Registrations for the MWEB GameZone Master Series second qualifier for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare (Xbox One) is currently open. One of the teams that entered the tournament is none other than the well know Energy F34R squad. The team, who managed to place third in the first qualifier, are looking to grab one of the two remaining spots for the Grand Final on the 3rd of October. We caught up with their team captain, F34R Jakes, to talk about the MGMS qualifiers.

Team eN F34R managed to take the third place in the MGMS first qualifier for Advanced Warfare. It was a bittersweet placement for the team, due to the fact that only the top two finishers (Astra Infinite and Ventus Xero) received an invitation to the MGMS Grand Finals, leaving eN F34R just shy of a guaranteed spot. The team might feel especially hard done by when they reflect on the last game they played against Ventus Xero. 

The match between the two teams would have decided who would progress to face Astra Infinite in the finals, it would also guarantee the victor a spot in the Grand Finals. The teams were both tied up two-all on map count and we moved to Search and Destroy to decide the game, eN F34R's favourite game mode. Despite eN F34Rs confidence brimming going into the game, they lost out when Ventus Xero turned up the pressure and ran out the winners.

The game wasn't the only thing eN F34R lost to Ventus Xero, as their star player throughout the series, Kyle 'Frost' Nortje, decided to leave eN F34R and join the Ventus Xero squad. 

We managed to catch up with F34R Drew and F34R Hazards to talk about their, at the time, unsure future after the game. 

Interview with F34R Jakes - The second qualifier awaits 

Now several weeks after the above interview, we see eN F34R back at the grind with a reformed squad. The team have actively pursued hot new talent to add strength and hunger to their lineup. We caught up with their team captain, F34R Jakes, to talk about the past, present and future on eN F34R. 

Hey there Jakes, thanks for taking the time to chat to us. First off, your team narrowly lost out in the first MGMS qualifier for a position at the Grand Finals. What do you think your team's chances are of securing a top two finish in the second MGMS qualifier? 

I think our chances are really good, we finished 3rd in the first qualifier, which was a big disappointment for us. We narrowly lost against Ventus Xero and that has given us the motivation to work harder on our game and to make sure we take first place in the 2nd qualifier.

What do you think went wrong for your team in the first qualifier and what will you be looking to improve on? 

There were a lot of games we just did not clutch up and as a result we let those games slip out of our fingers. I also believe we did not play as one unit during the tournament. Since then we have been working on fixing that and I believe that our teamwork is coming together rather nicely. 

Your team has undergone some roster changes since the first qualifiers. Can you update us on your new players?

For the first occasion, in a what seems to be a long time, we have picked up a fifth player in Hashtag Eros, he is a young and talented kid and has a bright future ahead. 

Our fourth player that we decided on is none other than Intel Murphy, a former PlayStation player and a new kid on the block for Xbox. He has impressed us every time we have seen him play and we felt that it is the right time that we start to give people a chance, those who actually deserve it. He is also a very level-headed and mature player, that was important for us. 

Do you think the change in format will benefit or hinder your squad?

The removal of Capture the Flag hinders us a bit due to the fact that it is one of the game modes where we have enjoyed most of our success. We know our weakness in the other Hardpoint and Uplink, and over the past few weeks we having been working hard on fixing them. 

Who do you think will be your biggest competition going into the 2nd qualifier? 

I believe that our biggest competition in this qualifier will be Insane Gaming and inX Gaming. I think that by the end of qualifier these teams should place in top three.
