On July 25, GRF defeated KT 2-0 in the LCK Summer Competition. Viper, AD player of GRF team, was interviewed after the game.
Q: How do you feel about the victory in today’s competition?
Viper: Although we lost three games in a row before, I think we can do better and I did my best in this game. I’m glad we won today.
Q: What is the focus of the team during the successive defeats?
Viper: We talked about a lot of things, but we mainly emphasized that if we can do the same as before, correct our mistakes and do the best of everything, we can win.
Q: Version 9.14 can be said to be a hot potato. What do you think is the biggest version change?
Viper: There are a lot of BUGs. (Laughter) Silas is getting stronger again. He’s now enough to get a foothold on Carry’s single line. His shield became a magic shield, so he became more unique. Other heroes have also changed. Previously very strong heroes were weakened. I think there are many changes in this version, and we need to spend more time exploring it. I don’t know what will happen in this version of the game. I feel that this version adds a lot of new things.
Q: Do you think there are any changes to the next route?
Viper: Not a lot, but the auxiliary bit has changed a lot. So the next ADC will also suffer.
Q: Let’s recall that the Alliance of Heroes has gone through many versions so far. Which version is your favorite?
Viper: I like the enhanced version of Casa. It would be nice to see him back now. He is a hero with obvious advantages and disadvantages; if he is called back, it will certainly bring a lot of fun.
Q: Usually in version updates, the intentions of fist companies are very obvious. For example, they encourage players to play more small-scale group warfare and enhance ADC. What do you think of this change?
Viper: Regardless of the external evaluation, these changes are the reason why the game of the League of Heroes can last forever. If there weren’t so many changes, the players would lose interest. Try something new to get the game in the right direction. Although sometimes some versions are not so positive. It is very important to change the nature of this matter.
Q: What do you think of Doran? He took the place of your captain Sword today.
Viper: His technology is undoubtedly very good. But he still has a lot to learn, he can do well, and I believe he will do well.
Q: Finally, do you have anything to say to your fans?
Viper: We did lose a lot of games, we had a lot of feedback and made a lot of improvements during that time, so we were able to win the game. In the remaining games, we will return to our best level and give back to you at the peak level.
