xccurate: "Our communication is a mix, half Chinese and half English"

We talked to Kevin "xccurate" Susanto after Tyloo picked up a stunning win over fnatic during the second day of StarSeries i-League S4.

TYLOO suffered a defeat in their opening match of the tournament, losing 2-0 to FaZe in a very one-sided series. However, the Asian squad managed to bounce back today, shocking fnatic with a 2-0 victory on Cobblestone and Inferno.

xcurrate's AWP was on point on Inferno

In our interview with Kevin "xccurate" Susanto, we discussed TYLOO's upset over the Swedes, their play in Asia and the communication issues.

You just finished your match against fnatic, how are you feeling after this win?

We are feeling really, really happy now, because yesterday we were not really in our form, in our first match we fought probably the best team in the world, FaZe, we didn't have our confidence. We talked a lot, practiced a lot after the match yesterday and today we have our form back.

Going into the matchup against fnatic, what was the preparation like, what were you expecting to play?

Actually, we didn't expect fnatic to ban Cache, but we watched a lot of how fnatic play on Cobblestone and Inferno. I know that on Inferno fnatic is really good, they know how to get control of the map, but I said to our team that we should just do our default tactic and play with confidence, and we just did it.

Cobblestone is where it started, you got your first map win, what went right for you on that map?

Cobblestone is our best map, because in competitions in Asia we always play Cobblestone so we are comfortable on the map, that's why I think we played well there.

Inferno was fairly contested, back and forth, how did you see that one going and what was the key to closing it out?

At 14-14 we had a lot of miscommunication, it was a 2v1 that we lost, but I just shouted to the team "come on, we can do it, let's go boys, don't think about it", and we came back one by one, we read how they played. I told BnTeT to just control banana and then we stacked A, and it was working.

Coming into TyLoo you are now the in-game leader and the AWPer, so tell me how has that been working out? Is it hard to balance the two roles?

I still lack as an in-game leader because I'm still new to this level of competition, I'm a new guy. And the communication is also a bit hard, we just know basic Chinese, so our communication is a mix, it's half Chinese and half English.

Still, in Asia you have been doing well, there was the qualifier for this and IEM Katowice and you won both. So do you feel that you are the best team in Asia at the moment, even though you are a fresh roster right now and have communication issues?

I don't want to say that we are the best team in Asia, but... You can see from the results, I think people can judge us themselves.

You picked up a big win here, what are the expectations going forward from this point?

Our target here is the playoffs, we want to go to the playoffs. I think, our win against fnatic is very positive for us, because we got a lot of confidence right now. I think that we just practice after this, practice a lot.

i have heard that this very experienced polish guy "TaZ" is in free agency! maybe this newly formes team should bench an unexperienced player like "MICHU" and take the super experienced player "TaZ"! that team sounds like they could be scary, maybe get all the invites to tournaments? who knows.

They won against Fnatic, and they're not very good anymore lol.

ofc, ahaha i didnt expect them to be a consistant team, and for next match i'll prolly pick the other side just because tyloo hype is still going and dig for some penny out of there XD

Fnatic aren't good anymore? If we go by recent form such as the major, they seemed like a great competitor. Still a great achievement by tyloo

you should show enough respect to a language which you stupid imperfect eu races can never study well. Chinese is really not simple as easy english.
