Welcome Pounh to #VwSCSGO: Starladder Minor Discussion
After the departure of Kreuw, the team has been doing surprisingly well with the help of a new player going by the name of pounh. With qualifying for the Starladder CIS Minor and hopefully the ESEA Mountain Dew League playoffs, the boys knew that these results weren't just luck. Feeling comfortable with the young player, they've decided to permanently fill Pounh in as the fifth man of the roster, heading into the 2017 season. To get into the mind of Eimantas 'pounh', he let us know how the team is feeling heading to Russia:
1. With the groups being revealed for the Minor, how confident do you feel heading into the group stage?
- The boys seem to be confident even though playing on LAN is extremely different from online matches. Honestly, playing against Tornado Rox can be scary as I know liTTle can change the outcome of the game by himself.
2. How prepared are you and the team, both strategically and mentally?
- We're feeling fairly good as staying confident and calm is very important when at an event. We had to work on our strategies as we're sure teams have watched our demos and analyzed our tendencies and how we like to play.
3. Who do you think your biggest opponent is out of all seven teams?
- In my opinion, our biggest opponent is by far Team Spirit; we believe they're the strongest team at the event.
4. If you could predict the two teams that qualify for the ELEAGUE Major qualifiers, who would it be?
- If I couldn't count us as one of the teams that will qualify, the finals should be Team Spirit against Tornado Rox.
Nikolaj 'kAliNkA' even let us in on what he thinks about the event:
"We feel very confident and comfortable with our group. We've played against the players we're soon to face so we know what to expect. We've been training hard for this event because we understand this is the chance to make a name for ourselves. Sure, we have a new player in the team (Pounh) but he blends into the team very well so our mentality is quite strong. The biggest opponent is without a doubt Team Spirit and Hooch's team s4s. However, I believe the two teams that will go to the ELEAGUE 2017 qualifiers will be Spirit and VwS. #KALINKAPREDICTIONS!"
