Kim "Reignover" Yeu-jin (Hangul: 김의진) is a League of Legends esports player who is a coach for Cloud9.
Kim "Reignover" Yeu-jin first entered competitive League of Legends play as part of the first roster of Incredible Miracle 2 in March 2013, along with teammates PLL, SoFantasy, kurO, and BBuing. He didn't play any major tournaments with the team before being moved over to the Incredible Miracle 1 roster. IM1 played in HOT6iX Champions Summer 2013 but they placed last in their group and missed the playoffs.
Sometime before PANDORA.TV Champions Winter 2013-2014, Reign over rejoined IM2 as their jungler. Unfortunately, the team still failed to make it past the group stage. IM2 didn't put up any better results at HOT6iX Champions Spring 2014, falling out of the tournaments before the playoffs again. Reign over left the team shortly afterwards.
Reignover trialed for SK Telecom T1's jungle position prior to the start of the OGN Spring 2015 Preseason along with bengi and Rush, but the spot was given to bengi and ReignOver chose not to be a substitute player for them.
In January 2015, Reignover joined Fnatic. Reignover and the team's new roster had a successful Spring Split, finishing 2nd in the regular season with a 13-5 record, partly thanks to Reignover's impressive performances on Rengar and Rek'Sai among other champions. This secured them a bye to the semifinals of the Spring Playoffs. Fnatic beat H2k-Gaming in their semifinal matchup, and went on to secure 1st place after taking a 3-2 win over Unicorns Of Love in the playoff final. This meant that Reignover and the team would pick up 90 Championship Points towards qualification for the 2015 Season World Championship.
This also meant that Fnatic would represent Europe at the 2015 Mid-Season Invitational. Reignover and the team had a relatively successful tournament, which they opened with a decisive win over Team SoloMid. The team also had a notably close group stage game with SK Telecom T1, but went on to lose the game. Fnatic finished the group stage in 4th place, meaning they would advance to the bracket stage. They faced SK Telecom T1 in the semifinals, this time playing out a close series, but ultimately losing 3-2.
Now with Rekkles on the roster instead of Steeelback, Reignover and the team went into the Summer Season with confidence running high after their performance on the international stage. Fnatic managed to finish the regular season with a perfect, unbeaten 18-0 record - and became the first team to achieve this in League Championship Series history. This meant a 1st place regular season finish for the team and a bye to the semifinals of the Summer Playoffs. Fnatic went on to win the playoffs, beating Origen 3-2 in a tight final. This qualified the team for the 2015 World Championship, where they would compete as Europe's #1 seed.
At the 2015 World Championship, Fnatic were seeded into Group B along with ahq e-Sports Club, Invictus Gaming, and Cloud9. They picked up 4 wins in the group, going unbeaten in the 2nd week of group stage games, meaning they would advance to the knockout stage of the tournament. In the quarterfinals, Fnatic beat EDward Gaming 3-0 before suffering a 3-0 loss to KOO Tigers in the semifinals, putting an end to their campaign.
Reignover and Huni left Fnatic in November to join Immortals in December 2015 together. With a lineup including the two ex-Fnatic players, Pobelter, WildTurtle, and Adrian, Immortals were expected to be one of the top teams in the LCS based on their roster, and for the first six weeks of the split they lived up to - and even surpassed - those expectations. Reignover and Huni together extended their regular-season LCS winstreak from 18 games in Europe to 32 games overall as the team didn't drop a single game prior to week 7. However, in week 7 that streak was snapped as the team lost one game to reigning champions Counter Logic Gaming in week 7. They won the rest of their regular season games, but as the season progressed further they looked weaker and weaker as a team, and even seemed to falter against the last-place Team Dignitas, needing to come back against them to pull out a win.
With a top seed clinched into the playoffs, Immortals were guaranteed to face the lowest-seed team that won in the quarterfinals. That team ended up being Team Solomid, who were on a strong upswing after a sixth-place regular season finish. Despite their seeding advantage, Immortals lost 3-0 to TSM, with both their play and also their drafts called into question, with picks including Lucian top, Urgot mid, and three games of Karma support. Despite their loss, the team came back to win a convincing 3-0 over Team Liquid in the third-place match.
Expectations for Immortals going into the Summer Season were again high, after they were one of only three NA teams not to change any players in the mid-season break, and while they nearly repeated their spring split record - this time dropping only two series in the new best of 3 format as opposed to 1 best of 1 - they were indisputably the second-best team in the league. TSM with new rookie star support Biofrost went 17-1 in series, and they bested Immortals in both of their head-to-head series. Immortals still had a playoff bye, and so they were able to avoid TSM in the semis, instead facing the third-place Cloud9. In a back-and-forth five-game series, Immortals were upset and faced CLG in the third-place match, which they came back from a disastrous game 1 to win 3-2. Unfortunately, despite their combined 33-3 regular season record, Immortals only had 120 Championship Points compared to CLG's 130, and so it was CLG who won the automatic second-place 2016 Season World Championship seed from North America. And even though Immortals had the top seed in the Regional Finals, they were upset once again by Cloud9, and their season ended short of Worlds. Reignover joined CLG for their Korean bootcamp to "[contribute] his in-game knowledge." In November of 2017 Reignover left Immortals and within the next month, he joined Team Liquid. The team participated at IEM Season XI - Gyeonggi but were knocked out after an 0-2 loss to Samsung Galaxy and finished 3rd-4th.
The 2017 Season wasn't a good one for Reignover. Team Liquid went into the 2017 NA LCS Spring Season with a lot of hype but failed to live up to their expectations. They finished the regular season in 9th place with 5 wins and 13 losses. They would have to attend the 2017 NA LCS Summer Promotion and re-qualified for the LCS with a 3-2 victory over Gold Coin United. Their Summer Season in the LCS was a similar story. After another 9th place finish 4 wins and 14 losses, they attended the 2018 NA LCS Spring Promotion and retained their LCS spot with a 3-2 victory over Phoenix1. After a disappointing season, Reignover left TL in November and joined Counter Logic Gaming in December.
- Speaks fluent English and helps translate between Huni and the rest of Fnatic.
- Along with teammate Huni, had a 32-game-long regular season win streak starting on Fnatic with the last two games of the EU LCS 2015 Spring Split, continuing through the entirety of the EU LCS Summer Split, and concluding after 12 games on Immortals in the NA LCS 2016 Spring Split with a week 7 loss to Counter Logic Gaming.
- Doesn't enjoy playing champions that don't have a dash, as he feels limited in the plays he can make.
- Uses a CM Storm gaming keyboard and SteelSeries Sensei mouse.
