It's been a long, winding road for Fnatic. From the phase of funnel compositions to Rekkles's absense from the main lineup, Fnatic have learned how to rely on each member individually but none more than Caps. Caps has shown his prowess on a multitude of champions throughout the Split, showing he could be the focus of a funnel comp or hold his own while the team's AD Carry farmed away. Fnatic are now known for their 2v2 mid strategy, but it would have never peaked without the consistency of Caps.
Whether he's biding time for Rekkles to come online or carrying the game on his own shoulders, Caps has performed. As the Finals drew to a close with a 3-1 victory over FC Schalke 04 to secure first in the Summer Split as well as first seed for EU at Worlds, Caps spoke about his experience in Madrid, what he thinks will happen during the Regional Qualifier, and what it will take for Fnatic to go far at Worlds 2018.
Congratulations on the MVP! Rekkles has won it twice in a row, but now it's your turn. How does that feel?
Do you think Fnatic's teamplay has contributed to you becoming MVP or do you think people judge you more on your solo play?
You played quite a few matches without Rekkles this Split. Do you think that not having him by your side attributed to people finally starting to notice you?
When the stadium started chanting MVP, did you realize what they were chanting?
You went with a similar roster to Worlds 2017, but now you'll have Hylissang instead of Jesiz and the addition of Bwipo. How do you think your new roster is going to affect this year's experience at Worlds?
In the post-game interview, you mentioned that things are a lot better behind the scenes now. Could you give us a bit more insight into that?
It just makes people less selfish because a lot of the time, when you play it's very easy to blame others and it's very easy to focus on what's best for yourself
Do you think the additions of Bwipo and Hylissang on the team has helped change the mental energy?
Thinking back to where you were last year, do you think that skill-wise you've become a better player?
When we interviewed you earlier this year, you said your top three midlaners were Perkz, Nukeduck and Sencux. What was it like coming into a Finals this year knowing that your lane opponent wasn't Perkz?
How do you think Nukeduck played today?
I feel like we were unstoppable.
Sencux was your final player in your top three. How do you think he performed yesterday?
Speaking of Nisqy, during the post-game interview Rekkles mentioned that he thinks Splyce is going to take the Regional Qualifier, whereas you're voting for Schalke. What do you think about that prediction?
With your current roster, do you think you can make it to the Semifinals at Worlds this year?
It depends a lot on finding the right picks, so we're going to try our hardest to find out what is what and just stay strong mentally.
