EGL London - Gunshi Interviewed After Coming Top 12

    Today we witnessed one of the biggest shocks in the Call of Duty community when the number 1 seed for the tournament, Infused, was knocked out of the tournament by Fariko Yin, a side that had basically been unperforming all event.

    Infused now take a top 12 placement and for one of their players, Tomas 'Gunshi' Jones, it'll go down as one of his worst gaming career defeats despite attending events for over 3 years. We had a quick chat about what happened this weekend.

    Gunshi, you've just come top 12, what happened?

    It was a mixture of both players choking and we just didn't play as what we should be playing like. We've had less practice than we would have liked over the last few weeks. Going into the tournament we've only played for a week and a half and even then it's been not consistent. It's not a valid excuse because we should have done better but when you have teams like Imperial 2 have been playing solid for months then they deserve to win. This tournament has been weird for results.

    Is this your lowest ever tournament placement?

    By a mile, before this the lowest I've come is fifth at the EGL gamerbase LAN we had when me, XLNC, Rumsey and Necrome under performed. It's come as a bit of a shock because I'm so used to placing highly. A lot of our attention is now focused on MW3.

    Did you expect to get 3-0'd by Imperial 2?

    No we didn't expect it but we lost 2 maps because one player did some major choke moments that resulted in us losing. These choke moments cost you LAN at the end of the day but that player had been playing sick all weekend so we can't really point the finger, it happens.

    What happened against Fariko Yin?

    I don't even know where to start. S+D for example we were 5-1 up and then we generally just lost it and eventually lost 6-5. I couldn't believe it happened. The last map was Firing range demo and the reason we lost 2-0 was because our team is a slaying team and not a team that are setup for objective therefore people ended up playing for themselves and not the team.

    Is this the classic too many allstars don't make a good team?

    Yep, you need people who are going to do dirty work for you like when we used to play in Fnatic, Doped was always on objective. I knew before picking up this team that it could be an issue but I didn't expect it to be this bad.

    Will you stick together as a team?

    We'll have to see over the next couple of other days because MW3 is due for release and there is other stuff coming up. Hopefully we stay as a team but it'll all depend on how players in the team take the feedback that needs to be given because something has to change in order for us to be a proper team.

    What have you thought of the event so far regardless of your score?

    It's good event, completely the wrong setup for a LAN. It's meant to be a big hall with everything going on but this is all seperated and I can't really describe it. Doesn't feel like a big LAN, just feels like almost a social LAN. The location is amazing but not enough space inside. The LAN here has also been a bit weird because we've experienced some lag. It's not an excuse but it could definately be improved but I think that's more down to the game, roll on MW3.

    Any shoutouts?

    Everyone I've teamed with in the past, our sponsors at Infused and anyone who supported us going into the event and sorry we didn't do better.

    XLNC and Gunshi will hopefully stay together as the teams going to certainly split.

    Just shows even top teams choke with a lack of practise up to the event.This should prove that Imperial.2 should become imperial.1 IMO though.
