Although SK Telecom T1 took home another 2-0 victory over Samsung Galaxy on Thursday, the head coach of SKT, Choi “L.i.E.S” Byung-hoon said that he is more concerned in an interview with OSEN’s Ko Yong-jun.
“I think we won because we got lucky,” he said. “The game play today was rather lacking today. Since we have time until our match against KT (Rolster) so we’ll polish ourselves as much as possible before then.”
Matches between SKT and KT are dubbed the “Telecom Wars” among LCK fans, and the rivalry between the two seems to have reached a peak after KT signed a lot of high-profile players in the offseason, such as Song “Smeb” Kyung-ho, Kim “Deft” Hyuk-kyu and Cho “Mata” Se-hyeong.
With the most anticipated match of the spring split coming up after the break, coach Choi said that there is still much more work to be done.
“It’ll be hard to beat KT with the game play we saw (against Samsung),” he said. “We need to prepare more and practice more. The team has a lot to work on.”
