SK Telecom T1 prevented a two-match losing streak with a back-and-forth 2-1 victory over CJ Entus on Monday on the backs of their star support Lee “Wolf” Jae-Wan and Bae “Bang” Jun-Sik, who were acknowledged with MVP nods. Wolf talked more about his eight deaths during game one in the post-match live interview.
“I got picked on for no reason,” he said. “It was very saddening since this is the first time in years that I’ve gotten eight deaths during a game, but I think there is some redemption through MVP points.”
When asked if he regretted dying while trying to save someone, Wolf mentioned a moment when he didn’t need to die but took the death in order to save Lee “Faker” Sang-Hyeok’s Viktor. Apparently it “felt weird” but he did admit that it was better him than a carry. When the interviewer mentioned that Faker surely feels thankful for his sacrifice, Wolf said “I don’t think so.”
The shining moments of Wolf’s game-one performance had to be his beautiful knock up combo on LeBlanc, giving SKT the edge in larger engagements. Seeing as CJ’s most powerful champion was the LeBlanc in mid lane, Wolf said he think some recognition was possible.
“I thought that even with my deaths I might have gotten closer to being the MVP (of game 1,)” he said. “Not that I predicted it, but thought if I played well I might be able to.”
Turning their attention to some fan questions, one of the fans at the stadium asked who on the SKT roster is the most dependable.
“No one but me,” Wolf said. “We are all very individualistic so there’s no one I can trust other than myself.”
This sentiment was echoed by his teammate Bang, as when we was asked the same question, he also curtly said “absolutely no one.”
