On the 22nd, at the Seoul OGN eStadium, the 23rd day of the 2018 LCK Spring Split took place. On the 1st series of the day, bbq Olivers took down Kingzone DragonX, the 1st placed team in the LCK standings, with a score of 2-1. Today, Trick held his own against Peanut in the jungle and played very proactively, cornering KZ.
The following is an interview with Trick.
You've ended your losing streak by defeating the team in 1st place. How do you feel?
The team atmosphere was turning bad due to the losing streak. I'm happy that we were able to beat KZ.
Were you pressured for having to play against KZ?
I had a good feeling while preparing for the series. I also felt that I was recovering from my slump, so there wasn't any pressure.
In game 1, despite having the advantage, you guys weren't able to snowball.
In terms of macro, Ghost and I had different ideas through shotcalling. Next time, we'll do our best to work together and snowball more quickly.
Why weren't you playing more recently?
I wanted a break because I've lost a lot of my confidence. So during the break, I invested more time into solo queue.
Unlike the 1st game, you guys lost helplessly in game 2. What was the problem?
Our champion picks were very passive. Crazy also had a hard time in the early-game, so it was very difficult.
The 3rd game was very long. A comeback could've happened at any time. What kind of feedback went back and forth between your teammates?
I had a feeling that we were going to win today. After our loss, we talked about our teamfighting.
Ever since the past, you've always played well against Peanut. What's your secret?
I don't know why, but against Peanut, I always hold up my own.
In the next patch, a large change will come to the junglers. What're your predictions?
The 'Tracker's Knife' was removed. I think everyone will build gold income items. I also think Lee Sin will be affected the most.
Out of 10, what score would you like to give yourself and your team?
My skillshots were off today, so I'll give myself a 7. As for my team, for having played confidently against a strong team, I'll give them an 8.
Any last words?
While taking a break, I heard words of encouragement from my former coaches and players from Europe. I want to thank them.
