AVANGAR player Dauren AdreN Kystaubaev told why the teams from the CIS do not show good results in the playoffs of CS: GO majors. In an interview with HLTV.org, he stated that this is due to lack of experience.
“I think this is a lack of experience. Performing in a group stage is one thing. But when you play an important match in the playoffs in front of the audience and you feel that you can’t win, then psychology turns on. Teams from the CIS are never afraid, but when you play like crazy, it does not always bring results. It works when you play in the group stage like that, where everyone is careful, but nobody is afraid of the playoffs. I think this is the main problem. ”
From August 23 to September 8, StarLadder Berlin Major 2019 is held in Berlin. The prize fund of the competition is one million dollars. AVANGAR has already played three matches in the group stage: a team from Kazakhstan defeated Complexity Gaming and HellRaisers; only mousesports managed to beat AVANGAR.
