How do you feel about today's matchup?
We knew MVP was a strong team, and we realized that once again as we were fighting against them today. I think our victory today is a really valuable one.
You went through all five games. Why do you think the fight was so tough today?
We were not as flexible in coming up with countermeasures. We had to swap heroes accordingly depending on situation, but we missed the right moment to do so. That left us unable to make pushes when necessary.
You showed really good plays with Widowmaker and McCree today.
My teammates set up things really well for me. All I had to do was to shoot because they did so well.
Your next matchup is against EnVyUs. Does that give you any pressure?
I don't feel pressure. I am rather excited about it and really looking forward to playing against them. I think playing against the best Overwatch team in the world would give us an idea of how good of a team we are.
What are your plans for your matchup against EnVyUs?
We play aggressively. We will push hard with relentless attacks like we did today.
What is your goal in this season?
We will first have to get past quarterfinals, but our goal is of course to win the tournament.
Any last words?
I wish more people would be interested in Meta Athena. Please keep it up for us.
