When we asked what they felt about an all-female tournament, LovelyToonZ said that it is very fun as it is very different from normal tournaments. There is a higher chance to meet friends and fellow female gamers who are participating in the league.
Close Behind E-Sports takes their training seriously – with different schedules for everyone, they gather online to play after 9PM everyday! They scrim with normal teams and practice whenever they can to prepare for FSL Elite Main Event.
Despite the hectic and late schedule, they stay motivated and focused.
What keeps you motivated to train despite commitments?
Rairyy: Want to win and lead Thailand to be the best in SEA
Salmon Pink: I just want to play the game
Saba Blue: Wanting to be better
ComfyRoof: Want to win and be the best top laner
Members of Close Behind E-Sports are generally excited to head down to Singapore, but even more so for LovelyToonZ who has the strong support from her family who are just as excited for her!
How confident are you guys for FSL Elite? What teams do you see standing in your way of becoming Champions?
Rairyy: 100%. I’m sure Thai team will win!
