The silent carry for his team, Nguyễn "Palette" Hải Trung came up huge in Phong Vu Buffalo’s final win over Fenerbahce today, assisting in 23 out of 25 kills for his team. Despite advancing to the knockout stage, he remained calm, perhaps already focused on the next series against Team Liquid, or perhaps just tired from yet another long, drawn out day.
Whatever the case, he is confident in his matchup with the North American representatives this upcoming week, and he told Upcomer that he looks forward to facing off against CoreJJ.
Palette: In our last game, we had a better mindset and felt more confident, but the engages were not up to our expectations, so I feel a little disappointed in that.
We didn’t really worry much actually. Winning all depends on whether we play well or not, it doesn’t depend on the enemy team.
I don’t think it matters where you play, what matters is your mindset and your confidence in your play.
Yeah, since we’re playing in our homeground, we did have all those fans cheering. It’s a big energy boost for us.

I think that after we defeat Team Liquid and go to Hanoi, the fans will be even more excited and crazy. But I do think Faker is still more famous and plays better though, so he will probably still get more cheers.
Doublelift and CoreJJ are a really strong bot lane duo, so we will just train even harder so we can defeat them. I feel pretty confident.
I’ve never met them before, so I can’t really say. But I still feel confident that I can lane against them pretty equally.
I think Zeros is a very high skilled player who can play in both winning and losing matchups very well. But we all don’t really care about what people say, we just try our best and train hard so we can win our games.
Well, CoreJJ, I watched your games a lot as I transferred to the support role, but in our next game we may just upset you 3-0.
