Even though G2 Esports couldn't reach the final at WESG CS:GO Grand Finals, they didn't give up and showed their best in the match for the third place against Fnatic. Right after they won 2-0, we talked to Kenny "kennyS" Schrub and asked him to share his thoughts on the fact it was bodyy's last event in G2.
It was the third place decider. Did you take this game any serious as you didn’t make the final?
Yes, obviously we really wanted to finish on a good note. Yesterday was pretty heartbreaking, to be honest. We really wanted to win this event but Windigo was much better than us yesterday, so they deserved a win.
It was an important game for us because we wanted to beat Fnatic, obviously. Also, it is the last event with bodyy, and yes, we just wanted to finish on a good note. So we played like we played yesterday and every other days.
Did you feel that something was off about Fnatic?
I don’t know, I’m not in their heads. Fnatic used to be obviously better. They probably have a lot of issues within the team, internal issues or I don’t know, but they are not the Fnatic we used to know. But Fnatic is Fnatic, so they will bounce back.
So in your opinion, who is going to win the Final? Windigo or AGO?
I think it is going to be Windigo. We played them, they beat MiBR, they beat us, they have huge confidence coming into the final. They already played on stage, they are experienced players and they also super-good. And I think it is a really good team, individual-wise and team-wise. So I would not be surprised to see Windigo winning it pretty easily, even though AGO is a great team. From what I saw from Windigo, they are pretty convincing.
As you said, it is the last event with bodyy? Can you sum up your experience you’ve had across the last years? What is the best memory you’ve had with him?
We’ve won a couple of events together: ESL Pro League, DH Malmo, DH Tours. 2017 was really good in terms of winning. I mean, we could have won more and been better, but it is what it is. Winning tournaments with him was really good. He is a friend of mine, and now he is a friend of us, and we are sad to see him leave.
