ChrisJ On Their Recent Performances, Working With mithR, And More

ChrisJ On Their Recent Performances, Working With mithR, And More

GGRecon sat down with mousesports’ Chris "chrisJ" de Jong to talk about his team's recent slump, bringing in a new coach in Torbjørn "mithR" Nyborg, the motivation of playing Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS:GO) during the global pandemic and the upcoming matches this week.

The international team has been on a downswing of performances, failing to reach the playoffs of an event recently, while having been one of 2019's best teams. When asked what the problems that they are currently having are, the Dutch player has to smirk. "If it was really that easy to name, we would've probably sorted it by now", elaborating on several issues from the recent departures of their coach and having some struggles with their roster. "I feel like we are making steps in the right direction though," he shared. 

ChrisJ showed himself still hungry for improvement this year. "Honestly, I'm not thinking about a break yet. I just want to play a lot of CS right now and do good. Yeah, the schedule has been busy as hell but to be honest, if you don't go deep in tournaments it's not that busy as if you were going to the playoffs every time. We have a lot more downtime compared to the teams that are having deep runs."

When asked if the team were held back by playing online and if their performance would improve if tournaments were possible offline, ChrisJ said "I'd like to believe so but it's easy to say as well. You can't change it anyway now. We're going to play on LAN again eventually but it doesn't look to be soon. I don't want to complain about it anymore."
