Throughout most of 2016 and 2017, SK Gaming has been the team to beat in tournaments. They often play like masters of Counter-Strike: Global Offensive and beating them requires strong plans and adaptation as a team on top of great individual skill.
As they wait to play against FaZe Clan in the grand finals of the ESL Pro League Season 6 Finals, Gabriel "FalleN" Toledo has confident words for both the crowd, his own team, and his opponents.
During a post-match interview after their 2-0 victory over Misfits, FalleN exuded confidence in all of his answers. He said that they've been in seven finals in 2017 and have won six of them, so they want a seventh trophy.
He says that he doesn't care if there's a mental advantage he has over FaZe going into their upcoming series. He knows he can win the next round, so there's no pressure after a loss.
Finally, he gives the crowd a choice. They can cheer for SK Gaming, or he and the rest of SK can silence them and turn the place into a library.
