On the 25th of July (KST), SKT T1 defeated bbq Olivers 2:1. Yesterday was a glimmer of hope for the team’s postseason qualification since they are still behind in the Summer standings. After the match, we met SKT’s jungler Blank and heard about his thoughts on their victory.
Q. The team defeated bbq Olivers 2:1. How do you feel?
Since the team didn’t have a good atmosphere in game 2, I tried to shake it off and perform better in game 3. I’m satisfied that we won.
Q. Your Sejuani dominated game 1. How would you rate your plays?
Personally, aside from some small mistakes, I think my plays were flawless.
Q. The team kind of collapsed in game 2. Were there any plays that you weren’t satisfied with?
My positioning wasn’t that good in some of the fights so I got myself killed.
Q. Nocturne is now seen as a ‘booby trap’ in the LCK; teams are starting to lose using him. How would you personally rate Nocturne?
Well, personally I think Nocturne is a good champion if you know how to properly use him. I think performance differs based on the player.
Q. Like I stated earlier, your Sejuani plays were remarkable. Why do you use her as your main pick these days?
She’s a tank jungler that has decent initiators which makes her useful in teamfights. She’s not that bad in laning phase as well.
Q. Can you explain the difference between Faker and Pirean’s playstyle?
Faker can dominate the mid lane matchup using his aggressive plays. On the other hand, Pirean tries to focus on supporting other laners.
Q. I heard that you can imitate Kindred well. (laughs) May I hear it?
“Never one…” Sorry, I just can’t do it. (laughs)
Q. In your past pictures when you first came to SKT, you looked rather skinny. These days I think you have become more cute.
When I feel stressed out, I alleviate it by eating. That is why I eat a lot when I lose. If we can win every match from now on and claim the trophy, I’ll become skinny again. (laughs)
Q. Do you have anything to say about your next matchup against Jin Air Green Wings?
Although Jin Air is somewhat behind in the standings, they are still a solid team; I’m going to have to prepare well. Thank you.
