On the 3rd, DAMWON Gaming successfully had its debut at Worlds. In their first match, they defeated TCL’s Royal Youth. Mid laner Heo “Showmaker” Su was selected as the player of the match and was interviewed after the game. In the interview, he seemed desperate for Korean food.
Below is an interview with Showmaker.
Congratulations on today’s win. It was your Worlds debut. How was it?
As it was the first time for me, during the draft, my heart was beating and I was really nervous. I was quite intimidated but as we played, the game went well, so I was relieved of my nervousness.
There are two Koreans in Royal Youth. How did you prepare?
Since I’ve never played against him, I didn’t know anything, so I was on my toes. While I was playing, it seemed alright, so I started to play aggressive.
They played jungle Qiyana and mid Sylas. What did you think of it?
Qiyana can be flexed mid-jungle, Sylas mid-top-jungle, and Renekton mid-top. We were talking about which lanes they would be assigned to… I thought LeBlanc was quite useful against all three of them so I picked LeBlanc.
Was that why you took Kleptomancy?
Yes. For LeBlanc to play lane easily against Sylas, Kleptomancy is effective, so I did that.
Your next match is against Brazil’s Flamengo eSports.
We had several mistakes in the first game, so our performance wasn’t as good. We’ll have good enough feedback and deliver better performances.
And any comments to the fans?
Thank you to all fans for cheering for us. The food here doesn’t suit me well; if anybody knows a Korean food restaurant that delivers around here, please let us know.
