Top Esports just made Worlds history by completing the first-ever reverse sweep since the event's inception a decade ago. While the whole team was solid in their three victories, much of their advantage came from impressive jungling from Hung "Karsa" Hao-Hsuan, including two incredible victories piloting Lee Sin, which were the first two wins the champ has seen this Worlds.
After finalizing their reverse sweep, Karsa spoke with Jeesun on the Korean broadcast for a post game interview to break down the series.
You reached the semifinals in a reverse sweep, a first-ever in the World Championship. How do you feel?
We lost the first two games because we weren’t in good condition, but we brought it up afterward so we were able to win.
By giving up the first two games, you were at match point earlier than expected. As a veteran, how did you encourage your teammates?
In the first two games, we lost because we threw too much. I said that we could still win and we kept our mind positive so we were able to win.
Nidalee wasn’t picked nor banned until game 4, and you even picked Jarvan IV. Lee Sin was winless in the whole World Championship until your game today. What’s the background of your jungle picks?
Top Esports is a team that pressures strong during the laning phase. As for me, I can play any jungle champion according to where we need more power.
It was an extremely close full five-game series. Who do you think was the MVP for today?
I’d like to give the MVP to 369. From games 1 to 4, 369 did so well. It was all because of him that we were able to reach game 5. I want to say thank you.
Suning defeated JD Gaming and reached the semifinals. You’ll be facing them. How are your resolutions?
I’m confident. Ever since I started my professional career, I’ve never lost to SofM. Whichever team wins, I hope we’re able to bring LPL the World Championship.
