VRP eSport wants to leave Venezuela in style
During an interview with ProGamers.life, team player and content creator Daniel Molina offered his words, talking about how it felt to qualify, how they are preparing for the competition in February, and what their expectations are.
“These last few weeks had been a bit hard, especially for having lost in the loosers final in the first eClub Qualys, but we knew we had another chance and we had to work to get that classification”, declared Molina.
“When we reached the loosers final in this second Qualy we knew that we were playing everything for everything and that this time we couldn't escape. Although at some moments in the matches we felt that this classification was going uphill for us, it was in the 84th minute of the second leg of the loosers final, when we scored 4-3 (6-4 on Global), that we realized realize that we had already achieved the goal and all that remained was to celebrate.”
“It was a moment I will never forget. It was very emotional with tears, laughter, screams, a bit of everything, because what we achieved that day is pure history in eSports in Venezuela."
“Now, after having achieved this classification, all that remains is to continue training and wait for February when the eClub begins. We are going to start in the Third Division and our goal is simple: work our way up to the First Division. We know it won't be easy, but we want to leave Venezuela on top."
