Andreas "znajder" Lindberg shared his thoughts on GODSENT's 16-8 win on Cache against OpTic and their issues in the previous matches.
A fairly straight-forward victory against OpTic, was a there specific plan that you had for Cache?
Maybe not for Cache specifically, but we talked after these two bad T games we had versus EnVyUs and Gambit, we felt like our T sides were lacking because we didn't revenge frag as we should. We kept overthinking things and took stupid 1v1's all the time, so we talked about that mainly. I feel like we fixed that today, we went a lot more together, it was simple, had better communication as well, we pointed that out after the game yesterday that we really didn't talk enough.
What about the CT side, the first three rounds went the other way but otherwise it was a comfortable affair...
CT side wasn't as nice to play as it maybe looked like for the fans, they seem to be really prepared on their T side on Cache, and we haven't had lots of practice on Cache. But we were stable on it, us five as players, but they had a really really strong B attack where they just exploded. I could throw one smoke and then I think RUSH was in my face or something, so it wasn't comfortable at all, but we learned a lot from them.
Were you surprised with Cache/Dust2 coming out? You share a very strong map with them, Train...
Not really, we hoped they would leave Train in instead of Dust2, but we knew it would be Train, Dust2 or Cache, so nah, not really surprised. But Cache wasn't what we were hoping for.
Going forward, you have one more round ahead of you, do you have a preference in which teams you'd like or wouldn't like to meet?
I would like to beat the shit out of Pimp, actually, but nah, not really, I think we're prepared for everything today.
