Heo Su cited the wide champ width as the strength of DK. He emphasized, “Our players have a wide range of champs, so there is no problem with any composition.”
Regarding the big match against T1 in the next game, he expressed his confidence in victory, saying, “Last year, we had no match win against T1. So, I really want to win this year.”
The following is the full text of the interview with ‘Showmaker’ Heo Su.
Achieved 3 victories in a row. First of all, how do you feel about winning?
It’s really good to win 2-0 three times in a row, and I think we can prepare well for the next game. A 2-0 win is good in terms of points. Victory points are getting more and more important, but I think it’s more meaningful if we build them up well. I hope to see more 2-0 victories in the future.
Since all of our team members are doing well, I thought we would get good grades.
There is talk that solo rankings and tournament metas are not very interesting, but
that seems to be true. Certain champions are out of balance. In a situation where there is no diversity right now, solo lang and team games are originally different, but this is the first time that they have been so different. It seems like a completely different game. If team game is role 1, solo rank is team 2. A patch is needed. I saw the next patch, but the important thing is to nerf the support money item. It is the main culprit that ruins the canyon.
With similar champs constantly appearing, what do you see as DK’s strengths?
First of all, our players have a wide range of champs. So, no matter what the composition is, there is no problem. The same goes for Jayce in the middle of the first set. The angle looked good, so I chose it spontaneously. I think there will be various champs and compositions in the future, but I have no problem.
In the middle of the first set, Jayce was brought out. Could you explain the pick background a bit more?
It was seen that the opponent was going to eat Yrelo Jace. Yrel turned the counter because it was clear.
Which champ are you most confident in in the current meta?
If you look at the current meta, Syndra is pretty confident. Kassadin has been banned a lot lately, so I really want to show him if I get a chance.
Got a solo kill at the beginning of the 2nd set. You must have been surprised by the rookie’s spirit, but I liked
my situation at that time. It would have been nice to just push that and go home, but I caught my guard while eating a long-distance minion. Still, it was fortunate that it was not 1 kilometer tall.
The long-awaited next opponent is T1. Are you ready to meet T1 after a long time?
We didn’t win a match against T1 last year. So, I really want to win this year.
Then, who will make a big difference in the T1 match?
Since Changdong was in T1, I think he will play a big role.
Who is the most wary player in T1?
These days, just looking at the performance of T1, all players are good.
I think we need to block T1’s baron try, but
it was the same last year, and T1 sees the angle of the baron better than other teams. We have to be vigilant about that part, and in the first place, we have to put pressure on the opponent so that he can’t hit Baron.
What do you think of the mid lane match?
It feels like a champion has been decided, so there is not much difference. In the end, I think the team that is good at teamfighting will win.
What kind of mid laner do you want to develop into this spring?
want to win I will do anything as long as I can win. (laughs)
Any last words?
The next game is the most important schedule of the entire spring. I will show you how to win by working harder.
