Please tell us how the roster you used in the qualifier was formed. How did you meet? When did you start playing with that roster?
Firstly, five good players from a local cafe teamed up to form Team MaNaY. Later after a couple of tournaments the first and the second best teams from my city, Team MaNaY and Team I5, teamed up to form Err0R, this happened about 2 years ago, since then we have had about 2-3 player changes in the team.

Did you need to find more members because of the ten member requirement for the regular season? How did you decide who to ask? What were you looking for? Did you just merge two teams together or select different members from different teams? How do you think this will affect training?
Yes, we did need to find more members for the regular season. We approached Golive and asked them to hold regular clan matches within Indian clans and pick out a few who were doing well. We did ask a couple of players from the local teams in our city to join us so we could train more easily.

How did you prepare for the qualifier? Did you play with other international, regional or local teams? Which teams did you train with often? How do you test new strategies before a tournament? Do you watch replays?
We are regularly practicing with the local and regional teams. We would prefer training with local teams to test new strategies. Yes, we do watch a few replays before starting our practise.

How will you prepare and train for the regular season? Will you only be training internally, since each team is required to have ten members? Will you avoid playing with other teams in the regular season?
With the new additions to the team we are trying our different strategies. We are doing internal training and we would not mind playing with other teams during the regular season.

Given that there seem to be fewer tournaments in India, do you think that other teams will have an advantage over you?
Yes, the number of tournaments in India are quite few, but we try to keep intouch with the international dota scene . Yes, we do think that other teams have an advantage over us.

Which other tournaments are you currently competing in? Which tournaments will you be joining soon? What about the SMM Grand National DotA Tournament?
We compete in all national n local level tournaments in India. If we do well at ADC this season and get a good sponsorship u will see us at most of the Asian Tournaments

Would you like to say anything to your fans? Any shout-outs to your friends?
"It doesn't matter how many Err0R'z it takes to reach the top but we will slice our way there." I stand to that and we would also like all your support this time.
