Maikelele: NiP let me do what I want

We sat down with NiP's new addition Mikail "Maikelele" Bill to talk about how he and the team have adapted to each other, their new playstyle and more in the following interview.

NiP had a rough going during the tournament, losing to LDLC in a close de_overpass match before they had to face off against ESC once again, that time on de_cache, which went down to the wire.

We only got a hold of Mikail "Maikelele" Bill right before the ESC match, so we only discussed the matches that happened until that point, but we also asked him about how he has adapted to NiP as well as the other way around, the NiP-mansion and surprises at the tournament.

Ladislav "GuardiaN" Kovács, whom we got a hold of after the bracket was drawn, will be day one's last interviewee before we jump into day two at DreamHack Winter 2014.

That's how you let a new member get confidence, it's a great start and smart choice of NiP. On to the future!
2014-11-28 04:23
I don't like the interviewers voice
2014-11-28 04:38
"NiP let me cheat"*
2014-11-28 05:07
"NiP only let me awp mid on cache"
2014-11-28 05:24
XD
2014-11-28 05:31
So getting boosted @ cache to spot mid is what he actually wants?
2014-11-28 05:57
Why not? ...

Sweden pyth 
yeah why would anyone want to get boosted especially if you have a awp >.< ...... xD
2014-11-28 08:09
That's pretty much everything he does. Constantly. I doubt he could catch anyone from this spot.
2014-11-28 08:15
You dont seem to get it at all. The reason to peek @ boost spot is not only to kill ppl but also to get mid ctrl which they did get
2014-11-28 09:39
Getting destroyed by ESC @ attacking side with a help of his uselessness? Yeah mid control definitely matters.
2014-11-28 10:17
Mid control is very important in Cache. If they didn't do anything with it afterwards is not Maikelele's fault.

If Maikelele becomes a permanent solution for NiP, which I Think he will be, they will probably change up their playstyle more in the future, atm they are basically just letting Maikelele take Fifflarens Place. Given the short time they've had together to prepare for this competition it's safe to say they didn't have time to change everything.
2014-11-28 08:48
+1 I too see every time their play style is still the same, mikail is playing as fiffys role but a bit aggressive one. Hope to see some change in future, as the do need now!
2014-11-28 09:39
and that's why they'll lose
2014-11-28 09:44
The interviewer is boring. Fire him.
2014-11-28 09:46
Well this one spoiled murican kid in the comments section ordered him to be fired, better fire him! Kappa Idiot

2014-11-28 10:04
Thanks for giving us interviews. Can you please shorten your question and try not to lead the subject so much. Best regards.
2014-11-28 10:12
Was thinking a similar thing, thanks ^^
2014-11-28 11:08
You are welcome!
2014-11-28 12:26
I need some time to figure out what I'm doing wrong, constructive criticism always helps. ;)
2014-11-28 13:54
agree! If maikelele do anything what he want - his team will win 90%. It's amazing awp, he must be agressive, he must be anywhere on the map
2014-11-28 10:27
He does what he wants when he wants. He's his own guy. NiP gaming & Maikelelelelelelelele
