The head coach of SK Telecom T1 had high praise for the Flash Wolves, the League of Legends Masters Series representative of the Mid-Season Invitational.
Before SKT left for Brazil to compete in MSI, the players and head coach engaged in a number of interviews with the Korean press. Daily eSports’ Nam Yoon-sung compiled responses about which team might be a rival to SKT’s second MSI trophy, and head coach Choi “cCarter” Byung-hoon compared one of the MSI teams to the level of his home region.
“Team SoloMid and Flash Wolves have shown strong performances as they have made it to Round 2, and the Gigabyte Marines have shown a very entertaining full series match against Team SoloMid,” he said. “The Flash Wolves are the closest (in MSI) to the play level of LCK teams.”
cCarter continued to say that many teams will be “looking out for us” seeing as this is his team’s third trip to MSI, and especially since they won the previous one. This is following a previous interview with Lee “Faker” Sang-hyeok where he also said that Flash Wolves looked like a “strong competitor” for MSI.
The Flash Wolves defeated Turkey’s representative, SuperMassive, on Thursday and will play Team WE from China on Wednesday in its first group stage match of MSI.
