We just met with Necrox, from Evil Geniuses before the Pro League Finals in Milan this weekend, who accepted to answer some of our questions.
ESIX: Hi everyone in the EG team and thank you very much for answering our questions and congratulations on making it to the Pro League Finals!
You are once again in the Pro League Finals, how does it feel to consistently be in the top of the NA Pro League and making it to the Finals?
Necrox: Making LAN once again is a familiar feeling, we are happy to go but are not satisfied by it. We want to win an event once again.
ESIX: However, in the actual Finals, what do you think is needed to reach the top?
Necrox: I think the difference between making it to a PL LAN and actually making it to the finals is minimizing our mistakes in game and proper preparation. After all we won't have a lot of chances like the online season.
ESIX: You will face Immortals 1st, the 2nd LATAM seed. How will you prepare for the match up? Who would you have liked to face 1st instead?
Necrox: Preparing for Immortals won't be very different than preparing for other teams within their region, they are very aggressive and smart about it; like their in LATAM. I personally would have preferred Nora-Rengo since we are familiar to their play-style
ESIX: How does the group feel ? Are you ready for these finals ? Do you feel confident about the seeding?
Necrox: We have previously played every team (except for Immortals) in our group and are comfortable in adjusting to them, so in short I am generally happy with our group. Though in my opinion it does not matter what our group looks like if we aspire to be the best then we have to be able to beat the best.
ESIX: It’s been a while since an NA team has won a Pro League finals, we can even talk about a curse. Do you feel ready to break down this spell ?
Necrox: The last time NA won a finals were the two seasons we won a while back, those being Y1 S3 and the first Six Invitational. We look forward to potentially win a grand finals again, especially after such a long period.
ESIX: Lastly, any words for your fans?
Necrox: Thank you for #Bleeding Blue with us, we know its been a roller coaster ride for you as much as it has been for us. :)
