Jeyo: 'The International is our biggest motivation'
As the first American home team to be invited to The International in Seattle this year, Complexity Gaming currently carry the hopes of the entire American eSports community on their shoulders. "Everything that we've been playing for is all for The International," states Jio 'Jeyo' Mayadang in an interview with the American organisation.
While the European teams can undoubtedly claim to be ahead in the current Dota 2 scene, Jeyo speaks of being "kind of intimidated about the Asians and Chinese. They're improving at a rapid rate by the way they train, so I'm looking forward to that."
As a self proclaimed "huge fan of Chinese DotA", DK was given a shoutout during the interview by Jeyo, who looks forward to playing against the Chinese on LAN. "I'm excited about how our style will do against them. The Chinese has the most potential to breakout in Dota 2 like they did in DotA - the amount of dedication they have is unreal and I truly respect that."
"In my opinion, DK is the strongest DotA team of all time, even better than EHOME in 2010."
Indeed, one of the ways he saw his team Complexity taking home that one million dollars would be through "confidence coming into the tournament." He insisted that "if [they're] confident and hungry enough, then [they] will definitely have a good chance at winning it all."
When prompted about bootcamp, Jeyo agreed that it was necessary if they wanted to win The International this year. "I'm looking forward to the boot-camp and I'd expect the training to be more intense than any training we have had so far."
"We really don't know what to expect but it's going to be very exciting. I wouldn't be surprised if I see China dominating Dota 2."
