“I predict that Round 2 will be much better than the first”

Round 1 (first legs) of the LCK Summer Split ended last week, and against all expectations, Fredit BRION somehow managed to clinch his first victory of this summer season. After the game, head coach Edgar and jungler Umti went to the press room to answer questions from the media.

How does it feel to have finally won your first split victory?

Edgar : Our first victory came much too late. I am deeply sorry for the fans. However, we finally won our first game of the split, so hopefully we can show more confidence in our game for Round 2.

UmTi : I am also very sorry for our fans that our first victory came so late. Hopefully we can show different styles of play in Round 2.

What was the team’s problem in Round 1 of this split?

Edgar : The biggest problem was our champion pool. Also, we evolved as a unit during the spring split, but we felt like we lost a lot of what we had in our last games. In many cases we lost because we played like we had something to lose.

To overcome these issues, we made a lot of different attempts in fights, even though we lost. These attempts have improved our scrim results a little. In the last 3-4 weeks we have lost all but one game. However, our performance level started to increase 2 or 3 days ago, and we came today thinking that we could finally get a win.

From the players’ point of view, why did you play like those who have “something to lose”?

UmTi : We wanted to try more new things in-game, and that mindset worked against us. Because we wanted to try the things the stronger teams in the league were doing, we lost our marks in the process.

Why did you decide to use the original five members rather than Sw0rd and Gamin?

Edgar : The original five members were unable to correct the things the coaching staff asked of them. We trained with our CL team, and we made a decision. The reason we put together the five original members today is because Morgan and Hena were able to overcome a lot of their weaknesses. Morgan was able to make more calls, and Hena trained very hard, even in soloQ. Recent scrim results have made the team feel like they’ve played like they did in the Spring Split, so the original five members debuted today.

Bel’Veth, a champion who lost twice in the LCK, was chosen tonight. How is it possible ?

UmTi : I don’t think Bel’Veth was the reason for those two losses. I feel like the games she lost all went in a very weird direction, so her LCK record didn’t really bother me.

Fredit BRION will again face stronger teams in the league in Round 2, such as DWG KIA, DRX, and T1.

Edgar : We may have gotten our first win of the split, but all the teams we have to face are really good. That’s why I hope to lead the team to make the plays they want, without regrets.

How do you envisage the course of the team in the 2nd round?

Edgar : I predict it will be much better than the first one. Kim “Aiming” Ha-ram once said that actual match results are the opposite of scrim results, but oddly our match and scrim results were the same. Now that we are winning in scrims, I think our Round 2 will be better.

UmTi : I’m one to hold my tongue on topics like this, because the opposite of what I say always happens. That’s why I’ll say our run will be abysmal in Round 2 [rires].

Finally, is there anything you would like to say?

Edgar : I’m really sorry for all the fans who were worried. If we are able to continue, it is thanks to all the fans who support us. Our CEO is also at LoL Park today, and all of these things have really helped our players. Thanks.

UmTi : I want to say to the players and the coaching staff that even though things have been difficult over the past few days, they have held on. Thank you, and let’s work hard for the second round.
