Wraith on synergy with Ruler: “We didn’t work completely in sync, but the results are incredible compared to the time we spent practicing.”

 In the 2-0 victory over the ROX Tigers, Samsung Galaxy’s support Kwon “Wraith” Ji-Min drew attention from spectators with his play as Nami in the first set and as Soraka in the second,writes Daily eSports’ Lee Yun-Ji.

There were some concerns that Wraith might be able to play to his full potential after Samsung signed a new ADC (Park “Ruler” Jae-Hyuk), but Wraith dispelled any doubts in the win victory.

“Ruler is very good at getting into positions during trades and puts in a lot of good damage,”Wraith told Daily eSports in a 1-on-1 interview. “Although he still lacks the instinct to react to a wide variety of possible situations, but that is something he can fix with time. We didn’t work completely in sync, but the results are incredible compared to the time we spent practicing.”

Wraith also had to face a new support in the Tigers’ bottom lane (Cho “CoreJJ” Yeong-In) after their recent position switch up, but Wraith didn’t get shaken by his new opponent.

“The position switch didn’t come as a surprise to me,” he said. “He often played as a support in solo queue, and joked that he’s considering to switch his position. So when I heard he moved to support, I just went ‘OK.’”

He also commented that he was trying to be more vocal in games now, although it did lead to some “mistakes” in his play against the Tigers.

“I think I need to play well for us to make it to the postseason,” he said. “I think my plays will affect our games a great deal.”
