Hanwha Life moves up a weight class, seeks winning streak against LSB
After winning the first game, Hanwha Life Esports will play their second game of the spring against Live Sandbox.
Their opponents, the Live Sandbox, have undergone major changes to their roster. From the coaching staff to the players, there are many new faces. In our first match, we faced DePlus Kia, who have been getting very good reviews from the scrim. We knew it was going to be a tough match because they are such a strong team, but it wasn’t just the result, it was the quality of play. All teams have now played at least one game, and it’s one of the most uneven matchups so far.
Coach Yoo Sang-wook said, “It’s unfortunate that we lost the first game helplessly. As we practiced, we came up with the composition we wanted, but it didn’t work out. Our lineup wasn’t as good as it was in practice, and we’ll have to work hard to make sure that what we learned in practice can be put into practice,” he said, emphasizing the importance of lineup.
Hanwha Life Esports, on the other hand, has received a lot of attention since rebuilding with aggressive recruitment that could help them win the Rold Cup, and they have one point from their first match, a 2:0 victory over Guangdong Freecs. However, it wasn’t without disappointment. The Guangdong Freecs, who, like the Reeve Sandbox, have dropped down a weight class to be more athletic, showed some signs of creakiness against Guangdong. Their individual skills are so good that they were able to pull out the win, but they also exposed a lot of areas that need to be fixed.
However, one player who stood out was Kim “Zeca” Gun-woo. He carried the team with the class of a Rold Cup-winning mid laner. While an easy win is expected against the Reef Sandbox, Hanwha Life Esports will want to see how much they can play the way they want to play as a team, 한국야동 and how much they can improve the form of players who were not fully fit in the first game.
