T1 is on the road to win LCK. Only Two steps lefts, one is DAMWON Gaming and the other is Griffin.
23rd August (KST) in LoL park, the defending champion, SKT T1 faced SANDBOX Gaming and defeated them with a clean sheet. T1’s level was higher than SANDBOX Gaming in terms of macro, teamfight, and every factor of player and team’s ability. Kim “Clid” Tae-Min, Lee “Faker” Sang-hyeok, and Kim “Khan” Dong-ha were named MVPs for games 1, 2, and 3.
The following is an interview with Faker.
Q. T1’s current performance is unbelievably good. How do you think about today’s result?
We won the last match against SANDBOX Gaming during the summer split. We knew how to win against them and we displayed it well. The remaining matches are so important that every teammate is practicing really hard these days.
Q. T1 has been picking various champions in mid lane. Akali, Qiyana, Kassadin, Ekko, Neeko, and Vladimir were on the list - six champions in six games. It means T1’s mid laner, your condition is extremely good now.
Since the new patch was released, I’m able to pick various champions. All of the champions I picked today were what I expected to win the game. And I proved it by results. Even my current form is not good enough in my standards... I’ll show better performance at the next match against DAMWON Gaming.
Q. During the last interview with Khan and you, Khan called you 'Captain' instead of your name or nickname. What is the behind story about it?
I didn’t realize he called me 'Captain'. I think he called me captain because he believes me. (Any opinion on that?) I don’t have any feelings about that.
Q. The next match is DAMWON Gaming. According to some sources, DAMWON Gaming’s current performance is as good as SKT T1. What will be the point of that match?
We lost the last match against DAMWON Gaming during the summer split. So, this is the time for revenge. Although there are only two days left, I’ll prepare to display the best performance. Their strength comes from the top and mid. The mid and jungle synergy of each team will be the main point of the game.
Q. Bang was in LoL park at the last match against Afreeca Freecs, did you guys meet? What did you talk about?
I didn’t know that. But I found his signature on the whiteboard. He only left his signature.
Q. Any last comments for the fans?
We only moved two steps. We don’t have time to take a break. We will show you a better performance. Please cheer for us.
