This time, we had a chance to interview the support player for Team Acer LoL.pl Piotr 'Acer | SuperAZE' Prokop about his feelings and how prepared the team is for the upcoming Gamescom event in Cologne, Germany.
Hi there, can you give us a small introduction about who you are and your experience with League of Legends?
Piotr 'Acer | SuperAZE' Prokop: I'm Piotr "SuperAZE" Prokop, support player for Team Acer Poland. I have been playing LoL for about one year and a half. I can remember that leveling the account to 30 wasn't entertaining for me and it took a long time. So I've been level 30 for about a year.
I've taken a look at your account, "Acer SuperAZE" and it lists you as 1558 Elo. How did you manage to do that?
SuperAZE: Yes, it's true that my main account only has an Elo rating of 1558 in solo queue, but like other professional players, I have a few smurf accounts with a higher Elo rating.
That's interesting, would you be able to tell us your highest Elo rating?
SuperAZE: No, that's a secret, sorry (laughs).
How were you approached about joining Team Acer LoL.pl?
SuperAZE: There isn't a simple answer for that. Let's just say that I've known LOL PRO (DOTA PRO) and 760 for 2-3 years from playing DotA where we were team mates for a period of time. To add to that, when we started to play LoL, we were playing together then as well. Since that time we've kept close to each other and we finally decided to play as a team.
So you knew them from before LoL. Did you always like to play support?
SuperAZE: In the beginning, I liked to play any role with any champion. When I mastered playing supports, is when I really started to enjoy it.
Onto Gamescom then; how have you guys been practising for it?
SuperAZE: We have been playing scrims against some good teams, analysing enemies, and thinking of how to surprise our opponents. Taking all this into account, I feel that we have prepared for Gamescom quite well.
Out of the other seven teams competing in this event, who do you think that you'll have the most trouble with?
SuperAZE: Our first game against SK Gaming will be really important. As you know, the losers are out of the tournament. All the games that we'll play will be very hard for us.
Concerning your picks and bans, will you stay with what you're comfortable with, or will you try new strategies?
SuperAZE: We would rather stay with our stable picks and bans.
Who do you think will place in the top 3?
SuperAZE: M5, CLG.eu, and I hope Team Acer Poland!
Do you have any last words or shoutouts to close off our interview?
SuperAZE: I want to say thanks to Team Acer, Adidas, Bigfoot Networks, Nvidia, 4NetPlayers and Roccat for their support. We want also to say thanks to our fans. Thanks for your time and good luck!
