One of the best players in the LCK at the moment is also not satisfied with his own performance.
T1 struggled to win 2-1 against Nongshim RedForce on August 7. However, this important score helps them to definitely start the LCK Summer 2022 play-off round from Round 2. Not only the fans are worried, but even Zeus – the most impressive player on the team with Player scores. of the Game (POG) highest in the region – also expressed disappointment in the post-match interview.
“I played poorly. I am extremely angry with myself. The Camille pick in game 1 wasn’t just bad, but I played poorly as well. Getting Ready to Attack for Renekton in game 2, I tried to squeeze the enemy lane as much as I could but it just couldn’t be done. I’m even helpless when being ganked. In game 3, everything was arranged for me to carry, but I couldn’t do it well” – honest T1 top laner. “I’ve been training Renekton a lot lately. I should have played better when I reached the threshold of strength, but I didn’t. I wasn’t able to play properly. My teammates played very well but there are many things that will definitely let me down.”
Zeus also did not forget to talk about the idea of building Renekton. “There was a single Challenger tier player who used Ready Attack and got Sword of Doom before completing Dark Claw. If Renekton is ‘green’ enough, its damage is extremely terrible. It can obliterate enemy bot lane so I took a look at this guy’s playstyle. I thought I could play like that in game 2 (against NS) but looking back, it wasn’t that good. Honestly, gearing up isn’t the problem, it’s the gameplay. Since last year, I have always performed poorly on Renekton, so this can be considered a low note in my career.”
Despite admitting that he did not play well in the Bo3 series with NS, Zeus boldly blocked Zeus and Zac for the first time in the LCK Summer 2022. According to statistics, Zeus is currently the top laner using the most champions in the LCK along with Canna with a total of 13 names. “The fact that I had the opportunity to play champions that I did not have a good experience in the ring. There are too many playable champions in top lane. The more champions I play, the more options I have in the future. That’s why I actively try to play with more options in top lane. Zac is a very strong tank when in ‘tickling’ fights. Not only was my opponent picking Ornn first, but Zac was the best pick in that scenario. I’ve been training this champion a lot in Solo Queue lately and it’s really strong. So I decided to bring Zac in tonight.”
Zeus also added about the performance in game 3 against NS: “When there was a lane change, I fell down trying to stop Kalista’s Return. At that time, Ornn was ahead because he could farm more waves of minions. I thought the damage couldn’t be fixed so I decided to roll down to help the bot lane take the lead. However, because of that, I fell further behind in level. I had to raise my E to get a good angle to start the fight but even after I did, I still couldn’t do a good rear jump. So I just jump in whenever I find a potential corner.”
T1 still has two more matches in the group stage against top 4 opponents, Liiv SANDBOX (11-5) and DWG KIA (9-7). Zeus did not forget to comment on the last two matches of T1 before entering the LCK Summer 2022 playoffs. Recently, I received a lot of POG votes so gradually I became greedy leading to many errors. I’m thinking about it and will make sure to bring victory to the team instead of focusing on winning individual titles,” – the youngest player T1 concluded.
