After a bewildering evening with a lot of emotions from all parts of the community, we had a sit down with Maikelele to find out how he has coped with the situation and how it feels to be on trial for one of the most successful CS:GO teams of all time.
So Mikail, how did it feel to be contacted by NiP?
It feels pretty damn big! Probably the biggest thing that has happened in my career so far. It has always been my goal to play with the best, and now I get the opportunity to try out for NiP. Simply put, I am going to take this chance and make the best out of it.
What is it that you can bring with you to the team?
In spite of what some people might say, I am a very positive individual and I like to spread joy within a team. That is what I want to show NiP. Something more concrete than that is my AWP. I feel that it is going to be my main contribution.
What are your own expectations for this trial period?
I am a person with a winning mentality and my goal is to stay with NiP and win it all. I want to elevate the team and help us take our game play to the next level. I know I have some really big shoes to fill, both for the team and the community, and I am happy that NiP chose to give me this chance.
