Smeb: “I think (MaRin) is as good as ever.”

After a hard fought 2-1 win against the Afreeca Freecs on Thursday, KT Rolster’s Song “Smeb” Kyung-ho and Go “Score” Dong-bin were invited to the post-match interview with OGN casters Lee “CloudTemplar” Hyun-woo and Kim Dong-jun, where Smeb confessed to playing a little irrationally against Jang “MaRin” Gyeong-hwan.

“I think (MaRin) is as good as ever,” Smeb said. “What is personally disappointing to me was that I played too emotionally in Game 1. I need to play the game more rationally, but I didn’t do that. I feel good that I was able to put myself together for Game 3.”

Smeb went as far to claim responsibility for his team’s Game 2 loss, attributing it to his unsafe laning.

“I think (we lost) because I was too emotional,” he said. “I needed to put more pressure. I didn’t play safe at points when I should have, got ranked, and they took advantage of that.”

It seemed that KT was expecting an easier victory, as Score also said that he didn’t expect for Afreeca to put up such a fight.

“I panicked a bit more than I thought,” Score said. “I came in today expecting a 2-0, but I learned that there are no teams to take lightly.”

That didn’t mean Score didn’t show his ability to banter, and he commented briefly about Afreeca’s jungler Lee “Mowgli” Jae-ha, who debuted against KT, as well as Lee “Spirit” Da-yun.

“I’m a little sorry to Mowgli, since this was his debut and I used a weird champion,” he said. “I think Spirit’s Olaf is better than most other players.”
