Twist:

ELEAGUE Season 2 is set to start for us tonight, this time we're aiming to do what we didn't do last season and claim the championship! With well performing challengers awaiting us and the boys playing with head coach Jimmy "Jumpy" Berndtsson as a stand-in for Dennis "dennis" Edman, the team has an exciting weekend ahead of them.

To start it all off, we had a quick chat with Simon "twist" Eliasson about his opinion on the recent performances of the team, his expectations for ELEAGUE, the return of Fnatic's legend status at the next Major and more!

The team will be in Atlanta this weekend to play in Group D of ELEAGUE Season 2, how confident are you with the new lineup?

I'm really confident with what we will be able to achieve long-term with the new lineup, however, we’re playing with Jumpy during ELEAGUE and even though he is a great stand-in, he is still a stand-in and we haven't had much practice with him. If the rest of us step up and deliver in numbers, we should still have a good shot at qualifying for playoffs.

Dignitas has been improving a lot lately in their results, are they the team to look out for in the group?

I think all three teams are in great form, playing with a lot of confidence and putting in good results. All match ups will be tough ones.

This will be the first time you play ELEAGUE with Fnatic, are you excited to be on various TV channels around the world?

It’s definitely a cool change from other events, playing on national TV. It won't affect me while playing though. Maybe afterwards when you get home and see everything afterwards, you will realize how big it was.

What are your overall expectations for ELEAGUE?

A great tournament which we advance from groups to start with.

With the return of KrimZ to the lineup, Fnatic has regained legendary status in the next Major. How does that influence the morale of the team knowing you have a guaranteed spot at the Major?

It affects us in the way that we have less pressure and stress on us. We don't need to play Minor and Major qualification, which is a huge load off our shoulders in an already hectic schedule, so that gives us more time to practice and prepare for the Major itself.

Has KrimZ’s return benefited the overall chemistry of the roster?

Krimz is a very calm and smart player that does everything that the team needs. It’s super easy playing with him and he brings out the best in the rest of us in a great way.

What are the current roles now that disco doplan and KrimZ are on the team?

I wouldn't say we have specific roles. Everyone is comfortable in playing many different roles, both offensive and defensive ones and we simply adjust depending on maps, situations, etc.

You have been a part of Fnatic for a while now, how do you feel about your personal development in the team so far?

It's hard to say that I've developed myself yet but I think we're making progress as a team every day, and that's all that matters. If it continues at the same pace we will be in great form for the Major and 2017 overall.

Do you have any side hobbies you enjoy doing at times you’re not busy training hard for the team?

I like playing a few sports like football or basketball with friends from time to time, it's good to have something outside the computer that you can relax with.

Fnatic is now close to being in the top 10 of the community’s CS:GO ranking, what is your goal for the team to reach before the end of the year?

I wouldn't say we have any specific goals for this year, we are a new team and as long as we're making progress that's all we can ask for. To be in great form for the Major and to perform well, that is the first and biggest goal we have right now.

    Hello,
    I Read the article of a very great spell caster and it seems very helpful to me. I haven’t had the chance to have a proper relationship with my ex because we work together. This will be the final week or work and then I wont be around him constantly. Unfortunately, I broke one of the rules in the article and have been sleeping with him. Something I’m not proud of, especially since he has a girlfriend. Not to mention that she’s a girl he dated off and on for 3 years before he dated me.
    When I asked him why he kept sleeping with me even though he was in a relationship, his response was because I wanted it, and he wants me to be happy. But obviously what would make me happy would be to have him all to myself. That was when i read about Dr alexzander on how he help people in saving their relationship and i was really desperate for his help. There were things in our relationship that were tough. We traveled for 4 months right in the beginning, and it was hard due to different expectations. When we returned our living situation was unstable which caused a lot of stress on my end. And when I ask why he didn’t give me a chance to make things better he said he gave me tons of chances. Oh, and he compared our relationship with his past. He says that things were great, and then they went bad really fast, and that why his back with is Ex. Because it at least took them years for things to get that bad. So i was very sad and disappointing and decided to contact this spell caster for help with tears running out of my eyes and Dr alexzander promised to make things right in my relationship and also assured me that my boyfriend is going to come back to me within 78hrs. At first i was shock and didn't believe him because i thought it was impossible to do. But i gave it a try and trusted him. Dr alexzander asked for my details and his, then guarantee me of his return. Truly my ex lover started calling me and also begging me to forgive him and that's his willing to give us a second chance, then promised me never to love any other woman apart from me. it all seem like a miracle to me till now. Dr alexzander. Words can't express how i feel right now. it been 2 month now since you caste that love spell for me and nothing have gone bad between us. his now caring more than ever and also the loving kind of Man i have ever wanted for myself in life. I thank you Dr alexzander for saving my relationship. Indeed you are the best. I want to use this media to share my testimony for the whole world to see and know that there is still hope in your broken relationship, No matter how bad it seems don't give up hope and also contact this man who saved my own. you can reach him through his website address http://alexzanderhightemple-com.webs.com or contact him direct with his email address alexzanderhightemple@gmail.com. I thank you Dr alexzander for helping me and i will always share my testimony in every social media or place i may go to.
