The 2021 LCS Championship got underway this past weekend with third-place Evil Geniuses taking down Dignitas in an easy 3-1 set. The team’s outspoken mid laner Jiizuke has been having a great season so far, securing a spot on the 2021 LCS Summer All-Pro first team as proof of his resurgence. He also posted a statement on social media yesterday where he reflected on the past year and the struggles he’s faced.
In the post, which was written in Italian and tnslated by Reddit user TheIdiotNinja, Jiizuke said he was mentally burnt out after being cut from Team Vitality in 2019 and getting benched by EG in 2020. But when the team added star players like Impact and IgNar, his faith in the team grew exponentially. After head coach Peter Dun was hired, his confidence rose even more since he believes they have “the same idea of how [they] want to play.”
