LoL star celebrated Worlds win by feeding $7k into Genshin Impact wishes

Imagine just winning the League of Legends World Championship. How would you want to spend your time? Well, if you’re DAMWON Gaming’s Cho ‘BeryL’ Geon-hee, it’s on Genshin Impact ⁠— dropping nearly $7,000 on wishes to celebrate the victory.

Look, we’ve all looked at the wish screen in Genshin Impact and tried to justify that next roll. Maybe this time you’d land on Jean or Diluc, and you’d finally hit that power spike to keep progressing deeper into the story.

It can get pretty expensive at the end of the day. There’s plenty of stories of Twitch streamers dropping thousands into Genshin Impact, and while they might have gotten the waifu they wanted, it wasn’t worth the cost.

BeryL’s DAMWON Gaming won the League of Legends 2020 World Championship, and he celebrated by spending big on Genshin Impact.

However, after winning LoL Worlds 2020, one star thought it was a good time to drop his prize money in celebration in Genshin Impact.

DAMWON Gaming support star Cho ‘BeryL’ Geon-hee reportedly spent over 7.7 million Korean Won ($6,880 USD) on Genshin Impact in the lead-up to, and after winning, the World Championship.

The Korean squad took down China’s final hope, Suning Gaming, in a 3-1 Worlds thriller in Shanghai on November 1.

BeryL’s money is going to good use. Unlike his teammates, who have been streaming and playing League of Legends after winning Worlds, he’s been on the hard grind in Mondstatd and beyond with Genshin.

It’s not clear what BeryL rolled off the back of these wishes though.

He does already have Diluc, Qiqi, Fischl, and Vista in his squad, which is about as good as you could ask for. One could only imagine with nearly $7,000 of wishes how deep into his constellations he is now.

BeryL’s got a pretty stacked team in Genshin Impact. You’d hope so after dropping $7,000.

He’s not only been spending money on Genshin Impact either. Apparently he’s also been on the Princess Connect Re:Dive hype train.

He posted in a community forum just minutes after winning the World Championship ⁠— probably before contacting anyone else!

There’s no confirmed prize pool for the League of Legends World Championship, but given numbers in previous years, BeryL’s DAMWON could have received upwards of $1 million.

Split that between the five players, and that’s a lot of Genshin Impact wishes, or other gacha-related purchases. It’s his money, and if that’s how he wants to celebrate lifting the Summoner’s Cup, then BeryL has earned it.

Best Krig 6 loadout for Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War

The Krig 6 has slowly been creeping into the meta spotlight after the recent FFAR and M16 nerfs, so find out which attachments you should equip to increase this gun’s lethality. 

This deadly assault rifle delivers excellent precision and deals great damage across all ranges, making it one the most viable assault rifles in the current meta. This full-auto AR boasts excellent weapon control and quick reloads, while its methodical fire rate helps minimize recoil and keeps your shots accurate. 

It may not deal as much damage as the game’s AK-74, but its excellent accuracy more than makes up for that. The Krig 6’s minimal recoil also allows it to excel across Black Op’s Cold War’s larger-scale maps and modes. Whether it will be a meta defining gun when it’s added to Warzone remains to be seen, but it’s more than likely that this gun will likely prove to be a popular pick. 

In order to help you get the most out of the Krig 6, we’ve put together a loadout that you can use to crush the competition.

The Krig 6 barely has any recoil when kitted out with these attachments.

Here are the best attachments you can use on your Krig 6 in Cold War, filling every slot thanks to the Gunfighter wildcard:

  • Millstop Reflex
  • Infantry Compensator 
  • 19.7” Ranger
  • SOF Target Designator
  • Foregrip
  • 40 RND
  • Airborne Elastic Wrap
  • Raider Stock 

By picking the Gunfighter wildcard, you can equip a total of eight attachments which gives you a great deal of flexibility when it comes to building the perfect loadout. The Millstop Reflex provides the Krig 6 with a clean sight that doesn’t clutter the screen, allowing you to easily spot enemies at a distance. 

Combine this with the 60% reveal distance from the SOF Target Designator and you’ll be able to snap onto the most well-hidden foes. After all, visibility remains a big problem in Black Ops Cold War, so having any attachments that help improve this is huge. 

Next up is the Infantry Compensator and Foregrip which diminish horizontal recoil by 27%, which makes the Krig 6 incredibly accurate. In fact, the recoil on this setup is so minimal that it effectively allows you to beam opponents across all distances. 

Bullet Velocity is also incredibly important in Black Ops Cold War and it is often the reason why the hit detection of certain weapons can feel a little off. After all, being able to quickly drop your foe before they can even react is always going to be beneficial, so the 19.7” Ranger is a must.

The Krig 6 is steadily climbing up the popularity rankings.

Another top pick is the Airborne Elastic Wrap. This incredible attachment increases the Krig 6’s aim down sight time, gives you 90% Flinch Resistance, and allows you to aim while going prone. ADS speed is just as important in Black Ops Cold War as it was in Modern Warfare, particularly for any AR loadouts that want to be competitive against the game’s SMGs. 

Meanwhile, the added 90% Flinch Resistance also keeps your shots accurate even when you take damage. This will often enable you to counter your attackers with high precision shots. The Raider Stock also increases the AR’s Sprint to Fire time and Aim Walking Speed, giving you a great reactionary playstyle that can quickly melt foes in close-quarter firefights. 

While the 50 RND mag attachment offers a great deal of firepower, its reduction in ADS time makes it less optimal for standard multiplayer. As a result, the 40 RND variant has been used instead. The Krig 6 is capable of melting through multiple foes in a few bullets, so the 40 RND mag is more than enough.
