Doran was once laughed at by the League of Legends community for sharing his goal of becoming the best Top Lane in the LCK 2023. But his confidence only increased, not decreased.
After losing the bot lane Ruler – Lehends, GEN put their faith in Peyz – ADC who pushed up from GEN’s youth team, and Delight – an unknown support in the LCK. In that situation, the LCK teams are racing to build super teams. Typically, it can be mentioned as HLE with the most expensive ADC contract for Viper or DK with no regrets to get Deft.
GEN’s new lineup is much “younger” than the rest of the competitors for the LCK championship. However, top laner Doran doesn’t think so. The guy who interviewed with INVEN is extremely confident that GEN has a greater chance of winning than people think.
Doran shared about GEN’s positive scrim results: “We’ve played against quite a few teams over the years and feel that no team is invincible. The strength of the opponents is almost equal, so we can achieve good results.”
Besides, Doran also talked about the difficulties that GEN encountered when “assembling” a new squad: “Gen.G’s upper wing has really improved coordination compared to the 2022 season, of course wants to If all 5 members get along, it takes a little more time. I think it’s 50% done and we’ll be fully engaged soon, which is clearly not a big deal.”
Before the negative comments about GEN’s future in the 2023 season, Doran did not flinch and also shared more about his personal goals: “I think good results come from a solid foundation. , so for now I will aim to connect well with my teammates. My further goal will be to become the best Top laner in the league, not only for achievements but also to be the best player in everyone’s mind. The team and I are full of confidence, and if we continue to receive support from the fans, good results will come quickly.”
Delight – Peyz will face tremendous pressure when having to replace Lehends – Ruler, the bot lane is ranked first and second in the LCK. However, this challenge is also an opportunity for two young players because their teammates are extremely qualified and experienced.
