Our friends over at AbsoluteLegends took the opportunity to interview Carlos 'ocelote' Rodríguez Santiago and ask his thoughts on how the day went and his expectations of Gamescom.
Ocelote was interviewed by AL|insta
Ocelote: In my personal oppinion, Millenium (aAa in the past) is the best team of the World, basing my statement on the
regularity they used to have, and specially on the teamplay they're getting with the time.
They are nice with everyone, they're so mannered and they always kept cool and friendly with their opponents. I'm amazed how my team played overall, we taken down the best team of the momment probably.
insta: Who was the most skilled player in best of 3 against Millenium and why?
Ocelote: I don't think any of us played better than any of us. This is the first time I see my team plays like a team, and not relying on individual awesome moves.
One by one, Nyph did a perfect job timing and warding everywhere, aswell as winning botlane.
Candypanda did perfect in lanning phase, outfarming and outplaying in general his opponents.
Wetdream, even tho he played under absurd conditions, he managed to do an awesome stuff ganking and warding wherever was needed. Wickd won his lane, aswell as managed to make insanely good engages and pressure over the opponent. Nice Tp's, farming and damage output aswell as survability in Teamfights.
And me, ocelote, managed to take down brand in every teamfight in the first game; and in the second one, had the great idea of gearing Cass as a Tank, and facing 1v2 in every teamfight their carries. That helped a lot, and normally could take Ashe 1v2.
Perfect games in terms of Teamplay.
insta: How will you prepare for the future and IEM Cologne ?
Ocelote: We'll do what we did all these weeks. Carry on trainning. We got so much potential, and even if we dont get a nice
result in Gamescom, im pretty sure the future of this team is heading at the very top of the scene.
We definitely learned a lot in these weeks, and everyone of us are getting better and better, our skillcap seems way too high and we're working hard to reach it."
