I looked through some of their videos and I saw their play. It’s fast and accurate, so I guess it’ll be pertty hard to win. But I can assure you that I’ll fight till the very last second. I have a huge PC experience and I hope it to help me. I’ll play keepball like Barca, like Spain. .. Yozhyk is coming, beware! READ THE INTERVIEW

ESWC 2011 Group Stage seedings revealed

ESWC 2011 Group Stage seedings revealed
It's only three days left for ESWC 2011 to startand from October, 21st to October, 25th we will witness one of the most prestigious tournaments in Paris, France. Last night tournament committee has revealed Counter-Strike seedings for the groupstage which you can see below: Group А AGAiN Lions ESC Antwerp Aces TRI Group B SK-Gaming M5 DTS 3Dmax eSrael Group C Na`Vi Winfakt Anexis Defs Viva Group D fnatic Mousesports Virus Alternate OurGame We've decided to catch Arseniy " ceh9 " Trynozhenko and ask him few questions before the tournament: What do you think about the seedings? Our group looks quite strong, three favorites for the top two place and the best Portugese team. I think it is going to be hot. But that's World Championship, after all. How long have you been practicing? Well, I would combine practicing both for SEC and ЕSWC. If so, it makes three weeks overall. But of course we had some pauses otherwise we would kill each other =). The tournament is very important for us because it is 5th of 6 World Championships in 2010-2011 + we are "defending champions". How would you predict the groupstage results? I don't see any intrigue. But probably both M5 and DTS would be able to outplay SK. Other groups are obvious. What do you think about Winfakt who have been doing pretty good lately? Your thought about their lineup? I think they won't be able to show such stable result as top 3 on this world ranked tournament with the best teams competing. Their fast and agressive gameplay often lets them down especially in important rounds. They aim very well but still use the same tactics as good old N69-28E. But overall they are cool guys, Lurppis is our friend.

Interview with Na`Vi.ALF

Interview with Na`Vi.ALF
Recently our SC2 team has been doing good with Alexander " Na`Vi.ALF " Yatsenko winning a paid slot at ESWC 2011 finals and few online tournaments. That's why we've decided to sit together with Alexander and ask him few questions - have a nice reading! Hi! You’ve won ESWC Qualifiers. How did you manage to do that? - I was shocked. That moment I had the weakest ZvP matchup. And 5 out of 6 series of bo3 I had ZvP games. I had no exact timings or prepared cheeses. I just estimated the main points, figured which unit combinations I could use and how I could tie up in knots my competitor... And everything worked! I guess the main point was my ability to keep balance. I felt the anxiety only mixed-up with the smell of victory. You were also good at WSG Ukraine Finals not so long ago. If the tournament were held now, how well would you perform? The match against White Ra would be different. I’d perform much better. As for that time I had no exact plan for the game.
