IEM V Gamescom champion Germany Marcel "k1llsen" Paul has been interviewed by SK Gaming about his triumph in Cologne. He discusses the finals series against United States of America rapha, what impact playing on home soil had and explains why he doesn't have a favourite map in the current pool.

Asked what impact Belarus Cypher's absence had on Gamescom the German answers:
I really missed Cypher there because it could have been a whole different story. And also I would have preferred to play Cypher in the final, or at least Cooller than rapha, since Cypher & Cooller reached another level at the Qcon final and I would really like to face that in a final.
