On the 25th (KST), the 2018 LoL KeSPA Cup Round 1 Quarterfinals Group D series, SKT T1 vs bbq Olivers was held at Gangnam Actoz Arena. SKT T1 delivered near-perfect performance and won game 1, but rather struggled against bbq in game 2. Still, they managed to win a teamfight in the late game which directly led to destroying bbq's Nexus and closed down the series 2:0.
The following is the interview with SKT T1's top laner, Khan.
What are your thoughts on the victory?
Although we won 2:0, we made a lot of mistakes in game 2. I think our performance was not perfect.
You won game 1 quite easily. It seemed like the bottom lane gave the team the advantage early in the game. How did it feel?
If the bottom does well, all I need to do to win is just do my own thing. That's why I was able to perform in a comfortable state.
On the other hand, the team struggled in game 2. You won after winning a fight in the late game. What kind of calls did you guys share?
We told each other, "They'll also make the same amount of mistakes so let's take our time and find what we can do."
Now that you've joined the team for quite a while... What kind of thoughts came up to your mind while performing with your teammates?
As time passed, I was certain that it would work out even better than I first expected. If I try harder in the future, I think it would improve much more compared to now.
The team seems to want the KeSPA Cup trophy a lot.
Anyone can be the champions. The results will differ based on how well we do.
What's your resolution for your next match against DAMWON Gaming?
It's always the same. I'll be thinking of winning no matter which team I face. Still, I'll have to be careful of Nuguri since his performance is very good these days.
Do you have any last words?
The more I perform together with my teammates, the more I feel that our overall performance is increasing. I'll do my best to deliver better performance compared to the past tournaments so I'll be asking for more support. Thank you.
