KT Rolster brutally took apart the underdog story of Samsung Galaxy on Wednesday with a dismantling 3-0 sweep. By not dropping a single game against Samsung, KT has won 19 consecutive games against over Samsung but must now face another old rival, SK Telecom T1, in the next round of the League Champions Korea playoff gauntlet.
In a live post-match interview with casters Lee “CloudTemplar” Hyun-Woo and Kim Dong-Jun, KT’s top laner Kim “Ssumday” Chan-Ho remained very humble and gave all of the glory to his teammates.
“We are very happy we won with a 3-0, but I’m personally dissatisfied with my performance today,” he said. “I should repay my teammates in the next match. (We won against Samsung 19 times because) my teammates are just that good. I simply got carried.”
Team captain Ko “Score” Dong-Bin was also solid against Samsung, and though Samsung’s Kang “Ambition” Chan-Yong played aggressively against Score in order to gain an upper hand, Score simply hit back at every single turn, showcasing a jungle rally. Score also said the team deserves more praise than he, but he did share one piece of knowhow.
“When I sleep, I always do image training,” Score said. “I don’t have anything to do when I sleep, so I think about where the enemy would be if I go in a certain direction.”
When pressed more for details, he shared his “secret” and said that once one knows which jungle camps are dead, the process becomes easier, which only baffled the casters more.
KT’s mid laner Song “Fly” Yong-Jun got two MVP nominations in Games 1 and 2, having very favorable lanes against a rather timid looking Lee “Crown” Min-Ho. He also had some interesting picks, but he said that the lane victory had a lot to do with his confidence.
Game 3’s most impressive player was No “Arrow” Dong-Hyun as the Jhin, who sniped out Samsung in immaculate fashion. The casters certainly thought that this game was Arrow’s finest as Jhin, and Arrow seemed to agree.
“Even when I look back, I think it was my best game as Jhin,” he said. “I don’t practice him a lot particularly, but I think my instincts were good.”
CloudTemplar wanted to ask Arrow what he thought about the criticism pointed his way from the community, saying that Arrow “lacks a strong play style,” but Arrow shot back with the force of a bullet.
“My biggest criticism is that I don’t have a strong play style, but you can flip that into saying that I fit in any style.”
