Excel UK’s Jungler Taxer: “We are finally able to show our level of play.”

EU Masters officially opens it’s virtual doors today. The play-ins have been completed and teams are ready to show what they are capable of in the group stages.

One team that has already impressed without even playing a main stage match-up is Excel UK. The LEC sister team battled through the play-ins last week and secured themselves a spot at EU Masters by going undefeated.

Excel’s jungler, Taxer, could not have been any happier with the performances of his side.

The jungler is looking to make an impact in the tournament.

He says: “It feels great, we are finally able to show our level of play and we are playing as a team. I knew if we played to our level in practice we would have a good performance, but it was hard to know because the play-ins were so stacked this split.

The Dane also adds that individually he cannot complain about his displays so far in the competition.

Personally, I think my performance has been good overall. There have been some questionable mistakes, but I’m pretty happy with my performance.

Last splits winners, Misfits Premier, also came from the play-in stages. In fact, three of the four semi-finalists had to fight their way from the bottom last EU Masters. So, many are arguing that by not advancing straight to the group stage, it increases the chance of a teams success.

It seems that Taxer also believes that the extra games his side had to play benefits the organisation in the long run.

I think going 6-0 helps our confidence a lot and if we keep the momentum going it will for sure help us in groups. We have got more competitive practice than the other teams in the groups, which I also think is a small advantage.

Excel UK will not be in action today. However, they will be sure to keep an eye on their British rivals and semi-finalists Fnatic Rising. An organisation from the United Kingdom has yet to secure an EU Masters trophy. Nevertheless, if anything is to go by in play-ins and the UKLC then Excel and Fnatic are certainly contenders for the crown.
