ESN: Hello Carbon. Before any questions, would you like to introduce yourself for the people that don’t know you.
Carbon: Hello, my name is Guilherme "CarboN" Bastos. I'm 24 years old and I have played competitive CS since 2008. I started in CS 1.6, where I played until the release of CS:GO. At the beginning, I didn’t really like CS:GO so I moved from Cs 1.6 to League of Legends, where I stayed for 3 years. I only began playing CS:GO in 2015 and since then it's been my game. I played CS in part time until August 2019 and then I had to choose between following my career in Pharmacy and quit playing because of the schedule or follow a career in CS:GO. Since i am here, you know what decision I made.
ESN: Since your new team is recently formed, how is the practice going?
Carbon: By now the practice is going well, the evolution of the team in 2 weeks is huge. I lost all my hair, but it was worth it. I think we are in a good place but it's difficult when you play with less experienced players and must teach them, especially in a system like mine.
ESN: So far which team or teams you think are the strongest to win the league?
Carbon: Other than ourselves, I think there is BPRO or Famous5. I think these 2 are the teams with a higher level.
ESN: Do you think this League is a good place for amateur teams or semi pro teams to compete?
Carbon: I believe this league is important for the development of the lower teams in the scene. CS is not only about Tier 1 teams and players. If no one bet on lower level players/teams, eventually the players quit.
ESN: Since you are used to playing much higher tournaments and league, are you enjoying our league? What are your expectations for your team in the league?
Carbon: By now I’m enjoying the league. I like the schedule flexibility, as it should be always like this in online leagues. It’s sad that some organisers forget about the importance of that, especially for semi pro teams. I’m happy that you are the ones that care about players. My expectations are high, I would say I will be mad if we don't win, regardless that I understand that we are a recent team and have more to work on. I can see a defeat against one or another team, but we will fight to win.
We wish CarboN and his team the best of luck in the remainder of the league!
