▲ Source: LCK Korea DAMWON Gaming defeated G2 Esports in the semi-finals of the LoL 2020 World Championship. It was a 3-1 victory for DAMWON Gaming in which the last match ended in just 19 minutes. By setting a new record for the shortest match at the Worlds, DAMWON Gaming managed to get revenge for last year’s quarter-finals. After the match, bot laner Jang “Ghost” Yong-joon joined Park Jee-sun for an interview. DAMWON Gaming has taken revenge on G2. This is the first final for an LCK team. They are also the first Worlds for you. How do you feel? It’s really significant that we won against G2 Esports. These are my first Worlds, and we have reached the final; I want to become a royal roader for the Worlds. Many DAMWON Gaming players have expressed their desire for revenge on G2. Was the ceremony part of it? When we saw them do this ceremony after beating an LCK team, General G, we said we would get revenge too. What did you mainly prepare for the semi-finals? I think DAMWON Gaming of ’20 is a completely different team than ’19; we have improved a lot. G2 likes to use the map extensively and shake his opponents all around. We said if we are careful, we will win. Maybe because of this style of G2 it was close to Game 3, but Game 4 was blazingly fast. How did you see the game? From the draft we could see that G2 was shaken up, so after the draft we thought we almost won. In the game, too, things went comfortably according to our plan. I didn’t expect the game to be this fast; I am a little frustrated with this. [Laughs]
Now people say the red side looks more beneficial. How were the returns after losing Game 2? And what was there with the Fiora choice? During the scrims Nuguri played Fiora well and we thought she was fine, so we picked her. But after Leona visited the summit, things got confused. There was a bit of choice pressure, but there are regrets. We could have played better. The LCK has finally reached the final and will face the winner of Suning vs Top Esports. Who do you think will win? It’s hard to predict because they’re both good teams. Whoever comes up, we will win. .
