25-year-old Korean top laner Kim “Ssumday” Chan-ho, who has been representing 100 Thieves for four years, spoke in a recent interview with Inven Global and talked about their success in LCS Summer 2021.

100 Thieves has been beating all the expectations in the summer split of LCS as they lost only two games throughout the split. Also, they become the first team that finished a weekend in the first place besides TSM, Cloud9, and Team Liquid in 757 days.

Two of the biggest reasons for this success were the addition of European mid laner Felix “Abbedagge” Braun and Korean head coach Bok “Reapered” Han-gyu who worked for teams like Cloud, T1, and many more.

In the conversation, Ssumday mentioned that Reapered saw lots of mistakes they have been doing such as community-wise and gameplay-wise, and he helped the players to correct their playstyles.

Besides that, he also praised the talent of their new mid laner Abbedagge and said that he has been performing so well since the beginning. Besides that, he also mentioned that they have a huge champion pool, which helps them overpower other teams in LCS.

Interviewer asked:

“100 Thieves lost only two games this summer. What’s been working well?”

Ssumday replied:

“All five players on our team have a very wide champion pool so it’s really convenient. Other than that, I think we’ve been doing well because our fundamentals are really good.”

Interviewer asked:

“Reapered and Abbedagge must be a big help as well. What change did they bring to the team?”

Ssumday replied:

“When he first came to the team, in the blink of an eye, Reapered spotted all the players’ pros and cons… Even ones I wasn’t even aware of.

That way, Reapered was a huge help to our improvement. It seems he has very keen observation skills. As for Abbedagge, he’s been gobbling up all the MVPs and we’re winning with him. He’s doing great.

For me, I have two new valuable friends. We work hard and have fun together. We go through feedback sessions that last until midnight — even on days we play on stage. I’m proud that we’re having good results together.”

Further in the conversation, Ssumday also revealed that he had been lacking on communicating with his teammates and mentioned that he started to talk much more this split after their head coach found out that this is a huge mistake by the team.
