device analyzed the defeat of Team Liquid in the quarter finals of ESL Pro League Season 9 by CS:GO. In the post-match interview at the broadcast of the tournament, Astralis sniper reported that the team was poorly prepared for Vertigo, and also said that the line-up was going through a difficult period, but continued to move forward.
“We knew which cards to wait, so we prepared for Overpass and Inferno. On Inferno, we completely failed the side of the attack, could not hold point B after the established bomb. If you cannot do this, then you are not destined to win.
At Vertigo, we felt comfortable, but on the whole prepared for it in a bad way. It is difficult to equally well train three cards for a certain match, sometimes you need to prioritize. We had a good side of the attack, and we had a good round for defense. But when you play against top teams with good shooters who know how to act against you, it is always a difficult match.
Now there is a lot of talk [regarding our results], I don’t even know how to react to it. It is important for us that we continue to concentrate on the game. We are experiencing difficult times for the first time with the current squad, but we continue to move forward. I hope we find a solution. I am sure that we will succeed. ”
