Team Liquid’s star support and NA Spring Split MVP Jo "CoreJJ" Yong-in came up big in the TL win over the home team, Phong Vu Buffalo. His next move is to dominate the group stage to secure a spot in the knockout round in Taipei.
He may be the best support in the world right now, but he has some incredibly tough opposition. SKT and iG in particular are looking to cause some trouble. There will be blood. We spoke to CoreJJ after his win over Phong Vu.
CoreJJ: I’m actually just happy to be at an international event regardless of the region I represent. Also, we had so many practices, it got dull. So really I’m just happy to finally get to play back on stage.
Actually it’s really hard to guess how we’ll be against G2. They have a lot of different styles and can be any kind of team. That’s the way they won the LEC championship, so we have to figure them out in our practices. Also, we have to think really fast when we face against G2.

I have nothing to say really, I don’t really pay too much attention to the other players. I just call them G2 Support 1 and 2. Hahaha.
Not getting defeated by Europe.
Not really, they’re all similar.
There is nothing boosting my confidence from it. I feel pretty normal, really.
I am actually used to being doubted even back on Samsung and Gen.G, so I’m kind of enjoying it. I just hope all the rest of the teams keep underestimating me till the end of the tournament.
