‘Owner’ ahead of DK match, “Prefer blue? Opponent only chose red”

T1 captured Guangdong Freecs in the 2nd game on the 7th day of the ‘2023 LoL Champions Korea (LCK)’ Spring Split held at Jonggak Roll Park on the 26th and won 3 consecutive victories. The ban-pick that caught the opponent off guard and the in-game play that perfectly connected it to victory showed exactly why T1 was called the championship candidate.

The following is the full text of the interview with ‘Bengi’ director Seong-Woong Bae and ‘Owner’ Hyun-Jun Moon.

Q. With the win over Guangdong, you have continued your winning streak. How do you feel about winning?

Coach Bae Seong-woong: Today is the third match, and I saw it as a very important point in gaining momentum. I think it helped a lot in preparing for the next game.

‘Owner’: I watched a lot of Guangdong replays, but I thought ‘Youngjae’ was a good player, so I was wary. I think this result came about thanks to watching a lot of replays. It feels good to win cleanly with a score of 2:0.

Q. You brought out a variety of champions, but I want to hear about your ban/pick direction.

Director Bae Seong-woong: Actually, in the first set, it was easy to choose because it was the blue camp. I practiced for the second set, and the results came out well, so I think I came out in a good way (even in the competition).

Q. The match ended in the 50th minute with the 1st and 2nd sets combined.

Coach Bae Seong-woong: Actually, I prepared a lot of Caitlyn-centered combinations since the last World Championship, but it didn’t work out, so I couldn’t show it. I came to the LCK this time and I did what I practiced before as Caitlyn was released, but it came out well and I think the game ended with a sense of speed.

Q. It’s not an easy meta to dive in, but T1 snowballs really well with dives. How did you prepare for today’s match?

‘Owner’: I think there is a limit if you keep doing the same thing. A mid-set or Caitlyn support came out to break through that limit. Also, we prepared picks that could put pressure on the bottom to dive, and it worked out well, so I think we went on a lot of dives.

Q. The next opponent is Dplus Kia. It’s a showdown between undefeated teams.

Coach Seong-Woong Bae: I know that D+Kia has good momentum, but we are thinking of D+Kia and preparing for it, so I don’t think it will be an easy game. No worries in that respect.

‘Owner’: D+ Kia said in an interview that they preferred blue after seeing us, but we ended up playing blue because our opponent chose red a lot. We’re good at both blue and red. In the case of D+Kia, they seem to prefer Lucian-Nami.

Q. Where do you think the winner will be?

Director Bae Seong-woong: D+ Kia plays Lucian-Nami a lot, but I haven’t seen any other combinations yet. I think there must be something prepared. First of all, I think you will know by watching the game.

‘Owner’: I think the most important thing in the current meta is the jungle-bottom, so I think the match will be the jungle-bottom. It seems that a well-designed ban pick can lead to good results.

Q. If you prefer Deplus Giara Lucian-Nami, T1 seems to prefer AD supporters.

‘Owner’: In the case of ‘Keria’ Min-seok, the champion pool is very wide. He’s a friend who has done AD a lot, so he’s good at dealing with AD champions. The practice yielded good results. Because of that, I gained trust, and it seems that one-handed supporters keep coming out.

Q. The current momentum of T1 reminds me of last year’s spring.

‘Owner’: I don’t even think of last year’s spring, but anyway, good results are coming out, so my desire to win is growing. I hope it’s a spring where you can learn even if you don’t win, and it seems to be moving in that direction.

Q. Any last words you want to say?

Coach Bae Seong-woong: The team that wins the match against D-Plus Kia will rise to first place. It’s an important game to do well in the spring and build confidence. I will prepare well to win in order to gain momentum.

‘Owner’: I don’t think there is much data because Dplus Kia continues to win in the same pattern. If I get data and get good results, I think I’ll win first place and gain a lot of confidence. We will prepare well and try to win. 메이저놀이터
