Wiktor "TaZ" Wojtas was interviewed by the SLTV StarSeries organisation after ESC Gaming's triumph in Kiev last week.
The Polish giants finally broke their duck and won their first international event since switching to CS:GO by defeating Virtus.pro in the SLTV Starseries Grand Final to walk away with a $6,000 cheque.
There had been doubts that the former 1.6 team would ever be successful in the new game after they crashed out in the group stage at ESWC and DreamHack Winter.
After a promising runners-up finish at AMD Sapphire in Prague, ESC Gaming's victory in Kiev was proof that the team has finally turned a corner and put those difficult months behind them.
This interview touches on several different subjects, such as the current state of the team, Filip "Neo" Kubski's performances and also Wojtas' own opinion about CS:GO, which seems to have considerably improved.
It's good to see taz enjoying himself.

Soon enough there'll be exactly two former CS:S players on the top 10 of CS:GO tournaments: fifflaren and friberg, who'll probably get replaced soon enough anyway.
And out of the 4 teams most likely to beat NiP first, only one of them is a 1.6 team (ex Mouz, ESC, Curse, VG)
Therefore the source players in the best team in go are obviously 'bad'.
Something I've learnt. Don't try to insert logic into a 1.6 fanboy discussion.
VeryGames, ex-mouse(rattlesnk & co.), Area51(with 2 1.6'ers) and alot of good team just behind the top.
Good CS 1.6 teams in CS:GO:
ESC, NiP(with two source players), Curse(with one source player)
I think it's pretty even. ;)
But I do think that there are more source teams right behind the top.
dazed and tck are the source player
Being part of Golden 5 is such a dream to live!
laughed hard :D

sad, 64mb graphic card and so on.. lol
Most individually skilled team would have to go to SK or fnatic.
Most dominant team in any one year in CS History if you put quality and quantity of competition into perspective(and the largest margin win difference) - has to go to wNv
