woxic: "After Dust2, we understood fnatic were already tilted"

September 16th, 2018 18:37

HellRaisers have made it to the playoffs at the FACEIT Major after beating fnatic 2-1 in the fifth round, and we spoke to Özgür "woxic" Eker about making his first Major playoffs and more.

HellRaisers started off well in the series agianst fnatic, as they grabbed an 11-4 half on Mirage, but they couldn't close things out as the Swedes pulled off a comeback in overtime. Kirill "ANGE1" Karasiow's team then secured their pick, Dust2, before decimating fnatic 16-2 on Cache to advance to the playoffs in London.

After the match, we got a hold of woxic, who talked about making his first Major playoffs as well as about how HellRaisers dealt with the tough loss on the opening map to lock down the win over fnatic in the end.

they need new cap and wtf happens with flusha ;/
2018-09-16 18:40
idk the whole situation is weird right now
2018-09-16 18:43
new cap? they got best cap possible rn, the problem was bringing fkin draken and removing jw from awping
2018-09-16 19:03
you mean xizt:D? haha
2018-09-16 19:08
yes, i mean Xizt, most titled player in cs:go
2018-09-16 19:09
and how exactly is that relevant in freaking 2018:D? omegalul
2018-09-16 19:09
he has become most titled after winning iem sydney in 2018... and i dont get what is your point overall
2018-09-16 19:10
yea event with faze where he wasnt even an igl lol. 0/8 argument...my point is that he isnt the best captain just look at achievments and overall performance of fnatic with golden and now with xizt. there you go /edit also look at freaking lekr0 and how big impact he has on nip in such a short period of time+he is like 10x better fragger. another better option than xizt but guess what? they rather picked xizt, made golden entry fragger and then kicked him lol
2018-09-16 19:20
he wasnt even igl so what? he was bottom fragger? no im not saying that he's goat captain, but a very good one and the best possible for fnatic rn. Also look at second half of 2017 when they acquired golden. wow much results wow. it has only been 4 months since they added Xizt. And my point is that draken is the problem. Btw when there was golden there also was lekr0 who is >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> draken /edit yeah, that was weird move, but you are not inside the team to decide that. If you put 5 good players who dont get with each other you will eat shit. Apparently lekr0 and fnatic players (jw, flusha, krimz) had some problems or whatever
2018-09-16 19:22
"he wasnt even igl so what? he was bottom fragger? no" and how exactly is his performance in different team in different role relevant to his role and performance in fnatic and performance of his team? jesus christ, so irrelevant man look at performance and results of fnatic before golden, with him...and now after him. its HUGE differentce. fnatic had 2 better options: golden and lekr0 and they literally screwed themselves by retarded lineup changes and now they are stucked with outdated xizt and draken lol
2018-09-16 19:23
you either cant read or you just run out of arguments so you're copypasting your point whithout reading mine cheers
2018-09-16 19:24
out of arguments? your only argument is his titles xyz years ago and performance in faze where he wasnt even an igl:DDDD the best captain my ass.
2018-09-16 19:25
2018-09-16 18:43
what do you mean? draken is toxic af
2018-09-16 18:43
You're more toxic
2018-09-16 18:44
nice try lol
2018-09-16 18:50
2018-09-16 18:51
no problem man have a nice day
2018-09-16 18:51
2018-09-16 19:22
Draken doesn't seem to be the right fit for Fnatic . A new upcoming awper might work well.
2018-09-16 18:40
which one...? the last option is twist but thats it
2018-09-16 19:10
A new fresh talent I meant to say , the same way ropz was picked up .
2018-09-16 19:17
i dont think that there is someone like that in sweden currently...
2018-09-16 19:18
not if you dont look. think of rez and how he joined nip. nobody knew his name before he joined them...
2018-09-17 08:09
Rez was well known in semi pro scene...
2018-09-17 08:54
but no one consideresd to pick him up. and now hes doing work on nip.
2018-09-17 08:59
I agree with your main point... I just dont think that there is currently someone like that. Maybe in fpl, who knows
2018-09-17 09:02
idk either tbh i dont follow fpl all too much. i thought about this last night while it got mentiomnd in the mibr -nip stream... all talent gets basically choked out because waaaay too few ppl can even reach FPL. not everyone who has talent is willing to PUG their way to the top. at this point u might be better off creating a team amd then playong your way up.
2018-09-17 09:09
Yea I agree

HellRaisers is back. xizt is carring those rounds.
2018-09-17 03:18
actually he is very modest and smart guy the main thing for awp player is to be believed by his teammembers in his confidence and they should give him enough space and opportunity to shine.Woxic is very free in Hellraisers,I noticed a lot of times when only woxic buys awp when the others are on pistols.He and issaaa are kinda superheroes of HEllraisers. Loved a lot the case about fnatic's outdoor being all alone and Hellraises cought it and tryed to upset them mentally.Very perfect strategic and psychologic move.
