A relief after a tough weekend
After what's been a tough weekend for Omaken Sports, the team qualified for the Grand Finals of PCS 1. The result is expected, but we are really grateful for the achievement made by our athletes.
- We are of course happy about the qualifying we made. In PUBG there's loads of things going on that you can`t control and that affects the result of the team, so it's kind of a relief to be a part of the Grand Finals. At the same time we are happy that we had some tough battles during Group Stage because it's important learning for the athletes, says the coach of the team, Oliver Santasalo.
The Grand Finals are just two weeks away and the athletes have to do their training to prepare for the big event.
- As a team we are going to practice together in the most efficient way as possible and work with our gameplay to be suitable for the Finals. Our team is full of experience and everyone knows how to prepare themselves to be ready for the battles, says Santasolo.
“We are one of the best teams in the world”
The CEO and founder of Omaken Sports, Joachim Haraldsen, was one of the fans watching the PCS qualifying.
- The feats of this event shows us that things are going as expected. We are one of the best teams in the world and we should be in the finals, that's exactly where we are standing now. I have to admit that I was a bit nervous about the qualifying because of the inconsistency we experienced, but the coach made me feel confident about everything being under control, says Haraldsen.
One of the changes made in professional leagues this year is that the tournaments are online only, due to the Covid-19 situation. The game developers are constantly working to make it possible to compete offline as it has some benefits for pro leagues. Haraldsen is really looking forward to do the offline events again, hopefully soon:
- There's a huge difference between online and offline tournaments. Offline tournaments in physical arenas makes it possible for our staff to be involved and present for the athletes when there's several days of competing ahead. We are really looking forward to giving the athletes everything they need around them to focus in the arenas, just as we planned for the season, says Haraldsen.
