Interviewing SGB Taki after finishing his journey at MSI 2022, Taki shared that he wanted to remove G2 from the top 4 because he was betrayed by “expatriate son” Giang Van Cot.
Thus, Saigon Buffalo closed its journey at MSI 2022 with the top 6 position. This is considered a good achievement for VCS young players, especially when they are the No. 2 Seed in the region. Although underrated, SGB has also made the “big guys” miserable. In which victory over G2 Esports and PSG Talon, and almost “shut down” RNG are valuable lessons for “buffaloes”.
With this achievement, SGB members were able to proudly return to their home country, preparing for a competitive new season. After the last day of competition, Taki shared with reporters about his joy at this year’s MSI journey.
Reporter: Welcome Taki. For you, the tournament is over, but you guys got the win against G2 to end the tournament. With that in mind, how do you feel about your last day?
Taki: I’m feeling very happy, especially about the win against G2, but I think I will be even happier if we also win against T1. We go into today with a very determined mindset to win these games. We really want G2 out of the top 4.
Reporter: Why do you want to get rid of them?
Taki: Because Jankos, or Giang Van Cot, betrayed his Vietnamese family! *Laugh* “
Looking back at the MSI 2019, SGB at that time with the name Phong Vu Buffalo also won against G2 Esports in the first and second legs of the Rumble round. It can be said that at that time G2 was an extremely strong team, they respectively won against SKT T1 and Team Liquid to win the MSI 2019 championship.
Winning the championship and losing both matches against the VCS representative in the Rumble round, that’s why the international League of Legends community joked that Phong Vu Buffalo is truly the only enemy of G2 Esports. At the same time, Jankos was nicknamed by Vietnamese fans as “the expatriate son” Giang Van Cot, because of his friendliness and a bit of affection for the VCS region.
Back in the Rumble MSI 2022 round, G2 and SGB had their first match on day 2, this time G2 Esports destroyed the representative from VCS. Right after that, “the expatriate son” Giang Van Cot also had to post an apology to “home”.
After all, G2 is still brave enough to reach the semi-finals of MSI 2022, it is certain that many Vietnamese fans are still supporting the LEC regional representative. G2 Esports is facing the opportunity to make history MSI 2019 that they were crowned champion.
MSI 2022 information will be updated, please stay tuned for more.
