Fight Night Heroes: August 7: LFW vs. Close to Death
Heroes Fight Night Week 14 is today starting at 8pm CT/ 1am UTC and will feature two heavyweights in Looking For Work and Close to Death as they will duke it out for a hefty haul of bits; an amount that has grown to 29,692 to be precise! Looking For Work blew Team Good Guys out of the water in Week 13, but Close To Death has much to prove and won't go down easy.

Before we watch these teams brutally massacre one another in the Nexus, I got a moment to ask Fury and Keenan a few questions. Hopefully the only cheese we see today is coming out of this post and your refrigerator (and if you're lucky, maybe even from your local pizza shop!) 

Fury, Captain and Tank for LFW

AD: What has the journey been like for you and your teammates getting here?

Fury: We have been having a great time continuing to playing Heroes together and having fun. The most important part about all of us still playing Heroes even after HGC ended was that this game was still fun for us which it has been thanks to the community and all the events.

AD: What would winning this Fight Night mean for you and your teammates?

Fury: Winning would mean the world to us, we can afford to eat more pizza with extra toppings.

AD: How has your team prepared for the opposition, Close to Death?

Fury: We're going into tomorrow with zero draft plans as usual and hope our washed up skills will carry us to victory. Close to Death better have been scrimming otherwise this will be a sweep of a series in our favor :)

AD: Is Qhira a character you’ve practiced/looked into drafting?

Fury: With the total amount of hours we have practiced Qhira as a team...*cough* zero games. I think this hero will be picked every game and if CTD ban her then they will get Uther/Ana to the face every game.

AD: What is the greatest topping combination for pizza?

Fury: The only pizza topping is pineapple of course, that's the whole reason pineapple's were created for this world.

Keenan, Captain and Assassin for Close To Death

AD: What has the journey been like for you and your teammates getting here?

Keenan: It has been arduous. RedRobot fell in and out of his peanut butter addiction multiple times throughout the season. There was one point where we had to restrain him because someone tried to take his ‘smooth and creamy’ away.

AD: For those who aren’t familiar with your team, what are some things you’d like them to know about your squad?

Keenan: Our team is built on friendship. Who needs experience to win games when you have friends that support one another?

AD: What would winning this Fight Night mean for you and your teammates?

Keenan: Validation, my friend. There’s some debate out there whether Close to Death was truly the 2nd best team in Div S because Looking For Work did not get a chance to play us.

AD: Nerves effecting you knowing you’re going against former HGC players? 

Keenan: Not at all. We have played them many times. They may have the winning record, but we have a secret weapon... we’re going to dump 3 energy drinks into Cookieman and unleash him.

AD: Is Qhira a character you’ve practiced/looked into drafting?

Keenan: Practiced? No. Are we going to take her? Absolutely.

AD: What is the greatest topping combination for pizza?

Keenan: Well, Hooberman puts uncooked dough on his pizza, so I guess if we are talking about combinations and not single toppings … then he would probably pair his uncooked dough with raw eggs.
