TI5 Champion Saahil "Universe" Arora recently did an interview with VPEsports. They spoke about a number of topics including his new NiP roster, what it takes to win a TI, reuniting with PPD amongst various other topics.
One of the more interesting parts of the discussion came when Universe spoke about his ex-teammate Jacky "EternaLEnVy" Mao. When he was asked to elaborate on EE’s captaincy style and his vision of the game, Universe stated:
“It’s really hard to explain. I don’t really want to go into how he was as a captain. He is very intense and he is kind of a chaotic person. He has his own style and I think he needs a team to kind of buy-in into the kind of chaos he wants to play with.“
The Former EG offlaner also spoke about how OG winning TI twice, affected him.
“I mean, it’s not a great feeling, to be honest. You feel a little bit of jealousy because everyone who won TI once wants to win it a second time. Honestly, winning TI twice is a very hard thing to do and if someone is able to do it as OG have done it, it’s a really great accomplishment and they deserve it. “
He also praised Ceb's leadership qualities in this interview.
" I think what Ceb did for his team during these two TIs was really amazing and I think he was one of the biggest factors in their wins."
