Patrik Lindberg, known as “f0rest,” is a 32-year-old Swedish CS:GO player who is known for his time with Ninjas In Pyjamas. Since January 2020, he has been playing for Dignitas alongside his long-time teammate friberg.

f0rest talked about the addition of Jonas “Lekr0” Olofsson into the roster last month and how it affected their performance during a recent interview with hltv.org.

In the conversation, f0rest pointed out that his confidence boosted up after the addition of Lekr0 even though he has lots of ups and downs. Also, he mentioned that he needs to be more consistent for the upcoming matches.

Interviewer asked:

“You’re one of the oldest players in the circuit and you’re still playing at a very solid level. Are you satisfied with your current level? How many years more do you see yourself playing? Have you thought about retirement, especially since your friend and former teammate GeT_RiGhT stopped playing professionally?”

Here is what f0rest said:

“First of all, I’m going to be playing as long as I feel the motivation to do so and as long as I still feel that I can contribute to the team I’m playing for. I think I’ve been feeling more and more comfortable.

I’ve felt a bit reignited since Lekr0 came in, that kind of boosted my confidence a little bit. I just need to figure some things out because I still have my ups and downs, and it feels like I’ve been having those for a long time.

I just need to try to minimise those ups and downs and be a little bit more consistent in the way that I’m playing. I still say… (laughs) I know I’m not nearly the best player in the world, but in my mind, I’m going to tell myself that I’m the best player in the world.”

He continued:

“And I know what I’m capable of once I get into my groove, and I still think I can perform at a very high level. Once I sort things out, you know, being a father – soon of two kids -, having a marriage and everything surrounding it, that’s something new in my career.

I’m still trying to figure out how to balance everything. But once I get those small fixes done and find a way to make everything work, I can still definitely perform really well.

I’m confident in myself and in my ability to perform. I’m not going to say how many more years I’ll be playing. I’m just going to keep playing until I feel that I don’t want to play anymore.”
