We got hold of Wiktor "TaZ" Wojtas following ESC Gaming's defeat to Ninjas in Pyjamas and discussed with the Polish veteran his team's campaign at Mad Catz.
After coming out on top of the SLTV StarLadder and the CS:GO tournament at IEM Poland, ESC Gaming were denied entry into the Mad Catz final after losing to NiP on two maps (16-8 de_dust2_se, 16-12 de_inferno_se).
The Polish side were then inflicted more misery in the bronze final, this time by VeryGames, as a 2-1 defeat at the hands of the French team saw them finish outside the bubble.
In this 11-minute long interview, Wojtas talks about the defeats to NiP and n!faculty, the players' obsession with stats against weaker sides and the difference between the way the team play on LAN and online. He also comments on NiP's dominance in the CS:GO scene, stating that it is "killing the game".
