At the present time, if we have to find the brightest name for the 2022 LCK Spring Championship, perhaps most LoL fans will think of T1. Not only destroying direct opponents like DWG KIA, Gen.G Esports, but in each match, T1 also shows an extremely satisfying and convincing gameplay. Typically, in the recent match against Gen.G, it was the young player Zeus who made a great contribution to bringing the victory to T1.

But it can be said that, despite the absence of ADC Ruler, Gen.G also caused many difficulties for T1. And if it weren’t for Faker’s “melancholy” handling in game 1 and Zeus in game 2, T1 might have “resentful”. In particular, in game 2, T1 also lost the Soul of the Earth Dragon to Gen.G after a somewhat rushed call base race phase.

After the match, T1’s 1st AD carry – Gumayusi admitted that he and his teammates were somewhat outplayed by Gen.G in game 2 from the pick and ban stage as well as making many mistakes himself: “When we banned Ziggs, and Syndra, we expected them to bring out a pure AD carry, but their pick of Viktor surprised us. Honestly, Aphelios is hard to be effective against non-ADC champions. If I win easily, I’m a bit careless, so I lay down a lot. Fortunately, I still have teammates to “carry”.

In addition, Gumayusi also admitted, he felt sorry for Gen.G because he never faced T1 but had the strongest lineup. Still confident that he will be able to win even if Gen.G does not lose personnel, but Gumayusi still wants to have a fair chance to confront, both sides have the strongest lineup with Gen.G in future.
When asked about the new champion Renata, Gumayusi also had his own comment. He thinks that this champion is slow and lacks mobility. Not a pure Support nor a mage type that can make it difficult for opponents to lane. According to Gumayusi, Renata will be “discarded” when appearing in the professional arena.

But anyway, it’s still a long time from now until Renata can participate. And if Riot can fix it, or the players find a suitable direction for this champion, maybe Renata can be used by T1 and bring victory to Faker and his teammates.
