Samsung Galaxy’s 2-0 victory over the best League of Legends team in the world seemed validating for SSG’s jungler.
After Saturday’s win, Kang “Haru” Min-seung said he finally feels like his team is one of the “strong teams” in League Champions Korea during the post-match interview with OGN casters Lee “CloudTemplar” Hyun-woo and Kim Dong-jun.
“I feel like we are also a strong team with this victory,” he said. “I normally doubted whether we were a strong steam, even though we were in second place, but I have certainty this time.”
Game 1 really was a showcase for Samsung’s jungler Haru, as he took early game advantages with aggressive plays as Graves. According to Park “Ruler” Jae-hyeok, Haru’s success had a slight side effect.
“With Haru getting kills up top and telling us that he’s getting fed, we could have just farmed it out,” he said. “But CoreJJ (Jo Yong-in) told us we should fight. I wasn’t sure but I went for it and we lost.”
Although Ruler was a solid MVP choice for Game 2 as Ezreal, he said he felt like he could have done more in a prolonged team fight, saying that he “could’ve gotten more out of that fight.” Haru agreed, but admitted that Ruler still did well.
“He did very well for a fight without Nautilus, and I asked him to show off his skills,” he said. “But let’s just practice more.”
