“I expect ban-picks for 3-4 hours the day before the game.”
Unstoppable ‘Sandstorm’ Liv Sandbox is running for 6th win with DRX. In addition, they are continuing their solo 3rd place move. The improving performance day by day has raised the momentum of the sandbox to the fullest. Head coach Yoo “Ryu” Sang-wook also expressed his satisfaction.
Sandbox defeated DRX with a set score of 2-1 in the ‘2023 LoL Champions Korea (LCK)’ spring split held at LoL Park in Jongno-gu, Seoul on the 10th.
Coach Yoo, who met with reporters after the game, said, “I am really happy to win the match against the sponsor bank. The odds of the playoffs have increased, but I think it will be easier to settle down if I adapt well to patch changes.” 메이저놀이터
In the 3rd set, the sandbox showed a good performance by selecting a surprise pick ‘Sona’ supporter as the number of wins. It was a sharp ban-pick that seemed to anticipate and prepare for the opponent. However, director Yoo replied that it was not planned, that he only practiced mainly on composition.
He said, “I didn’t come out during practice. In the previous LCK match, the composition came out, so I felt like I needed to practice, and I focused on composition practice, and I played one or two games, but it seems to have come out rather well.”
Like this, the sandbox’s sharp ban-pick caught the opponent off guard every time. Coach Yoo, who received praise, said, “Analysts and coaches spend 3-4 hours anticipating what bans, picks and scenarios will come out and play the next day. That’s why we were able to produce good results.”
The sandbox will meet the strong team T1 and Dplus Kia in a row in the upcoming 5th week. In response, director Yoo said, “I think I need to do a good job in research in the next patch that changes. If this goes well, I think we can win against strong teams.”
Lastly, coach Yoo expressed his aspirations, saying, “The fans told me it was a ‘bank match’, and I am happy to win. I will do well in the next match and maintain a good performance.”
