We have the pleasure to have with us Carzzy, ADC for MAD Lions after today’s match against G2 Esports. First congratulations on qualifying for Worlds! How does it feel to qualify for the biggest League of Legends tournament your second year in a row?
Hello! I feel great! We put a lot of work in the team, as a group of teammates, and even though we had kind of like three rough weeks now where things didn’t go our way and we had a lot of clashes maybe, it was pretty good today and we played out of our minds so I’m really happy with the result.
Today you went up against Rekkles, who said he’d bring an “opera of death” in playoffs, however you grabbed the win over G2. Do you think you stopping their momentum will heavily change the rest of their playoffs run?
I mean it’s G2 so you can never count them out, so we could see some comebacks and see them going back to finals, so it’s hard to say.
Definitely we’re better when playing Bo5 and I think we’re the fastest EU team to adapt against another team, so playing Bo5 against us would be quite scary.
Looking forward to next match we’ve got a spring finals rematch next saturday between you and Rogue. Will we see the same story? Or do you think Rogue could give you a hard time?
I think Rogue is gonna give us a hard time, but I have full trust in our team and I feel like we’re gonna bring it home once again!
One last thing I’d like to ask you today is related to somethig that Dylan said at the analyst desk after the third game,he said that for your team it was kind of expected to qualify for worlds almost immediatly and this would always put a lot of pressure on players. How much did this affect you and the rest of the team today?
To be honest I don’t think it affected anyone, we don’t feel pressure in Bo5, it’s more in the Bo1 where we’re struggling a bit. But once we’re in Bo5 I think everyone is feeling fully confident I d’ say. It’s pretty easy for us to play and win in Bo5.
Thank you Carzzy for you time and good luck on you next match!
MOBA, Open World, FPS, RPG and so much more! I appreciate any game with a good story behind it! Nowdays I write articles about games and competition but also organize and manage Esport tournaments.
