In the build up to Dreamhack Summer 2011, Andreas “Brodholm” Fredholm of the Reason Gaming Heroes of Newerth team has recently featured in an SK Gaming interview speaking in depth about the game in general as well as the Reason Gaming side and their tendencies in the game.
Heroes of Newerth has gone from strength to strength since its release last year – as has the Reason Gaming side which features some of the biggest names in the game right now. The interview gives you a great idea as to the feelings of the guys and where they’re hoping to be in the future. Here’s a small taster of the interview:
You’ve joined the ranks of Reason Gaming 4-5 months ago and since then proven yourself as one of the best support players on the scene. Does it bother you at all that the mid players, the sidelane players or the carries are the ones that get most of the communities attention? Or do you think that’s not the case?
“I definitely think that’s the case. But I don’t know if it bothers me that much. I just try and focus on my role. When the support is playing good, everything runs smooth and almost no one takes notice. But it’s when you are playing bad people start noticing that the wards aren’t up and so on. But that’s just the way the game works. So when no one complains, you know that you played good. This is just something you have to accept when playing support.”
Reason Gaming is regarded as a team that likes to sit back and play the farming game, featuring your favorites Valkyrie and Gladiator, rather than adopting a more aggressive playstyle. Do you agree with that statement? Is that the playstyle you’re the most comfortable with? Do you have any aces up your sleeve that you’ve prepared for DreamHack Summer 2011.?
“Well, I’m not sure if I consider us to be a turtle team. It’s not like we say “lets turtle” when we are picking. The problem is that we usually make some mistakes in the lanes so we have no option to play defensive or we lose the game. We are often behind in the beginning and then take over the game the further it progresses.
But what we lack in lanes we make up for in team fights. I would consider us to be one of the best teams when it comes down to team fights.
If we have any aces up our sleeve? Well, you will just have to wait and see :P”
