In a post-match interview, KarlTzy admitted that many teams have forgotten just how good he is with the assassin hero.
“I feel that other teams aren’t scared of my Lancelot anymore because I lost my touch with the hero a few seasons ago,” he said. “But now, it’s back.”
He also talked about what’s going through his mind during the final moments of the game when he got the wipeout.
“I was so focused on the game that I couldn’t see anything. I was really in the zone that time,” KarlTzy recalled. “I am always calm when I get a Savage. I’m better at making plays when I’m calm.”
ECHO will next face TNC on Saturday, March 26, at 4 p.m. GMT+8. follow ONE Esports on Facebook for MPL PH news and updates.
