AF beat HLE 2-1 in the LCK Summer Match on August 16, increasing the chance of entering the playoffs. According to the result of the game between GEN. G and DWG, it will be different.
AF supervisors were interviewed after the game.
Q: What is the feeling of winning?
AF Supervisor: Since entering the summer tournament, our goal is to win and lose no matter which team we play with. But every game has to go all out. Now it seems that we have achieved our goal to some extent, so we are satisfied. It’s a pity that time has passed so fast.
Q: What is the reason for success today?
AF Supervisor: The first set was found by the opponent, which has often happened recently. The players were encouraged after the game, and they worked hard for the next game. I was relaxed in the second inning, but my opponents played well in the early stages, which made me a little confused. Fortunately, it has the advantage of Fire Dragon, and the voice players in the team have a good mentality, they are encouraging each other. I think it’s a good springboard.
Q: Are there any players who want to be praised in particular?
AF Supervisor: All five players are doing very well. Senan’s Rank scores have dropped recently. They’re all on my level. They often laugh at him. But he seems to be a competitive player, and he’ll look forward to his performance more later.
Q: The regular season team is 11-7. According to the results of the remaining games, whether they can enter the playoffs will change.
AF Supervision: Failure to enter the playoffs on its own is the biggest regret. SKT and GEN. G are both terrible teams. The style of the team is a little restrained. The players all respect SKT, so SKT is more terrible. When I heard the players say that, I told them that if they lost the match with GEN. G, they would not be able to participate in the selection. But if SKT comes up, we can go to the trials. I said these words carefully, wondering if I could make them relax a little. Of course, the best thing is to win.
Q: What needs to be improved in the future?
AF supervision: In order to improve the completeness of group warfare, in order not to carry out some meaningless and strange group warfare, the team members need to have enough experience to backup. We can’t create time, so we keep telling the players not to worry and keep telling them that you are a strong team. Today’s third game started with the style I wanted to see. I was really happy. It’s really nice to see that the players have been making progress. In case we can’t walk together next year, I also believe that the athletes trained by me will do well.
Q: Which is the most impressive victory or defeat since the summer match?
AF Supervision: The most unfortunate thing is the second round of the game with SB. In the third round, the Dread player finally said aloud: How could that be? The most unforgettable victory was the second round win over DWG. We had never won them before, so we were satisfied to win.
Q: As a leader before, this is your first time as a coach. What does 2019 mean to you?
AF Supervisor: After joining the team, I learned a lot from the coach at that time. I learned everything I couldn’t do one by one. For me, this is a turning point in the long life of leadership and a great asset.
