▶GenG eSports ‘Score’ coach Dong-bin Koh
“It’s a sweaty victory today, but it’s good to win and keep first place. I thought it was a big hurdle, but I think it’s fortunate that I passed it well. I’m in contact with coach Sang-wook Ryu of ‘Ryu’ often. I didn’t want to lose, but I won because the players did well today. I’m happy to be able to tease you.
In fact, I have that mindset that this spring season can always be difficult. I lost one game and won two games, but I talked well so that I could play the game without being shaken. As a result of watching the match after losing the first set, I thought that it might be difficult to follow the same composition, and considering the fact that the opponent seemed to have good concentration during the teamfight, I made it into a composition that would be comfortable during the teamfight. It wasn’t easy to get there. I think the players did well in the game and won. 메이저사이트
In the case of ‘Phase’ Soo-hwan Kim, who received POG again, he originally had a wider range of champions when he was first called up than in other parts, but he was a champion that could be used in the tournament. I was increasing the width, and now I can digest a variety of distance dealers than then.
In future matches, I think it is important to maintain our internal performance as our team is currently in the stage of continuous improvement. In fact, to be number one, you have to do well in all areas. If we simply become better in every part than we are now, then I think it’s worth aiming for first place.
While winning consecutively, I was able to rise to first place alone, albeit briefly, but the players are doing well thanks to the fans who always support them. As much as the players are doing well, the manager and coaches will work hard to make a team that goes to the finals this season as well.”
