Interview med Link
Sylvester 'Link' Hoelgaard som er et kendt ansigt på Dota 2 scenen er for nylig blevet interviewet af joinDOTA.
Link startede Dota 2 karrieren godt ud men har siden da haft noget modgang. Han blev blandt andet en del af den verdens kendte eSports organisation, SK-Gaming. Det skulle dog vise sig at være et kortvarig ophold med en bitter eftersmag.
Herunder er et udsnit af interviewet med Link:
After losing SK’s sponsorship, Quantic decided to pick you guys up. Quantic was a team that truly challenged for the top spot, narrowly losing out to Na’Vi in The Defense finals 2 games to 3. How would you describe the entire journey to the finals?
"Just like with SK, Quantic worked for a while, which was while we were playing in The Defense. Everyone was giving it everything and it was a blast to play the entire tournament almost claiming first place. The finals versus Na’Vi was one of the most exciting series of games I have ever played."
After the series (The Defense), you guys were highly rated by Na’Vi and Puppey even mentioned that Quantic was one of the few teams that truly knew how to play. What are your thoughts on this?
"I honestly did not know about this, but it is always nice to get some recognition from respected players and people."
Sadly, this was not to last as after the finals Quantic sunk to a low and the team seemed to have lost its mojo. How would you explain this?
"Basically the problems that we had in SK was never really solved, so it was just the same slump as earlier and at the time I did not understand why people lost their motivation. We did have some ups and downs during the period and I do not want to blame anyone or point fingers. We simply just had different beliefs and priorities at the time."
