MSL: "We had a great bootcamp"

Our next interview from the ELEAGUE Major features Mathias "MSL" Lauridsen, whose North defeated HellRaisers in an overtime battle on Mirage earlier today.

After the first two rounds, North were at a 0-2 record following Cobblestone losses to fnatic and Gambit. Today they survived the elimination match against HellRaisers, where they prevailed at 19-15 on Mirage.

We talked to Mathias "MSL" Lauridsen about North's three matches so far at the ELEAGUE Major, the Danes' preparation, and his record at the Majors.
