In today’s elimination stage, Fenerbahçe defeats Brazil’s representative team, oNe eSports, convincingly. Showing robust and focus throughout their games, Fenerbahçe went 3:1 in the series. Confirming their place in the group stage.
After the match, Fenerbachçe’s Top laner, Thaldrin, was interviewed to see his thoughts on group placements and his performance in the game.
¤ How did you prepare coming into these games and was this how you expect it to go in the best of 5 series?
Yes.. but all I can say it that we expected to win the series. In my opinion, our gameplay was not the best and we made a lot of mistakes. We expected to close to series 3-0 but we made a lot of mistakes in the second game and we ended up losing one. Overall, I am happy but kind of upset about our teamplay as well.
¤ Last time we met, you told me you were going to finish top of groups and then you told me you were going to make it to the group stage. You’re now a prophet, Thaldrin. What is next for you guys? What is it going to take for FB to make it all the way to the grand finals?
This time it is going to be hard to make a forecast about our future. If we do get lucky in the draws, I think we can make it out of the main group stage. Overall, I think it is dependent on the draw because we are not the best team and we are aware of it. I don’t think we have enough time to fix our issues, but if we get lucky with the draws I think we have a shot in making it to the quarterfinals.
¤ Which group would you like to be seeded into or teams you want to play against in the World Championships?
As you know, we have 2 Koreans. These players played in Longzhu before so they want to play Longzhu. We all just want to play against Longzhu. I know it isn’t going to be an easy match. If I had to choose, I would want to go to Group B or D.. I don’t know.. We will see.
