After a close first card against Fnatic during day 3 of VALORANT Champions, Kim “Lakia” Jong-min went to Jong-min Twitter to express his disappointment with himself after losing 10-13 at Icebox.
“F ***” he said online.
“I get mad because we lose every game I play,” he added minutes later.
I get mad because we lose every game I play.

The former NUTURN gaming player is considered one of the top competitors of the event, but only plays as a substitute for certain maps. For this specific matchup, Lakia only played on the first map and suspended the rest of the series. The initiator player got off the map with a 13/15 kill / death ratio on Sova and played a decent card. He passed off positively against almost all of the Fnatic’s, but that performance wasn’t enough.
According to teammate Yu “BuZz” Byung-chul, Lakia is a boon to Vision Strikers when he comes into the game.
“As a person, he gives us a really positive energy and that’s how he has this effect,” said BuZz. “And he’s there to make certain important calls during the game. I think these aspects of communication and atmosphere are the greatest advantages we have when Lakia plays with us. “

Vanity didn’t send words to Lakia, but instead sent a ghost hug gif to add some digital convenience.

Vision Strikers lost their series to Fnatic 2-1. The South Korean team shared the card standings after the win in Haven. But Fnatic rolled them over at Fracture and won nine of the first 10 rounds.
Vision Strikers finished the card with a respectable 6-13 score and will now return to the bottom tier of the group. You will meet either FULL SENSE or Cloud9 for the last place in the group for the knockout phase.
