apEX: "I understand the people trash-talking us, I just hope they try to understand us because we didn't want to do anything bad"

We had a chat with Dan "apEX" Madesclaire on day two of IEM Chicago following Vitality's win against Renegades in Group B's elimination match.

We got a hold of the Frenchman to ask him about Vitality's mentality at the ESEA Season 31 Global Challenge last week, where the team's lax approach to their matches caused extensive backlash from the community.

apEX commented on Vitality's approach to the Global Challenge

After explaining his team's side of the situation, apEX discussed Vitality's struggles against Heroic on day one of IEM Chicago and in the group stage of ESL One Cologne, and talked about improvements for day two.

The interview was conducted before the conclusion of the series between ENCE and Heroic.

There was a lot of backlash for your mentality at the Global Challenge, what did you think about the response from the community?

Coming to the event, I think we didn't have any break for about three months. We had a lot of tournaments, we had things to do for Vitality, so we didn't have a break just to get some rest. Obviously, the Global Challenge wasn't really important for us except the EPL slot, so we decided to just try to get some rest during the event, even if it's not that easy, but get some rest to be ready for this event [IEM Chicago] because it's more important.

I know that it wasn't seen the best way by the community, for sure, and I know they don't understand our decision, but we just wanted to get some rest because we felt like we were really tired even at Cologne. We didn't play our best CS even if we went to the final, mainly individually except for ZywOo. I understand the people trash-talking us, but I just hope they try to understand us because we didn't want to do anything bad, just get some rest and be ready for the next event.

Knowing what the response has been, was it worth it?

I don't know. If we had to do it again, at least we'd think about that, but as I said, I understand the people. We had to find a solution to just clear our minds because three months without a break, it's one of the first times I did that in my whole career and I'm not going to lie, I'm super tired right now.

Shifting over to Chicago, here and back in Cologne you had a couple of tough series against Heroic, this time being on the losing side - what makes it so hard to face them right now?

Even if they're playing super-well, I think the game at Cologne and the game here was pretty much the same, I would say. We didn't play good CS at all, we didn't our play our best CS, at least. We just showed a bad level during the ESL One Cologne group stage and we did the same yesterday. Obviously, they played well, but we just played horribly overall. We knew that they were a dangerous opponent, but I don't know what happened exactly, I couldn't explain, but we were just not very good as a team, mainly. And me, individually, I was terrible.

Is that something you can address for the series later, in which you could play them again? Can you improve on that today?

Obviously, yes. Today was much better, we reset our minds from yesterday, we talked a lot. The thing is, this team needs a lot of energy during the game because when we don't put the right energy in, we just play really badly, and that's what happened yesterday. We just try to keep our energy before the game, and now between the games, just to give everything during the game. And that's a lesson we understood, hopefully we will continue to think about that and if it works, it's the best.

It is their own fault. They know the agenda. If you see that you have to many events, just say no to some so you can rest. You will give the oportunity to another team that for sure will do their best in the event and not throw. Dont say yes to al invitation and then throw game becouse you are tired. Brainless thinking. They have lost my respect

Wasn't an invite but playoffs mdl. They were already qualified for epl. That is also a stupid organisation

I bet on Vitality. I mean I have to consider that you should expect losing when betting. But then what did IBP did wrong. They had also qualified earlier and didn't wanna to play the match. They threw we lost money , Vitality threw we lost money. And I don't care if money is involved, a throw is a throw.

Maybe if Vitality players had bet on themselves to lose it would mean something. But playing bad in unimportant matches is a common thing in sports. Look at the league cups in football. None of the top 5 teams cares about it.
2019-07-19 21:59
Those players getting a chance instead of the “star-players” they care.
2019-07-19 23:34
That is the worst comparison ever dude, wtf...??? In football they announce the lines ups before they start, so you know if the bench players are getting a chance or not, this is them throwing, and theres nothing to talk about, and when theres money involved, it is just simple stupidity from vitalitys side.. They know how many big booking companies offers bets on there matches, but the question is if those big multi million dollar betting companies wanna take any legal action or not, only time will tell...

