Nikita "saetia" Burlakov on the game versus Just.MSI:
"We were nervous as it was the first game of the season. But it turned out we shouldn’t have had to. New Just.MSI roster was not ready neither in terms of their rotations, nor mechanics. Pretty clean game from us, slow but growing pressure and obvious outcome."
MVP of the match: Anton "Fomko" Fomkin, 58.1% of the votes
Nikita "saetia" Burlakov on the game versus Team Empire:
"An essential game for many reasons. Knowing the background of the Team Empire players, we managed to get almost a perfect draft for us, which was difficult for them to respond during the game. The teams had different priorities, Empire wanted first two dragons that were pretty useless, and we were just farming and scaling. In the end only through farm we got advantage of 3000 gold and began pressuring our opponents. They had no answer for us except for some waveclear".
