Twistzz: "The EPL S15 playoff bracket with Players and NAVI is not difficult for FaZe"
Russel "Twistzz" Van Dulken, a player of FaZe, during a press conference for the ESL Pro League Season 15 playoff participants shared his opinion on the seeding in the decisive stage, where his team needs consecutive victories over Players and NAVI to reach the semifinals. In response to a question from a CSGO.com journalist, the Canadian noted that such a bracket is not a problem for FaZe.
The parts quoted are the translation from our Russian website.
The seeding in the playoffs reflects how we performed in the group stage. If we managed to finish the group 5-0 or 4-1, the situation would be much better now. The EPL S15 playoff bracket with Players and NAVI is not difficult for FaZe. We already defeated Players in Katowice and had an equal match against NAVI there.
Twistzz also noted not the best psychological state of the CIS teams, who faced negative consequences of military action in Ukraine.
Of course, now all the CIS teams have a rather tough situation outside the server. From our side, the preparation has not changed in any way. Let's see how ready they are to fight for the victory. Players and NAVI are the teams I want to beat. I don't know how they feel amid what is happening in the organizations. Only those within the teams can comment on it.
In the Round of 12 at ESL Pro League Season 15, FaZe will play against Players today, April 5, at 20:00 MSK. On April 8, the winners of this matchup will face NAVI for a spot in the semifinals of the league.
