Ulrich “Kongotime” Hanten caught up recently with compLexity.DotA’s very own Jeyo, to chat about the team and chiefly The International 2. compLexity just picked up a win yesterday, in dominating fashion, over mousesports in The Defense Grand Finals, and obviously the quetsion on everyone’s minds right now is “How will they do at The International?”.
Below is an excerpt from the interview:
Do you still wish to have experienced an actual LAN tournament side by side with your team mates before, with TI2 in mind. After all teams like Na`Vi or all Chinese contenders played countless offline matches in the past.
– Oh yes of course, every LAN experience counts and people from the community probably expect us to do bad on LAN events because of our inexperience, but anything can and WILL happen. It’s always going to come down to who’s got the most confidence coming into an event like TI2. And teams that do have the experience will have a fair advantage granted to them compared to teams that don’t.
You mentioned that you are playing in a LAN environment already. Could you give us a little more details on how we can illustrate that. When do you get up and go to sleep, how are your sessions like and so on?
– We get up to practice when the sun rises and end when the sun goes down. Well for now we’ve only been on LAN for a day and even though we were inactive for one week because of vacation, we don’t show any signs of slowing down. As for sessions I usually give high fives whenever we win or at least I try to. The environment is a lot of fun and the LAN centre is very nice (shoutout to gameclucks). I have never seen as much dedication as my teammates show when we practice, and I hope that it will pay off. I’d like to elaborate more but we’re just here to have a positive experience and show good results in the upcoming events. Ixmike is a bit intimidating though.
This interview seeks to provide the answers, and much more, about the team that have played together for years without a roster modification. It answers the burning question we’ve all been wanting to ask, what’s it like playing with ixmike on LAN? Does the mustache overshadow everyone else? Does it intimadate the players with its grandeur and splendor? Find out at the source!
Thanks to GosuGamers for the interview.
