Spirit on Afreeca’s bot lane: “They had a very good performance and pointed out that real evaluation should be that the problem was with Spirit.”

MaRin injured his hand while riding a bicycle and said he's "taking solo queue slowly" while recovering.
The Afreeca Freecs top laner MaRin (Jang Gyeong-hwan) injured his hand while riding a bicycle and said he's "taking solo queue slowly" while recovering.

After the Afreeca Freecs took down Samsung Galaxy 2-1 in Thursday’s League Champions Korea game, Afreeca’s jungler Lee “Spirit” Da-yun tried to dispel some of the concerns fans had about their bot lane, and directed the finger of blame to himself in a post-match interview with OGN casters Lee “CloudTemplar” Hyun-woo and Kim Dong-jun.

“We think our bot lane really proved themselves,” he said. “Regardless of the evaluations that say that they’re lacking in some aspects, they had a very good performance and pointed out that real evaluation should be that the problem was with Spirit. I can say that now laughing, but I’m going to go back and watch the game again and go through some feedback in order to improve.”

Spirit proved to be a barrel of laughs during the entire interview, as he was invited to the interview with top laner Jang “MaRin” Gyeong-hwan, Spirit apologized to MaRin, as he showed a rather lackluster performance as Rek’Sai in Game 2, which Samsung won.

“Before I say anything else, I was so sorry to MaRin in Game 2 because I should have been there for him,” he said. “I’m very sorry. I will go top lane next time.”

Spirit showed a powerful performance as Olaf in Games 1 and 3, and he said that it was more confidence in the champion than the strength of the champion himself.

“I personally don’t think Olaf is good,” he said. “But the decision the team made at the end of scrims was that we should play things we’re confident in.

“I get kind of crazy when I play Olaf, so I think the best champion to showcase my skills would be with him,” he said, before jokingly adding, “you know what happened with Rek’Sai.”
