CuVee says jokingly to fans: “I think the future games might be less interesting because we’ll win a lot more easily.”

CuVee said Samsung Galaxy's games will get less interesting soon.
The more games Samsung Galaxy plays, the less interesting they'll be, according to CuVee (Lee Seong-jin).

Lee “CuVee” Seong-jin offered a confident closing comment with a broad smile across his face.

Samsung Galaxy took a hard fought 2-1 win against Longzhu Gaming in Wednesday’s League Champions Korea match. The games were extremely tight with a constant tug of war until Samsung was able to exploit holes in the opposition. After the match, CuVee was invited to the post-match interview with OGN casters Lee “CloudTemplar” Hyun-woo and Kim “Dangun” Ui-joong as the sole MVP of the match. With a smile and joking tone, he offered a preemptive apology to the fans.

“I think that it must have been a fun game to watch for the fans, even though it was hard for us,” he said. “I think the future games might be less interesting because we’ll win a lot more easily.”

Game 1 ended in Longzhu’s victory as Samsung’s mid laner Lee “Crown” Min-ho was beaten down the entire game and given no time to breathe. CuVee said the team “talked about how we could win in the late game and farm it out,” but failed to do so in the end.

CuVee also pulled out the unexpected Gnar pick in Game 2, where he clinched the MVP of Game 2 as he successfully back-doored Longzhu’s Nexus while the rest of the team was tying down Longzhu in a fight. In Game 3, his performance as Camille was sublime against Fiora, but CuVee didn’t claim whole credit.

“Bruiser fights usually come down to the jungler,” he said. “We ganked first, so I think it was evidence of that.”

CuVee wasn’t the only Samsung Galaxy player to give cheeky interview comments after Wednesday’s win, as Jo “CoreJJ” Yong-in playfully roasted CuVee in an interview with Daily eSports.

“CuVee does well in games where his lane works out,” he said.  “I think he’s good at everything but solo queue. He’s been climbing the ladder, but he was at his best (onstage) when he was in Master Tier, so I hope he drops some more and continues to do well in competitive games. I noticed his MVP points are higher than his solo queue rank points.”
