AF Aiming: "For Kai'Sa, the item build that can evolve Q early is best. The Ruined King build should be done with Vayne."

It’s a valuable win after your 3-game losing streak. How do you feel?

Kiin: We were down a bit because we kept losing recently but it’s a relief that we won today and I think we can crawl back up.

Aiming: We kept losing whenever we played but I’m happy to bring down SANDBOX which is a strong team.

Your ability carrying Game 2 was amazing. What did you think after seeing how much damage you dealt?

: I didn’t really think that I dealt so much damage, so I was really surprised.

Before Game 2, did the team agree upon laying strength in the top lane?

Kiin: We did talk about that and I think it went well as planned.

In that game, you bought QSS rather early. Did you feel pressured that you shouldn’t be cut off?

Kiin: I bought QSS early because Zoe’s sleepy bubble could cause trouble.

Can you explain a bit about the solo kill moment?

: I scaled pretty well but Summit was pushing lane so I thought I should make him pay. He did live for a bit longer than expected but I was sure that I could kill him.

What did Kiin say after Game 2?

: He encouraged everybody by saying that everyone did well.

There are many different item builds for Kai’Sa. You bought IE and Guinsoo first today. What do you think is best?

Aiming: I think for Kai'Sa, the item build that can evolve Q early is best. The Ruined King build should be done with Vayne.

How did you seize the kill chance in Game 3?

Aiming: Jelly said that we can do it, so I did. The second one was also well synergized.

Was Baron just to lure the opponents to fight in the last teamfight?

: Yes, the others were saying that we’ll win no matter what if a fight starts so we used Baron as bait.

What’s your goal for Round 2?

: In the current situation, I think we need to get out of the danger of being relegated. We’ll need to put in more effort so that our performance becomes better.

: I wish we can get within 5th place.

Lastly, a word to the fans?

Kiin: We were on a losing streak for long and made the fans worry. We’ll do our best so that we can deliver better performance from now on.
