With less than a week to the ESL Clash of Nations Bangkok 2019, we managed to have a quick word with NutZ and Kyxy to have a better understanding of Reality Rift and their expectations heading into the Clash. Check it out:

How do you feel representing the Malaysia/Singapore region in the upcoming ESL Clash of Nations?

NutZ: It feels great to be competing in a LAN tournament for sure. I like offline events.

Kyxy: I feel excited and proud to represent Malaysia/Singapore. I want to do my best and make my country proud.

How confident are you in winning the whole event against the top teams in the Asia-Pacific region?

NutZ: Confident. Every team participating in this tournament is about similar standards. We’ve fought these teams quite a bit in scrims and officials, we have a pretty good understanding about them.

Kyxy: I am very confident to win this tournament because I believe our team Reality Rift is the best.

Who do you think will be your strongest opponent? Or who do you wish to play against the most?

NutZ: Strongest opponents are probably going to be Adroit or BOOM Esports. They were doing pretty decent in the DPC qualifiers from what I see. I’d like to play against Oracle the most though. I need to teach QO some more lessons.

Kyxy: Every team will be tough for us if we lose focus and not play at our best. I wish to have good games against any team that we are up against.

What are your thoughts on a tournament like the ESL Clash of Nations where the best teams in the region are put against each other?

NutZ: Very positive about having a tournament of this scale. They are not the biggest scale for sure but it gives tier 2/3 teams the exposure and something to compete for. We’ll need a lot more of such events.

Kyxy: It is good and creative, I personally like this idea. Hope that we can have more similar tournaments to present our respective countries. I believe everyone love to see their own country do well in an event.

Lastly, do you have anything to say to your fans?

NutZ: Thank you fans.

Kyxy: I want to thank my fans who have been supporting me for such a long time. I will do my best to make you guys proud and be sure to support me, support Reality Rift!

Reality Rift will be competing at the ESL Clash of Nations Bangkok 2019 from the 25th – 27th October. Be sure to show them your support! All matches will be broadcast in English on ESL Asia’s Facebook, YouTube and Twitch.
