AFR Kramer: “We scrimmed a lot with SKT, and I think we have a good chance to make something happen.”

Kramer says he thinks the Afreeca Freecs have a chance against SKT.
Kramer says he thinks the Afreeca Freecs have a chance against SKT.

Although the Afreeca Freecs face off against the best League of Legends team in the world in their next match, AD Carry Ha “Kramer” Jong-Hoon says his team still has a chance.

The Afreeca Freecs defeated the ROX Tigers 2-1 in Thursday’s League Champions Korea match, and Kramer told told Inven’s Shim Young-bo he thinks Afreeca has a decent shot against SK Telecom T1, a match that will take place Sunday.

“We scrimmed a lot with SKT, and I think we have a good chance to make something happen,” he said. “I think the result will be a 2-1 win or loss. I think the team that makes fewer mistakes will win, and I think SKT is the team that makes the least amount of mistakes.”

Afreeca’s win against ROX wasn’t a simple one, as it came to a full series. In fact, a full three-game series is a trend for Afreeca, as all of their matches have gone down to the wire. Kramer attributed the trend to his team’s “inability to close out games,” and confessed it causes some fatigue.

The Freecs had interesting drafts Thursday, as they left Zac — a heavily banned pick in the current competitive patch — ubnanned throughout the match and even left Galio open in Game 2. There was an apparent game plan, but the result wasn’t exactly what Afreeca hoped.

“Zac-Galio is a very good pick for team fights, but they’re weak in the early game,” Kramer said. “We wanted to exploit that weakness with strong laning choices. We tried to block out the team fight synergy with early game advantages, but we got dove a lot, which changed things. I did honestly think ‘that’s kind of weird’ after Game 2’s draft.”
