seang@res: "I love playing EU teams"

Misfits have locked down their first two matches at ESL Pro League Season 6 Finals and we caught up with Sean "seang@res" Gares to learn about his team's recent improvement and changes, and their win over North earlier today.

Misfits are currently 2-0 in Group B in Odense after the American-French squad defeated NRG 16-11 on Overpass and pulled off an upset over North on Cobblestone 16-9.

After their first two matches, Sean "seang@res" Gares discussed various topics regarding the team's recent events, such as the Americas Minor where Misfits made the grand final and secured a spot at the Main Qualifier.

We naturally also quizzed him about the importance of ESL Pro League Season 6 Finals ahead of the next stage of the Major cycle, Misfits' improvement on Cobblestone and their win on it versus North.

You can find the rest of's videos by going to our Twitch channel here.

I think he just loves good quality counter strike, that's why he prefers EU CS, unlike the unpredictable and undisiplined US CS.

He has been playing good at this tournament c'mon dude
2017-12-05 22:57
ofc he does, because they dont relay just on the aim like NA teams and dont do stupid rushes, which is work just in NA

Oh! I didn't remember Swedish snowflake boy being this toxic! Yikes!!
2017-12-05 22:47
Sweden 4Sweeeden 
Toxic? xD I was just joking around lol. All tho NA scene isnt really that good, C9/Liquid are the only 2 good NA teams tbh (Sure Misfits are proving something at this LAN tho)
2017-12-05 22:49
All tho Swedish scene isnt really that good, NiP/Fnatic are the only 2 good Swedish teams tbh (Sure olof is proving something at this LAN tho)
2017-12-06 09:47
Lol, Swedish scene not that good? Nip literally just won Oakland. We've been the country with Most tournament wins every year, even last year when we had a "bad" year. We have 4 major titles. No other country comes close to us. 10 million people live here, how many live in America?
2017-12-06 10:58
Sweden 4Sweeeden 
+1 /Close
2017-12-06 11:35
Denmark is close tho, but we dont have that many big tournaments.
2017-12-06 20:46
Australia KatVian 
Yeah Denmark has 3 good teams aswell. Sweden has 2. Denmark have traditionally been more consistent then Sweden also but they have fallen off recently. I am interested to see how fanatic go in bo3s though.
2017-12-06 22:42
That's just not true. Traditionally Sweden has been way more consistent. In all CS versions, even CSGO.
2017-12-07 11:00
it doesnt matters the amount of people living, but the amount of cs players on the community. sweden has been addicted to cs since the beginning

arrogant fgt lul
2017-12-05 22:47
well, he's right. Playing against a rubbish gamestyle on NA where it relies too much on raw skill makes strats hard to interpret and to counter. It is a compliment when he says that eu teams are more readable because of its way more structured gamestyle compared to NA
2017-12-05 23:20
+1 someone have IQ on hltv? damn :P <3
2017-12-05 23:54
Rly requires IQ to see this xD common fucking knowledge and sense bruh
2017-12-07 20:49
Well if you look through the comments you will get it.
2017-12-07 22:40
just kids trolling/baiting (or whatever the new word is = act retard) what I see
2017-12-08 09:05
yeah u think they have IQ if they go around baiting and shit? :P
2017-12-08 19:54
well I do actually, I might be digging a hole to myself :D
2017-12-08 20:11
hahaha okay just my opinion XD i think if all you do is baiting/trolling u need to get ur life togheter hahah

2017-12-05 22:50
WP Sean, looked like he needed to pee the whole interview but his voice masked it pretty well. Anyways, gl Misfits.
2017-12-05 22:56
Love seeing those HLTV's retards reaction to the title when they didnt even listen to the interview,what a bunch of clown
2017-12-05 22:59
After Misfits lost to LG in the ECS Promotional tournament, is when we finally saw some significant improvements out of Misfits. Perfect time to peak for them. Hopefully it carries over to 2018

2017-12-06 17:13
Shitgares was still on those rosters
2017-12-07 08:34
Yes, but EchoFox? With ryx, roca and freakazoid? At this time, G2 & VP were very strong, btw. Don’t forget this. And it’s in 2016. You can’t base a real analysis on bo1s with 2/5 of the lineup against 2 of the 5th best teams at that time.
