Deft, who shed tears, said, “If I had lost the EDG match, I would have remembered the backdoor.”
“I sincerely believed that we did better”
On the 24th (Korea Standard Time), at Hulu Theater, located inside Madison Square Garden in New York City, New York, the match between DRX and EDG in the quarterfinals of the 2022 League of Legends World Championship (hereinafter referred to as the 2022 LOL World Cup) ended.
On this day, DRX won against EDG after a bloody battle to the end. DRX, which has reached the semifinals, will now compete with LCK first-seeded Gen.G for the final.
All the players in the EDG match did well, but “Deft” Kim Hyuk-kyu, who caught Ezreal, shed tears in an official Riot broadcast interview after the game, saying, “I wasn’t going to cry, but I suddenly cried.”
“From the start of this LOL World Cup, I wanted to feel like I was moving forward even if I didn’t win my goal. I felt that way while playing today. “I’m so happy,” he said, expressing his impressive feelings about advancing to the semifinals.
DRX gave away 1st and 2nd sets. Kim Hyuk-kyu recalled the third set in the corner and said, “Even if we lost the first and second sets, I sincerely believed we were better and told the team members that way. Especially in the second set, I was able to break the Nexus, but it’s too bad I couldn’t. So if I lost today, I really don’t want to imagine it. “I kept thinking about the scene,” he confessed.
“Both players played so well that it was hard to deal with them,” he said to his old teammates scout and Meiko. In fact, they are strong players who can control them well even if I don’t comfort them. “I want to see you again next time,” he stressed.
In addition, he said about his opponent Gen.G in the semifinals, “I was uncomfortable because there were players who had the same goal in the opponent from the best development, but I still can’t help it. “I have no choice but to win against him well,” he vowed. 토토추천
