Richard "shox" Papillon was our next interviewee at EPICENTER 2017 following G2's triumph against Astralis in Group B. The in-game leader talked ELEAGUE Premier playoffs failure, the weeks leading up to the St. Petersburg event, and the Astralis match.

G2 have stepped into EPICENTER with the right foot, defeating Astralis after a close battle on Cache and a one-sided Inferno.

We caught up with Richard "shox" Papillon after the series to find out what had happened at ELEAGUE Premier, where G2 went out in the quarter-finals, and how his confidence as an in-game leader affected the team at the time.

Together with the in-game leader, we naturally also went over G2's win over Astralis with focus on Cache and the difficult start, when Andreas "Xyp9x" Højsleth clutched a 1v4 in the pistol round that led to a 9-2 lead for the Danes.

G2, Astralis, NiP - most boring teams to watch nowadays, pure cancer I would say, did I forgot about someone else?
2017-10-24 17:31
G2 is fine, why? NiP is just pure shit team. Astralis is decent top3. I don't know why you put NiP here, lul
2017-10-24 17:36
I am not talking about their performances. I am just talking about the fact, that it is boring af to watch G2. There is no charisma in that team (same as NiP, Astralis).
2017-10-24 17:38
then go watch teams who have that, freaking retard, no charisma in team LMAO
2017-10-24 18:04
Pull that dick out of your ass and learn how to behave monkey. <3 kennyS explains everything
2017-10-24 18:37

2017-10-24 18:38
Whatever, at least they are fun to watch. Not spoiled 30kg kids like in G2.

You don't talk to the teams or listen to them why the fuck does their charisma matter in CS:GO at all?

I’m a g2 fan but I agree. Their play styles are just exhausting to watch. Really no fun at all, from the perspective of the viewer
