While this is our last Lightning Round for Worlds and you’re probably already hip to how this works, here’s our final explainer. The Rift Herald: Have you been challenged with that since you came to Korea? Bwipo: Either Hylissang cause he’s really funny or Caps cause he’s really funny or Broxah cause that guy’s awesome. Rekkles would be cool cause I’d get to know him better and Soaz would be cool cause we could talk top lane. If you could be Aatrox and go around ending worlds that’s pretty cool.
The Rift Herald: I have food I don’t eat! Candice: I’m trying to be experience the pro gamer’s life. [laughs] I’m trying to, though. Candice: I don’t know. Candice: I don’t know!
Jeon “Ray” Ji-won, who formerly played in North America, joined us for a Lightning Round. Ray: It’s a really hard question but if I had to choose, I’ll do Camille. Ray: I don’t shake it, because if you shake it, there’s foam, so it’s hard to drink it. Ray, in English: But Camille is really boosted champion. Ray: I think China is a good country to play, especially because there is a lot of League of Legends.
During his quest, we pulled him into an interview room for a quick Rift Herald Lightning Round. WildTurtle was pretty excited to join us for a Lightning Round and blasted through a ton of questions at top speed. The Rift Herald: So as long as you have something to protect yourself? The Rift Herald: That’s definitely why your stomach hurts, not because you shake it! WildTurtle: I’ve never picked up a girl with a pick-up line in my life.
We were blessed with the opportunity to see what’s going on in top laner Song “Smeb” Kyung-ho’s head in a quick Lightning Round. Our Lightning Round questions all come from various sources: fans, other media, players and more. The Rift Herald: Really?? The Rift Herald: Are you not having fun now? The Rift Herald: And what’s your answer to that?
We recently got a chance to do a Skype interview with the Japanese band [ALEXANDROS] as they prepare to go on their first US tour very soon. When we made the Bleach song and Project Judge, we were in the States so we sent them our demo. Obviously, Project Judge and Bleach are very different, are there specific sounds you guys try to find for those two? When we’re in the studio, I’d always play it.”That’s the sign of a good theme song! We’ll leave the Project Judge and Bleach themes below along w
LCK’s Afreeca Freecs turned their rough Worlds 2018 start into a major success story, taking the first seed from Group A on the sixth day of Worlds. We grabbed jungler Lee “Mowgli” Jae-ha for a celebratory Lightning Round. Our Lightning Rounds are filled with questions from players, fans, press, Vox Media employees and myself. Mowgli: I would travel back six years with my current skills and abilities, become the top player and become famous. Mowgli: Probably a moment where your team’s not perfor
We pulled in top laner Yan “Letme” Jun-Ze for our Lightning Round. Our Lightning Round questions come from so many people at this point, that it’s kind of a pain to list them out. Letme: As for now, I don’t think there is one. The Rift Herald: Yep. [laughs]The Rift Herald: What’s your answer to that?
Team Vitality put up a really good fight in their group but didn’t quite make it out. Following Group B’s close at the 2018 World Championship, we interviewed Team Vitality’s jungler, Mateusz “Kikis” Szkudlarek for our Lightning Round. Kikis: [laughs] I mean ... I’m not really into it, but if I had to say then Deft, I guess? I don’t really have AC, I just have a boiler or whatever. Kikis: I actually don’t use many skins.
The Rift Herald: I know some! [laughs]The Rift Herald: It’s sensitive? The Rift Herald: That’s what I would have guessed. The Rift Herald: RNG has the, uhm, weird questions! The Rift Herald: What?
