We have spoken with the squad captain of PUBG Mikel “Aros” Arostegui, to ask how they approach this challenge;
“The truth is that it has been 3 weeks of many emotions and especially to learn from our mistakes against teams of great renown. Now it’s time to study, train and prepare with great enthusiasm this final phase in which surprise is our main goal.
We supply our lack of international experience with a lot of work, but we do not give up competing at the highest level. We hope to get one of the three places for Berlin and show that the Spanish scene can compete face to face against the best in the world. “
During the next three weeks the team will carry out specific training, in addition to a bootcamp to prepare thoroughly. We hope that the Spanish fans support us during the 3 days of competition where we will play all for everything.
