Team Secrets kvindehold vandt Counter-Strike: Global Offensive-turneringen ved Copenhagen Games i weekenden, og i den forbindelse talte vi med Julia "Juliano" Kiran og Zainab "zAAz Turkie om deres sejr, og hvordan de opnåede den.
Da vi spurgte hvordan de forberedte sig, så svarede zAAz:
"We practiced a lot and played on our freetime. Like we always do before all other tournaments."
"It was like our usual prep for every event, 5-6 hours a day, starting every day with going through new stuff or changes/improvements from previous practices,"</i> tilføjede Juliano.
Siden dette var anden gang i streg at Secret løftede Copenhagen Games-trofæet spurgte vi hvordan det føltes at vinde endnu en gang:
"Amazing, so amazing I can't even put words to it, and confirmation that all the hard work we and I put into it paid off, fortalte Juliano.
"It felt great, can't describe the feeling when you are up stage winning and feeling satisfied by your team performance. [It[ feels like another goal has been completed," tilføjede zAAz.
Begge sagde desuden, at konkurrenterne også leverede ved turneringen:
"It was good, I really liked that it was so so many female teams participating, it feels like its getting more and more teams each year which makes me happy," sagde zAAz
Juliano derimod var glad for konkurrencen:
"I'd say there was some competition, more than previous events and we definitely saw more teams proving themselves on LAN. Fun to see more teams having the chance to shine too. But there was not enough pressure that we couldn't handle, as we didn't drop a single map the whole event and we never felt like we could lose."
Ifølge begge spillere er det fokus og selvtillid der er nøglen til holdets sejr:
</i>"I would say that we are all talented players that are willing to put a lot of effort into the game to become better as players and as a team. We all have same goals and that's the key to success. I'd say definitely the hard work we put and all the talent in each player. The girls I play with listen well and understands me and my vision of the game, enough for us to keep our level and work together to get better. It's really a mix of every player and what they contribute with, also our high confidence is key."</i>
