China Top 2016: Interview with GOLDEN

Our CS:GO Academy team has landed in Shenzhen for the China Top 2016 event. They will face off against home teams VG.CyberZen and FIVE, as well as MVP Project from South Korea. 

It's been a while since our brand has been playing in a CS:GO event in the region, our Academy boys are excited and up for the challenge the Asian teams present. It's a rather unique tournament with only 4 teams taking part, however, it's bound to be an exciting one as we see a clash of the western and eastern CS:GO styles. 

During Day 1 we caught up with our in-game leader Maikil “GOLDEN” Selim to talk about the event, the teams and the recent sound update in CS:GO. Check out the interview below and follow all the action from China with our coverage hub

Today you get underway in Shenzhen for “China Top 2016”, how are you guys feeling ahead of the tournament?

We are feeling great actually, the jet lag has not been hard as we thought. We have good mindset coming into this tournament.

What are your expectations as team for this event, you’ve had some strong results at Predator Masters and ESWC, do you see yourself winning this one?

We have had a upstream in our development as a team and inviduals. We came into ESWC and Acer Predator masters as underdogs and performed beyond everyones expectations. That gave us a big confidence boost coming into this tournament and we believe our chances are high to win.

This event is a long way from home, how have you guys adjusted to the time schedule and the environment in china?

We adjusted to the local time in Shenzhen very quickly and feel no jetlag. We like the food and don't feel like outsiders, people here are very friendly.

Let’s talk about the teams attending this event, have you had much time to study the other squads?

Our Coach Samuelson has studied all the teams because we didn't know who we were going to face in the first round and we feel prepared. The Asian teams have strategies that are unexcepted and they setup traps. Out of nowwhere you see 3 people stacked up on a position that you would normally never see in the western cs.

Who do you see as your biggest threat at the event?

Our biggest threat is VG.Cyberzen, they recently played WCA finals and lost against Epsilon. So they are definetly a strong opponent.

As in-game leader, what are your thoughts on the current map pool for CS:GO? Are there any maps in the current rotation you’d like to see removed from competitive play?

The Map pool is good except Dust 2 and Nuke should be removed and add inferno back in the pool. And a new Map would give the competitve CS scene a new meta. Or just fix/optimize Dust 2 and Nuke.

What are your thoughts on the recent sound update to CS:GO? Which version are you currently using in-game?

I was so hyped when the new update came out, the HRTF is good but it's not good enough yet it still need some fixing, so I am still using the old sound system.

Any final comments?

I would like to thank everyone in Fnatic and the sponsors, also the Chinese event organisers for giving us this big opportunity.

After reading all these, I decided to give it a try. I contacted him via email and explained my problem to him. In just 48hours, my husband came back to me. We resolved our issues, and we are even happier than before Dr Isa hazzan, He is really a gifted man and i will not stop publishing him because he is a wonderful man...

    Good day
    Read my testimony!!! Getting ex back after a breakup. Am Cora L. Sanchez 30 from UK, my boyfriend of a 2year just broke up with me and am 28 weeks pregnant. I have cried my self to sleep most of the nights and don’t seem to concentrate during lectures sometimes I stay awake almost all night thinking about him and start to cry all over again. Because of this I end up not having energy for my next day’s classes, my attendance has dropped and am always in uni and on time. Generally he is a very nice guy, he ended it because he said we were arguing a lot and not getting along. He is right we’ve been arguing during the pregnancy a lot. After the break up I kept ringing him and telling him I will change. I am in love with this guy and he is the best guy I have ever been with. I’m still hurt and in disbelief when he said he didn’t have any romantic feelings towards me anymore that hurt me faster than a lethal syringe. He texts me now and then mainly to check up on how am doing with the pregnancy, he is supportive with it but it’s not fair on me, him texting me as I just want to grieve the pain and not have any stress due to the pregnancy. i was really upset and i needed help, so i searched for help online and I came across a website that suggested that Dr Ahmed can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and he told me what to do and i did it then he did a spell for me. 22 hours later, my boyfriend came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. I and my boyfriend are living together happily again.. All thanks to Dr Ahmed. as it is a place to resolve marriage/relationship issues, do you want to be sure if your spouse is being faithful to you or Do you want your Ex to come back to you Contact.:
    E-mail: [email protected] OR call/Whats-app: +2348160153829
    save your crumbling home and change of grades its 100% safe.
    I suggest you contact him. He will not disappoint you.

    My name is Christopher Donna i want to thank my friend for showing me the way to DR. AJAGUNA temple where all my sorrow was turn to joy. I was in a relationship for 12 years and suddenly a mistake came into it from my side, i could not conceive any baby but i tried to beg my man telling him that every thing will be alright but he refuse to listen and he left me for another woman every day i cry for for thing to change but no change.

    I was a HIV positive since birth because my mother had the disease with her before i was born. I am here to testify to the good works of Doctor Odunga in my life for helping me with my problem. When i read testimonies of spell casters since i was eighteen years old, I have contacted more than 5 spell casters to help me with my problem and none of them could help me. I gave up o the search to look for a spell caster because i believed they cannot help me. Doctor Odunga was introduced to me by a friend whom i met on facebook and i reluctantly tried him. Within some days, i received a medicine and after taking it, it took seven days and then i went to the hospital to do a test and behold i was cured. This spell caster did not ask for a compensation but instructed me to just share his wonderful works. Please, if you need help i will like you to contact this man and get your problem solve. His email is [email protected] and his website is odungaspelltemple.wordpress.com He has helped many people and he will help you too.

    I know you might not understand what that feels like to be born with a disease but it really pained me when my boyfriend left me because of this disease and that was how doctor odunga helped me with the problem and i was very happy with the results. I got my ex back and we are together now, more happier than before. Firstly he gave me a treatment and the cure, secondly, my ex came back to me. It was a wonderful experience working with him. Well, i so don't know what to say but i will tell people to contact him at [email protected]

    My name is Alicia,from UK.I contacted Mr. Femi okuns, after wasting time on other so called witches & spell-casters. I spent thousands of dollars with no results. Up to the point where I contacted via email: [email protected] I had No contact with my lost love,my husband whom he helped to bring back to me permanently.I realized Dr was special, because,the day and moment i sent our details,He asked me to call my husband, after two months of No contact at all.from that point,everything changed,now my husband is back to me.
    Mr. Femi has since cast 3 different spells for my friends and all are working fine.the days whilst he is performing the spells, He is there, as he says on his site 24/7. I live in the UK, and the time difference makes it difficult to keep in touch within reasonable hours, but he is always willing to listen and cast spells.
    I am confident that the results you wish for will manifest when you contact Mr. Femi okuns,via email: [email protected] . I want to share my testimony he is more than a wizard, he is a friend, mentor and spiritual spell-caster.
