SK Telecom T1 support Lee “Wolf” Jae-wan shared his thoughts about the current bottom lane meta in an interview with Fomos’ Park Sang-jin.
“Rather than saying the AD Carries are weak, the supports are strong,” he said after Tuesday’s League Champions Korea win against the ROX Tigers. “It’s because damage dealers can be played as supports. I checked the damage dealt just in case after game two, and I was a little behind the player who dealt the most damage.”
He went as far to say that he’s quite happy with the new trend of the AD Carry/support dynamic, and showed a great deal of confidence.
“It’s something I’m good at and like to play,” he said. “Those types of champions also can give the snowball to their opponents if they’re not played correctly in lane, so it makes me a little nervous. I thought that I can do it best, and that I could cover that much ground.”
On the topic of SKT foregoing one ban each in the two games Tuesday against the Tigers. Wolf said that it wasn’t a strategic choice.
“I think there’s a problem with the new client,” he said. “But I think that it was OK because we had enough bans, and no one in the booth cared. But the news of the stoppage came to us late, so it was slightly disappointing. I hope updates come to us sooner.”
Wolf showcased an open-minded approach to Heo “Huni” Seung-hoon’s potential oddball picks in the top lane and said that results are all that matter.
“I think no matter who you pick, it’s OK if you win lane,” he said. “If the results are good, then it’s possible.”
Despite the return of a veteran support player Cho “Mata” Se-hyeong to the LCK, Wolf certainly didn’t mince words as he asserted his dominance in the bottom lane.
“It’s the same as always,” he said. “No matter what player I face, I think I can take them on because I am the best.”
