Recently EnVyUs made roster changes to their Overwatch roster. The former Number one team in the world has made changes to their playing roster. But their most recent change has been adding KyKy to their Active roster. While KyKy is not contracted to the team yet, he is still in a tryout phase for the NA based team.
However considering their recent success at the OGN Apex Season 2 so far, they might as well sign up KyKy to be a permanent member of the roster. His experience and guidance will help the team develop into a strong contender for the coaching position.
Now the news is public: GODS will be flexing on Cloud9 while you’re stepping away from pro play. Is there any specific reason this is happening? In terms of your personal performance, it never really looked “weak” per se, and many would argue your Zarya and D.Va were world-class.
KyKy: I think this has less to do with GODS, and more to do with a very weird chain of events that took place in the weeks leading up OGN. It is important to note that my plan was always to become a coach (or both coach and manager) after being a player. It didn’t exactly happen the way I planned it, but I am happy with the outcome in the end. EnVy has been very welcoming to me and I am grateful for the opportunity they have given me.
Obviously EnVyUs took home season 1 of APEX; what is your mentality for this season? What would you consider a “success?”
KyKy: EnVy taking home the APEX season 1 trophy is great, but I think that Korean teams are way better even now than they were a few months ago. Coaching a championship team may come with “not much to gain, and everything to lose” mentality to most people, and it does put some pressure on me, but I believe I have a lot to offer and I am confident in my ability. Obviously, as a former player, success only would come with getting first place.
How do you expect your former team to perform with GODS? Do you think their flex-heavy approach will work out?
KyKy: I expect Cloud9 to do well at OGN. I know they practiced hard in the week leading up to the event, and I wish them the best of luck. As for their approach and if GODS is the right addition to the team, we will find out soon enough!
Is this gig permanent, or are you just trialling with EnVy until the end of APEX?
KyKy: Right now I am still signed to Cloud9, partaking in an opportunity that was given to me by EnVy. You could consider it a trial, but even after Korea my fate will be decided by the bosses and what they think is best.
Thanks for speaking with me, I wish you good luck in your new role on Team EnVyUs!
Team EnVyUs took down MVP Infinity in their first match of APEX, and will face BK Stars on February 10 at 7:00 PM KST. KyKy will accompany the team throughout the entirety of APEX, after which his future remains to be decided.
