Captain HellRaisers Cyril “ANGE1” Karasev in an interview with the portal HLTV told about the quarterfinals of SL i-League StarSeries Season 3 against North and the support of fans from the auditorium.
About the preparation for the match against North
“We tried different options for preparing for the rivals [in the SL i-League StarSeries Season 3]. Before the match against G2 Esports twice looked at each player’s demos, many rounds, but forgot about their game. Before North, we decided to relax a little, because it’s quite tiring to play all day, considering that we trained all day long [before the championship]. Therefore, we were not particularly prepared [for North], Our analyst singled out key information for us, which we read before the game, in order to understand how opponents are acting. “
On the won pistol and anti-eco rounds
“I think I’m just very good at guns (laughs). We focus on not losing forsbay and anti-eco. [In the match with North] did everything possible. Earlier we prepared similar rounds, so this can not be called an accident. This is how it should be on the LAN tournaments: the maximum concentration after the victory in the pistol round, in order to prevent a loss from fosby or eco. “
On the murder of team-mates during the matches
“We practice this a lot. In training, no card can do without timkilla, so this is normal, when in tournaments we make several similar frags. As a rule, bondik has zero on this indicator, because of what he is very angry (laughs). “
On the support of fans from the audience
“It’s always nice when the crowd supports you.” But I’ve been in this game for quite some time and I’ve seen how people are rooting for me and against me. Support is a big bonus for us, and minus for opponents. They begin to make mistakes, pressure is affected. “
In the quarterfinals of SL i-League StarSeries Season 3 HellRaisers won against North with a score of 2: 1 on the cards. In the semifinals, the team will play against FaZe Clan. The meeting is scheduled for April 9 at 12:00 Moscow time.
