The Jin Air Green Wings stepped over the Afreeca Freecs with an entertaining series Tuesday, with Jin Air taking the match 2-0. Jin Air’s mid laner Lee “Kuzan” Seong-Hyeok played an impressive LeBlanc in Game 1 and snagged MVP points in Game 2 as Azir, but SK Telecom T1 is still a looming colossus for Jin Air.
“We’re running an a winning streak so it feels great,” he said in the post-match interview on stream. “But since SKT is our next opponent, it’s pretty scary.”
Interestingly, both Jin Air and Afreeca banned out Twisted Fate and Azir from each other in Game 1, but in Game 2 both champions were played against one another. Even with Kuzan on his impressive Azir play, he felt that there was still much to be desired.
“I thought I’d be able to take Twisted Fate out by myself if I played Azir, so I choose him,” he said. “But I think we’ll just ban him out next time.”
Lee “Faker” Sang-Hyeok has also said in an interview that Jin Air’s Jin “Blanc” Seong-Min would be a harder match up compared to Kuzan, but Kuzan didn’t lose hope and delivered an ambitious goal.
“Faker is a great player, enough to say that he is the best in the world,” he said. “But I will try to stop him myself in the next match.”
