Smeb: “Since everyone on the team plays well, (making shot calls) was difficult earlier on.”

KT Rolster AD Carry Kim “Deft” Hyuk-kyu said the team had serious conversations about getting on the same page in a post match interview Saturday with OGN casters Lee “CloudTemplar” Hyun-woo and Kim Dong-jun.

“At first when we scrimmed, we were all full of confidence in ourselves, so we kept looking to make kills in our own lanes, which made the game feel more like a solo queue game than a team game,” he said. “After we kind of argued with one another because of that, I think the team fell into place.”

Top laner Song “Smeb” Kyung-ho echoed Deft’s sentiment and went more into detail in what the team has to do.

“Since everyone on the team plays well, (making shot calls) was difficult earlier on,” he said. “Calls would be made on top of one another since everyone wanted to say what they wanted to say. Now we divided parts with everyone in charge of their own parts.”

Following up on a previous interview in which he said he wanted to have a “perfect win” over his opponents, Deft said they were close to it this time around.

With some fans in Korea saying that Go “Score” Dong-bin has been able to cruise to wins thanks to KT’s new super lineup, Deft was quick to say that the ease of victory was a two-way street.

“The team atmosphere is good, and even though it seems Score is playing easy games, he’s also very good at what he does, which makes all of us play easy games,” he said.
