FckingMad: 'The goal for us is to be top three'
With less than a month to go before Dota 2's grandest offline event of the year, most invited teams have already started bootcamping and mTw opted for no different. An exclusive interview was recorded with the team amidst their preparations with opinions offered on the status of their bootcamp, their expectations for The International, and more.
It is all about polishing up their performance right now, said team captain Synderen, who appeared satisfied with the progress of his team. "We've tried alot of stuff - switched some roles and picks around, and played against a lot of different teams."
"We wanted to try something different, and see if we could optimize some strategies and in-game play."
No doubt with the stakes higher than ever, the team's mentality and routine at bootcamp have also tightened up. Kebap put their average day in perspective for us, as simply: "A lot of food, play play play, and then we go to sleep."
According to FckingMad, mTw have played with almost all the teams invited to The International, and when he had to make their predictions, FckingMad offered his picks for top two as Na`Vi and EHOME.
"I think all the teams are good, but for me it would be Na`Vi and EHOME. The team execution and potential of those two teams is very scary.
His thoughts on Asian favorites Zenith?
"I know alot of people overrate Zenith - I think they'll do good, but I don't think they're on the same level as EHOME or Na`Vi."
