ADC Viper is quite confident in his return to the LCK and wants to achieve the highest goals in the Hanwha Life Esports shirt.
Viper’s arrows surprised when once again returning to HLE to compete. This is where this player used to be for a year without much success before moving to EDward Gaming.
However, this time HLE’s lineup has been heavily invested and is called a “super team” by the media in the 2023 LCK season. In addition to Viper, this team also brought back the duo that has just won Worlds 2022, Kingen. (Top) and Zeka (Mid). After that, the team continued to recruit Clid (Jungle) and Life (Support) to complete the lineup.
In a recent interview with Daily Esports, Viper shared in detail his thoughts on HLE’s “super team” title, and set very specific goals for the 2023 season.
“In my opinion, the current HLE force is quite strong, but everything depends on how we prepare and perform in the coming year. Whether HLE will become a real super team or not will have to wait for the tournament to start to know.” Viper shared.
“Over the course of many seasons, I have always thought that League of Legends is a game that needs the connection of 5 people. Obviously there’s a limit to how well an individual can carry a team, and 5 equal players is much more important. I want a team that is always cohesive and synchronized for a long time, so teamwork is the most important thing.”
Viper said that this trip back to Korea is to conquer the LCK title. After winning the LPL as well as winning the throne at Worlds 2021, the LCK championship is what the ADC born in 2000 aspires to have. In addition, this player also wants to return to Worlds again to prove that last year’s championship was not luck.
When asked about the formidable ADCs next season, Viper said that the bot lane couple should also be considered. After a few seconds of thinking, this player also came up with his own answer.
“I think T1’s bot lane is very good, while the combination of Deft and Kellin in DWG KIA is also remarkable. Therefore, T1 and DK will be the two most formidable opponents.”
