EliGE: "I think if we are all playing our game we could definitely win BLAST Premier Fall Final 2021"
Jonathan "EliGE" Jablonowski from Liquid believes that his team has what it takes to win BLAST Premier Fall Final 2021, but in order to do this they need to show all their best qualities. In a conversation with the journalist from Rush B Media, the American noted that in the course of the ongoing championship in Copenhagen, Liquid had already managed to surprise many naysayers.
I think that we can win, I mean, anything can happen. I’m sure that no one expected us to win any game and we just beat NIP so anything can happen. I think if we are all playing our game we could definitely win it. We had some really great heroics in these games on Mirage and Overpass that got us out of a lot of bad situations and I think that it feels pretty good overall. Just having that pressure relieved from us can make some great things sometimes.
Jablonowski also commented on rumors about former FURIA player Vinicius "VINI" Figueiredo joining Liquid. He did not confirm the information announced in the media, but at the same time called the Brazilian a very underestimated esports athlete.
I think VINI is really good, I think he is underrated in the community for sure, I can’t say if he’s going to be joining or not but I think that he is really solid and… I’ll just end it there.
At the end of the interview, EliGE shared his thoughts on the return to CS:GO from Valorant of Ricky "floppy" Kemery, who may soon be followed by Nick "nitr0" Cannella.
I think that it just shows that all of these players feel a lot more motivated to come back, they see a lot more potential and they feel that there will be a lot more competition and they get their competitive itch in CS a little bit better because there are more tournaments, there’s a lot of good teams out there, a lot of good players so it feels really exciting when you go to a tournament and you see s1mple and ZywOo, and how good all these teams are so I think it is a lot of fun knowing how good the competition is out there.
The next match of Liquid at BLAST Premier Fall Final 2021 will take place today, November 27, at 15:30 MSK. In the fight for the final of the lower bracket, the North American team will face off against Heroic.
