Let's first congratulate OMG for coming out victorious in their second match with Snake! We'll be interviewing the player that everyone loves, big brother Gogoing. Hi~
We saw that the first match seemed a bit disorganized. Many people were spectating the games today since both teams are very strong. We didn't think you'd in a situation where you'd be under so much pressure in the first match match. How did you feel at the time?
Gogoing: I think it has to do with the four-man shove that the other team executed in the beginning. We didn't have a good response to it.
Yes, it seems like they were rather illusive when the game first started.
Gogoing: Also, in terms of our team comp, we were really disadvantaged coming into mid to late game. So it was a really difficult game to play.
So where do you think the main problem was in the first game? Did you think that they would play that way?
Gogoing: Well, I also think they're a really strong team.
Well, honestly, even in the second game, we saw that Snake's team-fighting ability was really quite strong. They were also able to constantly pick fights with your team. In terms of shot-calling and communicating with your team, what did you do differently that allowed you to pick up the victory?
Gogoing: In the first game, they executed a couple of four-man shoves and, we've played against that kind of style before - we've had experience. In the second game, we had an answer and used a three-man push against them in return so we wouldn't have a huge deficit and so that we could, perhaps, gain an advantage instead.
Are you the main shot-caller?
Everyone performed rather well on your team today in the second game. Even though Rengar had some timely ganks, Loveling was able to answer back and counter-gank twice with Jarvan IV. He was able to effectively contain those situations. Could you pick out someone on your team who played particularly well in the second game and give them a rating?
Gogoing: I think everyone played really well.
We know Snake has been gaining some incredible momentum in these past few weeks. Even you mentioned their early game in game one was really amazing.
Gogoing: Absolutely. I honestly would've never thought that they would use a strategy like that.
Could you briefly tell us what you think about this dark horse team from what you've seen so far?
Gogoing: They're a very bold and consistent team. They also have a lot of unique strategies.
Next time you face them, will you make any preparations leading to it? Do you feel the pressure?
Gogoing: We'll be pretty nervous since we haven't really faced them much before.
Before this, you were undefeated. We can say your winning streak ended today. Snake's mid laner [Baka] also seemed to be injured [reference: Baka fractured his elbow while filming a short segment called "League of Legends: Fighting!"]. How will prepare to play against them in your upcoming matches?
Gogoing: We're going to practice more countering them, and we'll have to put more thought into our team composition.
Well, we hope that OMG can - especially since you've always been a rather strong team, a team that we've always paid attention to - fix your mentality and make it stronger and stronger. We're looking forward to your next match~
