After the match, Score, Ucal and Smeb were interviewed by SPOTV.
Q. Congratulations on the win. How do you feel?
Score: Game 2 was really hard, so I’m tired. Still, I’m happy that we won.
Ucal: Game 2 could have ended quickly, but it went on for too long. I really want to go to the bathroom now. (Laughs)
Q. Game 1 went on very smoothly.
Score: In the early-mid game, the game went on as we wanted. We took the game without many variables happening.
Ucal: I think our teamwork was good today. Deft usually doesn’t use his TP at a low level, but he did today.
Score: Actually, he didn’t need to come but he did anyway. I think he wanted the kill.
Ucal: It was with the red buff. It should have been given to the mid laner. (Laughs)
Q. You had a triple kill in Game 2. How was Kindred?
Score: The early game was hard, and it went on different from what we planned.
Q. What did you think after Elder was stolen?
Ucal: I was sure that we’ll win so I didn’t worry too much.
Q. It was the longest match of this season.
Score: I thought the game went on for long, and it was really tiring. I feel good because we were able to maintain our concentration and end the game as the winner.
Q. Yesterday was Smeb’s birthday. How was it?
Smeb: Since we had a match today, I practiced hard. It wasn’t such a satisfying birthday, but I was happy because many people wished me a happy birthday and gave me a lot of presents.
Q. Many teams are taking part in the Rift Rivals. Any comments regarding Rift Rivals?
Score: We don't usually lose to foreign teams, so I’m confident. I think SKT, Kingzone and Afreeca can also prove that LCK is strong.
Ucal: There are several mid laners that I like in the LPL so I’m very eager to play against them.
Smeb: We’ll do our best to deliver good performance as LCK representatives.
