After about four and a half hours of play Jonathan 'EliGE' Jablonowski was happy with the victory, but also extremely exhausted.
- Really tiring, I feel like I'm still catching my breath. I feel like I just got done with a workout. That was really intense. A lot of scrappy close rounds and I'm really happy that we pulled through.
After 'shox' benched himself not long ago, Liquid has not been able to find a replacement. Luckily they were able to get 'YEKINDAR' to sub-in at IEM Cologne, and 'EliGE' is more than happy about that.
- I think that he brings a lot of intangibles that people don't see as well, I think that he's a very smart player. He's very talkative and analytical. He's good at reading the game and reading their setups and helping mid-round. So it really gives me a lot of confidence when I have someone that's in those roles, and that is telling us all of the info and giving us the reads. So yeah, he's helped us a lot.
