One of the biggest surprises of the 2023 LCK Spring Split so far has been the declining performance of the “Galaxy” lineup Hanwha Life Esports. Highly expected after the epic 2022 season-end transfer window, but as of the match against T1 on the afternoon of February 3 (Vietnam time), HLE is still in the second half of the rankings. Even so, HLE still made a miracle: ending T1’s unbeaten streak in this year’s LCK Spring.

Notably, HLE brought home the victory in a losing position after the first game ended. Even many viewers believe that T1 will easily end the match with a score of 2-0 if HLE continues to show a poor performance like in game 1 of this confrontation and their previous matches. . However, games 2 and 3 saw the rise of HLE players. They completed the comeback and brought T1 back to the ground after 4 high-flying matches.

However, sharing after the game, Faker and coach Bengi were still optimistic even though they had just lost to a team that was in worse form and results. Specifically, Faker said: “I admit that up to this point, we have had a lot of tests and this match too. And we have collected very meaningful data around this issue. “. However, Faker still admits that the whole team lost because he and his teammates did not prepare well and did not have the mentality to win.
Faker admitted that T1 had trial picks and bans, but also said that the team did not have the right preparation and the mentality to win.
But anyway, maybe the loss is necessary for the players themselves and the T1 coaching staff to look at the shortcomings. The journey at LCK Spring 2023 is still long and for sure, T1 will have to prepare better because their goal is not only the domestic tournament but also the MSI 2023 that will take place in London next.
