During the interview, ShowMaker revealed that the situation unfolded during a critical team fight in the late game. As the fight ensued, T1's ADC, Teddy, managed to escape with incredibly low health, barely clinging onto life. ShowMaker, fearing that his team would lose the team fight, instinctively used his ultimate ability, Syndra's Unleashed Power, to secure the kill on Teddy.

While his move did indeed secure the kill, it unintentionally prevented Sante from securing the kill himself and potentially securing a much-needed boost to his own gold and experience accumulation. ShowMaker expressed regret for not being able to calculate the situation in the chaos of the game, apologizing to Sante and his team for any miscommunication or misunderstanding caused.

The controversial play quickly caught the attention of the League of Legends community, sparking heated debates across social media platforms. Many criticized ShowMaker for his perceived lack of team coordination and disregard for his teammate's success, while others defended him, citing the adrenaline-fueled nature of competitive gaming as a cause for such abrupt decisions.

Nevertheless, Damwon Gaming remains united amidst the controversy. ShowMaker's teammates publicly vouched for his skill and dedication, emphasizing that the incident was a mere blip in an otherwise strong team dynamic.

ShowMaker concluded the interview by stating that he has learned from the incident and will strive to be more mindful of his teammates' circumstances in future games. He expressed his determination to improve as a player and continue contributing to the team's success.

As the League of Legends community processes ShowMaker's explanation, it remains to be seen how this incident will impact the future dynamics within Damwon Gaming and their performance in upcoming matches. The esports scene is rife with moments of fierce competition and split-second decisions; only time will tell whether this particular incident will be remembered as a minor hiccup or a significant turning point for ShowMaker and his team.
