Player Cloud9 Jake “Stewie2k” Yip talked about the reasons for not being out of the group on ESL Pro League Season 5 and about personal progress in recent months. In an interview with the cybersport portal, Yip also shared his thoughts about changing the game leader in the team.

About the reasons for absenteeism from the group

“I think it’s just a lack of motivation. I understand that it is rather difficult to say from the side why it is not, because you play video games for pleasure. But how many of you guys have too much of something and are ready to end this? We do not want to end with Counter-Strike. We have not burned out, but we need to find some motivation in each of us. I’m always thrilled with CS. This is my passion, and I live by the game. But the rest of the players … I think everyone needs a little rest, and then come back, neglect problems and just play their game. “

About personal progress

“When I first joined the team, I acted too individually. I liked walking and replaying people. Sometimes I reviewed my demos, I was pretty risky. Over time, I began to play more structured, to act on the team. But, looking at collectives like SK Gaming, you can see that there players do not play against each other.

I do not want to say that they do not have a structure, but it seems to me that everyone does what he wants there. FalleN, coldzera and TACO act passively, and fer and felps do what they want, and thus open the rounds. As for my game, I want to be like fer, but there must also be a lot of teamwork here. “

On the change of the game leader in the team

“Despite the fact that Tim [Timothy” autimatic “Ta] is an inexperienced coordinator, he is still good. For example, I’m an adherent of free style, while he’s all structured. If we mix this, then we will have a good team. Tim’s coordination is a little generalized, so I have a lot of ideas on this, but it will take a lot of time, which we do not have. Now we are all focused on a minor tournament. ” ESL Pro League Season 5 was held from May 30 to June 4 at the Verizon Theater, Dallas. Cloud9 took the last place in Group A with the statistics of matches 1: 4. In the final of the tournament G2 Esports won from North with a score of 3: 1 and got $ 225 thousand. The Danish team got $ 100 thousand.
