Easily the most scrutinized signing in 100T's short history, Ryoma has been the subject of much conversation among 100T fans. After a rough start to his tenure in LCS, he found his footing and established himself in the league as a competent midlaner, even having pop-off carry games during playoffs. Excited by his potential, Cole and Jordan secured an interview with the rookie to hear his thoughts on himself, the pressure cooker that is professional esports, and the future of 100T.
