SKT Faker will make sure that he'll end the tournament without letting go of the trophy.
On May 11th (PDT) in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil; SK Telecom T1 picked up a win against Team SoloMid in the first match of Day 2 in the Group Stage of Mid-Season Invitational 2017. After the game, Sanghyuk "Faker" Lee was interviewed on stage for his thoughts after the match.
As for SKT's team performance so far in the MSI, Faker was satisfied but with a small concern: "I'm satisfied with our results so far. However, this is only the group stage - we have to prepare for the finals...and semifinals. We shouldn't let our guards down."
When asked about Huni, who was certainly more outspoken during his interview yesterday, Faker appreciated Huni's presence in the team: "Huni brightened the team's mood up, and he has that 'crazy' vibe with him. In game, his performance is very solid, so I think the team's overall performance became more solid overall."
Finally, Faker appreciated the opening ceremony that treated SKT as the defending champion, but he also felt some pressure from it: "It felt like we were being respected as the reigning champion, so it felt great. However, it also felt like we had to win the tournament - there was some pressure (from lifting up the trophy in the opening ceremony)."
