“I entered too quickly in the 5th set engagement.”

Gen.G’s captain, Han “Peanut” Wang-ho, reflected on his loss in the T1 match. In the tense composition, he cited impatience in the final set as the reason for the defeat. He showed his will to win the next game by ‘determining his strength’.

Gen.G was defeated by T1 with a set score of 2-3 in the second round of the bracket stage of the MSI 2023 Mid-Season Invitational (MSI) held at the Copper Box Arena in London, England on the 13th (Korean time). It was a game that left a lot of regret for not being able to continue the momentum of last LCK spring championship.

The result was ‘lose, lose, win, win, lose’. He was on the defensive by giving away the first and second sets in a row, but starting with a come-from-behind victory in the third set, he also took the fourth set to balance the game. I tried to write the long-awaited 5th set, a come-from-behind drama, but impatience caught my ankle. In the end, losing in a teamfight was left with regret.

In an interview after the game, Han Wang-ho said, “The outcome of the match can vary depending on how our strategy and the opponent’s strategy mesh, as well as the condition of the day.” I think I inherited the momentum from the set and came out with my original skills. In the 5th set, the champion composition we expected did not come out.” Then, he revealed his true feelings, saying, “It is very regrettable that it ended so emptyly during the last engagement.”

The set score was tied 2-2 and the 5th set, a tight match, was mixed in the joys and sorrows of the two teams in the ‘team fight’ held in the mid area around the 25th minute. This is the reason why I feel empty because I was completely defeated so easily.

Han Wang-ho said, “I said that it would be good to open a skirmish using Alistar. The call came out in an unorganized situation, but the situation was urgent, so I rushed in,” he said. I could do it very well, but I couldn’t stay calm. That’s why I lost in vain,” he explained.

In the last LCK Spring Finals, Gen.J overturned everyone’s expectations and took the throne by defeating T1. Following last year’s LCK Summer, they defeated T1 in the final twice in a row, but were unable to carry that momentum to MSI this time. Still, thanks to the changed MSI rules, there is one more chance for the finals.

Han Wang-ho said, “Personally, I think the changed meta has an impact, but apart from the meta, I felt that T1 was a little more organized (than the last spring finals). So this match was at a disadvantage in the early sets,” he said. “From the 4th set, we also had a part where we had to solve the ban-pick phase, so I think we were able to go up to the 5th set.”

At the same time, he also revealed his desire to win the MSI. He won the MSI championship in 2017 with SK Telecom T1. After that, his winning streak had nothing to do with it. The thirst is so great.

Han Wang-ho said, “(He won an international competition) I think it’s been a long time. Not only me, but I think ‘Faker’ Sang-hyeok Lee and ‘Ruler’ Jae-hyeok Park all want to win,” he said. “If I win again, I’ll be very happy.” 안전놀이터
