HObbit on reaching the main stage of IEM Katowice 2021: “The last thing I want to do is play with Astralis”

Gambit Esports CS: GO player Abai HObbit Khasenov commented on the team’s advance to the main stage of IEM Katowice 2021. According to the esports player, the team did not expect to win the match with mousesports after the defeat on the first map. Khasenov told about this in an interview for the official group Gambit on VKontakte.

“The first match we had was with the Brazilians TeamOne. First of all, they were afraid of their aggressive play. They could have lost, because they “go through”. For the rest, we knew we were stronger than them. In principle, the game was easy, to be honest. ”

“Well, of course we wanted Renegades, it’s obvious. We sat watching how they played with mousesports at Inferno, and, of course, drowned for Renegades, because it seems to us that they are weaker individually. Well, we lost the first map, we expected to impose our own game on them, but it turned out the other way around. On Inferno, honestly, there was not even any hope when they began to gain rounds in a row, and quite confidently, and despite the fact that this was their peak. They won the second map by a miracle and on the third they were already sure of victory. ”

“In a tournament like this, it doesn’t matter who you play with, but the last thing you want to do is play with Astralis.”

IEM Katowice 2021 matches take place from 16 to 28 February. 24 teams compete for a prize pool of one million dollars.
