▶ Director of DRX ‘Micro’ Kim Mok-kyung.
No matter when, the losing streak had to be broken. I think it was a very precious and desperate first win for us. It’s a bit of a stretch to say that I’m in a great mood as much as the 1st approval that was necessary for the atmosphere to change. I’m really glad though.
‘Deokdam’ Seo Dae-gil has a severely torn elbow. Seeing his elbow, he thought he needed to rest until he healed. I heard the diagnosis result yesterday, and they said it would be fine if I didn’t overdo it while playing the game.
So, he rushed into a scrim (practice match) yesterday, albeit briefly. If I lost in the first set, I came to the arena in a state that was supposed to play in the second set. All players do, but I didn’t want to lose today’s game either. During the remaining games, I never wanted to lose to a team in the East.
I also needed (a good comment), and the players desperately wanted to participate. I thought I would need him to win, so I boldly put in a ‘deokdam’. My body condition is not all better right now, and I have to keep it sealed for about two weeks.
Rather than just playing differently today, I felt that even before the 2nd round, the team’s performance had improved significantly, if not, it was definitely improving. However, from the start of the second round, meeting a relatively good top-ranked team, I met a bad news that lowered my confidence.
Still, when I met the Dongbu team, I thought I had reached a level where I could win with the performance I saw in scrims. In the second round, the team definitely improved a lot compared to before. The rest of the game is aimed at winning the East team, and it will be able to go up to a state where even the teams above it can win enough. 슬롯사이트
I will try to beat every team I can beat as much as possible. And I will prepare with the mindset that even the top teams will now win. For now, that seems to be the goal. The most important thing for us is to regain our confidence. It’s not that the playoffs are hopeless at all, but it’s actually a tough situation, so it’s most important to show fans a better performance before summer and to establish themselves to some extent so that they can really expect it once summer ends. I will prepare with the greatest focus on performance so that I can win all the remaining games as much as possible.
Player recruitment means using better players from scrims. It is true that Kim “Crocco” Dong-beom is good at scrims, but during matches, Lee “Korea” Lee is more calm and stable. It’s the same today, but the thing that ‘Korea’ players lack is always confident and wants to participate in a prepared state, but when they talked recently, they often said that they weren’t ready yet.
So, as long as it wasn’t for that part, I thought that it would be great if he played enough, so he talked a lot yesterday and mentioned that he could go to the second set. He said that it would be nice to have confidence, but the player also responded to that, so I think good results came out.
I think it is the most difficult moment for not only me but the entire team since debuting as a pro. I will recover my confidence through today’s game and do my best in the remaining games so that I can show good performance even for the fans.
