Despite playing against big names like Phạm "Zeros" Minh Lộc and Kim "Ruin" Hyeong-min in the top lane, Mimic held his own and even got the best of his opponents a few times. Mimic and the crew look forward to tomorrow, hoping to ride this momentum they’ve gathered. And now that they’ve beaten the first place team, Mimic told Upcomer at the end of MSI Day 1 that it’s all smooth sailing from here.
Mimic: At the start, we did lose a bit, and we started to have issues with our mentality, but then together, with all our teammates, we cheered each other on and decided to go into the next game with a better mentality. We had a hard start [against Isurus] but we managed to win the game, and after that, we rode that victory through the second win.
Well, now that we are more comfortable and used to the environment, I think we’ll win more.
We are a very aggressive team, and we rely a lot on jungle pressure to win the early game and close out games. But since our early games didn’t go as planned and our jungle kind of failed a bit, we then failed a bit together. That’s why we lost our first two matches.

I think the OPL’s solo queue environment isn’t that good. I think if that gets more in the news and then people play more solo queue and it gets more competitive, our league could be more competitive and famous for its power.
I don’t think there are many stories to share, we just tryhard and try to have fun.
But today when we went in the games in the pick bans, our jungler didn’t know a champion name in English, so he almost didn’t pick a champion. The champion was Nautilus, he just didn’t know how to type that in.
Hahaha! I don’t think I’m a funny guy, Pabu is the funny guy. He is so kind for saying that.
Pabu has a very strong mental and tries very hard, so I think he’ll do well, but I hope he does hit Challenger in Korea.
