iG.Faith:practice hard for TI3,not overlook anyone
As the former best DOTA 2 team in the world, iG has been in a bit of a slump recently. In the interview with the team support Faith, he talked about his feelings about the team and plans for TI3. See below:
Q: Hi Faith, how are you? Did you and your team take a break after G-1 Champions League?
Faith: We are busy training and adapting a new vision recently. After the G-1 finished, we took a day off and returned to train again.
Q: You are the current world champions; do you feel a lot of pressure to perform personally as a result?
Faith: There will be pressure. Everything you need to do is to keep your mind calm like usual.
Q: Who do you think is your teams biggest rival at the moment and why?
Faith: Now everyone has seen games, the level difference between each team is not very big, and everyone has their own unique characteristics. As the new version is just out, everyone is busying training, I feel every team is powerful opponent and cannot be overlooked.
Q: What is the team atmosphere like after G-1? Are there any changes to your practice regimen now?
Faith: The atmosphere is as usual, after all we have stayed together so long and everyone trusts each other. The training arrangement hasn't changed much, and we mainly have discussions and summarize games together.
Q: People say that Chinese teams are really good at perfecting strategies but very slow to change to new trends. This puts Chinese teams behind the rest of the world sometimes. How does iG handle these changes in trends? Do you try to innovate and develop new trends of your own, or do you try to stick to perfecting proven strategies?
Faith: We will use others' combinations, try their play, and then put our thoughts into it.
Q: iG is very close as a team. Could you tell us what it is like living with your teammates/friends?
Faith: A group of people living together is very interesting. We can rip on each other/joke with each other, and everyone is happier.
Q: When you started playing, did you ever think you would be where you are today with all of these fans and fame?
Faith: I hadn't thought of it. At the beginning, I just wanted to have a try, because it is my interest.
Q: In a previous interview, you said you had a good impression of Dendi. And at TI2 it seemed as though iG and NaVi were pretty friendly with one another. Do your two teams still keep in touch with one another or try to practice/discuss strategies together?
Faith: Dendi is in my steam's friend list, I chat with him sometimes. But most time is discussing strategy with teammates.
Q: What are you looking forward to most in Seattle in August?
Faith: My greatest hope is playing to the best of our ability and live up to our name to leave no regrets, and continue to win honor for our country!
Q: The compendium is a big thing in the west, if it were to reach $3.2 million, what hero would you like to see added into the game and why?
Faith: Squee and Spleen. I think this hero is very interesting.
Q: What area do you feel you need or want to improve upon personally for TI3?
Faith: TI2 was perfect on all aspects. I couldn't think where we could improve.
Q: Do you have anything you would like to say to fans?
Faith: Thanks to your support for e-sports and iG, we will do our best to prepare for TI3 and leave no regrets!
