Topson’s New Hairstyle, Playing with Rodjer, and Looking Up To Nisha & Quinn

In a light-hearted start to the interview, Topson is asked about his new hairstyle and says that you have to “spice it up, change it up and keep it fresh,”. 

In the next part of the interview, Topson is asked about playing with Rodjer and why he thinks the team has such good chemistry with the player. “I mean, he’s a good player it just brings, I don’t know, just good vibes, good gameplay. So it's just nice to play with. I think he’s very experienced and he has a lot of heroes that people are scared of, so it's definitely a strong ally to have on your team,” he said.

Topson also spoke about the players he looks up to in order to improve and drive some of his creativity, and named Nisha and Quinn. “I made changes of course like depending who or what team is on the top. Usually you kind of look at those the most. At the moment like Quinn, and Nisha a while back but they have kind of dropped off a little bit, maybe because they're kind of chilling a bit. Nisha in the first and second seasons, Quinn throughout this year has been insanely good, so I'm just always looking at the best players and trying to see what they do and improve on it or improve on my own game and see if there's something that I'm kind of behind on or don't see the same way and, things like that. Just having an open mind and looking at all of the good player,” he stated.

Old G's journey in the DPC WEU Tour 3: Division II has been eventful, marked by the inclusion of stand-in player Rodjer, who has evidently been an important part of the team’s recent success. Topson's interview provides some insights into aspects of his personal life as well as about his gameplay and creativity in Dota 2, such as the players he drives his creativity from. As Moving forward, Old G has one last series to play in the DPC WEU Tour 3: Division II, which will decide whether they have a chance at Division I or stay back in Division II.
