Gumayusi was psychologically disturbed because he did not perform well in the match against SGB, Faker immediately calmed down his juniors with profound advice.
After the first day of the MSI 2022 group stage, T1 had a destructive victory against SGB as expected by fans. However, it is not true to say that this is a complete destruction match, because SGB had an extremely “explosive” start in the bot lane.
SGB’s Shogun and Taki duo played confidently to overwhelm T1’s Gumayusi and Keria in the first few minutes. Only with the impact of the forest, the T1 couple gradually regained their advantage.
After this performance, the bot lane duo of SGB received a lot of praise from the experts. Many positive comments say that VCS players always bring unexpected and extremely exciting competition situations.
Meanwhile, bot lane duo Gumayusi and Keria seemed unsatisfied with their performance in this matchup. Gumayusi shared that he was feeling very frustrated because he did not play well. This is quite normal for a young player who is burning with determination to express himself, especially being “overwhelmed” against a lower-rated opponent makes Gumayusi feel even more dissatisfied.
Immediately after the match, Faker himself admitted that the bot lane duo T1 did not perform well. At the same time, he also gave a profound advice to Gumayusi to calm his juniors.
Specifically, knowing that Gumayusi felt frustrated because of his performance. Faker frankly shared with the reporter: “For a person to lie down in such a game, one should not feel frustrated.”
Instead of giving words of encouragement, Faker hit the psyche of his juniors. Faker’s implication is that if he did not do well, he has no right to be angry, even at himself.
As such, Gumayusi and Keria will surely soon return to their destructive form in the next match. The most worrying thing for SGB is that they have awakened the “monsters” of T1, it is highly likely that the bot lane duo T1 will not leave SGB alone in the upcoming rematch.
