In the 2021 LCK Spring Split match between T1 and Gen.G on March 13, T1 featured a roster that changed all the members on the top side. In the first game, T1’s top side carried the game and the bot side led the second game. Moon “Cuzz” Woo-chan who played for the first time in 42 days played Hecarim in both games and towed the team’s 2-0 shutout.
“I haven’t played for a while. I’m happy that the things we put together went well,” said Cuzz. “I gained a lot of confidence while practicing, so I thought we’d be able to win if I don’t make mistakes by getting nervous.” About his own performance, he seemed satisfied and said, “In both games, I made a couple of mistakes — I’m quite satisfied with my performance except for those mistakes. I think my mechanics were pretty good in skirmishes and teamfights as well.”
Cuzz hadn’t been playing since last Jan. 31. He would have been wanting to play for a long time. “There were parts that I wasn’t able to prove in official games, so I understand,” said Cuzz. “We’re still in the spring split, and since I can’t give up, I tried to keep my mechanics sharp by doing my best in solo queue. Also, I kept preparing for official games through team scrims and watching the games.”
He also had a few words about T1’s 10-man roster. “It’s positive that the players can share their experience to learn about the parts we don’t know. It’s good that there are teammates that I can lean on for help when times are difficult. Except for Ryu “Keria” Min-seok, Our roster today consisted of the players that played together for a long time. We focused on the details today.”
Also, Cuzz didn’t hold back in praising T1’s head coach Yang “Daeny” Dae-in. “Coach Daeny tries to understand how the players feel. He has a lot of passion for LoL and plays a lot of solo queue. When he sees a champion that seems good, he experiments many times in solo queue and finds the advantages by talking with the players. I get motivated by him working so hard. I want to gain more experience to share.”
T1’s remaining matches are against DRX, Afreeca Freecs, and Hanwha Life Esports. For the remaining matches, Cuzz said, “Regardless of our opponents, I’ll do my best to prepare and focus in the games.”
