We got in touch with eevv from smiling, who offered some in-depth answers.

Could you describe your team ? Who's playing what ?
Only half of the players in this team have played in low. Our medic had around 1k hours when he started playing in smiling, but we saw potential in him -- we had a tough time finding medics, especially those who would keep track of ubers.
Our common lineup is:
oben - pocket scout
rag! - flank scout
ryan - pocket soldier
dave - roamer
eevv - demo
froggy - medic

Going into the finals what do you think are your strong points ? In terms of playstyle, maps...
Our strongest side always seemed to be chaos -- the ability to somehow get momentum from even ubers, to turn the tide, et cetera. But, of course, as we had to fight the better teams in low that doesn't work as well. Some teams have forced us to play their game; to play passively. Examples of those teams are Monkeys With Attitude where they were able to slow or crush our momentum. Winning against them felt like an accident, because of the absurdity of caps, but we won against them in playoffs again showing us that we might be more stable than otherwise thought. In other words, it used to be raw DM/agression but better teams forced us to use strategies and play passively.

Going into the season, did you expect to make it to the final ? If not, how far did you expect to go ?
Preseason we had no expectation as there were many issues. However we did well in the first minor tournament which was the preseason one; we got 2nd place only to lose to Russian mid sandbaggers, classic. The more games played we had stacked, the more confidence we were gaining as apparently we were doing better than we thought. We just wanted to get into playoffs, but somehow we overshot into the finals.

And what do you think of the opposing team ?
Seems like they have few players that played in mid, even fewer after a recent ban. Underestimating a team in finals would be naive, as both teams had to go through approximate troubles to get here. They have a lot more experience from looking at match histories, but majority of it comes from highlander. It would be foolish to think that highlander is completely useless for 6v6, because a lot mechanics do carry over. I imagine the games being very close as the grand finals mentality will be prevalent.

Any closing words/shoutouts ?
Shoutouts to ikidu the psuedogerman, shoutouts to the furry j_, shoutouts to my soyboy Tamir, shoutouts to CBT.

Officiers I stole your bees and Shuffles played Good cop, Bad cop with our answers :

Could you describe your team ? Who's playing what ?
Bees : Well the team was made 3 years ago by myself and Extrasolar, it started out as a fun team where we'd play with extrasolar as a flex like how lowpander played. We just kind of stayed together and got more serious over time and shuffles took over leading the team about a year and half ago. This season started out with a core of me roamer, celreo pocket and shuffles on demo but we had to adjust after restriction being places on higher div highlander players. The roster we settled with is kren flank scout, me pocket scout, lersu (Princess Luna) roamer, Celreo Pocket, Shuffles Demo and Donuskus medic

Going into the finals what do you think are your strong points ? In terms of playstyle, maps...
Bees :Things are a bit shaky going in to finals after our main roamer got hit with a 2 week ETF2L ban after playing with an edgy alias, so for finals we're bringing extrasolar back in to play roamer. We're still confident we can win even with the last minute roster change. Our biggest strengths are shuffles being a DM monster on demo, and our ability to capitalize fully off of number advantages.

Going into the season, were you expecting to make it to the final ? If not, how far did you expect to go ?
Shuffles : Yes, we expected to make final.

And what do you think of the opposing team ?
Shuffles : Opposing team are slow and uncoordinated.

Any closing words/shoutouts?

Bees : Shoutouts to the Cool crew, the tri-force and to Chester.
Shuffles : I'd like to thank all officers that have been a part of the squad and Jim Vickers for mentoring.
