“Victory means a lot. The key was high concentration.”
It was a great match worthy of a clash between the champion candidates ‘2nd round’. Although T1 was on the defensive, they tasted the thrilling come-from-behind victory and eventually laughed. With this, T1 was the first to step on the hill of 4 consecutive wins and climbed to the ‘exclusive 1st place’. T1 head coach Seong-Woong Bae “Bengi” showed great satisfaction in winning the match against D+ Kia.
T1 defeated Dplus Kia by a set score of 2-1 in the Saturday Showdown, the first special match of the ‘2023 LoL Champions Korea (LCK)’ spring split held at LoL Park in Jongno-gu, Seoul on the 28th.
Coach Bae, who we met after the game, said, “I was worried a lot because I thought Dplus Kia was a good opponent. I lost the first game unfortunately, but it feels good to win the rest and finish with a victory. It was a game that I could have won,” he looked back at the game. 안전놀이터
In particular, he focused on winning the match against Dplus Kia. It means that it was a valuable victory as it was counted as the ‘2nd round’ before the opening of the season and formed a rivalry. The key to victory was the ‘high concentration’ of the players. Director Bae said, “Dplus Kia had no set losses and the atmosphere was good. It means defeating a team with good momentum and winning,” he said. “It wasn’t strange whoever won. He emphasized that he improved his performance by increasing his concentration in the game.”
However, he also shared some regrets in the match. In the first set, the players pinched the play in a hurry as the baron was taken away. Coach Bae said, “The thing I lacked was that I was hit by Baron Steele in the first set. Details such as marking points and speed did not come out well. I think we played hastily,” he said. He continued, “In order to have a high average peak, we need to fix that kind of play. It is a part that needs to be resolved in order to go to a higher level before a big game,” he added.
Lastly, the remaining homework for T1, who defeated both D-Plus Kia and Gen.G, which are called strong teams, is Hanwha Life Insurance. Coach Bae also picked it as the most vigilant team among the remaining teams. He said, “Among the remaining teams, Hanwha Life Insurance is the most vigilant.”
