On May 19th (PDT) in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil; SK Telecom T1 sweeped Flash Wolves in the first semifinals of Mid-Season Invitational 2017. After the match, Sanghyuk "Faker" Lee was interviewed on stage by Riot Games Brazil for his thoughts.
Faker emphasized that the team is doing their best in the knockout stage: "We were experimental with our picks and plays in the group stage, so we might have looked as if we weren't in our best form. We did our best to prepare for the semifinals, so expect us to do well in the finals as well."
When asked whether the current SKT has the best roster compared to the previous rosters, Faker answered that the team is at the strongest as team: "I don't agree that our current roster is the best, but I still feel like we are at the strongest as a team."
