Greetings, gamers! This is Inven Global.


The LCK Summer has come to an end and the fervor for the League of Legends World Championship is mounting up. Inven Global has prepared an event for League fans: an AMA with a top League of Legends pro gamer! Inven Global is holding an AMA with a top LoL pro gamer so that League fans can have a chance to directly communicate with them.


The 3rd pro gamer we have invited for our AMA, and the second one to join in the AMA for LoL, is Shy from ROX Tigers.

 

 

Sang-Myeon “Shy” Park is one of the pros that has a long career in League of Legends. He made his debut in 2012 and won the championship during the first year of his career. His career is part of the history of the LCK. Although he had to take a break from his career in 2016 due to a wrist injury, which can be critical for a professional gamer, he made a comeback in 2017 and is now leading the ROX Tigers.


We will be holding a live AMA for 2 hours via our comment section at the bottom of this article, starting from August 28th, 19:00 PDT (August 29th, 11:00 KST). Shy will be reading all your questions from the comment section, and he will personally answer them, so feel free to ask all you want! Anything is okay- from Shy’s gameplay to personal questions regarding his hobbies!


Of course, Shy 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.

    Shy, when I first heard of you many years ago it was about your famous Mundo gameplay. You were very renown on that champion. Is there a champion you like playing the most? Is there one that you feel you are or were the best at?

    • 0

      ROX_Shy

      @Elliott Thank you for remembering my Mundo play, but he is not meta nowadays so I don't usually play him anymore :(
      The champion that I play the most nowadays is Jax. Thanks to the buff, he almost dominates the lane now.
      The best champion that I am and was best at is Jax cuz I have been playing him a lot recently lol

    What is the difference in style of play between you and Linderang? What gives you motivation to continue playing at a high level after all these years? Also, which non-Korean top laner was the hardest to face back in the early days of season 2 or season 3? Thanks, you're a legend <3

      ROX_Shy

      @acagedanimal

      The difference would be the champion pool; it's like a spear and a shield - me being the shield and Lindarang being the spear. While I usually focus on bruisers, Lindarang tends to go for DPS champions. But it does not mean that I don't play DPS champions nor Lindarang plays bruisers. It always depends on the circumstances.


      The motivation would be my age :P as I get older, I realize that I don't have much time as I used to have in the past and that motivates me to play better than before.

      I suppose that PDD was one of the hardest to face back in the early days. We used to scrim a lot with Chinese teams in the past, and despite his big figure, he was one of the fastest pro players I've known and was really good as well.

    I heard that when you were member of Cj, you were enforcer who is in charge of discipline
    (So.. many other members were afraid of Elevator....right?? lololol.. )
    When you bring them elevator, what did you talk about with them??

    • 0

      ROX_Shy

      @Lemong We talked a lot of things in the elevator, so I can't really remember exactly what I have said at that time lol but I suppose that I have cheered them up when we were doing really good, and when the atmosphere became a bit gloomy, I told them to brace ourselves and focus to achieve better results. It was nothing personal :P

    What's the most unforgettable moment of your career?

    • 0

      ROX_Shy

      @Hendrick_Chan I was once a mercenary of the team Blaze at MLG. When Najin Sword already went to the finals, and we faced CLG in the semifinals. After beating CLG, we didn't have a time to have breaks and went to the match with Najin Sword straight up. The match began at around 12PM, and it finished at almost 8 or 9PM, making us tired to death lol I suppose that was one of the memorable moments as we didn't have any match that lasted for almost a whole day.

    How do you like Rox's chances in 2018?
    • 0

      ROX_Shy

      @Hendrick_Chan

      If we have the same members as we have til the next year, we'll be able to overcome any difficulties, and solidify our relationship and become a much stronger team. Just like SSG - even though they didn't have named players previously, they managed to become one of the top-tiered pro teams with their strong bonds and playstyle. I believe that we can walk on the same track and become one of the best teams in 2018 as well.

    When are you most impressed with your fan?

