But, according to Robin, it would be better to develop CSGO-eSports in the direction of online competitions.

“Now a lot of LAN tournaments for players of professional scene. Every week goes something new. Players travel and never come home, that’s really hard, if you look at the problem from the angle of growth of their qualification. They simply have no time to exercise.”

Currently the Swede Fifflaren left pro-gaming career and now works for streaming giant Twitch. To do this he had to leave Sweden and settle on the other side of the Atlantic in the United States.

“I get a completely different experience in a different culture, a new country. And it’s fun!”

– So, when you plan to return to Sweden?

– “I have no plans to return, in fact” – Fifflaren, he said with a laugh.

You never know what will happen tomorrow. Right now I have a great mood and I do not see any reason to return back.

With Twitch on partnership terms, FACEIT recently launched a new giant project online league with 3.5 million prize pool – the largest ever in the history of Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. This initiative – one of the many powerful investments in the popular FPS-game (First Person Shooter). According to the analyst Fifflaren, in CSGO – a bright future. At the same time, he has some cause for concern.

“In this league ECS, we have received many professional online matches. Hopefully, the team will have more time for actual practice. Instead of three weeks of flights from four per month, they probably will have 3 weeks at home. And this, in my opinion, will contribute improve the quality of matches. In addition, we see that the recent increase in the number of gaming injuries. “

– As a leading expert in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, you have seen during Dreamhack Masters 2016 in Malmö as the fans at the Malmö Arena Sweden called “Homeland of Counter-Strike”.

– It’s amazing to see such a tremendous growth, even in comparison with 2013 year. Just look at the first major in 2013 Dreamhack Winter, when the finals were held in a small theater, and compare it with a completely filled Malmö Arena in 2016. And not only there! In Columbus, Cologne and in other arenas of the world. It’s really amazing!
