kennyS: "Comeback on Overpass very important"

After G2's triumph at ESL Pro League Season 5 Finals, we got a hold of the tournament's MVP, Kenny "kennyS" Schrub, to interview him about the grand final against North and upcoming events.

G2 began the grand final by winning two maps in a row, a narrow Cache and a one-sided Cobblestone, before falling short on Overpass despite a huge comeback attempt (from 2-14 to 14-16) and clinching the title with a 16-3 scoreline on Inferno.

In our interview with one of the winners and the Most Valuable Player of the event, Kenny "⁠kennyS⁠" Schrub, we discussed the grand final and G2's events in the near future:

agreed, it is kind of confusing
2017-06-07 03:19
North is a decent EU team, and the fact that G2 had to beat both SK and fnatic to win this event, was impressive enough to solidify them as a top3 team

Top 3 after this? Nah mate.

They are definitely among the 4 best teams in the world atm. In no order, the only tier 1 teams are SK, G2, Astralis and FaZe. They can all beat eachother at any given Sunday. FaZe usually beats Astralis. SK usually beats FaZe G2 usually beats SK Astralis usually beat G2
2017-06-05 10:33
Honestly G2 had a tough path, beating Envyus, SK, and fnatic in groups, then 2-0 SK before spanking North. North did have an easy path but anybody from Group B was going to, tbh.

Its hard to say. Just like SK , G2 relays too much on individual performances... Like , Sk didnt Win this because coldzera played way below his averege ... If carryS stops showing up for some reason , G2 Will be way less powerfull

Yeah, the much I watched the final it was the same story all over again. Some player in G2 makes a ridicilous solo play to win a round. And yeah looking at the scoreboard coldzera didnt show up at all vs G2. If he'd be on top of their team as usual, the result would have been very different.

I have to disagree, yes kennys hit a lot of shots but he didn't actually made insaaane plays which saved the round or maps etc, it was really a team effort with good team plays, good angles, crossfires etc. So saying they only relied on kennys isn't true imo

Not saying it was kennys. Sometimes apex, sometimes bodyy, sometimes shox. 1 player making insane shit almost every round.
2017-06-05 20:24
Looking at the results between G2 and North in the past half year or so, North should be at least as good as G2. This could easily have been a much closer match.
2017-06-05 10:28
G2 x SK Gaming, we saw who's the best awper in the world currently. But for now, G2 is the best team in the world, with a wide map pool.

Because of one game he couldn't even carry? Nice try, and where was he in the past 6 months? Thought so.

FalleN, the monster, the IGL, is coming back, the best AWPer in the world, the 2nd best player of 2016.
2017-06-07 17:13
G2 is not the best team in the world and their cache and overpass needs a lot of work just beating the 3rd best team in the world is not enough to be the best
2017-06-05 05:10
They won a tournament without best 2 teams, that means that they are 3rd best case scenario, but I will consider them just top 4 atm
2017-06-05 10:32

Definitely max top 4.

Gotta say Striker has come along way as an interviewer. Feels weird seeing any CSGO interview conducted by anyone but Striker. Either way GGWP kenny & company. G2 is looking good.
