I'm not ure Runner will play , it has been announced that he does not play anymore . ( he keeps his manager duties)
So we'll probably see new runaway?
Also is this on twitch too?
Runner said on his stream that the team is struggling to find quality Lucio player. So, it is likely that Runner will be playing this match against X6-Gaming unless the team finds a proper candidate before the match. Lunatic-Hai coach also mentioned that it was very difficult to find a Lucio player for their sister team. So it is somewhat surprising that the former RunAway member CoMa, who is regarded as one of the best Lucio players in Korea, finally got his place in Flash Lux (I am a big fan of FL but they have not been either competitive or successful in the previous 3 APEX seasons), as a lot of teams and their fans wanted him to be in their roster.
Runner confirmed on his stream that JJANU (짜누 in Korean) will play Lucio for RunAway against X6-Gaming today. Jjanu is a Korean streamer who is famous for his Roadhog playing in ranked matches on Korean server and passion to be a RunAway member. He has been expressing his strong desire to be part of RunAway and was actually competing with Mirage till the end during the team's last trial for new members. The funny thing is that he is not a support player and it is reportedly said that he was ready to play what he is not familiar with if he could be a member of RunAway.
Runaway is a gateway for streamers to go pro like Mirage and now JJanu,but has the wnv thing been solved yet?
Kalios left the team due to his contract issue with wNv although Runner mentioned Kalios might come back to the team once the issue is cleared out. Mirage was a member of a professional Overwatch team called OPPA.DANAWA before he got in the RunAway roster. He used twitch streaming as a means to promote himself to find a new team. However, now he seems to be just a streamer.
So bumper is playing Lucio. Two new tanks. Haksal was also playing some zen while Kox flexed onto the soldier.
After seeing this,I can see another deep apex run from Runaway they look quite dominant in this
This makes me very happy. After all they've been through it's really good too se them be able to compete. I just hope they get enough exposure to get picked up and take some pressure off Runner and now Mirage.
