Ignis : The play they made in the B route during our match, that was pretty good.
Sasrai : If you were to choose an MVP for today’s game, who would you say it was?
Ignis : MVP… MVP… Well everybody played really well today, and I can’t really name  anyone, but Pablo won
three 1 on 1 fights, and he got us 15 rounds early on. I think I would say Pablo is the MVP.

Abaranche : In the Ban Pick phase, was there a reason why Dust_2 was chosen?
Ignis : We picked dust_2 because after we watched the match between Absolute and  Updraft, we thought Updraft
wasn’t too good with this map, and so we chose it.
Sasrai : So for the final question, can you tell up your plans for the finals?
Ignis : Well, Absolute is really strong, so we’re going to practice more, and win this tournament.
Abaranche : Thank you very much
Sasrai : Thank you very much

Team Absolute

 

Abaranche : Now we have Team Absolute’s Barce, and takej with us.
Absolute : Good evening
Abaranche : Firstly, we aren’t too clear on the details of your match, but how was your match  with Sokuseki?
Absolute : Well on the overpass we won pretty easily, but we had a hard match on Dust2.
Abaranche : Well, Dust2 was your team’s pick. Can you tell us why you picked the map, and why  you had a hard time?
Absolute : The reason we picked Dust_2?
Abaranche : Yes!
Absolute1 : The reason why we chose it… Why did we pick it again? Well, we thought that it  didn’t matter, since we could win anyway.
Absolute2 : It was because Sokuseki’s fighting style was quite unique, on the terrorist team.
Absolute1 : It was also because we were used to the map.
Abaranche : I see, do you have any questions, Sasrai-san?
Sasrai : Well, you did have a hard fight in Dust2, if you had to choose an MVP in the Dust2  match, who would it be?
Absolute : Everyone was pretty strong, so everybody is the MVP.
Absolute2 : Was there anything special that happened?
Sasrai : Yeah, did anybody do something special in the match? Did anything happen that  made you think ‘this guy saved the match’?
Absolute1 : Was there?…
Absolute2 : I don’t think so.
Sasrai : So everybody was great in the match, this is kind of like the previous interview.
Abaranche : This is a little similar to the interview with Ignis. Ignis also said something like that.  What do you think about you opponents for the finals, Ignis? So far they have taken all the finals, what do you think?
Absolute2 : Well…
Absolute1 : (Hesitantly) We think we can win this.
Abaranche : I am curious about one thing.
Absolute : Yes?
Sasrai : Vertigo, will you ban it?
Absolute2 : No
Absolute1 : We are really good at Vertigo.
Absolute2 : I’d like to play in Vertigo.
Sasrai : Vertigo might just come up in the finals.
Sasrai : So finally, what are you plans for the finals?
Absolute1 : We’ll do our best!
Absolute2 : Well there are some other tournaments we’ll be participating in, and we want to win
