Impressions of today's victory?


ShowMaker: It feels great to secure a playoff spot regardless of the remaining matches, and I'm eager to continue our winning streak.


Kingen: I'm also delighted to continue the winning streak and secure a playoff spot.


A heated mid-lane matchup. Both mid-laners from both teams received the Player of the Game in Games 1 and 2. What were the key focuses when facing Clozer?


ShowMaker: Clozer has a distinctively aggressive playstyle, particularly excelling in laning, so I paid utmost attention to the laning phase.


Utilizing Karma extensively this Spring, today marks the first time you received the POG with Karma. What differed between Karma in Game 1 and Game 2?


ShowMaker: In Game 1, my Mantra usage was suboptimal, and I couldn't apply enough pressure in lane. In Game 2, the laning phase went well, and my Mantra hits were accurate, resulting in a better performance.


With your performance, you achieved a pentakill with a flawless 10/0/4 KDA. It marks your fourth pentakill. Thoughts?


ShowMaker: I never imagined I would ever get a pentakill with Karma. I feel fortunate to have secured kills well and feel great about it.


(To Kingen) In Game 2, Camille, a counter to Aatrox, made an appearance. How did you handle the lane?


Kingen: As time goes on, the fight becomes more favorable for Camille. I thought I needed to assert dominance in the top lane before time runs out. With the help of my teammates, I managed to do it.


Game 3 featured LeBlanc. What are the advantages of LeBlanc?


ShowMaker: LeBlanc is adept at survivability. I chose her because I didn't want to play passively against the enemy composition. Her versatility and proactivity are strengths.


Game 3 saw minimal skirmishes until the 27-minute mark. Why the cautious approach to the game?


Kingen: Both our bot lane and the opponent's picked strong champions. So, I thought if I aggressively played Renekton in the top lane to apply pressure as well, it would be challenging for the opponents.


Amidst a tight game, securing the fourth dragon and the elder dragon led to victory. When did you feel confident about winning?


Kingen: I felt we would win when the message popped up saying Poppy took the elder dragon. I thought we gained a significant advantage, although I didn't expect an immediate end to the game.


ShowMaker: I was hitting Udyr while the lights went out, so I was just hearing the sounds and cheering for our team. When I saw that we took the elder dragon, I thought our team did exceptionally well.


Kingen's birthday is tomorrow. Did your teammates wish you a happy birthday?


Kingen: Not really. [Laughs]


Does ShowMaker have a message to Kingen?


ShowMaker: Happy birthday to you~ [Sings happy birthday]


Kingen: Listening to him sing, I think I can perform even better.


You’ll be facing T1 and Gen.G next week. What preparations are underway?


ShowMaker: The remaining matchups are relatively tough. Since I'm not satisfied with my individual performance today, I'll focus on improving my form to compete well.


Kingen: Like ShowMaker said, I believe we need to defeat the strong teams in the remaining matches to show a strong performance in the playoffs. So, I want to focus on that and approach the games with diligence.
