Robin Kool, known as “ropz,” is a 21-year-old Estonian CS:GO player who has been representing Mousesports for over three and a half years. In his career, he earned over $500.000 from the tournaments.

Ropz picked as the seventh-best player of 2020 by hltv.org and spoke in an interview with them to talk about their performance in 2020, how the online era affected the team, and many more.

In the conversation, ropz mentioned that playing online didn’t affect his motivation because he can play anywhere in any circumstances. While showing how much he loves the game, ropz also mentioned that his teammates call him a robot sometimes because of that.

Here is what ropz said:

“From my personal view, it’s almost as if nothing affects me when I play CS and perform at my best. My teammates call me a robot at times because of how I can just play and play, put in all the hours.

Of course, I would rather play on LAN, but playing from home against the same competition doesn’t change much for me and I keep putting in the work. I mean, we had played online leagues just a while before anyway, so it was nothing new obviously.”

He continued:

“I guess the level of motivation dropped just slightly, but as I said, I can be like a robot in this so I’m going to work hard, no matter what happens. I had learned my lessons before, when I don’t work hard it never ends up well. But a lot happened to me during this time.

I had my first ever break-up, with someone I had been together for over two years; because of not traveling I finally got time to get my driver’s license; I’ve seen more of my family, etc. There have been many ups and downs.”

ropz added:

“On a team level, of course not everyone can be like me, and sooner or later the signs of COVID started to show. I would say the first couple of losses after EPL S11 were kind of a coincidence, but then we just couldn’t pick it up anymore.

I don’t know what happened. A few of us said COVID was making us lose motivation and not care as much, but I didn’t want to blame it on that myself. If other teams could show that they were still the best, then so could we. But no matter what we tried, we even had a bootcamp at the very end, it just didn’t pan out as we wished.”
