What is the most important thing for the team when you are fighting?

Larsen: Communication is definitely the key. We need to know when to push, where to push. We need to do it together.

You guys placed 3rd in both TPP and FPP. Are you happy with how the event has gone overall?

Larsen: I would say we are extremely happy. In the bigger picture it’s really amazing what we have accomplished here but right now we would have liked to place higher today.

What investment has your organization made to send you here? Do you have a coach or a gaming house?

Larsen: I don’t understand the question.

Gaxy: “Welcome To South Georgo” is just a name. We don’t have an organization behind us.

Larsen: All you have to go is to get through some online qualifiers and that’s it.

Do you want to stay on your own in the future or are you looking for an organization?

Larsen: We definitely look forward to joining an organization but prior to the PGI we didn’t feel like we received the right offers. We are patient. We know we are one of the best teams in the world. We proved it. Our future contracts have to reflect that.

Did you receive a lot of offers?

Larsen: We had a lot of offers but we turned them all down. They weren’t good enough.

What is the secret of the strength of your team?

Larsen: When we built the team, we felt like it was really important to have four individually very talented players. That’s now the case with our team. Then we spent a lot of time building synergies.

Did you expect such a dominating performance from OMG in the FPP tournament?

Larsen: No, we definitely did not expect that. Seeing other teams do better motivates us. But no, we didn’t expect such a strong performance from OMG especially after the TPP tournament. We haven’t played much against Chinese teams, so we did not really know what to expect.

Do you think that the Asian team will show a more aggressive playstyle in the future as well?

Larsen: We don’t think they were more aggressive than anyone else. I don’t know. We don’t focus on anybody else, we focus on ourselves.
