Expectations: Team Liquid Doublelift | LCS Summer Split Preview

For some players they’re just happy they’re in LCS. For some players they’d be happy to make Playoffs for the first time. For some players, they’d be happy to you know, like, make it to the Finals or win LCS, that’s like their ultimate… fantasy. But for us, and me especially I don’t need to dream about it, I don’t need to like… motivate myself with it, I know exactly how it feels. And it feels great. But I don’t know how it feels to win a big tournament with the best teams in the world. And so I think about that more than anything else. Maybe some people think like, “Oh, Team Liquid made it to the Finals and
they beat IG, what an insane run at MSI.” Team Liquid, channeling the hopes and dreams
of every North American fan! And to me, I’m like, what a failure. We made it all the way to the Finals
and we didn’t win. So… I don’t think I’ll look back with pride ever on that. Like, I will always be really ashamed
that we didn’t win the Finals. It couldn’t be more devastating to lose, a game, honestly like, to be that close. Our coach actually told us after we came back from MSI that the expectation is that we’ll win in a dominating fashion. If you win three times in a row basically, everyone expects you to win again and this time, even better,
because you have the experience of MSI. So you better be better than the last time. I don’t know, I don’t even know when the expectations end. I feel like no matter what team I’m on my team is expected to win. But I think mine… are always constant. It’s always to be the best.
