MVP head coach: “I’m very happy because this was the most dramatic victory since our performance at the promotional tournament to make it into the regular season.”

The MVP head coach said his team has plenty more surprise champion picks left for the playoffs.

MVP’s head coach seemed more than relieved after earning another win against KT Rolster.

After MVP’s dramatic 2-1 win on Wednesday, its second this season against KT, coach Kwon Jae-han shared his relief in an interview OSEN’s Ko Yong-jun while looking back at his team that is now in the running for second place in League Champions Korea.

“It was a tough series, enough to say that it was, in all reality, a 0-2 defeat for us,” he said. “I’m very happy because this was the most dramatic victory since our performance at the promotional tournament to make it into the regular season. I’m proud of the players, who didn’t give up and kept the team composition working.”

Game 2, which was a comeback victory, saw MVP play another unusual support pick. This time Jeong “Max” Jong-bin played Sion, and Kwon said it was all in the cards before the match started.

“We have been practicing Sion support beforehand, and we went for it for team fight synergy,” he said. “Although we did manage to make plays we were looking forward to, but the laning phase was very difficult, so we’ll need more time to experiment it.”

Now within reach of second place Samsung Galaxy, MVP is performing better than perhaps anyone thought to this point of the spring split. Kwon said that while the team aims to play its best “regardless of the standings,” he admitted that it was a positive since MVP “has a higher chance of making it to the playoffs.”
