Team SoloMid top laner Heo "Huni" Seung-hoon believes the team environment has improved since Wang "Yursan" Sheng-Yu was promoted from the Academy roster, but insists there is still a lot of work to do in the LCS Spring Split 2022.
On Saturday, TSM are 11/8 to beat FlyQuest, who are 8/15 to win, in the LCS Spring.
Former Academy talent "Yursan" was promoted to the TSM starting roster earlier this year with Wei "Shenyi" Zi-Jie moving in the other direction.
But the move has done little to change their fortunes in the LCS Spring, in which they are rock bottom of the regular-season standings with a 1-8 win-loss record.
In the most recent week, they fell to defeat against Counter Logic Gaming, who are ninth in the standings, and "Huni" believes that showed how poorly the team have been playing.
But there could still be time for TSM to turn their campaign around with the LCS Spring Split only at the halfway point and "Huni" admits the team dynamics have been good recently.
In an interview with Inven Global, asked if the team had made progress since the promotion of "Yursan" to the first team, "Huni" said: "Despite the losses, I do feel we have improved a little bit.
"As the environment was, we've gotten a lot better outside of the game. Inside of the game, we still need to work on a lot.
"The fact we just lost against Counter Logic Gaming means that we honestly just need to accept that we are not playing well. We're just bad, pretty much, so there's a lot of things that we need to work on as a team."
