As we all know, on February 23, T1 had a convincing victory against DWG KIA and extended their unbeaten streak to 11. Not stopping there, this victory also helped T1 is the first team to definitely participate in the LCK Spring 2022 playoffs, regardless of the results of the remaining rounds. This makes T1 fans happy and many believe that the championship this spring is firmly in the hands of this team.
T1 is currently on a streak of 11 consecutive wins
This probably also affects the psychology of the young players on the T1 side. Although players like Keria and Gumayusi did not directly confirm, the confidence they showed showed that these guys are playing with a “waiting for the championship” mentality. With an experienced “veteran” like Faker, he understands that this is a very dangerous psychological trap, so the “chairman” of T1 recently made moves to keep young teammates on the ground.
In the latest interview, Faker still thinks that it is too early to confirm that T1 will win the LCK Spring 2022.
Specifically, in an interview with Kookmin Ilbo, Faker affirmed that it is too early to say that T1 will win the Spring Split and that the whole team must focus as much as possible if they want to achieve this goal. “The biggest challenge for us right now is not to be overconfident, but also to stay motivated. It’s too early to say we’ll win the tournament so the whole team needs to focus. maximum, practice even harder” – shared Faker.
In fact, the above cautions of Faker are not superfluous when in recent matches, the young players on T1’s side actually have quite subjective times. Just last week when meeting Nongshim RedForce, T1 was able to finish the opponent with a score of 2-0 with too great a advantage. However, with only an uncertain bot lane attack in the 27th minute, NS was able to regain the game and defeat T1 in that game.
T1 could have beaten NS 2-0 last weekend but the momentary subjectivity of the young players cost them a game.
In the group stage, then in the more intense matches in the playoffs, the price to pay will be much more expensive. Therefore, keeping a cool head and maximum focus on winning instead of thinking about the championship is what the young stars of T1 need to do. In front of them is a match against Hanwha Life Esports that is not too difficult this afternoon – February 26. All T1 needs to do is win convincingly and make as few mistakes as possible.
