Sh4dowehhh: Such tournaments give a huge chance for the future
Interview with the coach of the Team Ukraine Yellow Eugeniy "Sh4dowehhh" Alekseev in the discipline of Dota 2 after winning the WESG 2018-2019 Ukraine Qualifiers.
How did the WESG go for you?
I did not expect it to be so easy. Thought it would be more difficult to face Team Ukraine Blue. It turned out they hadn't been quite prepared.
Do you think it was a lack of their preparation beforehand, or were you just stronger?
Well, our core players were about the same. On supports, as it seemed to be like, we also had a small pool of heroes. It turned out that our opponents had even smaller one. It was much easier for us to play. Plus, they gave us some heroes they should not. For unknown reasons.
Tell me, what teams have surprised you?
I liked Tencent Gaming. They have almost beaten Team Ukraine Blue. Of course, Team Ukraine Blue should not have thrown their games, they should play consistently well. They are good players, and they showed not the best game. And these guys were also prepared, trained for the tournament. I was pleasantly surprised.
Do you think such young Ukrainian teams have the future?
Of course, they have. Especially such tournaments give a huge chance for the future of such teams. A push. Those teams felt that they can.
So, China awaits. Will there be any preparation for the grand final, or will you just go and your previous preparation will be enough?
You know, the main preparation is when everyone plays in his own team and constantly finds some new things. Then those things are brought together. This is preparation. And to play. I think we will play a week before the tournament, more than we had this time and everything will be fine.
