Here’s a post-match interview with Evos Icon Manager Brickell Malone Maitimu, Sentius “Barnstormer” Ivan Adriato and Head Coach Tessista Caleb.
How does it feel to win this event?
Adriato ‘Barnstrength‘: It was a tough match because we weren’t prepared enough, but we managed to take an early lead and eventually win. I’m proud of the whole team.
Coach Caleb: I knew it was going to be a tough match, but the team did a great job. I’m proud of them.
Manager Maitimu: I thought we were a good team, so I was looking forward to it. It means a lot to me to be the first team to win a world championship.
What was your toughest match on the way to the final?
Adriato ‘Vanstrong’: The final against Echo Proud was the toughest match. Both teams were equally skilled, so it was a battle to the end, and I think we got lucky.
What strategy did you prepare for the final, and which players did you consider to be key players?
Caleb: We had some idea of their strategy, and we knew what to expect from Banpik, so we had a good flow. The player I was expecting was our captain, Barnstrength, because he’s good at mind control and he’s a fun player to watch.
You were up 2-0 and then conceded the equalizer. How did you try to overcome the crisis?
Adriato ‘Anti-Strong’: I felt anxious, but I tried to stay calm and focus like I always do, and I used mind control to win.
In that intense fifth set, what were the circumstances that gave you the confidence to win?
Adriato ‘Barnstorm’: I didn’t know the outcome 바카라 until the very end, but the moment I won the last lord fight, I knew I was going to win.
How much confidence does this win give you in your team, and would you participate in the next WCG if it were held again?
MightyMoo Manager: I’ve always believed in the team and will continue to do so. I’ll have to talk to the other officials about participating in the next tournament, but I would definitely participate if given the opportunity.
Lastly, would you like to say hello to your fans?
Coach Caleb: I want to thank everyone for their support, and I hope to see you next time.
Adriato ‘Barnstrength’: Thank you for your support and we will come back bigger and better next time.
