What made you decide to participate in the FIWC? 
This year's new community qualifier system and, of course, the host city Rio de Janeiro!

In your opinion what do you think your chances are in the Grand Final? 
For this Grand Final there are no big favourites. Everyone has the skill. So it will be your mental strength, luck and the ability to play well under the pressure. The Grand Final atmosphere is very different from playing an online game in your room.

How do you feel about the Grand Final taking place in Rio? 
This is really the best place where a FIWC Grand Final could be held. With the World Cup in the country in a city where people breathe football, it is going to be amazing to be there.

How does it feel to have secured your seat for the Grand Final? 
It feels great because I played 127 games in Season 6 and I could combine this easily with my other activities every day.

What do you think it takes to win the Grand Final? 
It takes control of your emotions. You always have to keep a cool head even if you are trailing by 2 or 3 goals. So the mental aspect is key. Another key thing is luck.
