Mata: “I want to win trophies of every tournament.”

Riot Games announced on Tuesday that this year's League of Legends All-Star event will be held in the North American League of Legends Championship Series studio in Los Angeles from Dec. 7-10.

KT Rolster’s support Cho “Mata” Se-hyeong shared his ambitions for the coming 2017 season as the spring split of League Champions Korea nears in an interview with Daily eSports’ Lee Yun-ji. When asked what he goal was for the season, he simply said, “To win, win, win.”

“I want to win trophies of every tournament,” he said.

Mata will be making his return to the LCK after two years since his departure to China. He said that the feeling of the competition has changed drastically.

“When I was playing (in League Champions Korea) it felt like the tournament decided the champion. Now it feels like the champions are facing one another.”

The new KT roster looks like it’s geared to give what Mata wants, as he said that he’s been building his confidence with his lane partner, Kim “Deft” Hyuk-kyu.

“(Deft) likes to duo queue, so I’ve been working with him with a sense of responsibility,” he said. “With a little bit more teamwork, we’ll do better than the other teams.”

The thought on many of the fans’ minds is of course how this new roster will fare against the three-time world champion SK Telecom T1. Mata has still reserved his judgement against that particular opponent.

“There is still a lot of time before our game against SK Telecom, but we won’t slack off and keep working hard,” he said. “I think the bottom lane will go to whoever is able to play their role in the game well.”
