SK Telecom T1’s League of Legends head coach Choi “cCarter” Byung-hoon reflected Wednesday on a successful spring split.
With SKT’s victory over the ROX Tigers on Wednesday, SKT clinched a first place finish in the regular season and, by rule, a spot in the League Champions Korea spring final. After the match, cCarter talked about SKT’s split so far and the team’s hiccups in an interview with OSEN’s Ko Yong-jun.
“We didn’t have any major obstacles,” he said. “However, I think the patch change in the middle of the season and our drop in performance did act like an obstacle. Our impatience to make it to the finals was also an obstacle of sorts. The entire team worked hard, and I want to thank the fans.”
SKT finished the split 15-2, with 30 game wins to only 10 losses. Although SKT has never performed very poorly during the spring split of previous seasons, cCarter pointed out in the interview that they “haven’t ever had that much success in the beginning of the regular spring split,” and thanked the players as well as the coach, Kim “kkOma” Jung-gyun.
