During the span of the event, Sheever shared a few thoughts what hosting feels likes, how she is new to it and about her future plans. USH of SNA talks about how he thinks SNA is a great team,  how he is not actually a member of the team anymore and his ideas about Dota.

Interview with USH of Sneaky Nyx Assassins

USH isn't actually part of Sneaky Nyx Assassins anymore but was still playing with them when they qualified, hence he decided to make this his final appearance on the team. USH is playing with Natus Vincere.US these days, he is only 18 years old and wants to commit to eSports. He is still great friends with ixmike and the others of SNA, the team is based on more of a brotherly kind of chemistry where everyone gets along well. Ixmike, who by the way is not grooming his mustasche despite common belief.

At first USH was playing as much as possible to get his skill level up, but he later transitioned into evaluating his own replays and analyze other teams. With SNA he used to discuss everything with the team in a Skype group. Since then Brax has replaced him in SNA and USH believes he should be a good fit for the team.

Interview with Sheever

Sheever, who has been a caster for quite some time now, has recently been transitioning more into an analyst, panel member and interviewer often seen at various events. This is her first time hosting an event, something she was nervous about. Her preparations for this includes many things, for example, practicing beforehand by introducing teams out loud by her own. She thinks her experience casting helps with taking on this newer tasks. She has also watched other hosts, such as ReDeYe to try to pick up a few tips and tricks to help her along.

Furthermore, she is looking towards moving to Stockholm, Sweden due to there being more eSports opportunities. She would prefer to focus on Dota as she classifies herself as a "mono gamer" where she goes all-in on just one game. Before Dota 2, she was a World of Warcraft "mono gamer".
