德国集训冲击领奖台 - EG|Irukandji专访

  IEM5全球总决赛即将于3月1日至5日在德国汉诺威CeBIT会展举行。通过挑战赛以及预选赛选拔后,来自世界各地的12支顶尖战队将齐聚一堂。目前,IEM5总决赛分组奖金分配已经公布。为了让玩家能更好的了解各参赛队近期变化及备战情况,cnFrag.com在赛前进行了系列采访。今天向大家介绍的是北美劲旅Evil Geniuses,场上指挥Andrew "Irukandji" Timmerman在接受采访时谈到了lurppis离开后的变化以及将去德国柏林集训备战。

你好Drew,首先谢谢你接受我们的采访,向中国的粉丝介绍下自己吧。
Ni hao,我叫Andrew "Irukandji" Timmerman,22岁,是Evil Geniuses的场上队长。

在效力于x3o和coL时期,你就是北美最好的战术制定者之一。现在你来到了EG,你觉得EG和coL在氛围和风格上有什么差异?
呃,有些老队员对于某些状况下的处理有自己的风格,但是迄今为止我们磨合得很好。队内的气氛都很轻松和愉悦,没什么好抱怨的。对于加入EG这个团队我感到非常激动,因为这是所有北美选手的不二之选。

你顶替了lurppis,他是EG从CGS重返1.6后使队伍重新达到顶尖水平的功臣。你能为EG带来哪些新鲜的想法,EG在战术上又有哪些变化呢?
正如我之前提到的,我们总是有很多不同的想法,我不会强行让队伍只有一种想法。我主要的目标就是让战术多样化,让队员更加有韧性,这样才能应对所有的问题。我想常看我们比赛的人会发现EG有很多长期贯彻的战术,也有很多新鲜的想法。

在即将开始的IEM5全球总决赛中,你们分在了死亡之组,有Na’Vi、SK、fnatic,你们的目标是什么?小组赛最大的障碍是哪支队伍?在准备的时候有没有事先观摩对手的录像?
首先,我们确实是看了demo,不是针对战术,而是理解对手的思路和风格。我们在柏林集训,不过我怀疑没有太大的针对性效果。我们当然希望能小组出现,拿到更好的名次,不过我可以肯定地说我们来欧洲可不是为了前六名。所有的参赛队伍,无论是我们小组,还是另一组,都是最强的队伍,我们要专注于每一场比赛,最后和所有参赛队伍的目标一样,我们的目标就是能走上领奖台。

Jordan最近因为共用账号而被ESEA禁赛,会不会影响到队伍的训练日程?对于ESEA的自定义地图会不会准备不够充分?
问题不在于他被禁赛,而是ESEA在赛前两周突然决定选择de_lite和de_hell这两张地图,对于我们而言这五张地图都比较头疼。我们会尽可能地训练,希望在集训的时候能获得更多的经验。

谢谢你接受采访,期待你们在德国取得好成绩!还有什么要补充的?给中国的粉丝说两句吧。
首先谢谢我们的赞助商:Intel、SteelSeries、Kingston、MSI、Bigfoot Networks,希望2011年能重游中国!

Hello Drew, thanks for taking the time to do the interview, and let’s start things off by introducing yourself to the Chinese fans here.
Ni hao, my name is Andrew Timmerman (alias Irukandji) and I am the 22 year old in-game leader for Evil Geniuses.

You are one of the best strat callers in North America when you were playing for x3o/coL, and now you are playing EG. Do you think there is any difference in the atmosphere and style between EG and coL?
Well, some of the old school guys on EG have a different way of approaching certain scenarios and situations, but it's worked really well so far as we've been able to mesh together a few different ideas and styles of play. The atmosphere on EG and coL are both really light and enjoyable to play in during practice so no complaints there either. I am also definitely really excited to be on EG as an organization because it really doesn't get any better for an American gamer.

You replaced lurppis, who was often given the credit of bring EG back into a top-tier team after their comeback from CGS. What fresh element of tactics and strat-calling you will bring into EG and do you think the EG under your command will be different from before?
Well, like I said before, we are mixing together some different ideas, but I'm not looking to come in and completely change around how the team approaches the game. My main goal for the team is to make sure that we are versatile enough in our tactics yet resolute enough in our mental approach so that we can handle anything we face. With that said, however, I think people who've watched my teams and EG before will see a few long-standing strats, but also quite a lot of new ones that we're implementing.

In the upcoming IEM5 Global Finals, you guys are placed in a tough group with some of the best teams in the world such as NaVi,SK and fnatic. What will be your goal coming into the tournament? What teams do you think will be the biggest obstacles in group stage? Are you guys watching the demos of other teams in preparation for the tournament?
Well, to start, yes we've started watching demos not really to anti-strat, but more to understand the tendencies and play styles of the teams we'll face. We're boot-camping before the event in Berlin, but I doubt we'll get any good ideas about how the teams in our group will play from that. We obviously want to get out of group play with as strong of a record as possible, but I can firmly say that we're not going to Europe in hopes of only making Top 6. All the teams in our group, and in the other group for that matter, are all extremely strong so we have to focus as hard as possible for each match, but, like every other team at the event, our primary goal is finishing on the podium.

Jordan just had been banned in ESEA for sharing account; do you think this event will affect your team’s practice schedule? Do you think EG will be able to get enough preparation with scriming off-client and practicing on custom maps for ESEA matches?
Well, the problem isn't that he's banned, but it's that ESEA League has chosen to set de_lite and de_hell as the maps for the two weeks before the event meaning it's been extremely hard for us to find scrimmages on the main 5 maps. We're doing all we can and just hoping that we can get the most out of our boot-camp.

Any last words or comments you want to give to the Chinese eSports community?
Just want to thank our sponsors: Intel, SteelSeries, Kingston, MSi, and Bigfoot Networks and say I hope to get to go back to China again in 2011!

Again thanks so much for doing the interview. We are looking forward to see your action at Germany. Good Luck in the tournament!
Thank you!
