The rookie who won first place for the first time can’t end the league here
Kwangdong Freaks rookie “Bulldog” Lee Tae-young experienced the moment when his team rose to the top of the “LoL Champions Korea (LCK)” ranking table for the first time in his life on the 10th. “I want to end the league here,” he said with a big smile, after finishing the first week with 2 wins and 0 losses (+4) over OK savings bank Brion.
Kwang-dong beat OK Savings Bank 2-0 in the first week of the regular league game of the 2023 LCK Summer Season at LCK Arena in Jongno-gu, Seoul. Following the first game of the season against DRX on the 8th, he became the only team to record another complete victory and an absence set in the first week. He finished the first week as the sole leader, beating Kia (2 wins, 0 losses, +3).
The air at the top was clear and sweet for the first time. Lee Tae-young, who met with the Kookmin Ilbo after the game, said, “I won first place in LCK for the first time in my life. I feel really good,” he said with a bright smile. “We prepared for this season by doing night scrimmage without holidays,” he added. “I feel rewarded for my efforts,” he added. 스포츠토토
While the spring season focused on improving basic skills, Kwang-dong is now honing his team play with a little more difficulty. Kwang-dong scored in the match against DRX and OK Savings Bank through a management fight, not a slugfest. DRX and OK Savings Bank are meaningful because they are teams with veterans who are strong in operation. The kill score in the first set was 8-2, and the second set was 10-5.
Lee Tae-young was even pleasantly shocked when the team won a complete victory without winning a number of kills. The fierce dog realized that he could overpower the opponent without necessarily biting. He said, “I thought ‘the game was fun’ even though there was no kill. “I pushed in the line and looked for what I had to do, and I was able to win a clean victory,” he said. “It’s been a long time since I felt this feeling.”
OK Savings Bank is the opponent who dedicated points to Kwangdong in both the first and second rounds of the regular league in the spring season. So he prepared for the game by grinding his teeth. Lee Tae-young said, “I was a little nervous before the game because I’ve never won,” adding, “I’ve gained confidence from that because my recent scrim performance was good.”
Will Guangdong’s momentum continue until next week. Kwangdong will face Gen.G and Hanwha Life e-sports, which are considered stronger opponents in the second week. Lee Tae-young said, “It doesn’t matter who the opponent is. “It’s important to carry out the play we promised,” he said. “I think the next opponents can win enough,” expressing confidence