2019-07-20 02:38
No they dont, they anounce the starting line up 1 hour before, and thats plenty enough time for those betting people to make up there mind, and ontop of that you know who is in the squad way earlier then that.... It doesnt matter if he said so, any sport organisation has an agreement with the betting companies, and that hasnt been upheld in this situation... I honestly dont care what happends in this situation, but dont be surprised if something goes down, because if those big betting companies decide it needs investigation, it will go far beyond valve... But who knows, they might not give a shit, since cs is as small as it is :P

that's what i said dude, you just said "no they don't" and repeated exactly what i fucking said lol, and sometimes they even announce the lineup less than an hour before, not always exactly 1h. + most people bet waaaay before the start, sometimes days before the beginning, ALEX fucking said that it wasn't serious for them and they even played like that for 2 or 3 games before furia ( a couple days before it ), it means that people had plenty of time to bet. the only situation which they could get sanctioned is if they won money or something off of it, which most likely didn't happen cause they're already getting paid well and won't risk getting banned like IBP

Regardless, the only people in the community that are truly upset, are people who bet on vitality; people who use the scene for financial gain, not people who truly love watching for what it is. Because of that, I don’t feel bad for them at all. Yes it was a throw, but there was no match fix, and valve will not even come close to banning them. They played for fun, and salty gamblers are crying. Boohoo, you lost money that you should’ve been ready to lose.
2019-07-20 15:25
Thats where youre wrong my good man, i dont bet at all, im looking at this as a bystander, and its so unethical.. I used to work for bet24 back when they where alive, so i know what im talking about.. Who cares about valve? This is a legal issue as csgo it self is on a signed contract with the companies, just like every other sport that are being offered betting on, and that is to avoid what they just did... I dont care what happends, its not my problem, but it could get ugly...

2019-07-19 21:57
Yess, but again... lets say football, u have UCL tuesday and let players rest sunday in the league match. Fair, rough to play fullpower with only 1 whole day of rest. (Those players getting the chance, i bet u, they try really hard to win and do good, tho) But Vitality chose this event. Because it had a epl spot as price.. now... they secured the epl spot somhow else. The event all of a sudden don’t have value to them. Just sayin’ not Nice and som other team, who might really wanted to fight at try cs at High level, could have got that spot instead of them, then. Dont just fucking accept all events. Then pick’n’chose once you find out what events you actually want to play.

Am I way behind news ? So what did Vitality do/say about this Global Challenge ?
2019-07-19 21:41
They literally gained the EPL spot and then had to play the Global Challenge. They threw the Global Challenge game just like IBP, except maybe they did not bet on themselves. However, throwing is throwing and they made theirs obvious

Wow so objective. IBP were banned because they intentionally fixed the match. Vita threw, they didn't fix it. IBP didn't throw, they fixed it before the match, to gain money..
2019-07-20 13:32
So where did I ever say they fixed the match? I would argue fixing and throwing are the same thing. Even though it is obvious you are oblivious and biased as many HLTV users are, you are just trying to separate what they did from IBP. Just because you didn't bet on yourself does not mean anything. This is a competitive sport like every other one and this is what happens. People throw and this is the backlash they get. Just realize that they threw and there should be some kind of punishment. End of story. BTW Apex still sucks as a player and needs to be replaced :)

next time think before you do, dumbo "know they don't understand our decision, but we just wanted to get some rest because we felt like we were really tired even at Cologne." Then fix up your fucking schedule. Skip either Cologne or MDL or stop fucking complaining.

There's never been any ban for throwing, there were bans for match fixing. Don't get me wrong though, I don't think they should've done that.

Doesn't it brings some doubts for the betters, like you cant predict, knowing that somethings like that, a team use a smaller event just to take a breathe? So that values at the betmarket will change, kinda unfairly, it's not how the game and beting should be. Even knowing their side and actually giving them a little space, understandable, I still thinking that what they did, thinking that throwing games, zywoo playing with a bizon wtih 10k at the bank, forcing unnecessary rounds, everyone playing only with deagles even having allot of money, has such a bigger meaning than what they thought it will have. (Sorry if there's some gram errors btw)

2019-07-20 00:18
looks like when felps get benched from SK last year he sayed that he was tired to play 8 hours a day. Man I dont know In Denmark but here in Brazil there are people that hard work 12 hours a day to get 350$ for month I am lucky to get graduated an had a good education than 90% of the population of my country.
2019-07-20 00:35
Are you really so stupid ? Pro carreer is a fucking rythm exactly as Tennis player. Always in moving (Cologne, Dallas, Chicago, come back to Europe, ...). Many hours in airport, in hotel, and practice everytime it is possible. If I remember KennyS said he played 2 hours for individual skill then 6 hours with team to train strats every day. Plus offlines matches etc.

Nice way to fuck up the tournament organizers :D. Not too many sponsors like it when the #1 talking point regarding the tournament is that teams participating in it tell publicly that they didn't care to play it. If only Vitality had at least kept their own mouths shut...
