Congratulations on the win!
It was a long and grueling match, especially game 2. How do you feel about the win?
Mata: I felt that we as a team was a little shaken after Rift Rivals, losing our first game after Rift Rivals. I’m glad to have gotten our momentum back.
Ucal, you outputted an insane amount of damage during Game 2. You may have seen the damage graph; you totaled 60K damage by yourself in total.
Ucal: It was a bit more than Deft-hyung, I am sure.
Your utilization of Tahm Kench is what KT really needs; controlling the aggression of the team.
Mata: We didn’t have control of the lane at Game 1, so it felt like I could not make that much difference. However, in Game 2 and Game 3 we had lane control so I could create some super-lays.
I have to talk about Baron fights; there was a moment in Game 2 where you started hitting Baron but had it stolen away. How was the team feeling at this moment?
Ucal: Even though we were hitting the Baron, our primary goal was to initiate the teamfight, which we were determined to win. I don’t think getting our Baron stolen was a huge issue.
Mata: I’m not saying that it wasn’t be an issue, but we won the teamfight, so I think in the end everything worked out.
After Rift Rivals, all the teams that attended it have seemed to have become “cautious”. Seems to think more during picks and bans and in teamfights. This seems to have resulted in KT staying focused in late game.
Ucal: I think the fact that we didn’t lose focus even during the late game really contributed to our victory.
Ucal, we’re curious. Yasuo is a risky champion, yet you only scored one death in the entire game. Even when a Yasuo plays well, it’s often that you get 2, 3 kills on U
Ucal: When you play Yasuo, you have to focus less on killing the enemies and more on getting hit less. Your primary focus should be not dying.
So don’t get carried away by the strength of Yasuo.
