SKT Bang: “If we put last split as our ‘best condition’ as a team, then we haven’t reached that point yet.”

SKT Bang says SK Telecom T1's League of Legends team hasn't reached its peak in the summer split, and that's OK.

Bae “Bang” Jun-sik, AD Carry for SK Telecom T1, said SKT hasn’t quite reached its peak from the League Champions Korea spring split, but that’s OK.

SKT defeated MVP 2-0 Wednesday with a 2-0, but the games weren’t as one-sided as some fans of SKT might have expected. After the match, Bang discussed his team’s form compared to the spring split in a video interview with Fomos.

“We had ups and downs during the spring too,” he said. “If we put last split as our ‘best condition’ as a team, then we haven’t reached that point yet.”

Pressed further about when he thinks the last time the team was in its “best condition,” Bang couldn’t come up with a clear answer. He instead offered a definition of what being in the best shape means to him, which is when he doesn’t “make a single mistake, let it be not dying, lane management, or decision making.”

A conversation topic for all of SKT this week has been the release of the players’ skins for winning the League of Legends World Championship last year. Bang explained why he chose Jhin for his as the final candidate in a pool of two other potential choices.

“When we played at worlds, I really liked Jhin,” he said. “After worlds, I was considering Ashe, Jhin, or Ezreal, but Ezreal and Ashe already have a lot of good skins, so I went for Jhin, who I had a lot of fun with.”

Bang also said that he was rather fond of the Syndra and Ekko skin, and said that he found the ward skin designed to look like the coach Kim “kkOma” Jung-gyun to be very likable.
