Bang and Wolf both live in the Najin Shield team and then reunite at SKT, Wolf says that Bang can be said to be his savior. When he leaves Najin Shield, he tells Bang that he wants to go to another team. Bang returns to himself. Say, "Don't do this, come with me to SKT!" He really thanked Bang for doing this to him.
Bang said that after leaving the Xenics Blast team, he felt that it was necessary to apply for T 1 SKT position. At that time, although there were many teams, SKT T1 was considered a very famous team. It is normal to try to see your role together. It's not like Auxiliary and AD will be tested separately. At that time, the road is usually taken in a combination of two people. Even though there was fierce competition at the time, he thought that he and Wolf should be good enough to be accepted, so he said to Wolf, "If we go to joint SKT, our lives will change completely." This is how they join SKT. And being a member of the S. Wolf team said that when they become professional players, they are already friends, and he is very happy they can work together again with SKT.
After remembering joining the T1 S SKT team, Bang said that when the S team and K team joined, the Kkoma coach told them to take advantage of every opportunity. When Wolf used Annie to perform well during the match, coach Kkoma said, "You finally did it, and claimed Wolf. Wolf said that he did not know how to play the game in his own way. He did not even know what to do to win the match. remember that Kkoma's coach asked himself "What are you doing?" This was the first time he had done it. A hard reaction, though difficult to bear, had made him gradually get better and use various ideas to watch the match. He really believed that Kkoma said, "I say this to make you play better." After realizing this, he began to use heroes like Alexa very well, and felt that he really improved. To this day, when new members enter the team, Kkoma coaches will encourage players to say "Don't worry. At that time, Wolf came like this at the beginning. "
Bang said that every time he thought about this, he felt that this was very important. He feels that players can get a lot of accurate instructions from the coach. Because the League of Legends has changed, it is necessary to always absorb feedback. To this day, he still remembers the feeling that they received valuable feedback for the first time.
When it came to the fact that SKT T1 was considered a world class team in 2015 and 2016, Bang said that he did not feel the pressure and burden in 2015. He said that many fans thought that their players would like the period because they played very well during that period and won many awards, but if he wanted to return to that period, he might choose not to return. It was very difficult at that time, when they achieved many achievements, how much effort was done behind them, Every action and CS gave him tremendous pressure, but because they invested so much, he knew that victory was theirs. Before the World Finals, they had dinner with the Kkoma coach. He said, "If we lose, that doesn't make sense. If we lose, we will leave us in the name of God." He believes they will win.
He said that when he entered 2016, he felt the pressure as a world class team. They must work hard to meet the expectations of SKT fans. They work very hard to achieve it. Some people praise their achievements, but they praise them. When Spring 2016's performance wasn't too good, they were criticized. He even wanted to say why someone cursed himself like this. On that day, he really began to feel the "shoulder load" that was said by professional players.
Wolf said that in 2015 they were sweating hard and there was not much experience in past victories, so they did not feel the pressure to be "world class" and felt that this year's results were the same as they were prepared. But in 2016 they worked as hard as they did in 2015. When they began to lose a few games, he asked himself, "Why is this?" "We are ready like last year. Does it make any difference? Why are you so fettered?" Because of that, they did their best and cried.
Bang said that actually, bad people are like many fans like good people, but at that time he was more vulnerable and only saw negative comments because he had never experienced such a situation at the time and felt like he was too early. He wore a crown, and he personally received psychological counseling in early 2016 and began to accept that he was not perfect. Maybe the fans consider him a perfect person, but he also wants to change the opinion of fans, he also believes being criticized or scolded is inevitable. Wolf said that he believed that the proportion of criticism was relatively small, but criticism was more likely to attract attention, and he tried to convince himself that "they say this because they like me, right?" He got a lot With the help of fans, although there were many negative comments on the Internet, no one sent him a letter containing hateful words. He tried to keep all the letters given by his fans. This content really helped him.
As for reviewing SKT's performance in 2017 and 2018 is not as good as expected, Bang said that he started thinking about horror after 2016. "If I continue to live like this, I will die." I even thought that I had to live like a machine for a long time. When he heard the schedule for mid-season tournament preparation in 2017, he felt his head would explode. He felt that the schedule was like hell, when they could rest, whether it was a machine or not, and then he started trying I asked the team for help. At that time, the team allowed them to rest. After that, they practiced less than the other teams. In retrospect, it might be "Is that not good?" At that time, the goal was not to win the game like a professional player, but wanted to rest, so he rested during the mid-season invitation period, and his performance began to decline. He began to understand that this was not the way he was, so he began to look for ways to focus, but despite his appearance had not yet recovered, he also received a lot of criticism, he too I did self reflection, even if he had no rest at that time, he would definitely rest, regardless of the consequences, he believes this is the deciding factor here.
Wolf said that one or two months in 2017 might be short-lived for fans, but it was impossible for them to estimate. During that time, other players worked hard and it was difficult to catch up. Now look back. They can't perform as well as they usually do, because other players have done a lot of practice during this relaxation period. As a professional player, the motto is "Don't do anything that will regret", but if you remember it, One of the most regrettable moments.
Bang said that at that time there were many teams to make progress, and to practice like the KesPA Cup, they participated in the mid-season, world competition, KesPA and other competitions, almost no time to rest, they had the longest rest a year. Maybe the third day or four days of the Autumn Festival (Mid-Autumn Festival in South Korea).
Wolf said that they really did not have time to rest, and were out of season, even if there were no games to prepare, they still had to keep practicing. There are only three days in the fall and the KesPA Cup after world competition. Even though the team will say "Your world competition is very good, rest" but then you will say "Do you think we should at least play some practice games?" This really makes him want to be cut off rationally.
Bang said that during that time their laziness was because they lacked professionalism, He would never allow this to happen again, Title professional players are very heavy, it is wrong to have a professional degree and be treated humanely. . What he wanted to say was that he did not work well because he did not work hard and he was not professional. It is normal for someone to feel tired when facing difficulties, and he is too obedient to his own humanity, and he cannot blame others.
For the future, Bang says that the working conditions of professional players are getting better, which is very attractive to most people, which is very suitable for him, so he will remain a professional player for a long time, and will continue to improve his skills, focus on performance and share with fans. Wolf said that the process was very difficult as mentioned above. He said to himself that he would not do it again, he would stop, but then he continued to sign it, and this time he really left the SK1 T1 to start again, but he will continue As a professional player, he likes to enter new environments, even though he's a little scared, he's ready for the next adventure.
In interviews, the two were also asked about the place where they believed that the other party had changed the most in the past five years. Laughter laughed and said that it should be a burden to Bang. people tell him. Bang lost weight, what are you doing? This gave him some pressure, and he believed that both of them had increased their weight. Bang said that he felt that Wolf was a feeling of "growing", and that his appearance, knowledge, language, etc. Has been stable and mature for years.
Wolf was also very grateful to Bengi for his guidance on how to practice as a wild player, even for playing games, and with Bengi, and he also thanked CCarter and Kkoma coaches, and Bang thanked all SKT for helping him improve. Team member, he felt that he could not give back to all the old teammates who helped him when he needed help. He also thanked the team for doing their best to look after the players. "SKT is really great," he thanked everyone, with SKT. The time when his teammates and fans were very valuable to him.
If the two meet in the future, Bang laughs and says that if he meets Wolf in court, he will drop the Wolf. As a professional player, he met many very good people. "You are very good. I hope you will take care of this situation, but when I meet on the field, I will drop you." Wolf said that it was fun to meet each other in Solo Q, on stage … He knew Bang hated something, so it would be nice to make Bang sick.
