Meet the Players: RivaL
eCKo eSports has a number of players attending the Domination Cup, one of them who has been at the top of his game in the Melbourne LAN scene is RivaL.
Could you tell us a little about your self and why you have entered the Domination Cup.
Hi, my name is Henry Yum, I’m a Zerg player, playing for eCKo eSports. I decided to join the Domination Cup, because I find LAN tournaments to be exciting, and because it is held in Melbourne, it is easy for me to attend to as well.
Are you at School/Uni? What are you studying at the moment?
I am currently studying psychology at RMIT.
What is your poison? (Favourite drink)
Favourite drink would have to be cold water as it allows me to stay hydrated and refreshed after a meal or when I get up in the morning.
Do you have a favourite food?
There are a lot of foods that I love from different cultures, so it is hard to pick one specific food as my favourite. If I had to pick, I would pick pasta, as it is fast, easy and delicious =).
Favorite colour would have to be Blue
What would you do if you won Lotto?
I would save up the money, ask advice and get multiple opinions on what I should do with it, and also help out others whenever I am given the opportunity because I’m so rich.
Could you please describe your play style in three words.
Macro, Defend, Overwhelm.
Who do you look up to, take inspiration from, in the StarCraft 2 community?
When I am motivated to learn and improve, I look up to, and get inspired by soO. I try to learn by watching him play because he is so solid.
Who are looking forward to matching up with in the Domination Cup?
I am excited to play against Petrify, as there was a clash between us in the past when he accused me of stream cheating against him multiple times when we hit each other on ladder. So hopefully if I can win the series in a LAN, he may actually believe me.
Who are you looking to avoid in the Domination Cup?
I am looking to avoid Probe, as I think he is a very strong PvZ protoss player, and I also dont want us to team kill each other and knock one of us out to the losers bracket. Other players I would want to avoid are MightyKiwi, Wally, and Alopex, they are great players, and they will only be stronger at the upcoming LAN.
Any special message or call out to anyone in the Cup?
Calling out Pezz, my rival from Melbourne for an intense series. Also a big thanks to Lalor (rezyn8) for hosting this event.
Looks like the King Henry has targeted a few of his former team mates from Silicon Sports. Either way whenever RivaL plays the games are going to be very entertaining. Stay tuned for more interviews as we head towards the Domination Cup on November 29!
