Swani在2023年初担任G2的临时教练,并率队拿下了 IEM科隆和卡托维兹的冠军,如今在年底离开了全职教练的职位。

虽然 G2 在 BLAST Premier World Final 的表现可能让人失望,但是在我们的采访中,Swani对过去一年充满了怀念,并且看起来很兴奋能够在下一年在家里为他们的“家人们”加油。

对你们来说是一个令人失望的结果,你感觉如何?

很糟糕。我觉得两场比赛我们都可以掌控局面。

对阵FaZe,我们本应轻松赢下比赛,而在对阵NAVIInferno地图上我们对对手的策略有很好的把握,我们知道他们在做什么,但最终还是输了。然后在Nuke地图上,我们的第一把长枪局没有成功,我们就这样输掉了比赛。

感觉Aleksib在Inferno地图上的关键回合起到了决定性作用,那个回合发生了什么,以及对团队的心态有何影响?

我们很快就调整好了心态,我们知道这种情况可能会发生,我们只是太想快点追上。最后,他在与nexa的1v1中获胜,显然,我们的士气有所下降,我们不再像是同一个团队的人了。我们仍然试图全力以赴,但如果我们赢得这一回合,比分将是9-3或10-2,我们就不会现在在这说这个了。

这是你与团队的最后一场比赛,这样的结束是否让你更加失望?

是的,当然。我觉得我们在CS2中打出了一些最好的CS,因为人们看到我们在CCT中表现很糟糕,所以我对我们的表现感到非常满意,如果继续这样打下去,你可以看到他们明显的进步。我对nexa的融入感到非常满意,如果他们保持同样的活力,他带来了很多活力,我认为他们明年表现不会差。

更积极的一点,你对整个年度回顾如何?

我自己非常高兴。人们说我们不稳定,但如果不稳定意味着赢得科隆和卡托维兹,我愿意接受这样的说法。你可以问问Heroic,他们一直稳定地进入前四,但我敢肯定他们会选择那些奖杯。我不知道为什么人们总是说“你们不稳定,你们不好”,祝你们好运能复制两个重要的IEM奖杯,如果你认为你们能做到,祝你好运。

明年你会在家为这些小伙子加油吗?

当然,我与NiKo共度了三年,与huNter-共度了四年,他们对我来说是朋友,是家人。我会观看比赛并为他们加油,始终祝福他们一切顺利。在过去的三四年里,我与他们相处的时间比与家人或女朋友在一起的时间还要多,所以他们与我息息相关。



Swani came into 2023 as the interim coach of G2, now, at the end of the year, he departs from a full-time position as their coach as a champion of both IEM Cologne and Katowice.

While G2's time at BLAST Premier World Final may have ended in disappointment, in our interview with him he reflects fondly upon the past year and seems excited to be able to spend next year cheering on his "family" from home.

A disappointing result for you guys, how are you feeling?

Pretty shit. I feel like we had both games in our hands.

Against FaZe we should have easily closed it, and here, Inferno we had the perfect reads, we knew what they were doing and we still lost. Then on Nuke the first buys didn't go our way and we just threw the event.

It feels like the Aleksib clutch was the big swing round on Inferno, what happened during the round and to the team's mental?

We were fast to get it over with, we knew rounds like this can happen and we were just hunting too fast. In the end, he won the 1v1 against nexa, and obviously, your morale goes down a bit and you're not the same team anymore. We still tried to do our best, but if we win this round it's 9-3, 10-2, and we're not having this conversation.

This is your last event with the team, does that make it more disappointing that it's ended this way?

Yeah, of course. I feel like we played some of our best Counter-Strike in CS2 and because people saw us play like shit in CCT, I'm really happy with how we played and if they continue playing like this, you can see a clear progression. I'm really happy with how nexa has been integrated and if they have the same energy, he's bringing a lot of energy, I don't see why they can't do good next year.


On a more positive note, how are you looking back on the year overall?

I'm very happy myself. People say we're inconsistent but if inconsistency means winning Cologne and Katowice, I will happily take it. You can ask Heroic, they were consistent top four but I'm sure they would take the trophies. I don't know why people always say "You are inconsistent, you are bad", good luck replicating two big IEM trophies and if you think you can do it, good luck.

Will you be cheering the boys on from home next year?

Of course, I have spent three years with NiKo, four years with huNter-, they are friends for me, they are family. I will watch and cheer for them and always wish the best for them. I spent more time with them in the last year three or four years than my family or my girlfriend so they are tied to me.
