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.

SK have won their first match at the ELEAGUE Major after a comfortable affair against HellRaisers on Mirage.


SK put in lots of practice prior to the Major 

We caught up with their stand-in, Ricardo "fox" Pacheco, who shared how much SK played prior to the Major and what his and the team's goals are.

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.

fox did his job as standin for first match, hope he will continue doing it on next matches so people can't make him scapegoat again like on previous
2017-01-22 20:03
Exactly. He did his job indeed... and, to do a good job, you need to do YOUR job, and that's what 99% of this disabled community will never understand. 5 players ingame, a team, 5 roles. Even if taco or fox pull out a 2-20, if they win the game, they did their job. Being able to lure, sacrifice yourself or being a flash/smoke thrower, is a quality, and if that role is done correctly, i'm pretty sure it's going to be a walk in the park for everyone else. Every team needs "that guy". Teams pracctice what needs to be done ingame, no matter what. Real teams dont give a fuck about who flashes, who smokes, and who gets those 30kills per game easily thanks to the role of their mate. They care about winning, no matter what, and everyone has their role in that.

Exactly like fox said, and i quote: "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."

That's what chrisJ's fan said
2017-01-22 20:37
chrisJ best germanio player Kappa chrisJ on lan Keppo
2017-01-22 21:13
i cant even call fox an onliner considering hes just as shit as on lan
2017-01-22 21:34
He played great today, unlike mouseshit with chrishitJay
2017-01-22 23:16
well bot vs bot is always random so fox got lucky today
2017-01-22 23:17
Lol shut up, ChrisJ got destroyed, felt like I was watching a Global Elite vs Gold Nova match from how different the skill cap between teams was.
2017-01-22 23:19
y cuz chrisJ has anything to do with navi being 3 tiers better than mouz lmfao
2017-01-22 23:21
and what about now? fox back to being a bot and getting destroyed by faze while chrisJ played great vs hr. i mean it felt like I was watching a Global Elite vs Gold Nova match from how different the skill cap between the teams was
2017-01-23 18:59
Fox still did better than Taco ;). Didn't know Gold Nova teams were actually able to win against Global Elits :o.
2017-01-23 20:50
lmfao even i would do better than taco, you say that like it was an achievement btw chrisJ did better than niko yesterday, so whats your point
2017-01-23 20:53
But HOW does a GOLD NOVA TEAM, actually beats a GLOBAL ELITE TEAM? :ooo
2017-01-23 20:52
dont see what this has to do with fox being a bot
2017-01-23 20:56
I don't see how a team of gold nova ranks, wins against a global elite team. I seriously don't get it, isn't the skill cap that much different? :o
2017-01-23 21:40
no arguments left lmaooo
