nd is when you think you won't be able to kill enemies. You should practice until you can use Swift Strike to wherever you'd like to go.

    Hello Arhan, what is the most important factor that determines whether a team can consistently beat their opponents over time?

    • 0

      ArHaN

      @Chris_Winata

      The most important thing of all is the desire to win. And you should be able to understand and know what your opponent team's strategies are, their strength, weaknesses, and what they'll be playing, and be able to counter that.

      @lina_gunarso

      You'll need to be born with the talent, but you'll also make a huge effort to be able to compete at the highest level.

      I think APEX will continue to be a premier league in Korea, and every Korean pro gaming teams will do their best to be that one OWL team.

    1. 지금까지 아르한 선수는 공식 대회에서 겐지와 트레이서를 주로 보여주셨는데 혹시 이 두 영웅 말고도 대회에서 "주력"으로 사용하기 위해 연습중인 영웅들이 있나요?
    2. 최근에 오버워치 월드컵 예선에 해설로 참여하셨는데 어려운 점이 있었다면?

    • 0

      ArHaN

      @ic808

      1. D.Va, Hanzo, and Doomfist.
      2. I found it hard to think and speak at the same time when I casted. And I had to miss my training to cast so it was something that stayed on my mind.

      @Honeyddddd

      I will just make one dream team because two teams are too much for me.

      First, me, ryujehong, tobi, zunba, and anyone who are good tanks and DPS from APEX will be fine.

    If you use a sword to practice Genji these days, you will be able to get the opponent to start the fight. You can not catch him. And I'd appreciate it if you could explain how to put the Genjiro deal.

    • 0

      ArHaN

      @bm8105

      You need to practice using Swift Strike in custom games. Keep practicing until you get used to it. And also practice aiming. That's the only way to get better.

    ArHaN players seem to be very interested in game equipment. For example, use a separate ‘ Palm Rest ’ ...What is the first thing you should consider when choosing equipment such as your keyboard or mouse headset?

      ArHaN

      @dnam I am very interested in gaming gears. I always get ten keyless keyboards, though I don't really mind which headset I get. As for the mouse, I always get light ones.  And as for the mouse pads, I use soft pads.

    Hi, ArHaN:) I'm really big fan of you. My native language isn't English. So My English is not good. But I'm glad to participate in this A.M.A. I have many questions to ask you.
    1. Before you face on match, What do you think?
    2.What is your top priority goal?
    3. What is your long-term plan?
    4. What is the biggest advantage of Afreeca Freecs Blue?
    5. What is the most difficult thing about your progamer life?
    6. How do you deal with malicious comments?
    7. I know you are on a diet. What is the most difficult?
    Other players ate hamburgers at night. Who makes it harder when you go on a diet?
    8. What kind of exercise do you do?
    9. What makes you happy?
    10. Are you happy now?

      ArHaN

      @Yeonnnnni

      1. I only think about victories.

      2. To be the best Genji.

      3. Buy a building and live a luxurious life.

      4. We are good at aggressive game plays.

      5. Overwatch is difficult because it's a game based on teams.

      @Yeonnnnni

      6. Reading toxic comments helps me keep motivated.

      7. Sorry, I gave up.

      8. I don't work out.

      9. Action figures, money, and honor.

      10. No. Things have been getting a little bit hard on me. T_T

      I didn't have any dreams when I was a child, and I thought I wanted to be a pro gamer when I saw Faker. I want to see my parents whenever we win games in APEX or the World Cup.
