The following is an interview with foreign media FOMOS after IG.
Q: How do you feel about winning the last championship after defeating KT, your old club, in the game of S8?
Mafa: It’s a very difficult step until now. At first, I just wanted to play with the best team and the best players. I didn’t think I would have such a wonderful day. I think I’m a lucky man.
Q: many times in the competition, you rush into the 1V4 and 1V5 scenes by yourself.
TheShy: As long as it’s the kind of situation where we can play well and win, I’ll play more freely. We all played better in the game, so I played very aggressively.
Q: what is your focus on guiding the team after joining IG?
Coach Jin Jingsu: IG players themselves have strong personal strength, but there are still some shortcomings in the operational level, so I put the operation as the focus to do a lot of pointing. After the improvement in the operational level, the individual strength of the players has also improved.
Q: You did very well in the face of Broxah’s master hero, the blind monk, and you got the MVP for the final. How did you prepare for the game?
Ning: First of all, I know that his blind monks play very well, but I did not make a separate analysis of him. Seeing him choose the blind monks first, I chose the heroes who are better at beating the blind monks. Overall, I played better in these three games.
Q: you seem to have some different styles in the semifinal and finals.
Baolan: I didn’t change consciously. I just played very unstable in the semi-finals and got caught many times. Today I just hope to play more steadily.
Q: You’ve always been compared with Faker. You said you respect Faker very much. Now you’re the best middle way in the world in 2018. What do you want to say to Faker?
Rookie: Thank you very much for saying that I am the best midway in the world, but I think I still have a long way to go to catch up with Faker. I don’t think I can compare with Faker at present. Although I won the championship, I still haven’t shown the most perfect side, so I am the best in the world. I still need to be cautious. I hope to tell Faker that I will always watch his games and Rank, and I hope to see his handsome operation in the future.
Q: in the face of important competitions before, there are always psychological problems. How did you overcome them today?
Jackey Love: We won the first round of the group game, we neglected the preparation in the second round, and we lost two games and then we were frustrated. Then we worked hard with the players to prepare for the next game.
Q: you shed tears after winning the championship. What does this tear mean?
Rookie: I’ve been playing as a professional player for many years. I haven’t had any chance to show up and I haven’t been able to get on this stage. The instant I win the championship is very complicated. In the past few years, I’ve cried twice in the professional arena. I cried after losing the game. This time, I did. Release the tension and pressure and cry.
Q: One of the key points in the final version of the S8 World Championship is the individual strength of the midway players. Who is the most difficult player to play in this competition? Besides, who are the most eager players to face in the future?
Rookie: I have been working very hard and I am very lucky to keep pace with the version. There are no players that I find difficult to play in the final of the 8th world championship. The former Caps player is worth looking forward to, but in today’s competition, it seems that he did not play his full strength, which is a pity. I hope to meet Faker on the big stage in the future. Faker’s ability in the world competition is amazing. I think he is very great.
Q: is there anyone in the world who can be your opponent?
TheShy: I’ve thought a lot about this, but I still feel that no one in the world is my opponent on the line.
Q: as a coach of IG, what are your next goals?
Mafa: This is not the end. I will take this championship as a new beginning and keep good results.
Coach Jin Jingsu: Whenever our goal is to win the championship, we hope to win the LPL League next season.
