Following on from my last post, I just read an interview over on the MLG website with Rainbow 6 Vegas 2
pro player Phobia (http://www.mlgpro.com/?q=node/232490
), in which he pretty much sums up the way I'd like to play:
MLG: Following a loss to newly reformed vVv Rewritten in Orlando, has the team approached anything differently when it comes to strategizing against such a robust roster?
Phobia: We haven't done anything different then what anybody else does. We look at what worked and what didn't, and then make adjustments. We don't try to base our strategies around the other team, because then it puts them in control. As long as our "best" is better then theirs, we don't really care who they have on their roster.
MLG: Do you think any other teams have an advantage over your guys coming into Toronto? If so, how well do you think your team has prepared for this competition?
Phobia: To be honest I really don't care who I play or when I have to play them. I have beaten some of the best teams when I was a nobody and I have almost been beaten by teams that I never thought would win a round against me. I like to focus more on my team than worry about what any other team is doing. After all, the best teams don't have a weakness, and if they do then they aren't the best teams. When I prepare for the competition I am preparing against myself. Nothing is worse than losing because you made a mistake or didn't know of a certain grenade trick or a good angle to watch an objective. If I do lose because the other team out-plays me then I don't see how I can be angry because I didn't do anything wrong.
Note that last sentence: "If I do lose because the other team out-plays me then I don't see how I can be angry because I didn't do anything wrong."
Phobia, you da man.
