On the 3rd, MEGA Esports had a 1-1 day. They started with a loss against Hong Kong Attitude, but they made up for that loss by defeating Lowkey Esports. In their match against Lowkey, Pantheon wasn’t banned for the first time in this tournament, and MEGA picked him up immediately. Mid laner Nuttapong “G4” Menkasikan spoke up about the Pantheon pick after the match.
How do you feel with the first win at Worlds?
I felt really good. After losing the first game, I lost a lot of confidence, but now that I won the second game, it really feels better.
Lowkey let Pantheon go through the Ban phase. What did you think of that?
It's certainly an OP pick. I thought I should grab it as soon as they let it through the ban phase. I practiced Pantheon mid a lot so I was confident in playing him.
Why do you think they opened Pantheon?
Personally, I think the opponent must have been really confident and thought they can take on Pantheon.
Today was wrapped up with 1 win and 1 loss. How do you plan to prepare with 2 days off?
I won't be making the same mistakes again and get 2 wins for sure.
