On the 30th, at the Seoul LoL Park, the 44th day of the 2019 LCK Spring Split took place. On the second series of the day, SK Telecom T1 defeated Afreeca Freecs with a score of 2-0. With this victory, SKT was able to secure the 2nd place in the 2019 LCK Spring Regular Season.
The following is an interview with the man known for his notepad, kkOma.
Your team has finished their last match of the 2019 LCK Spring regular season. How do you feel?
I want to begin by thanking my players. I wanted them to slowly improve with time, and they did exactly that.
Do you think SKT is at their max potential right now?
We still have the playoffs remaining, so I can't really say anything regarding how strong they are. We still have a lot of room for improvement. Each and every player on SKT's roster carry immense potential. I want to help them unleash that potential during the playoffs.
Are you satisfied with the regular season results?
It's a bit regretful. It would've been a whole lot better to finish in 1st place. However, our main goal is to win the Spring Playoffs and qualify for the 2019 MSI. We'll throw everything that we have during the playoffs.
Any predictions regarding the playoffs?
Every playoffs team is formidable; there won't be any "easy" teams. I don't know who we will end up facing in 'playoffs round 2', but I believe it'll be a difficult match for us regardless of who we end up playing.
If SKT manages to reach the Spring Finals, your team will face Griffin, a team that is currently 2-0 against SKT.
I'm not even thinking that far. All my thoughts are currently focused on the semifinals match.
I'll be happy even if we just reach the Finals and meet Griffin. (Laughs)
Any last words?
I want to thank all my players and coaching staff. Thanks to their hard work, SKT was able to finish the Spring Regular Season in 2nd place. I also want to thank all of our fans for the big support.
