On May 12, T1 defeated DetonatioN FocusMe in the last match of the day three matches in the 2022 Mid Season Invitational. With this victory, T1 not only picked up their 3rd victory of the tournament, they also remain undefeated as they head into round 2 of the Group Stages.
The jungler for T1, Moon “Oner” Hyeon-joon, joined Jeesun Park on the Korean broadcast to talk about his victory.
Thoughts on the victory over DFM?
I’m glad that we were able to triumph in the Korea vs. Japan rivalry match against DFM, and that we are undefeated so far in the tournament.
Keria said in an interview that T1 are playing the Group Stage like they’re scrims. What’s the research process been like?
As Keria said, we really didn’t have a lot of time to play scrims, so we’re treating Groups like scrims. We’re playing the champions that we want on stage to figure out the meta.
There seems to be a lot of priority over Wukong in this tournament. What are your thoughts on the champion?
I think he’s a top-tier champion right now. He’s not slow at clearing the jungle and he’s really good at teamfighting, so I think he’s really good right now.
Steal also got a few kills under his belt that game, so what was your game plan?
I think that because we’re just playing champions that we want to, we didn’t exactly win in draft. Because of this, our bot lane was struggling, so I focused heavily around our bot lane.
How do you rate T1’s current power level?
I’d say that we’re at about 60-70%. I believe we have a lot more to show.
What does the team need to do to showcase their 100% for round 2?
As long as I play well, I know we can show our 100%. I’ll prepare thoroughly to do so.
Your plans for round 2?
Our current momentum can make us complacent, so we’ll make sure to stay focused until the end.
