He is one of the most successful Counter-Strike Global Offensive players in the world!
We met him after the group stages of IEM Katowice 2017, where he and his teammates, didn’t manage to reach the playoffs. Check TACO’s thoughts on his future at CS: GO Scene, eSports betting and many more!
Vip-Bet: Hi guys, next to me is TACO from SK Gaming and we will find out his opinion about the whole Intel Extreme Masters 2017 event!
First of all, what do you think about the crowd here in Katowice?
TACO: The event was pretty fine. There is not anything bad to say. The computers, the crowd, the structure, the people, the staff, everything was very fine. I really liked this event and actually, every time when we are playing here, it is amazing. First time when we were here in Katowice, we made it to the finals. It was amazing. The crowd was cheering for us, so that is something that I will never forget.
Vip-Bet: We saw you yesterday in the crowd. The people here love you. But what do you think about your group – was it the hardest one?
TACO: We should not care about the teams in our group. If we want to win the tournament, we have to at least win the group stage. I really don’t care about the teams that were in our group, I think it was our fault and I’m really looking forward to playing another tournament and to fix the problems we had.
Vip-Bet: Did you speak about your mistakes?
TACO: Yes, right after the tournament, we had a team meeting, where we have talked about what happened and how we can improve as a team. So we know what happened and we are working on it. I’m pretty sure we will improve soon.
Vip-Bet: So what is the plan? Practice more, or you have something more specific in mind?
TACO: We need to practice in the right way. We felt that our practice sessions were not in the right way. Actually we practice a lot, like really a lot, many hours a day. Now we want to do it in a right way.
Vip-Bet: Maybe some practice, some rest?
TACO: Yes, exactly, that is really important.
Vip-Bet: What is the feeling to play with a new player felps, instead of your former teammate fnx?
TACO: Felps is a really talented guy, really good and he is learning. When you join SK Gaming, there is a lot new things to learn about. To playing for the second best team in the world is hard. We have a lot of experience to help him and I think if he learn and listen, we can be one of the best team in the world again.
Vip-Bet: Can you tell us how a regular day in your life looks like?
TACO: You want to hear about today?
Vip-Bet: Yeah, OK. Tell us about today.
TACO: Alright, let’s talk about this weekend. After we lost in the group stage, I was really sad obviously. Like I said, we had a meeting to discuss what happened – that is really important for us. Yesterday I was in the crowd as you said. I felt like I had to be there. The guys here in Katowice expected us to play on the stage and it was really important for me to be in the crowd and meet the public. It is really good to know that many people like us, support us.
Vip-Bet: The support is something important, yes. But what is your opinion about eSport betting? Have you ever placed a bet on eSports?
TACO: I don’t care about it. I mean if you like to bet, go ahead and bet.
Vip-Bet: But you are not betting?
TACO: I bet only for fun. I’ve been to Las Vegas and didn’t bet at all…
Vip-Bet: Speaking about the Las Vegas, what was the difference between the event there and the one here in Katowice?
TACO: There was a pretty good tournament, with very beautiful arena, venue, everything was really good. The problem was the crowd. It was kind of empty and I felt bad because the stage was really beautiful and totally deserved more people.
Vip-Bet: Thank you for your time and we wish you all the best!
TACO: Yes, Thank you!
