In his livestream on March 13, 2021, iceiceice stated that it was weird for TNC to not qualify for the Singapore Major as he had not thought about it.

“So, what was the biggest surprise for me in the regions? It’s TNC not qualifying. I kinda thought that TNC would qualify even with.. like the new roster right. So, yeah it’s kind of weird to TNC to not qualify.”

Despite stating that he did not have enough knowledge about the games and the happenings in other regions like the EU, he felt OG would qualify for the Major and there was something that the general public did not know about the two-time TI champions.

“I think OG will like.. qualify for the next Major. You guys would be surprised if you guys knew what I knew but yeah OG will qualify. I think Nigma will be stronger as well.”

OG, whose players had been longing to play in LAN events, will be missing the first offline DPC Major in 14 months.

“South America. Is Hector in beastcoast? Everytime I think of the SA scene, I think of Hector, that guy is like.. the best carry in SA. He’s carrying the whole SA on his back. Hector man, Hector is good. I don’t know how to say, Hector is like a machine, that’s like the best way to put it. He sees creeps, he goes to creeps and then he carries the game.”

While talking about the NA region at the end, iceiceice jokingly showcased himself as the most superior. 

“In NA, you have EG. This team has like iceiceice. Look at the teams, you have iceiceice + 4. (laughs) That’s the whole scene in one sentence.”
