R0nic Shares Expectations Ahead of MistGames Heroes
Astralis Talent Coach Mathias "R0nic" Pinholt shares his thoughts and expectations ahead of MistGames Heroes of Lofoten 2023, a LAN tournament in Norway, for his team of aspiring players.
He discusses the talent line-up first opponent, strengths, and areas they want to improve.
How do you look forward to the tournament up there?
- We're looking forward to seeing our level against other talent teams.
- We've played against PORSPECTS and Young Ninjas recently, but we've never enjoyed playing MOUZ NXT. We really want to beat them.
- Also, we want to show our level at LAN, as it's our first LAN together as a team, so it's a test to see what level we're at.
What do you need to focus on?
- We just need to focus on playing our game. We need to do simple anti-strats and ensure our in-game reactions and solutions are good and that the atmosphere is good. That's clearly the most important.
What do you need to improve this time to go all the way?
- We can put less emphasis on our preparation when we're not yet so cohesive with Xyp. So the most important thing is to ensure we stick to the in-game agreements we've made and play our own game most of the way.
