joinDOTA: How are you preparing for the Minor?
qojqva: Personally I made sure to play a lot, both in pubs and also 1v1s against other skilled mid-laners. As a team we scrimmed a lot and strategised about the new patch.
joinDOTA: How do you estimate your chances at the Minor?
qojqva: I think we have good chances of doing very well. Everyone is feeling confident so it's gonna be a fun event!
joinDOTA: How do you like the changes that two teams from the Minor are going to the last Major?
qojqva: I think it's a good decision overall. If your team is in the zone and doing well you get rewarded right away.
joinDOTA: As a conclusion: How did you like this year's DPC and what would you improve?
qojqva: I think the winner (or maybe top 2) of the last major should definitely be invited to the next major. If there was a way to stretch out the tournaments just a little bit, with qualifiers not starting two days after travelling home from a major, I think that would be a good change too.
joinDOTA: Alliance weren't playing in important tournaments before this season and surprisingly proved their skill by the start of this season. What changed?
qojqva: I think we as a team just started clicking together more and more. We all tried hard and results followed right away with qualifying for two Majors.
joinDOTA: Do you think you can do even better next season?
qojqva: If we keep improving at this rate I think we can become very, very good, yes.
joinDOTA: Do you think you'll qualify for TI directly via the last round of Major and Minor tournaments?
qojqva: It would be cool to not have to play qualifiers but even if we don't do well in the Minor/Major, there's still a qualifier slot that I am certain we will win.
joinDOTA: What do you think about the competition in the TI qualifier, if you don't qualify directly. Do you see yourself as the favourite?
qojqva: I think we are the favourites, yes. It's still gonna be tough since the qualifier has good teams in it but I am confident we will do well
joinDOTA: What do you except from the first TI on Chinese soil?
qojqva: It's gonna be insane I think. I want nothing else right now than to compete and give my absolute best at that tournament.
