[M Zedd] : Hi Trick nice to meet you. Today was not an easy day, you won over Supermassive which won against CLG yesterday, and you got a very close game against RNG which is 6-0 right now. Do you feel confident about tomorrow, have you seen some improvements with the team and what did you do to do such good games today ?
Trick : Yesterday we lost pretty brutally but today we won, so we feel much better right now. We are trying to show our better selves so I think, you guys [the fans] can raise your expectations.
[M Zedd] : The major problem we have seen on the first day is that you are always searching for fights. Today it was way better, you are looking for more rotations, more objectives : are you going to work in this way, which kind of improvements can you do to step up your games ?
Trick : Through scrims we are getting a lot of practice and getting better. I think at the beginning of the tournament, we tended to just pick on fights rather than play strategically, and that was because outside of the game, our dynamic wasn’t very good at the time.

[M Zedd] : SKT T2 lost 4 games in a row right now and you lost your game against them : do you think you can win over SKT T1 next time and do you think they are becoming weaker than before or not ?
Trick : I believe that as long as we can continue to improve throughout the tournament like we have been, we can definitely defeat SKT next time. I actually think that we can even win five games straight.
[M Zedd] : So are you confident about going to the knockout stage and the semi-finals ?
Trick : Honestly, I’m not 100% confident, but I think it is definitely possible.

[M Zedd] : Which team according to you do you fear the most and why ?
Trick : CLG because, it’s EU vs NA, and we cannot lose to NA [laugh].
[M Zedd] : Have you seen some weaknesses of CLG ? What is your opinion about the team because they are showing some very very good games : they got down FW & also SKT today, so do you think they are going way better because of the MSI or it is because of their synergy, what is their strength ?
Trick : I think the reason that CLG is doing well right now is because their botlane is very strong : Stixxay is really good and Aphromoo is doing a really good job by supporting him. And the midlaner/toplaner/jungler also play very smartly.
[M Zedd] : So what would be your options against the botlane of CLG ?
Trick : Play as usual.
[M Zedd] : Thank you for this interview Trick, and good luck for tomorrow !
