Welcome everyone on this new interview done by Zicomo. Recently we successfully finished our Dota2 Season III and today I have with me none other than the captain of the Champion team Hello Moto.
Hello Sava. Can you share with us your team lineup and the roles each player playing?
Sava: Hello! Our team consists of three Bulgarians, one Swedish and one Serbian player. Me and PSTM are taking care of the support roles , while FAILETZ , Cilium and Quix are busy carrying the team. We don't have any specific role for each player (like who is always mid , who is always on tri-lane etc.) We just put the player with his best hero.
What made you guys feel that you could work as a team?
Sava: Mostly the competition, the passion for the game and the lust for success! With common goals every one could work together.
Do you practice with any local teams? Any points that you look for while choosing your opponents for practice?
Sava: No, we just search random scrims with teams we think are good. As far as choosing our opponents for matches its completely random.
How did it all started as a HelloMoto (like your first tournament or first game together)?
Sava: It was me and FAILETZ looking to start off a new team in Dota 2, we contacted some people we thought they were good and just started playing.
How many hours do you guys put in practice to play at the level you are currently playing?
Sava: As many hours as we can. We don't know a number, but at least 2 games a day is pretty okay for any team to keep a good form.
Are all the players from your team full time dota players or they study, work?
Sava: Well nobody is working at the moment , we have people who are studying , but they are currently in summer vacation.
You have recently won JeeSports Season III Dota Championship. How does it feels?
Sava: Feels great , knowing that you won something makes you always feel good.
Did you find any teams competitve enough to your level in this Season?
Sava: We had some tough games , but nothing we couldn't handle.
Any changes you would like to see in upcoming JeeSports tournaments?
Sava: I hadn't to deal with any of that , so I don't know. But as long as the tournament ended successfully , everything is good.
Which are the other tournaments that you guys are playing now?
Sava: We were playing The Defense 1 day ago, but we didn't manage to advance. Now we are currently in the GosuLeague division 1 and SLTV Pro division.
You managed to win Darer and draw with mTw. Do you think you could go further? Did you guys put extra hours of practice before facing those two giant teams?
Sava: Not really, we did not expect that we could convincingly beat Darer and have a draw with mTw. About the practice, we just went there like it was the next match , nothing special about it.
Were you guys nervious while facing the top tier or the professional teams?
Sava: Feeling nervious in game is bad , so we try not to step off our average game.
Any tournaments in which Hello Moto desperately wants to play in?
Sava: Hmmm , don't really know , and I don't follow them mostly , any lan event is fine I guess.
Did some sponsors contact you so far, after your quite good last wins?
Sava: Yeah , we are currently working out a deal with GamersLeague :) . And I think we will keep the details for now.
Valve adds new heroes in their updates does that affect your team meta game?
Sava: No drawbacks luckily. Yeah , I think it affects everyone's meta game.
So, do you guys manage to change your meta game while playing big tournaments different days?
Sava: Sometimes yes, sometimes no. Depends if the new added heroes are played by someone from the team.
Which language does your team use to communicate since your team consist of players from different places?
Sava: English mainly.
Don't you feel that at LAN events English communication might cause a problem for your team? Like at LAN events you might be sitting next to your opponents and when you guys communicate in English or tell command, your enemies might use it against you?
Sava: Well I don't think they can hear everything if they are at least 2-3 meters away. Plus we must keep every playing informed about everything in the game.
Will we be able to see HelloMoto at DreamHack Winter 2012?
Sava: I’m sure, I hope so!
Any shoutouts in the end of our small interview?
Sava: Shoutout to my team mates , to GamersLeague and their sponsors SteelSeries and Mamoz.no. Thanks for the interview!
You are welcome, we hope to see you in JeeSports Dota 2 ChampionShip Season IV.
Thanks to all our readers and keep an eye open for next interviews with famous casters and players.
