※ Date change - 9/1 PM 8:00  → 8/31 PM 8:00 

 

Greetings, gamers! This is Inven Global.


The hype around Overwatch esports is building up as the Overwatch World Cup Qualifiers are finally over and the regional teams for the Overwatch League have been announced. To contribute to the excitement, we have prepared an event for Overwatch fans: an AMA with a top Overwatch pro gamer! Inven Global is holding this AMA so that the Overwatch fans can have a chance to directly communicate with professional gamers.


And so, the fourth pro gamer we invited is ryujehong from Lunatic-Hai, who will be playing for the Team Seoul in the Overwatch League in the future.

 

 

ryujehong was selected to play for Team South Korea in the 2016 Overwatch World Cup as well as in 2017, and has proven to be the best support ever. He has played a big part in Lunatic-Hai’s two consecutive wins in APEX with his wide Hero pool, which includes Ana, Zenyatta, and even Soldier: 76. The fans are looking forward to seeing more of his extraordinary gameplay for Team Seoul in the Overwatch League.


We will be holding a live AMA for 1 hour via our comment section at the bottom of this article, starting from Agust 31th, 20:00 PDT (September 1st, 12:00 KST). Of course, ryujehong will be answering your questions not only during the live AMA time, but starting from now, so feel free to leave questions in the comments below.

 

 

Also, we will be giving 20$ Blizzard Balance gift cards to 10 randomly selected people who participate in the AMA event.


We hope for plenty of participation and support from Overwatch and ryujehong fans! Thank you!



※ The AMA with ryujehong is for people from all around the world, and the answers will be given to him in English. We would appreciate it if you leave comments in English via Google Translator for those who would like to check them out. (류제홍 선수와의 AMA는 전세계의 유저를 대상으로 진행 중이라 영어로 답변을 드릴 예정입니다. 구글 번역기 등을 활용하여 가급적 영어로 질문을 남겨주시면 이를 확인하는 많은 분들에게 큰 도움이 될 것으로 예상됩니다.)

    Why do you play Ana as opposed to the other supports, or even the other heroes? What made her so appealing?


    What is it like being considered one of the best Overwatch players in the world?


    Do you enjoy playing DPS? During the Apex Season 3 Grand Finals you played Soldier: 76 and you seemed to perform quite well.

      @cghAU

      I like the way that Ana shoots because it's similar to other FPS games that I've played. Also, I like snipers.

      I still can't believe I'm one of the best OW players in the world. I think I'm just lucky :)

      I don't play DPS in professional tournament, but I sometimes play DPS in comps.

    What do you see the current meta turning into? Do you expect a lot of use out of Doomfist?

      ryujehong

      @cutlery

      I think the dive comp will still work, even with the addition of Doomfist.

    Say Blizzard gives you free reign to make three changes to any characters you want. You can change their kit, damage, hp, etc - which changes would you make, and to which characters?

      @MelM

      I want to increase Ana's damage, nerf Zenyatta's danage, and make Zenyatta's hitbox smaller.

    Also, were you good with Ana from her release or did it take a while for you to adapt to her play style and become good at her?

      My favorite hero is Genji cuz I like swift&agile characters.

    Are you satisfied with your genzi skills?


    As a professional player, Genji appeared only once in the over-watch World Cup qualifiers.
    I have heard that the last set of the season 3 finals with Kondo Pantera had prepared the genji instead of the soldier.


    Why did you play the soldier?

    • 0

      ryujehong

      @Godkrat

      I'm not satisfied with my Genji play and I'm practicing him a lot.


      I picked Soldier to secure my team's victory.

    Jeff Kaplan said that the meta is not only shifted by balance changes but also by the players themselves without the game changing at all. What is your opinion on the matter?

    • 0

      ryujehong

      @wyom1ng

      The dive comp is still the team comp to go for. I don't think the meta can change without changing the game.

      Because I use my whole arm when I play games and I need some height to place my whole arm.

    RyuJehong plays mainly in Ana and Zenyattato match the team in the tournament.

    I also wonder if this is not tiring because there are many people who want to show Ana and Zenyatta to RyuJeHong in the competition!

    What goes through your mind when you hear, let's say, an ulting Genji, and you need to apply a really precise sleep dart at him? Do you actually predict where the Genji is going to dash to or is there something else in your thoughts (like wait until he has dashed and then use the dart)?

    • 0

      ryujehong

      @Dyon

      Whenever I hear an enemy Genji using his ult, I think like "if I don't put him to sleep he's going to kill us all."


      I predict where the Genji is going to dash

    What do you think makes Lunatic Hai one of the best team in the world, is it the strong teamwork between the members or the great mechanical skill each member have? Do you think you could still achieve the same results if you were playing for another team instead of Lunatic Hai?

    • 0

      ryujehong

      @jelybins

      Lunatic Hai has both. We work as a team and each member has great skills. I'm not sure if I can achieve the same results if I didn't play for Lunatic Hai.

    Hello Ryujehong, thank you for doing the AMA!

    You mentioned in the B-Sides documentary OGN showed after the APEX Season 2 finals that being a pro-gamer comes with a lot of hardships. Could you tell us more about those hardships in your own professional career and how you have overcome them?

    Good luck in the rest of Apex and of course in OWL. Fighting!
