Galaxy Racer is your champion of Free Fire India Championship 2021 Spring. They pulled off a mind-blowing clutch to win the tournament. After trailing behind Team Chaos nearly all day, they surpassed them in the very last game. What a change of tides. To understand what the players went through during this rollercoaster of a final, we sat down to have a chat with them.
Q. Congratulations on winning! How ecstatic are you?
Everyone started speaking at the same time, murmuring incoherently in cheerful and happy voices. Once the chatter died down, Barcaboi spoke
Barcaboi: I swear we have no words. This is an unreal feeling. The last 2 minutes, while we were awaiting the results, felt like forever. We knew that we might just have pulled it off, but it was gonna be close. A part of us was excited to see the results, but we were also scared. I almost chewed all my nails off while waiting. The moment we got the good news, we all jumped into the air and screamed our lungs off. I’m still struggling to speak after that loud shrieking. Aah, I’m done talking. Words can’t describe my happiness.
Q. Vasiyo and Golden, congratulations on winning the FFIC twice in a row, back to back. How do you feel?
Golden: Thank you so much. Last year with Total Gaming and this time with Galaxy Racers once again with my brothers. I feel like I’m on top of the world. I’m really excited about what’s ahead of us.
Vasiyo: Thanks a lot! It was such an amazing experience. We were so worried when we had that one bad game earlier in the day when we got eliminated first. The mood was a little low after that. But these wonderful folks still had smiles on their faces. We remembered the most important thing of them all, to have fun! We were hopeful that we will be able to mount a comeback and we believed in ourselves. What a rush!
Q. Vasiyo, you seem to have developed a knack for representing the country in international tournaments now. This isn’t the first time you’ll be wearing the Indian tricolor on your back on the global level. What’s going on in your mind?
Vasiyo: Oh yes, the Free Fire World Series! How can I forget about that? FFIC might be over but the real journey has just begun; my real goal lies ahead. That is to see the flag of my country flying high. I feel privileged to be able to represent the country more than once! It’s a massive responsibility. I would like to thank all my supporters who have entrusted me with the glorious task to prove our strength in an international tournament. I will surely not disappoint you!
Q. What are your expectations from the World Series ahead?
Vasiyo: I want to reverse what happened last time. I want to dominate the lobby this time. I will make sure that we learn from the past and perform better this time!
Q. How did you feel going into the final, knowing that while a lot of top teams qualified directly, you had to struggle through the play-ins? Did that affect your confidence?
Vasiyo: It did feel disheartening to not qualify directly. We felt like we would at least be able to easily dominate the play-ins, but that too was not as smooth of a cakewalk as we expected it to be. It was a much-needed reality check. But we too did not lose hope because we had a trick up our sleeve. We still had our ace in the hole.
Q. What exactly was this secret trump card of yours?
Vasiyo: GOLDEN! It was golden! We didn’t play with him during the League Stage. For the finals, we put him back on the frontlines. A single-player changed really makes the team unpredictable for the opponents. It adds a dynamic layer that they aren’t used to facing. Adding his X-factor into the game is probably what disrupted enemies.
Q. How were you feeling about this trump card going south in the first few matches when you faced undesirable losses?
Barcaboi: It was Aman and Maryx. Their presence really calmed us down and relaxed the nerves. They kept on laughing, joking, and fooling around. This kept the vibe jolly and we were all able to focus on playing without worrying much or getting scared.
Q. Vasiyo, what was going on in your mind in that last game, especially when you decided to split up?
Vasiyo: I knew it was risky. But we couldn’t afford to just all stick together and stay hidden at the mercy of other teams. We needed to do something or the other proactively. I tried to stay on high ground for as much as possible and kept an eye on the neighborhood. I knew that at some point the split will come in handy. This helped us win against Nemesis and Team Elite. The moment we figured out that Team Chaos is dead and that the throne is up for taking, we knew we couldn’t afford to let go of such an opportunity.
Q. What was your reaction like when Team Chaos won that second booyah?
Aman: We were worried a little bit, but we knew that we shouldn’t get too distracted by what the others are doing and focus on ourselves. We got into the top 5 several times so we knew we can stay afloat if we just play it at our own pace.
Q. So what’s next planned by you guys?
Maryx: There’s a lot to look forward to. Plenty of stronger opponents are headed our way. We have signaled to the world that we are ready for a higher form of warfare. We will bring the fight to them in Singapore next month. But for now, we are just going to celebrate.
With a happy note and warm congratulations, we bid adieu and left them to their celebration.
We wish them the best of luck in the future. You will be able to see Galaxy Racer in action once again during the Free Fire World Series. Stay tuned for more updates about the same.
