Auch mit dem InGame-Leader von Cloud9, Maikil 'Golden' Selim konnten wir am ersten Playoffs-Tag der ESL Pro League Finals in Montpellier sprechen. Leider verweigerte er jeglichen Kommentar zur aktuellen Performance des Teams sowie zu den Themen der Gerüchteküche.
readmore: You have been playing in North America for quite some time now. How different is the NA scene compared to Europe?
Golden: „The difference is that people have very different styles, different communications. Communication is probably the biggest difference for me, especially what you should communicate and what you should not communicate. It might be less but more precise, in NA it is more but less. Both ways have pros and cons.“
readmore: There has been a lot of criticism towards the seeding and tournament format at ESL events lately. What is you take on the matter and how would you change/improve the format?
Golden: „I haven’t thought about it that much. I just do not like that you can go out on the first day, that’s too much. You travel from North America to France to play only one Best-of-One and a Best-of-Three. And even if you win that Bo3 you have to play two more the next day, just to get out of the Lower Bracket. And if you win the first Best-of-one and the following Bo3, you are already in the playoffs. What does that mean?“
readmore: What are your opinions on the most recent update on the AUG? Is the gun now balanced or is there still some work to do?
Golden: „So, I tried it for 30 seconds, but I thought of it that it does not matter much, because you can still hold an angle with the AUG, with the scope. That was the main reason. If it fires a bit slower, it actually makes the spray pattern easier to control. What’s the fix for me? I would make it more expensive in addition to the recent update.“
