Biography

Season 2

Kim "PraY" Jong-in has played League since the Korean server began service. He enjoyed RTS games when he was younger, and he came to prominence for his
Ezreal
mechanics. He was picked up by NaJin Sword in May of 2012 and remained with them until May of 2014. He played under the name "Troll Kim" in his first premier series, Azubu The Champions Summer 2012, where his team placed third after a 2-0 victory over Azubu Blaze in the 3rd place decider match. Afterwards, NJBS earned enough circuit points to qualify for the Season 2 Korea Regional Finals where they defeated all of the other teams to qualify for the Season 2 World Championship. There, they fought through to the quarterfinals but were knocked out by the Taipei Assassins in a 0-2 loss. One month later, the team played in the 2012 MLG Fall Championship where they made it to the finals against Azubu Blaze but were defeated despite their winner's bracket advantage.

Season 3

NaJin Sword began Season 3 in earnest, sweeping Azubu Frost 3-0 in the finals of OLYMPUS Champions Winter 2012-2013. After that, they participated in the Chiense GIGABYTE StarsWar League Season 2 where they lost to Invictus Gaming in the loser's finals and placed third. They then played in the OLYMPUS Champions Spring 2013 where they could not advance past the quarterfinals due to a 1-3 loss to Azubu Frost. After the Spring playoffs, NaJin Sword was renamed to NaJin Black Sword. NJBS played in the HOT6iX Champions Summer 2013 series but were unable to get past the group stage. Despite this, they were able to earn enough circuit points to qualify for the Season 3 World Championship and fought their way to the semifinals. NaJin Black Sword traded blow for blow with SK Telecom T1 in the semifinals but were unable to draw out the last win, closing the series at 2-3.

Season 4

The 2014 season was a particularly weak season for NaJin Black Sword. In both the PANDORA.TV Champions Winter 2013-2014 and HOT6iX Champions Spring 2014 series, they were unable to advance past the group stage. After the Spring 2014 series had concluded, PraY left the team.

Season 5

On November 14th, 2014, PraY joined the HUYA Tigers along with Smeb, Lee, Kuro, and GorillA. This team played in the 2015 LoL Champions Korea, where they renamed the team to GE Tigers. This team did well at the start of the 2015 season and earned an invitation to the IEM Season IX - World Championship. It was there that the team fought their way to the semifinals, losing only in a 1-2 reverse sweep to Team WE who, in turn, were defeated by Team SoloMid. After returning home, the team proceeded to play in the Champions playoffs due to their first place standing in the regular season. The Tigers made it to the finals where they lost to SK Telecom T1 in a 0-3 sweep and placed second in the entire tournament. The Tigers then played in the 2015 LCK Summer series under a slightly changed name, the KOO Tigers. It was there that they placed fourth in the regular season and qualified for the playoffs but lost in the semifinals to KT Rolster in a 2-3, back-and-forth match. After the summer playoffs ended, KOO was picked as the second seed to the 2015 World Championship due to circuit points. There, KOO performed well in their group, losing twice only to the yoe Flash Wolves. In the bracket stage, they knocked out KT Rolster 3-1 and swept Fnatic 3-0 in the semifinals. Unfortunately, they were unable to wrest the world championship cup from SK Telecom T1, losing 1-3 in the grand finals.

Season 6

Prior to the 2016 season, KOO Tigers changed their name to ROX Tigers. The ROX Tigers finished the LCK Spring 2016 Split in first place with a 16-2 record. In the finals of the LCK Spring Playoffs, ROX Tigers were defeated by SK Telecom T1 in a 3-1 fashion. In the regular season of the summer split, they were once again able to finish 1st with a 15-3 record. This time around, their opponent in the final wasn't SK Telecom, it was KT Rolster. In a very close series that became a classic, ROX was able to win it (3-2) and capture their first LCK title since they were formed.

Winning the Summer Split also paved PraY and ROX's way to the 2016 World Championship, as Korea's #1 seed. At Worlds, PraY and team were drawn in Group A alongside Albus NoX Luna, Counter Logic Gaming and G2 Esports. They managed to come out as the #1 seed from their group by winning the tiebreaker match against ANX. In playoffs, the team was seeded against LPL's #1 seed, EDward Gaming. However, they easily get past the Chinese team in a 3-1 victory and moved on to the Semifinals. In the 2nd stage of the bracket, however, the team faced SK Telecom T1 and lost. Although the games were close, PraY and team were still unable to overpower the 2-time World Champions and lost the 5th and final match, thus ending their run at 3rd and 4th place.

PraY's last match for the season is at the 2016 LoL KeSPA Cup where they, again, faced SKT in the Semifinals. It was a different story this time, however, as they managed to beat the now 3-time World Champions (2-0) and moved on to the Finals. They then faced Kongdoo Monster whom they beat (3-1) to take home the cup.

However, this was the last tournament PraY played with the team as well. In the off season, ROX Tigers announced that its entire roster, including the Coaches, are already free agents and are open to offers. The next day, PraY, alongside teammates GorillA, Smeb and Kuro parted ways with the team. On December 4th, Longzhu Gaming announced that PraY joined their roster for 2017 Spring. He will be manning the bot lane alongside his Support from ROX Tigers, GorillA.
