karrigan: "It is my biggest win [ever]"

We got to talk to one of the winners of CCS Kick-off Season Finals, Finn "karrigan" Andersen, about TSM's triumph in Bucharest.

After breaking the top four curse for good yesterday, TSM went all the way in the final as well, and only dropped one map, while beating fnatic on both their picks for a 3-1 overall victory.

Here's the winning interview with Finn "karrigan" Andersen, where he talks about breaking the curse and getting to win again after nearly three years from his time in fnatic in Counter-Strike 1.6.

He went on to share his thoughts on the current meta, where everyone needs to bring frags to the table to be able to win tournaments, how his mid-round calls have been steadily improving throughout his time in TSM and more.

One more piece of our coverage is still missing before we conclude our content from Bucharest, Romania, which is a cherry on top in the form of Toby "TobiWan" Dawson and his eight-minute long interview.

This was totally faked by illuminati. Danes never won a title and it will not happen till 2036
2015-04-27 03:24
Dno where you are getting your sources from. But Denmark is probaly the country of "gaming". If you see how few people we are here. And i believe we have some CS Titles. You got to be pretty messed up if you don't know that. "Google > How Stupid Can I Be" You are welcome.

The guy is the most awkward interviewer ever and not in a good (read funny) way.

2015-04-27 07:26
you've got to be joking. He was very good, sure. Always admired him, particularly because of his game sense. One of the rare breed of players who actually have brains inside their skull. But a top5 1.6 player? Come on...
2015-04-27 10:37
He was one of the very best, just like moddi was.
2015-04-27 11:23
All time top5 ofc not definately top5 post-2011.

2015-04-27 07:58
you should say the top 4 teams putin vodka pls
2015-04-27 09:26
You dont need 20 shit teams if you can do a top 4 teams tournament and not lose your live streaming shit games.

The elite teams are all that matters anyway. Lumping an extra 12 tier 2/3 teams in there doesn't make the competition harder.
2015-04-27 10:11
It makes the competition more exhausting. And that is a different competition. That would really show who is the boss in the house.
2015-04-27 13:19
Well there were plenty more teams who just didn't qualify.. This was the 'finals'
2015-04-27 14:25
Playing online from their houses, couple matches per day, that is different.
2015-04-27 19:28
Yo. Fall back and go drink your vodka bro.

Really enjoying watching TSM rise up and meet the vast expectations people have set for them. I would definitely put them on equal standing with VP and Na'Vi at this point. CSGO scene's competition is really starting to bloom now ... in EU at least :^)

biggest win in the smallest tournament
2015-04-27 13:25
With Top 3 teams participating. Imo this is nearly as good as an ESL One title.
2015-04-27 13:45
There were more teams that didn't qualify for the 'finals'. Get your facts straight first
2015-04-27 14:29
woops that was a reply to 90 ^^
2015-04-27 14:47
I cant really say that envy nip and fnatic are better than VP and Na VI at the moment.Still a great and deserved win for tsm :).

It seems that TSM have won 3 majors in a row, they are acting like we are top 1 now...please it was a very minor tournament, jesus...
2015-04-27 13:46
obviously you dont follow them very much... they are doing an amazing campaign with great matches. They haven't won more jet because of the lag of experience or luck
2015-04-27 13:54
of the lag of experience or luck ' lag of experience '
2015-04-27 15:13
[ever]!
2015-04-27 13:51
Current meta LOL. In fnatics case that just = BUY BUY BUY.. What's that we have 1.5k BUYYYY.
2015-04-27 14:12
biggest win? well it's also the only win
2015-04-27 14:44
It was good by TSM but lets be honest. Fnatic are slumping hard right now just coming off a loss to VP at ESEA. If TSM DIDNT win than they would probably have never had another chance again.
2015-04-27 14:56
how much?
2015-04-27 15:16
I dont even play csgo let alone waste my time on skins. Also, "how much" isnt funny anymore.
