Our third interview from the ELEAGUE Major features stand-in Ricardo "fox" Pacheco, whose SK won their first match in the Swiss format against HellRaisers.
Let's start with HellRaisers and Mirage that you just finished against them; fairly comfortable overall, is there anything you can point out from the match?
We didn't see their games, we just played our own game and believed in ourselves, that's it.
How much practice did you put in before the Major? How many days, hours per day, was there a bootcamp?
I can say that we played like 12-14 hours a day, about nine days, that was our preparation for this. We had a bootcamp in Cologne in the SK offices.
Considering you are a stand-in, how much did SK change their playstyle to accodomate you?
No, I'm just doing exactly what FalleN says for me to do. I don't care about playing the AWP, a rifle, Deagle or glock, I just do what the team wants and needs.
In your practice, did you notice any teams that looked especially good, on form?
Yeah, mousesports was the only team who did awesome results against us, the rest was like we won, we lost some, but mousesports was too hard to play against.
What are your personal and the team's goals here?
We are playing here to win, of course.
Your future is somewhat unknown at the moment, even though jkaem mentioned you two are making a new team. What can you tell us about your future?
We talked about that for a while, but I don't know about my future yet. I'm just focusing on the Major, I just want to win the Major.
