I got a chance to talk to Kagirii from The KT-Ls see how she and the team were feeling after securing their place for week four.
Beckwin: “Your team has been giving us dominant game after game so far in the CCL. Heading into these games against Easy Money was there anyone you were particularly worried about or were you all feeling pretty confident that you’d take the series?”
Kagirii: “I’ve been pretty confident in my team but I was a tad worried about a potential Tim (Heroes of FItness) Cho’gall.”
Beckwin: “It seems like we got the ZaneHyde Cho’gall instead. What’s the general vibe of your team knowing that you’ve secured a place in week four? You’ll be going up against Mewnfare’s team, Upstanding Citizens. Anything about their team concern you?”
Kagirii: “Our team has been pretty confident throughout most of the tournament - aside from Tatski and I who freak out before every match. I think we’re all just excited to be in the finals and we’ll see how things go!”
I also took a moment to speak with Kyle Fergusson about his time in the CCL and how the team is feeling after being knocked out of the league.
Beckwin: Unfortunately, Easy Money had a difficult time throughout the CCL. There was some promise in week one but things just didn’t seem to click. Now that your time in the CCL is over, how’re you feeling about the whole experience?”
Kyle Fergusson: “I had a lot of fun getting to solo lane and double soak, not something I get to dedicate time to with solo Storm League streams. Getting to work on Yrel and getting back to Leoric after years away was the most rewarding. The biggest lesson was just how powerful a team can be when everyone is in their main roles. As ZaneHyde put it, we won a lot of drafts, but we just didn’t have players dedicated to those particular heroes. Easy Money was sporting three main tank players, one assassin, and one flex. Support mains on the enemy side made a huge difference in what a team could pull off.”
Beckwin: “Despite having multiple tank players on your roster you seemed to adapt fairly well. What was your team’s mindset going into this set against The KT-Ls, the powerhouse of the league.”
Kyle Fergusson: “We were pretty broken. We knew from the start that The KT-Ls would be our toughest matchup and while we took a game off each team before, we didn’t find encouragement for our team dynamic. We debated whether or not we should ban Yrel and Ma’ganis but the call was made that the enemy just had too many good heroes to choose from anyway.”
Easy Money certainly had a difficult time in the Celebrity Clash League and unfortunately, they won’t be making it to week four but they put up a good fight and gave us some solid games. We were still unable to see Mochrie’s Tracer, people don’t want him to play it. The KT-Ls continue to seem unstoppable as they head into the finals.
For the next series of the night, we had Upstanding Citizens going up against Down to Dongle and it was an excellent set of games!
