NBK: "it takes time to change"

EnVyUs came out on top in their opening match of Gameshow Global Cup Finals in Vilnius against CLG. We talked to Nathan "NBK-" Schmitt to get a deeper look at the leadership changes happening in the team.

EnVyUs beat CLG two maps to one in a closer match than most people could have expected out of this match-up, with CLG taking the lead on de_overpass. nV won their pick (de_train) in convincing fashion, 6-16, and finally came back from behind to win the decider, de_cache, in a too close for comfort 16-13.

Nathan "NBK-" Schmitt gave us two cents on their veto process and talked about his duties as ingame leader, as well as Mathieu "Maniac" Quiquerez's role as coach now that the team has had some time to regroup after their semifinal loss to Na`Vi at SL i-League Starseries XIV Finals.

2016-02-05 13:22
Canadian team hasn't though... Using your logic I could just say "At least EU teams always win the tournaments"..

that guy doing interview is shaking at the beggining, also nbq reaction to people passing by xd
2016-02-04 14:48
Yup, I'm the guy behind the camera not in front. Not a big fan of being on the spot, to be honest, although I'm sure I'll get more comfortable as I do more.
2016-02-04 14:51
You did fine buddy.

Have to agree with others and i also understand cause you mentioned it that striker was doing some other things. Anyways even tho u we're kinda shaking at the beggining u was still able to talk normally which made me wonder would i be able to stay focused in that situation :D cheers
2016-02-04 15:50
I think you did a great job man. But nerves are understandable!

I actually liked this Lucas guy A LOT! He was pretty nervous, but since he doesn't do this, ever, I'm guessing it's only normal, so I can't wait for more from this lad!
