The sniper of the Team Spirit CS: GO roster Abdul degster Hasanov shared his impressions of victories at the IEM Katowice 2021 tournament. The player also told who his idols are and how he copes with the excitement before important matches.
“Regarding the game with BIG: we didn’t expect it to be easy. We never count on this. We just wanted to play our game. I am very glad that we won 2: 0 – this is a very good result for us. But this does not mean that we are already finished. We have entered the group stage, and now we will need to prove everything in front of the most top teams. “
Degster stated that his first idol in CS: GO was ScreaM:
“When I was little at all, my primary focus was on ScreaM. A little later, I noticed s1mple and started monitoring him. I watched Sasha and I really liked the way he played when he moved to Liquid. Even though he did not play computer games at that time, he still followed how his career was developing. Now, if I start naming the players I’m targeting, they are s1mple, device and ZywOo. “
Hasanov also said that earlier the team was more worried before important meetings, which did not go to their advantage:
“I remember the first game against NAVI at the first RMR tournament. The whole team there, and I too, was worried. Excitement manifests itself in different ways. Young players don’t necessarily have tremors in their arms or legs – I haven’t. You can hurry up out of excitement, not play coolly and calmly. Remembering the match against NAVI, we can conclude that when you are in a hurry, you make stupid mistakes. And it is much easier for top-level opponents to punish you than young players. Now, perhaps, there is excitement, but I will say that it is not from nicknames and not from tags.”
