Recently we have gotten news about a new Female DOTA 2 team on the rise! Please welcome 5 Elements female team! We’ve had the pleasure of conducting an interview with one of their players, “mew” and she has this to share:
Please take some time to answer some of the following questions for your interview. First off what happened with your old female team, Queens of Paint? Why did you leave them?
Team Queens of Paint is still active and kicking ass with their new roster! You can check them out on facebook/queensofpaint . Anyway, with 4 other girls I was one of the founding members of the team and I started my competitive “career” together with them. After a fun but tough year and being a captain of the team for a while I’ve decided that it’s time for me to try something new. I felt I wasn’t happy and resigned from being captain and later we went inactive. No drama, no epic battles, just the feeling that you had enough of something and want to move on, I needed it as a player and they needed it as a team. We are still good friends.
After learning that you’ve left your own team, you went to create your own team. Can you give us a little information about your new team? How did you girls meet? Who plays what role in your team?
I was really into the idea of joining a male/mixed team! But shortly after that an old friend of mine told me that she is the captain of a new female dota 2 team and was looking for a fifth player in 1st position. Unfortunately I didn’t gather my own team, but I was lucky enough to get picked up by “Akaxia”. The other girls from ’5 elements’ I met for the first time once I joined the team.
For your new team, what are some of your team goals? Will we be seeing you girls in any tournaments?
Our most important objective is practice and knowledge! Breaking up the alleged laning and heroes. We practice almost everyday for least 3 hours, sometimes more. We still need to learn a lot and improve faster so we are meganerdtryharding haha! Participating in open online tournaments(like BigPoint Battle or EIZO)/ online female tournaments ofcourse/going to a lan tournament/hopefully after some nice results getting sponsors one day And most important thing of all… to have fun together!
How different do you think your new team will be compared to your old team?
The playstyle of the two teams differ in many ways. In QOP we usually played a 4 protect 1 strategy, whereas in 5E we go for a more aggressive team-fight oriented line ups. Of course since I was in QOP for a year, we played in a lot of tournaments and had great results (7-0 on Fem.League Summer 2013). I have high hopes and am really determined to so the same with 5 Elements, since our practice schedule is more consistent.
Thank you so much for your interview! We at Fesport wish you girls the best of luck! Any shoutouts or last comments?
In my opinion – gaming is gaming. There is no female/male dota, it’s all eSports! Try to have fun, make friends and enjoy! Shoutouts to ALL girls I’ve played with, my special ladies “Dannyn” and “Cephyrine”, ts channel donator “tRICKED@DrunKinDOTA” and all my tryharders who like to party long hours!!! (raod to1k party haha) Milly loves you! <3
