Why fire_bot left the Major Series (85 comments)
Posted by swine @ 03:09 CDT, 26 May 2009 - iMsg
Lithuania Viaceslavas 'fire_bot' Duk played a perfect qualification tournament for the Major Series where he beat players like Germany Peter 'cYmoZz' Sellmaier. He also managed to beat Czech Republic Milos 'Zubb' Zubal in his first group match, but still fire_bot left the competition very surprisingly. fragster spoke with him about the reasons and his future in the Quake-scene.

The EMS might be the last big Quake 3 tournament. Isn't it frustrating to leave such a high quality competition in that way?

fire_bot: How many times people will tell - every time when any game is published - that Quake 3 is going to die? Many, many times! It's the same here: There will be less or more tournaments... So don't panic. But I'm not frustrated because of leaving the competition but because of not playing Cooller. It was my dream to play against him since 2002. Can you imagine how I feel after my decision now? That's right, I feel pretty bad.
