G2 Esports AD carry Jesper "Zven" Svenningsen spoke about the first week of the 2017 season with Sport1, and said that he's happy to see his team move to a slower, more goal-oriented style of play.

"We played slow, which is good. Maybe too slow but I'd rather play too slow than too fast because we used to play really fast and when things went wrong they went really, really wrong really, really fast," Zven said. "We want to get away from that where we made one mistake and it becomes two mistakes and then it becomes three, four, five and the game is suddenly over."

According to Zven, the new method is a big contrast to the team's old style where players would just chase kills.

"We're trying to adjust everyone's mindset to be the team-oriented goal and have a game plan that we play towards instead of having to play...where we kill people in lanes and we kill people here and there and see champion, kill champion you know?"

Zven also weighed in on the new 10-ban system, saying it adds more variety in match-ups with teams either opting for equal drafts or trying to ban out a role entirely.

"I think the new draft system is very good. It gives more flavor and it allows teams to do kind of choose either a draft that's equal to the other team, or choosing a draft where they have one side winning," he said.

He also spoke about how he feels Group A of the 2017 EU LCS Spring Split stands up, saying ROCCAT and Giants Gaming could be bigger threats than they seem.

"I think both ROCCAT and Giants are not as bad as people think. People think they are like on the relegation level. but I think both teams are actually fine," Zven said. "I think Misfits looked okay yesterday against Giants. They were not that good but not that bad either. They looked okay I would say. So I think right now our biggest competition is Fnatic."

While Zven said he thinks Misfits are only "okay," he'll have to put his money where his mouth is on Jan. 28 when Misfits and G2 face off.
