After the DOTA pit League, cybersports.ru I interviewed alliance's manager and talked about the team's attitude towards the game and how it felt about the results.
Q: "You don't want to beat us," CEB used to say to other teams before the game Do you feel scared when alliance faces og?
A: Of course not. How can our players be afraid of a cruel word. I don't think any professional player in the world would be afraid of such words. In the game, the players just think "mammoths are not big, mammoths are not big" instead of "Wow, he's a double champion, what he said on social media sounds great."
Q: What about alliance's players?
A: Yeah, after all, players have to learn to resist pressure. Of course, if you are willing to respond, you can also respond in the game.
Q: What did the players do during the off-season?
A: Everyone is resting, but still maintaining a certain intensity of training. The top management doesn't want the players to work so hard, but they always say "fast, fast, last".
Q: Let's talk about the DOTA pit League just finished. What are your expectations for this competition before the game?
A: It's not very demanding. Just play. The main reason is that this game is after the off-season and major version update, so many teams, including us, play this game in order to warm up Omega League and observe the status of other opponents.
Q: But as we can see, you're only one step away from making nigma two times and three times over in the final. Did the players feel very depressed after the game?
A: It's OK. There's no negative emotions. It's mainly because it's too tired for BO3 + bo5 to be full on this day, but on the whole, the atmosphere of the team is still very good, and the game itself is very interesting. Handsken said at the end of the game that we could have left the field seven hours ago, but since we're in the game, we have to finish it.
Q: Have you ever worried that the runner up will make the team proud?
A: I believe my players have a clear sense of themselves. Especially in the online competition, a short success or failure can not explain any problems, offline can see the real chapter. And there's no secret in this pit League, not all of nigma. Even if we win the championship, we won't be carried away by it.
Q: Look ahead to the Omega League. Are you satisfied with this group?
A: There is nothing to be satisfied with. In such a gathering of European giants, any group is the death group. Secret, nigma, og and other strong teams, how you distribute them will be dissatisfied. I would like to face greater challenges.
Q: Finally, let's talk about the number five fng on loan. What do you think of his performance and what are your follow-up plans?
A: As a matter of fact, I can't disclose any other information. All I can say is that we have renewed his contract. As for whether to buy it out, he still depends on further changes in the situation. Everything will be OK!
