What’s a talent or hobby you have that not many people know about?
I don’t think I’m very talented at much besides playing League to that level. But recently in the off-season, I liked to cook. Started cooking a lot more. I would say at the start, I was really bad at cooking, and now I’m maybe average in the kitchen.
If you could one-trick a champion in your role, and never play anything else, which champion would it be, and why?
In my role, I think any champ might get stale, if you play only that champ. So maybe it would be Viego, so I could play every champ.
Congratulations on your win. How liberating was this win for you, and the team, seeing as you bested 100 Thieves, one of the best teams so far in the LCS?
Yeah, this was a really huge win for us as a team. We were all feeling the big, big, big pressure of having a bad spring split. Then we came into summer, and we wanted to start off really hot, we started practising super early. We came into the first couple weeks, and we were having a lot of problems, losing a lot of matches, so I think this is really big for us, to not only get a win but to have some positive energy, have some momentum, especially because we were able to execute that strategy so cleanly in the game.
We’ve seen the team select Vi as the jungler. We already heard it from Broxah about his rationale, but can I hear your perspective as to what led to the pick?
It was our coach, Galen, who came up with the idea that we should try it out. And that was the reason we tried it out in the first place. It was working decently, and we thought it could be a pretty solid strategy heading into this match against 100 Thieves. It worked out almost flawlessly. The game went so well, we got double crab for our Vi, every engage was working, and the enemy team wasn’t able to have a single moment in the game to breathe and catch up. So props to him for coming up with that.
The team has struggled to close out games throughout this year. How big of a morale boost does this give to the team, since you guys closed out the game convincingly as well.
It’s really big for our team. I mean, we were able to take down 100 Thieves in that sort of, really dominating fashion. And they are definitely one of the top teams in the league right now, so I feel like this is definitely gonna give us the confidence that we can play like that against any team when we’re playing our best. We definitely need to keep it up for the rest of our matches in the weekend, and in the future because there’s a long way to go.
I think for us, the most important thing is securing the playoffs spot of course. And then from there, I think it’s the big equalizer where even if you didn’t really do well throughout the season, you can still make up for it in the Best of 5 series which are much much different than the Best of 1. And I think that’s where we can really shine.
