Student Anatoly Khomyakov, a player of RosNOU team, shared his impressions on HardPlayZona Cup:
Brief us about the organization of the tournament itself. What did you like? What do you suppose is needed to be refined?
At the tournament, everything was well organized. The only drawback I can name is the location of the club itself – it was not extremely convenient. Besides this, everything went well.
How do you rate the game of your team?
We play too little time together to give an adequate assessment of what is happening. We need to work on many things to improve the quality of our game.
What are your team's plans for the upcoming year?
In the near future, we will be actively involved in a variety of qualifications and LAN tournaments. We are going to participate in the ESEA Main League and conduct regular training activities.
