Broky's winning interview: "Hope we can come back stronger and go for the second major!" Exclusive

We talked with FaZe Clan's Helvijs "broky" Saukants right after his historic win over NAVI in the final battle of the CS:GO season at IEM Cologne 2022. A five-map show ended with FaZe victory — 3:2 Inferno (16:13), Overpass (13:16), Ancient (16:19), Mirage (16:9), and Nuke (16:14).

[On winning the tournament]

It feels good to win. I enjoyed every map here. Of course, it's exhausting, but I think it was a great run for us to win this tournament.

I think Bo5-finals are great for tournaments like these. If there's a scenario like this: five maps instead of a 3-0, and not like 16:4, 16:5, I think it's good.

[When you understood that FaZe would certainly win?] It was unclear till the end. I don't think I really even realized myself, what we did this year, so maybe it's going to hit me some time later.

[What's next?] I'm not sure, but I think we need the break. We had a long season this year, the first season. I hope we can come back stronger and go for the second major!

[Broky's best moment from the grand-final]

When I pushed mid and killed four from behind, it was a crucial moment for me and mentally for the team. So I think that is one of the main things for me.

I think intense finals are the best. It was so emotional! Adrenaline is pumping, and everything is so close, 14:14... It's unbelievable.

[On Ancient]

I think they should change something else. This last change didn't help. For anyone, Ancient is still CT-sided. When it was 5:15, one of my teammates said that if we make it, is going to be a legendary comeback. Unfortunately, we failed in the overtime, but we're happy that we even came back.
