Gotfrag Interviews Trigger Post EuroCup

image: gotfrag_smallIt has been a hard week for Michael Sowa, aka Trigger, as he has gone from hero to zero in the space of one weekend. Previously voted the number one CoD2 player in Europe by his peers last sunday he left the EuroCup Lan Finals in shame. Despite being the hot favourites, Speedlink crashed out against Check Six and Tek-9 and Trigger was a shadow of his former self. Various rumours have been spreading about the team's future after such a shocking blow so Gotfrag's Liam Crowley decided to speak to the man himself to get to the bottom of it.

In this in-depth interview Trigger explains in detail how it felt to fall so utterly short of their expectations in Denmark and what was running through their heads as they left without a win. Read on for a small extract...

You mention nerves, but you guys have played well at numerous big events before. Was it the pressure on the team to perform after losing to Dignitas in the Crossfire PrizeFight Challenge?

It was just for me about nerves. I think the other guys were calmer then me, but still Nightwalker and Fuchs couldn't perform well. I have asked myself these past days why I couldn't control my nerves. I played several big events and never had this problem, now they are here and I don't know why, or how to get rid of them. I think and hope it was only a bad day for me and thats why i couldn't control it. If it's coming up again, I have to see what I can do against it. But let's hope its not coming again. Without beeing arrogant, I lead my team sometimes to the victory. Now i ermined with -10 stats. If this becomes the "normal" it's all the time a 4 on 5 and that can't be the way.
