KT Rolster coach Choi Seung-min regretted that he was reversed in the ‘Telecommunications Agency Battle’ due to his failure to maintain concentration.
KT lost 2 to 3 to T1 in the second round of the 2023 LoL Champions Korea (LCK) spring season playoff held at the LCK Arena in Jongno-gu, Seoul on the 25th. After a great match that lasted for over 50 minutes, they gave up the last set and headed to the loser’s group.
KT took a big lead in the beginning of the 5th set, but couldn’t stay calm and got turned around. Coach Choi, who came to the press room after the game, said, “It’s futile.” He added, “(Players) concentration was good in the beginning, but in the second half, when the situation became advantageous, concentration fell.”
As the turning point of the 5th set, he picked the first Baron Nasher battle. Coach Choi said, “It was a gap that could be won if you looked at the fight while forking slowly, without rushing. The inflection point came because the players could not control their excitement and were swept away.”
He also said, “In the later scenes, both we and the opponent made mistakes. However, it was regrettable that I was sucked in by the other person.”
Regarding the evaluation that the blue side pick was good, Coach Choi said, “In fact, I think that the problems caused by accidents in the beginning or lack of concentration in the 5th set were bigger than the ban pick problem in all five sets.” I think I lost because I did well.”
Coach Choi said, “It’s good because if you win, you gain momentum and gain confidence. I said in a pre-interview that it is good to have something to gain from defeat,” he said. “The most important issue came out today. It is necessary to go to a place where the ability to maintain concentration when winning and the ability to finish the game is high.”
Heading to the loser’s group, KT will face off against the losing team of the Gen.G vs. Hanwha Life Esports match on the 26th for the ‘last coin’. Coach Choi said, “It’s too bad that we lost the game we should have won,” and promised, “I’ll make up for it so that it doesn’t appear like this in future games, and I’ll do my best in the next game.” 메이저사이트
