Gu "imp" Sung-bin, AD Carry of MVP Ozone, is the star of the 64th episode of my 'Grilled' interview series.
Why was he afraid to face Cpt Jack in the OGN Spring final? How has Mata improved as a Support? How much of MVP's OGN final win was the result of strategising? Did MVP used to run a strategy similar to CLG's 'protect Doublelift'? Does WeiXiao live up to the hype? How has imp's approach to teamplay changed over time?
