    Perennial contenders T1 started strongly to win the opening game, but Gen.G bounced back strongly to clinch the match 2-1. Speaking to, Gen.G's new Support, Son "Lehends" Si-woo, lamented losing the first skirmish.

    "It's regrettable that we couldn't dominate in all three games," said the 25-year-old.

    "As much as it's disappointing, I feel confident that we can do better. It's a mix of emotions.

    "Our vision control and team fights were lacking. The games 2 and 3 followed a similar trajectory of shortcomings.

    "Closing the first game with a win, I think we've fastened the first button well. I believe it's important to end the year with a smile, so I'll strive to make it an enjoyable year for the fans."

    Key to Gen.G's win was the performance of Jung "Chovy" Ji-hoon in Mid. Lehends believes the 22-year-old has improved immensely.

    "In my opinion, Chovy has improved a lot compared to 2022," continued Lehends.

    "Is that too obvious? Because of that, I can learn a lot. While there were certainly outstanding players in 2022 from whom I could learn, this time, there's a difference in being able to learn in a different direction due to the presence of players excelling in different aspects."

    Gen.G face Nongshim RedForce on Saturday in their final match of Week 1.
