Lunatic-Hai secures a slot in the OGN Overwatch Apex quarterfinals—without star support Ryujehong

Moon "Gido" Gi-Do stepped in as support, while Lee "Whoru" Seung Joon did his thing on Genji.

Meta Athena would not move on to the OGN Overwatch Apex quarterfinals regardless of the game outcome—but for Lunatic-Hai, they had to win.

The score of the match didn’t necessarily matter. Lunatic-Hai just needed a win. If they didn’t, the two-time Overwatch Apex champions would have fallen out of the qualifications, with MVP Space moving forward in their place. For a team like Lunatic-Hai, winning is typically an easy task—but for the Sept. 12 match against Meta Athena, Lunatic-Hai was missing star support player Ryu “Ryujehong” Je-hong.

Unable to attend the match for personal reasons, Ryujehong was replaced by DPS player Moon “Gido” Gi-do on support. A skilled DPS player, Gido hasn’t played much support on a competitive stage. Though Lunatic-Hai dropped one map to Meta Athena, they were able to take the 3-1 win.

It’s a showing that should scare fellow Overwatch Apex participants. The depth of Lunatic-Hai’s hero pool is far-reaching. Despite losing one match to MVP Space, Lunatic-Hai are still the team to beat.

If you’d forgotten, just take a look at Lee “Whoru” Seung Joon’s Genji play. Whoru managed to make multiple massive plays during the MVP Space match, including a four-man Dragon Blade followed up by a fifth kill and a Dragon Blade that ripped a Mercy and Pharah straight out of the sky.

The tournament continues Sept. 15, but Lunatic-Hai won’t play again until Sept. 19. They will take on GC Busan in their first quarterfinal match.
