Vip-Bet: Next to me is Steel from Immortals. The first question is about the crowd here, the event, the venue?
Steel: The crowd here is the best, man! I don’t know why, but the Polish crowd is such like the Brazilian. So energic, and I can’t lie, man, here is the best place to play.
Vip-Bet: We saw you down in the crowd, giving autographs. What is the feeling to be around the fans?
Steel: It is great because, as I told the Polish guys, it reminds me so much of the Brazilians. I feel like I’m in home.
Vip-Bet: What do you think about the group stage? You passed the group with a result of 4:1.
Steel: Yes, we did excellent in the groups. As you said, we were 4:1; we lost only to FaZe. We really tried to beat them in the semifinals but they were a tough opponent for us. But it was a solid performance in the group stage.
Vip-Bet: Can you talk about your mistakes in those matches, especially in the match against FaZe?
Steel: Yeah, we did a lot of mistakes in our game, mostly because of our mental weakness. We have to improve it, we have to have more strength mentally in the next one.
Vip-Bet: Ok, what is the feeling to play with a new player here?
Steel: It is great to know that every time when you bring a new player, you play better. The motivation is greater and he brings a lot of new ideas.
Vip-Bet: What are your plans for the future?
Steel: We got to practice hard of course. Our main goal is to qualify for the Major. That is the main thing.
Vip-Bet: Next question is about eSports development. What do you think about it?
Steel: I think it will be a lot better this year, it will be bigger and bigger, growing a lot. I think that maybe some of the soccer teams will be involved in eSports.
Vip-Bet: Yes, we already saw Team North, part of FC Copenhagen. Is this possible in Brazil? Will football teams there open an eSports division?
Steel: Maybe not in this year but it is possible maybe in the next year.
Vip-Bet: Which is your favorite football team in Brazil?
Steel: Corinthians from Sao Paolo.
Vip-Bet: Nice, and one more question. What do you think about eSport betting? More and more sportsbooks are now offering eSports markets, so what is your opinion about it?
Steel: I am not sure what to talk about this. It could be a good thing and a bad thing. Betting brings a lot of euros but can also bring a lot of bad things like what happened to the American guys who got banned. In my opinion, it is good but also has bad sides.
Vip-Bet: Have you ever placed a bet?
Steel. No.. Or actually at the beginning, I like betting on my skins go to which teams are going to win, but only like for four times.
Vip-Bet: Thank you, Steel!
Steel: Yes, thank you a lot.
