Conquest: "Crowd kept us hyped"

We spoke with two Conquest members, Shahzeb 'ShahZaM' Khan and Damian 'daps' Steele, to talk about the team's first offline appearance and subsequent entry into the semifinals.

Conquest have been the Cinderella-esque story of this tournament following an overtime inferno against Virtus.pro, a 2-0 victory over Liquid, and a 2-1 defeat of dignitas to make the CEVO Season 8 semifinals.

We gathered Shahzeb "ShahZaM" Khan and Damian "daps" Steele to talk about the team's formation as well as the match against dignitas and the homecrowd which cheered for the North American team.

More of our interviews from CEVO Season 8 as well as other HLTV.org videos can be found on our Youtube channel here.

Do you have any idea what Shahzam said when Daps said there were no sponsors? Not your fault but you failed to swing the mic in time.

Ah ok, just that Shahzam seemed to laugh at his own joke so I was wondering what it was. :/
