Samsung Galaxy leads League Champions Korea after beating MVP for its third win in a row, though it didn’t come without a shaky first set. MVP controlled the first game until Samsung’s Kang “Ambition” Chan-Yong stole Baron, which then led to a comeback victory. In the moment of truth, Ambition worked more on instinct, he told Fomos’ Son Chang-Sik.
“I was thinking about nothing when I stole the baron,” he told Fomos. “I think luck was on my side when it happened. I thought we could win if I could just steal that Baron and MVP was being too hasty with it.”
Samsung also began the spring split with a three-match winning streak but then dropped three straight matches. However, when asked if that was on his mind, Ambition affirmed Samsung’s new strength and how they intend to face the Jin Air Green Wings in their next game.
“We will fight to the death against Jin Air,” he said. “Our goal this season is not to lose against comparatively weaker teams, so if we can maintain our performance with that in mind, I think we will do fine.”
Ambition also commented on the practice that Samsung is doing on a daily basis, saying that it’s indeed grueling but not out of the ordinary.
“We practice just as much as anyone else,” he said. “The other teams won’t be skimping out either, so I don’t think we’re particularly doing more than anyone else. Lately the practices have been really tough on us, so I’d like to thank the coaching staff and my teammates for their continued advice and support.”
He ended the interview thanking his girlfriend, who continues to cheer for him “despite not being able to see each other often.”
