Before their tie-breaker game to DFM at Worlds 2022, Inspired spoke to Esports.gg.
Evil Geniuses kicked off Worlds 2022 with a loss to Fnatic but have since bounced back with a second place finish in Group A. While they are yet to advance from the play-ins, EG only have to win one best of five series today to make it to the main group stage.
EG Inspired on Worlds 2022 experience
When asked about his previous Worlds experiences and how his time at Worlds 2022 was going, EG's inspired had some things to say about his preference for solo queue and the level of practice.
It's very similar, i just don't like that the Worlds are in NA because solo queue is very bad to play. I liked it way more when Worlds were in China and at MSI in Korea because then i could play the Asian solo queue; it was way more fun. Here, solo queue doesn't exist i guess you have champions queue now but solo queue i feel like its more fun.
Level of practice not a problem for Inspired
After losing to DFM and having to settle for a three way tie-breaker with LOUD and DFM for second place, EG have corrected certain mistakes in drafts and game play. They quickly banned the Yuumi in the tie breaker against DFM to avoid a repeat of the last game.
I think we thought that DFM is the team that doesn't play Yuumi at all. So that's why we opted into picking MF[Miss Fortune] and then they just picked Yuumi away. It was pretty hard to play from the draft"
EG defeated both DFM and LOUD in the tie-brekaer to set themselves up for a best of five series in the knockout round. Inspired will face his former LEC counterparts today as EG go up against the regions' fourth seed MAD Lions. A win today will guarantee them a place in the main stage of Worlds for the first time ever in their history.
