Gamereactor is in São Paulo right now to cover the Rainbow Six Pro League Season 3 finals, and after the first match between Brazilian side Team Fontt and Japanese team eiNs, we spoke with the former's Gabriel 'Cameram4n' Marcal to talk about how they prepared against the APAC opposition.
"Yeah, yeah, we studied them a lot, the days before," he told us. "It's a different play style, because they don't have like experience with the top teams in the world like Penta and the other teams, so it's their first experience, they did pretty well. They played very aggressive, we were prepared for it. The first round was two minutes and 10 seconds, the Hibana was already inside the bomb, so we need to be careful with that, but we were prepared, we studied them a lot, and that was good for us."
We also asked whether the local crowd was a big boost, to which he responded: "Yeah it's a big advantage [...] because we have the crowd on our side. They're cheering for us, they kind of moved up like a bit, and yeah they pumped us up, so it's good for us. It's the best sensation I've ever had like playing an international match. We were playing in Canada and Cologne but it wasn't the same. We have like the sixth player playing for us, which is the crowd, so yeah it's good for us."
Do you think the Brazilian teams can win the competition with this home advantage?
