JW: "Came in with fresh minds today"

Jesper "JW" Wecksell gave us an interview about fnatic's route through ESL One Cologne so far, losing to FaZe and sending G2 home.

fnatic had a rough start into the Major, falling to the elimination match at the hands of FaZe in the only big upset of day one, according to most.
Today, they managed to survive the elimination match with a close Train victory over G2, which included multiple clutches and a full-eco-round win for the Swedish side at the very end.
Hit play below to see what Jesper "⁠JW⁠" Wecksell had to say on how the team felt after the FaZe match, how confident they were going up against G2 and what lies ahead - a re-match with FaZe:

"We are used to win so easily everytime" - true story, Also like I've been saying. Just give fnatic a little more time and they will eventually do a 16-0 Luminosity like they did before. And take the #1 spot they deserve. Cause they're arguably the best team ever in the CS history. NiP is close behind but not now they used to. NiP is still tho being top5 best team and eventually hit the 2-3 spot beside SK.

Happy to see that FNC is back on their game, olof is still a little bit off but the rest of the team is finally going strong. If they manage to win against FaZe (most likely) and they find a qfinals against VP or Gambit they have a high chance of wining this tournament

SK got disqualified from the E-League tournament, not the ESL major. Even though, you can't change your organization in the middle of the tournament and as Lum didn't show a new lineup they were both disqualified.
