FalleN: "I feel like I could be giving more"

May 19th, 2018 21:44

We interviewed Gabriel "FalleN" Toledo on the semi-finals day in Dallas to get his perspective on the in-game leadership change within SK, as well as their first playoffs finish with the new lineup, and their busy schedule in the coming weeks.

After bombing out in groups at the first two events, DreamHack Masters Marseille and IEM Sydney, the new SK made their first playoffs appearance at ESL Pro League Season 7 Finals before losing to FaZe for the first time in a series, in the quarter-finals.

The whole team came to the press area on the semi-finals day, so we grabbed Gabriel "FalleN" Toledo to hear his perspective on the recent change in leadership, his dip in performance as of late, and the team's busy schedule ahead:

With them going to Immortals in July, kinda makes it hard for Brazilian CS with KNG (one of the best Brazilian players) and Hen1 and Lucas1 being unable to play for Immortals again. You could make 2 decent teams with a combo of SK, NTC and the twins

Yes. Best awper ever is garbage. Ok.
2018-05-20 04:15
Best awper ever? kennyS (dominant for way too long) GuardiaN (relevant for longer than Brazil's CS scene) Fallen is good. But not the best ever
2018-05-20 12:18
Ok. I will be honest with you and say kennys was pretty fucking badass 2 or 3 years ago. I can see why many of you think he is the awp goat. But fallen's peak is incredible. He actually looked like he was using wall and could predict other's teams next steps and stuff, always hitting impossible shots and clutching the fuck out of everyone. For 2 straight years. Although guardian is very consistent and a god at holding default angles and hitting the shots he is supposed to hit, his lack of creativity and versatility makes him one step further from kennys and fallen. It's just my 2 cents on it, though.
2018-05-20 15:30
kennyS peak>fallen peak Kenny looked like he was spinbotting
2018-05-20 15:33
sure, awp was way more powerful in 2014, kennyS after the awp nerf wasn't that impressive anymore. i agree, kenny was a better awper, but not an better player than FalleN. we can compare kenny to NiKo and FalleN to coldzera. NiKo has better skill and coldzera is smartest and a good aim. P.S: kenny was really a beast on Titan XD

He's 26. For sure not a young player but far from the age that starts limiting your capablities in the game. He can still have 2 more pretty solid years before he hits that stage.

Acorda você cara! Ele não é seu empregado e nem sócio torcedor da SK você é. Tenho certeza que o dinheiro que ele ganha não vem do seu bolso. Para de reclamar. Gostando ou não é o que tem. Sem eles nenhum time brasileiro teria chegado no TOP10. Espero que não seja mais um dos retardados que vão xingar os caras no twitter.

Communicating in english is fucking them up. It slows their thought process and reaction timings. Even though Stewie has grown as a player, taking a dominant imposing role, the rest of the team has dropped drastically.
