Michal Blicharz Gives Us the Most Important Message

Nevertheless, nobody blamed Michal Blicharz for taking their time, because they could enjoy a phenomenal speech. Michal Carmac started talking about semi-final of Major in Germani 2011. He explained how tough the event was, and how much emotions were involved back then. Michal Blicharz remembered that one player of losing team fell to his knees with head down. Members of winning squad started crying after a huge victory.

The significance of CS:GO passion

Carmac added that the reason wasn’t either money or fame. Back then, there wasn’t much money, and there weren’t so many people watching. He pointed out that the only reason for those emotions was a special feeling that only competitors can feel. Michal described that Esports is not much different than real sports.

He stated that CS:GO players always try to be better and to cross all boundaries. They try to be at their best every moment. In Michal’s opinion, that feeling when you become slightly better than you were is the best feeling ever.

Carmac spent the rest of his speech giving a credit to great CS:GO competitors. In addition to that, he mentioned that two players lost one of their parents before the event. Regardless, they chose to be at Katowice, because that’s the most important thing for them at the moment. That’s only one of the many sacrifices they had to make in order to be where they are at the moment.

Michal Blicharz finished his speech with a heart touching message. He said:

“When you go home, please remember to tell your father and mother that you love them.”
