Well, I'm here with whom I would say the captain of Godsent - pronax. Tell me what are your feeling after winning such a close game against mousesports?
I'm obviously very happy also very proud of my teammates and I'm just eager to come back tomorrow and play in semifinals.
Well, the first map, let's be honest it was just a blow out. It looked like mousesports finally will do it, get to the semis. At the second map you came back stronger and the third was just clutches after clutches for each team. talk me through the games.
Well honestly I don't really remember the rounds right now, it's all kind of a blur, but I kind of remember the round where Niko almost turned the game around by himself where he got 4 kills, but znajder managed to clutch it. And after that round we were so excited that we had to take a timeout and just chill, take it easy. But yeah, the rest of the rounds is almost a blur right now.
The first big tournament you play as a organization and what could be better than playing it in Sweden with crowd being the 6th man? How does it feel to be out there playing to your home crowd?
We couldn't hear the crowd when we sat in the booths, but when we went out after the map wins we could obviously hear the fans cheering. And I mean we obviously want to win for ourselves but we also want to win for our fans. I don't know what to say really, I'm just really happy that we managed to win.
It's good to see you competing again at a prominent LAN under a new team and a new banner. How has the development of this new roster went over the last couple months?
We have struggled a bit online in different qualifiers and stuff like that, but at the same time, when we created this team we decided from the beginning that we will build our gameplay up the right way. You don't want to stress anything even if we have qualifiers because there are seven maps in the pool and you can't become good on every map in two, three weeks especially now when CS:GO has reached the level that it has. Every team has a deep map pool, every team is built teamplay wise on every map, so I think it is a lot harder now to make a new team than it was before because it takes more time now. But I think we learn something every time and this is the calmest team I ever played with, even if some players are inexperienced we can be down 8-0 but everyone is just calm and try to find the solution so I`m very happy.
After this event is over where you consider yourself amongst the top tier teams and what you should do to improve?
I don't know yet because the tournament isn't finished but I think we just gonna try to win every game here, and then we will see where the community ranks us. We will just try to improve and hopefully we will get higher in the rankings and will be able to play more tournaments in future.
Speaking of future.. With the controversies regarding the invite process of teams into Faceit's ECS league, how has that affected you and your new founded organization in regards to obtaining invite spots into such leagues?
It is a hard question because we obviously don't know how they run their leagues. The ESL for example I understand that we didn't get the chance there because we were not announced team back then. The same with E-League, but at least we were hoping to at least get the chance to qualify FaceIt. I obviously knew that it was a long shot to get an invite and we didn't expect to get an invite. But I wouldn't say that it has really affected us, because at the same time we choose to create a new organization, to create a new brand and I understand that they are a business; they will invite organizations that have a big following. And [we] havent proved anything as a team yet. I just hoped that we would at least get a chance to qualify but what can we do?! We just gonna try to get in next season.
And performing like this on such an event is a great way to start I think. Anything else you want to say to your fans, as obviously you earned a lot of them here.
Yeah, I just want to thank everyone that are here in Malmo supporting us and also everyone at home for supporting us with everything they do, so thank you for them… and csgoskins.net and G2A big thanks to them as well.
