Gen.G Esports continued their winning streak by shutting out Afreeca Freecs in the 2020 League of Legends Champions Korea (LCK) Spring Split. Although they struggled a bit in Game 1, Gen.G didn’t fall behind at all in the second game and took the victory for their 8th consecutive win. Kim “Rascal” Kwang-hee and Kim “Clid” Tae-min delivered great performances and were voted as players of the games.
You’re on an 8-game winning streak, the longest since Gen.G existed. How do you feel?
Clid: Although we’re on a winning streak, I think it’s important to not be careless in all matches.
Game 1 wasn’t that easy. When did you think it went your way?
Clid: I played Jarvan IV and since we had Zilean which is good in the late game, I played comfortably.
(To Rascal) Gen.G’s comp in Game 1 didn’t appear that often in the LCK. How did you find it and how did you practice?
Rascal: Zilean was a pick that Bdd likes. I thought we would win in the late game because our comp was better for the late game. We also had quite a high win rate if the games were longer.
Rascal is getting good evaluations among the top laners. How does that feel?
Rascal: Obviously, I feel good, but I won’t be arrogant. I still have a long way to go. I’ll be trying harder.
According to the Gen.G video, Rascal is a kkondae.
Rascal: It’s intentional editing. Yesterday, I asked the younger players who bother them the most. They said that Ruler and Bdd are the worst and I bother them the least. I’ll treat them more nicely in the future.
Ruler fell shy of 1,000 kills today. Did you know?
Clid: It seemed that he didn’t mind how many kills he had.
Are you conscious of your undefeated record on Jarvan IV?
Clid: Jarvan IV is a champion that I’m confident in, but I’m not that conscious of my record. I play confidently and if I lose, oh well.
When your Rek’Sai collided with Alistar, Alistar popped up very high. Does that happen often?
Clid: Rek’Sai’s skill has an advantage so it appears often in solo queue and scrims.
You’re leading the POG rank along with Bdd. How do you feel?
Clid: I got the POG for the finals last year, but I haven’t received the award in the regular season. But I’m not that greedy for it; winning the championship is more important.
Your next match is against T1. They’re the only team that beat you this season.
Clid: T1 is the only team that beat us and my former team as well, but I think it’s more important to concentrate on our own plays.
Rascal: I’m longing to have revenge against T1. I’ll prepare well to make sure that we win.
