SK Telecom T1’s support player gave a well thought out response regarding his team’s current first place standing for the regular season.
After defeating Longzhu Gaming on Wednesday, SKT is now one victory away from securing a spot in the finals of the League Champions Korea spring split playoffs by finishing in first place. But in an interview with Fomos’ Kim “Kenzi” Yong-woo, Lee “Wolf” Jae-wan said that the first place finish could actually be a source for concern.
“To be honest, I don’t know what’s so good about being first in the season because I feel like the other teams in fifth, fourth, third and so forth will come into the playoffs after working even harder, though we’ll do the same,” he said. “I think there could be a chance of our team losing our edge while we don’t play until the finals.”
Wolf did say that the couple of days off during the playoffs — if they get any — will be welcome, though the final standings will not have any bearing on how hard they will practice in order to win the playoffs.
Wolf also showed signs of fatigue after the full three game series and admitted in the interview that he really was tired. This is a trend for Wolf, as he continued that “since last year,” he noticed more fatigue, especially after a full three game series.