      ROX_Shy

      @Bowwow

      The moment when fans shouted by saying "Happy birthday" actually impressed me a lot as I was surprised by the fact that they even remembered each member's birthday. Even though it was a small thing, it was one of the moments that I was impressed the most.
      Also, the small gifts I receive from particular fans, such as language guides whenever we take a trip to overseas, were also really sweet :)

    What advise would you give to the aspiring pro players in other regions?

    • 0

      ROX_Shy

      @Hendrick_Chan

      Not only your skills as one of the top-tier players, your attitude towards the game is also important.When I remember the first time I became the pro player, I did not tend to troll during the game and say bad things about the result; for example, when I give a kill to the opponent, instead of swearing or putting responsibilityon the others, I tend to think about more productive feedback to myself. Because of that, people who used to play with me or watch my plays back then said good things about me (which I appreciate), and I think that is one of the factors how I passed the test to become the pro player.

      Long story short, be careful of what you say or how you behave.

    What do u think about yasuo in pro competitive? With recent nerf, do you think yasuo has a chance to appear in upcoming WC?

    • 0

      ROX_Shy

      @woodv1402

      In terms of the top lane, I think Yasuo has a reasonable chance of showing up as it is not that bad nowadays and he actually showed up in the league too. But, it was when low or mid-tier pro teams picked Yasuo to counter me in the top lane, but as the tier becomes higher, I doubt that he will show up in the WC.

      He surely is a strong champion without doubt, but when it comes to the pro leagues, the manliness of the champion that dominates the lane is not gonna work. They are not solo-ranked after all. The only chance he will be able to show up in the pro leagues is when he gets overall berfs directly.

    How did you spend your summer vacation? What's your favorite champion these days?

    When the final game, I was really glad to see you on TV :)

    • 0

      ROX_Shy

      @Chanhyun

      I played different games during the vacation, PUBG in particular. I didn't have much to do other than playing games, so I concentrated on playing PUBG so much that I even managed to become #48 in the entire rank lol

      The current meta favors Jax to dominate the game so much nowadays, so I prefer to play Jax and he became one of my favorite champions once again :)

      And I did not know I was actually going to be on TV, so I smiled back when they captured me on camera lol Thanks for that

    Shy, I wonder why you transferred to ROX Tigers. Is it because you are acquainted with the director? Or is there another reason?

    • 0

      ROX_Shy

      @DragonDance

      As a pro gamer, I just wanted to transfer myself to another team just like other players. Despite the CJ's result being bad or good, I planned to move out anyway, and I have been knowing the director long time and he offered me to work together, so that's how I joined ROX Tigers.

    Sad question,Are you going to be a coach(or manager) after retirement?

    • 0

      ROX_Shy

      @dogsoo

      If I stay in LoL long enough, I might become one eventually. It's not that I have never thought about it before, and from the realistic perspective, I had to think about what I will be doing after the retirement, and have considered doing the coach many times. Nothing is decided yet though

    Hey Shy. You, along with Pray, have played league of legends at the pro level for a long, long time. The meta has changed constantly during that time. Do you have any tips for future professional gamers on how to adapt to meta changes quickly? Also, which season do you think was your best season.
    • 0

      ROX_Shy

      @Andy_Lee

      It's the experience that helps you adapt to meta changes quickly. Pro players who have been in the league for a long time tend to adapt to meta changes quicker than others. One of the ways you can do so is to play as many champions as possible and prepare for any upcoming changes in the future


      From my personal perspective, Season 3 was the best season so far as it was the peak time that the game had as many players as it could hold, and the game itself was pretty fun back then.
      From the pro player's perspective, Season 5 was the best. Most people thought that CJ wouldn't make it, but it turned out to be rather good, and I suppose that was sort of rehabilitation for myself and my team as well lol

    Who is the best non-korean top laner in your opinion?

    • 0

      ROX_Shy

      @Kameko

      957 from Team WE was quite notable when I watched the rift rivals. He showed quite good performances and tended to join the teamfights quite quickly, and I think he possesses quite a potential to be considered a good top laner

      @Amaymono

      Ambition is the one lol he is the talkative one, but it does not mean that he was talking about meaningless stuffs. Instead, he gave a number of good advises to me, and I believe that the reason why SSG went to the top-tier is Ambition

    I've known you since season 2013 but on this day last year, it was the first time I met you when you were coming to Vietnam. You're so amazing and friendly, Shy ^^ I just wonder are yousatisfied with your performence this year? and when are you going to the army? Hopefully you're doing well as always! I love you Shy <3 Thank you!

