Q: What is the biggest regret of your game career?
Q: How do you deal with anti-fans?
Q: How hard was it to let Xpecial go?
Â Reginald: Benching Xpecial was the second hardest decision I’ve ever made. After we decided to go with Gleeb, I reached out to curse to make sure that Xpecial had a team to go to. He is a great player and will do well on Curse.
Q: Was benching Chaox the hardest decision in your career?
Q:Â How is Gleeb doing in scrims and such? Does he match your expectations?
Â Reginald:Â I didn’t expect Gleeb to do well in scrims and I thought he was average solely because he was an amateur … (very similar to what everyone else is thinking) . Not only did he exceed my expectations , but the entire team’s expectations. He brings much more than just his play.
Q:Â What did you see in Gleeb that motivated you to pick him for TSM?
Â Reginald: Gleeb is hungry and he really wants to prove himself. He is motivated, productive and very vocal. If Gleeb can continue to do what hes doing, he would bring more to the team than anyone currently on it.
Q:Â How hard was it to bench TheRainMan?
To Clarify: Chaox, Xpecial, Oddone and I wanted to scrim and practice more, TRM wanted to solo queue. When we disagreed, TRM decided to step down.
Q:Â Were you surprised when Oddone decided to step down or had it been in the works for some time?
Â Reginald:Â I was extremely surprised. I had a meeting scheduled with him that day to talk about the split. It was the same day that we muted all of the streams where Bjergsen and Dyrus were crying on stream. I’m really happy that he wants to stay with the team and help me coach the team. Oddone stepping down was not planned.
Q: How much can you bench?
Q: Will you do more vlogs and content on TSM’s Youtube page with the team?
Q:Â Did you try to convince Oddone to stay as a pro when he decided to retire? Was that his solo decision or was it a team decision?
Q:Â Where do you see TSM placing in the summer split considering CLG/Dig/LMQ have turned this whole off season upside down?
Q: What is the average day in the life of Regibro?
I help the team with their rotations and overall strategy. ( Something we didn’t so well at) . I definitely want to look for a full time analyst though. It’ll help the team even more if we can have several people helping them.
I spend 16 hours a day enjoying myself because I love my job =D. If I was more efficient though, I could probably complete all of my tasks in 8 hours.
Q: How are scrims going for TSM?
Q: What is going on with Amazing right at the moment?
Q: Why was Gleeb chosen over Xpecial?
Q: What do you think of the “end of an era” response from fans?
Although it saddens me that our fans are unhappy with our decisions, TSM’s goal was always about winning worlds. Avoiding roster changes would only be a step in the wrong direction. Our goal seems very far fetched, but if we don’t try to improve … we’ll only fall further behind. For the most part, we only have roster changes when it is completely necessary . ;(
Q:Â Did you consider buying out Diamond from Gambit Gaming?
Â Reginald:Â Didn’t consider Diamond because he has a wife and if I had a wifey, I wouldn’t move to the US. 2) LMQ has good strategies and is really good at executing what they plan. I’m guessing they will be top 3-5
Q: What do you think about Dignitas’ buying out Shiphtur and ZionSpartan? Is fixing their solo lanes enough to get them to compete with the top 3 of Spring split?
Q: Do you follow your own instinct and analysis when making important team-related changes, or do you take your team’s thoughts into account first?
Â Reginald:Â I usually follow instinct on decisions that the team cannot decide on. I always ask the team for feedback before making any big decisions. As a team , its important that everyone is on the same page.
Q:Â How do you see All-Stars going this year? What do you think will happen with SKT being a slump and C9 not having Hai? Do you think OMG might sweep All-Stars if they surprise other teams with their playstyle?
Â Reginald:Â No Opinion of Allstars tbh. I don’t really care who wins, I’m just extremely excited to watch it. I hope SKT wins I’m a big fan of them. Losing Hai is huge for C9 because he’s their late game shot caller, Link is also much weaker than Hai.
Q:Â There has been a rumor about Krepo being one of the try-outs, was it all but a gossip or an actual thing? If so, how did he do?
Q:Â What are your thoughts on the current TSM roster, do you think that Amazing brings the needed shot-calling? Do you plan on working on TSM’s pick and ban phase?
Q:Â How do you truly feel towards CLG/HotshotGG, etc.?
How do you feel about the rivalry between pro teams now?
Â Reginald:Â Its not even a rivalry anymore sadly… It was a lot more fun when there was animosity and the fans were hyped about it. The pros are too afraid to trash talk because of the backlash from the community. Doublelift is the only player allowed to trash talk because everyone thinks hes actually joking.
Q: Why did you chooseÂ Gleeb over Daydreamin, Sheep, etc?
Daydreaming never impressed me besides his crazy blitzcrank.
Gleeb because he will motivate the team .
Q: Did you consider some other junglers from EU or just Amazing? And if yes who?
Q: What stood out in Gleeb out of all the other supports?
Q: What’s your coaching strategy with TheOddOne from here on out?
Q: With Bjergsen away for All-Stars are you worried that the lack of time to build team synergy will impact you further than just the roster changes?
Â Reginald:Â I am very worried that we will not have as much practice as needed for the split because of our new roster .. But lets be honest… season matches don’t really mean anything until playoffs unless we’re like last.
Q: Why pick Amazing over Nightblue3?Â
Amazing has LCS experience and its too soon to have 2 non LCS players =D.
