hutji: "During his 1v1, chopper said 'no worries, guys, I'm going to punch him'"

We talked to Pavel "hutji" Lashkov after Vega Squadron picked up their second win in the New Challengers stage, beating BIG in overtime.

Vega Squadron are now 2-0 in the Swiss format after first coming back from a 3-12 deficit on Mirage against Spirit before taking down BIG in overtime on Train earlier today.

Vega Squadron are gaining confidence with every win

After the match, we grabbed hutji for an interview and asked him about Vega Squadron's first two matches and how they managed to come out on top of the close encounters:

Let's first go back to yesterday and your match against Spirit. What was the team's morale like after the tough first half and how did you come back from that?

The morale was good, we knew we could come back if we won the pistol round and not lose the anti-ecos like we often can (laughs) because we lose anti-ecos too much. So, the morale was good, everyone was focused on winning. We won a lot of clutches, so I think they choked after losing those clutches.

What did you think about the BIG matchup when you found out you were going to play against them in the second round?

It was a little bit aggressive after smooya's tweet about wanting Vega Squadron, the most dangerous team in this Challengers stage (laughs), so I really wanted to win so much against them.

Tell me about the ending of that match, we heard that chopper was quite confident during his 1v1 clutch. Is he a big motivator in the team?

Yeah, he gave us so much motivation in this match. Every round, if we lose, he'll cheer us up. During that clutch, he said "no worries, guys, I'm going to punch him", and he did it (laughs). But yeah, in late game, in overtime, I was a little bit nervous, I did some stupid mistakes. Sometimes we were unlucky in clutches, like jR twice in 1v1s...

Do you have any sort of preference for the third round, and are you now confident that you'll be able to make it through?

No preference. Everyone is good. I think we're just gaining the confidence with every match.

More interviews from the FACEIT Major New Challengers Stage:

Indonesia BnTeT: "We're confident in our skill, but I'm not sure we're confident in our team play"
Sweden Lekr0: "I think I learned the most about [in-game leading] from pronax back in the day"

Media Day:
Canada stanislaw: "We have all the pieces to really do some damage"
Ukraine B1ad3: "We still haven't found the perfect in-game leader"
