T1 superstar mid laner Lee "Faker" Sang-hyeok shared his thoughts before the upcoming LCK 2022 Summer grand final against Gen.G. He thinks the competition is comparable to Worlds and expressed the desire to win his 11th domestic title. The interview was published by Invenglobal.
In comparison to the Spring split, there’s been a lot of turbulence this split. We did lose a few matches, and I feel that we didn’t perform that great as well. However, I made it this far, and I’ll make sure to finish this split with the championship victory.
In comparison to the Spring split, I believe Gen.G’s teamwork has gotten much better. I expect a tough series, so I predict that we’ll win 3-1 or 3-2.
While we didn’t play as well as we’d like to during the regular split, I believe the Summer finals are just as important as Worlds, so I really hope that we win. I’ve rarely been to Gangwon-do, and I think it’ll be neat to play the finals in a new region. I hope to enjoy the cleaner air in Gangneung.
I think the biggest thing is the turret bug fix. Also, the drakes are a lot tankier, and the Rift Herald gives more gold, so I think those changes to the objectives can create a variance.
Whenever I stream, I play a game that the fans like. After I win the finals, I’ll choose a game that chat likes and try to beat it on stream.
LCK Summer Split is coming to an end. In the playoffs semi-final, T1 defeated DWG KIA in a full bo5 series and will face Gen.G on August 27. Both guaranteed themselves a place in the group stage of Worlds 2022. Two more teams will qualify through the LCK Regional Finals.