      ROX_Shy

      @Luna

      Thanks friend! I was thrilled to see you guys cheering for us when we visited Vietnam, it was awesome!


      To answer your question, I was personally satisfied myself during the Spring Split, but not the Summer Split lol I wasn't able to dominate the top lane as much as I wanted to. Except that, it was all fine and I am preparing to do much better


      About the army, probably two year after :P


      Again, it was the good time back in Vietnam and it became such a good memory. I hope you do well too, and thank you

    Shy, what was your favorite meta to play in? What do you think about the current meta and your opinions on worlds?

    • 0

      ROX_Shy

      @Loveless

      The meta when Jax, Irellia, and Vladimir dominated the top lane was my personal favorite one. It was almost like a man-to-man fight without any interruption, so that's why I loved it.


      But nowadays, what's critical in the current meta is the communication between teammates. In the past, you could carry the game on your own no matter how the game went, but the skills of players are almost on the similar level recently, and what makes the difference is how well you communicate with your teammates to achieve the better results.

    Hi Shy! You are by far the oldest and most experienced of all of your teammates. What was the most important lesson you learned during your long and illustrious career? Is there anything you wish you had known when you first started out as a pro? Thanks!

    • 0

      ROX_Shy

      @Annihilazn

      The most important lesson I learned from my career was how you behave even if the game is going bad. Even if the game is not going as good as you expected, the way you cheer up other players and fight through the circumstances was the main factor to win the game and is the lesson that I value the most.


      In the early phase of my career, I tended to focus on myself; how to improve my skills further and become a better player and such. But, I realized that having good relationships with other people can also affect many things and this is the one that I wish I would've known before starting out as a pro player

    How do you feel about the current top lane tank meta, and do you feel more confident in a tank meta or a top carry meta?

    • 0

      ROX_Shy

      @Andy_Lee

      It seems that various kinds of champions do show up in the top lane in this season, and if you prepare with as many champions as possible, it would work out quite well and pays you off


      I feel more confident in a tank meta to be honest as I have played tank champions more often than DPS champions

      @Eeseno

      I loved the game since the past and I had a thought of becoming a pro player, but it was not a definite decision back then. But, when LoL came out, it suited me quite well and that's how I became a pro LoL player


      The answer of the second question: PUBG lol

      @Wenz I was friendly with all members back in 2016, but Ambition and Flame are the closest members from CJ

      To some extent lol but when it comes to a friendship, it is more like a relationship in the company like a senior and junior

      And yeah, we often see each other :D

    저는 세체탑 뽑으면 샤이형부터 뽑아욯ㅎㅎㅎ


    몇달전엔 샤이형 찬양글로 화재글도 가고 그랬었는데 보셨을까요

    요새 사람들이 형님이 이제는 피지컬이 강점이 아니고 다른게 강점이라는데 저는 형님이 정글없이 피지컬로 밀리는거 단 한번도 못봤거든요

    그 트런들로 기인한테 솔킬준거 빼고..


    전 락스가 탑에 좀만 더 힘주면서 하면 아직도 형님이 다 패버릴 수 있다고 생각합니다

    스프링이였나 후니 블랭크 2대1로 털어버리던 모습 아직도 눈에 선해요

      @HopeforNature The year of 2016 was the toughest time as a pro gamer. I even wondered whether I could continue to be a pro gamer, but people around me gave good words that I could overcome these difficulties, and that's how I was able to get over this slump

      And thank you for your words :D

      I have been to Tokyo for lecturing Japanese pro gamers, and I was surprised how big Tokyo was :) If I have a chance, I would like to visit Osaka sometime in the future


      Seroth is the most impressive player from my opinion. As far as I know, he is known as Japanese Faker, and he seems to have good skills in my opinion as well
