The world of esports has never been more competitive than it is now. With more games played professionally and more investment in the industry, it’s a very exciting time to an esports fan.
At CDKeys.com, we’ve teamed up with one of Europe’s leading teams: Epsilon Esports! They’re powerhouses in tournaments across CS:GO, Rainbow Six and FIFA 19 with plenty of incredible wins in the bag. So, how about we introduce you to the team?
First up, it’s the In-Game Leader of CS:GO, SPELLAN.
Epsilon Esports: SPELLAN
Could you give us a brief of who you are and where you’re from?
Hello, I am Teodor ‘SPELLAN’ Nikolov, I’m from Bulgaria and I’m the IGL of Epsilon CS:GO
What games are you playing right now when you’re not training?
To be honest, right now I am not playing any other games. I prefer to chill and reset my mind when I’m not playing with the team.
How did you get into pro-gaming?
It was pretty simple, I just put a lot of hours into the game and always motivated myself that one day I can reach the top level. I believed in myself and when I became better, I got an invite from a professional team.
What made you want to be part of the Epsilon Esports team?
I saw that the players here are very talented and just need a good leader to show them the right way. I knew that if I step up my IGL role in this team, it can become really strong and it’s kinda happening already in the pretty short time we’ve been together.
What’s your big aim this year in esports?
My main goal for this year is to qualify for as much as possible in big LAN events and prove ourselves in as pros in CS:GO. I want us to compete against the bigger teams and reach top 20 in the world rankings list.
What one piece of advice would you give to someone who aspires to be a professional gamer?
Always believe in yourselves, practice a lot, put more hours into the game and just take it seriously like it’s your normal job. If you do this, everything will pay off.
What’s your favourite game of all time?
CS:GO of course 😀
