Pirean: “To all P1 fans, we’ve been losing recently… but we are hardworking and we are trying our best, so don’t worry about us too much.”

Pirean on his return to Phoenix 1 and a message to fans.

Q: What’s it like finally returning to P1? Is the team environment different now, or fairly similar to before?

As for Team Envy, I stayed there for 2-3 months and left, whereas I stayed at P1 for more than a year. There are fewer people living in Team Envy house but the house itself is bigger. As a result, P1’s gaming house feels a lot more active and comfortable, like a family.

Q: Is there anyone in particular you are close with?

I’d say Zig because we can openly talk about anything whether about the game or about life in general.

Q: I’ve seen pictures of your Homer Simpson slippers. They are impressive. Would you ever wear them on stage?

If fans like it, I appreciate it, but I also think it will be embarrassing (laughs), so I don’t think I would wear them on stage.

Q: Is it your lucky charm?

Not really - I just find it comfortable to wear (laughs).

Q: How are you and Ryu working together? I hear you guys are collaborating a lot behind the scenes.

When I’m researching around picks and bans or practicing in scrims, Ryu helps me figure out which champion picks are good in certain situations, etc.

Q: Do you bring to the table a different playstyle or champion pool than Ryu?

I don’t think I’m different from Ryu in terms of the champ pool, but I think Ryu tends to focus more on the shotcalling.

So you tend to focus more on micro-level plays than shotcalling?

I focus more on my own individual play - farming, not getting caught, and performing well in teamfights.

Q: What’s the goal of P1 right now?

Our goal is to at least secure 7th place so we can make it to the gauntlet. Personally, I want to win all of the remaining 3 or 4 more matches to avoid relegations and perform well at the gauntlet.

Message to the fans:

To all P1 fans, we’ve been losing recently a little but we still have 4 games left in the season. We are hardworking and we are trying our best here so we will win our next game so don’t worry about us too much.
