In 2020, when the whole world was under COVID-19 influence, Good Game found itself in a somewhat different scenario. Since everything was already closed or it was getting closed, we had no ability to organize our B2B events that were held offline. Instead of that, we had to focus on online tournaments and our shop containing different influencer merchandise. In between all of that work, we were thinking about how it would look like if we approached the tournament from a different perspective. That was the moment when we decided that we wanted to take a CS:GO roster under our organization. CS:GO is a very popular game, and basically, most of our tournaments were centered around this game. So this was a natural pick. We decided to pick up at that time, an active roster of QSKE Gaming, which was actively playing ESEA League and A1 Adria League. Now under the Good Game banner, this team is really recognized in the Adriatic region, and nobody is better to tell you something about the team, than one of our core members of the GG team, aidKiT.

  • Q: Before you start talking about the game we all want to hear about, why don't you introduce yourself to the audience that follows Good Game?

A: Hello, I am Jane “aidKiT” Apostoloski, I am 19 years old and I am from Skopje, Macedonia.  

  • Q: When did you start playing Counter-Strike: Global Offensive? Was there someone that recommended the game to you or did you just decide on your own that you want to play it?

A: In early 2015, my older brother bought it on Steam and started playing it. When I saw him doing that, I was not accepting the fact that I could play a game like CS:GO. But after some time, I wanted to play it so much that I installed it on my low-end laptop. So basically, the one who brought me in was my brother and I am more than thankful for that.

  • Q: What do you think is the best thing to focus on when entering Counter-Strike: Global Offensive competitive scene?

A: For me, the most important thing is to focus on communication. With the fact that you are joining a team, it means all of you are 5 fingers on one hand. If one finger is not working like the others, the hand won’t be the same as with 5. The better you communicate, the more your team will be successful.

  • Q: You are a part of Good Game Counter-Strike: Global Offensive professional team. Can you tell us more about the team itself?

A: Yes. A proud player of the #GGFAM. The core of our team has been together for more than 2 years. 2 new recent additions are dan1 and stYleEeZ. I am very happy that we are all together presenting the Good Game team, I hope with a bright future. We focus on every tournament that we play, but our goal is to be the champions of the Adriatic region and ESEA MAIN. Everything else is just a big bonus for us. 

  • Q: If you were not playing Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, what would be your next go-to pick title to play?

A: Tetris. Just kidding xoxo. For now, I don’t have any other title on my mind.

  • Q: Are there any regional or world-known YouTubers or streamers that you like to watch or learn from? What do you usually do in your free time?

A: Yes, there are. Cacanito, Lobanjica & Bakistuta. Greeting to all of them! I learn a lot from those great persons, sometimes about streaming, sometimes about the game. I usually go out with friends, but it is not happening that often because of my grind for the game.

  • Q: How do you like to warm up before your official match? Is there any mini ritual you like to do before the start?

A: I do aim_botz & deathmatch. I am getting mentally prepared with music on and talking with my teammates, but the most important part is that I am always warming up my hands with a hair dryer.

  • Q: What was the first team that you played for? Who did it consist of and what was your biggest success as that team?

A: My first team was FaceYourFear. The players in that team were: me, pegjo, fartacus, zogra & cver4e. Greetings to all of them! We were a new team that was still learning the basics of “Team Play”. So I can say that the biggest success was that we found each other as 5 men that are dedicated to the game and are willing to practice more and more.

  • Q: How much do you practice on a weekly basis? What does your training usually consist of?

A: I can say I don’t plan hours for CS:GO. In my opinion, if I start doing that I will look at CS:GO as an obligation. If you want to succeed, just play it. My training is to practice with the team on a daily basis, practice my individual skill by playing public games, deathmatch, learning new tricks, and watch demos of all of us together. 

  • Q: And finally, what are your plans for the future of the team? Do you have a common dream that you want to achieve?

A: Ummm… Easiest question of my life. My current dream is to reach the ESEA Advanced League, win ADRIA Championship and be consistent in other matches to prove that we are on a very high level. If I tell the plans to others, that’s not such a good step to make the plan look possible.

Be sure to watch all of the Good Game matches to stay on track with the team’s progress.
