Loading...Hey Mimi, How is fnatic coaches and IGL try to prevent the almost-collapse that happen in sao paleo from happening again? Is the team looking hard on ways to improve (and focusing on the future and avoiding being complacent) and avoid slipping like SEN, Gambit & other big teams did after they won their trophies?

Loading...Thoughts on EMEA League competition? Many say Americas is the strongest right now, so how far behind are EMEA teams other then FNATIC and NAVi being top contenders like LOUD, NRG, LEV, 100T? Also EMEA League will be a big change of pace from LOCK//IN with 9 matches over 8 weeks on stage. What would the weekly schedule be like for the team before match days during this period?

Loading...My question is for mini: Going into the event, I thought Chronicle would be playing info initiators like Sova and Leo would be playing flash initiators like Breach. What was the thought process behind setting the roles for those two players?

Loading...My question is for mini: Why don't you guys like playing any initiators like Kayo on a map like Split? Also how do you think Alfajer is setting into the sentinel role? Bonus question: Do you ever intend to change your name from mini to Mini? Keep up the great work!

Loading...My question is for both: i know you have been using the light shield strategy for some time now, who was the person that orginally suggested it and why do you think it was successful for you guys this time around compared to other events/teams (NRG) who have used it in the past? Thanks! And congrats on the win :)

Loading...for cojo: I am asking Cojo since I am unsure whom to direct my content-related questions to at fnatic. Could you also advise us on whom we should approach for such queries at fnatic in the future? What types of content can we expect from fnatic this year? Their content output was slow and infrequent before this year. The VCT vlogs were posted almost a month after the tournament ended, and a similar pattern was followed for the voice comm videos. Additionally, can we expect more videos featuring fnatic players, such as the Family Feud and Ceadral to Radiant videos they released this year?

Loading...My question is for the both of them, How do you expect to improve a team that’s already competing at championship level? Is it difficult making new game plans when you’ve shown your full deck during competition? How do you humble the gentleman after such an incredible run so you can look ahead on new competitions? When will we see a “Boaster” walk out from everyone?

Loading...for cojo: fnatic has often been associated with having "honeymoon" phases, from the addition of magnum and derke to the addition of alfa and enzo. Now again, after the victory of fnatic at lock-in, some people have brought this narrative back of the fnatic squad overperforming due to this honeymoon phase with each of their roster changes. (most notably by Suygetsu in the finals interview at lock-in) especially considering how just winning five matches won fnatic the tournament instead of having to go through a normal split and then a VCT event. What are your thoughts on this "honeymoon phase" narrative that people bring up from time to time? Do you think that the squad has always gone through honeymoon phases, or is it mostly that the squad loses because of their own faults and mistakes rather than the expiration of such a honeymoon phase?

Loading...for mini i wanted to ask what happened on lotus against loud. Anderzz tweeted he expected the comp from loud so how did you guys prepare and what went wrong, from what boaster said on stream it sounded like nerve affecting comms but what is your takeaway from that map

Loading...For Mini what is the dynamic between you boaster slk (and anderz for lockin) and the team rn for preps strats and overall macro of team. does each person have a specific role like one person is strategist one looks for antistrats one for player dev etc cause earlier i think i remember you saying boaster leads the strategy and you assist him and prevent him for going too far (triple smokes on bind)

Avatar for HeroicBastard
Loading...Hey :) first of all congratulations on the win, big showing, hope it makes you guys deservedly very happy. To cojo, as this is a employment/management question. Anderzz was "only" joining you guys for Lock//In and is currently not associated with the team, correct? do you plan on working with him together again in the future? do you plan on bringing in another coach, in addition to mini and slk? To mini. what do you think of the viability of gekko in pro-play? He seems very enjoyable in ranked/normal, but pro is a different ball game at the end of the day. as the league is starting soon, I dont expect too many details, but maybe just a short overall assesment would be very nice. thank you, for answering and doing this to begin with. have fun and success in berlin :)

Loading...Hello both, congratulations again on winning an international LAN. For Mini: Do you think we will see more adopters of the Harbor/Viper comp? Do you find it easier to adapt to new agents, or new maps? How important is staying ahead of the meta when it comes to international tournaments? For Cojo: You've been in charge of several esports titles for Fnatic. What are the transferrable skills you've taken with you to each game? What achievement are you most proud of in your career? What is your thought process when you sign players / construct a roster?
