Outsiders won the Major, much to everyone's surprise! Several people have come a long way in several years, the last time Jame and Qikert played in the finals of a Major in 2019. And Fame and N0rb3r7 came quite recently, but they greatly strengthened the team. Daniil Savkin remembered the Outsiders' path to victory!
Is device going to Astralis after the Major: interview with FL1T

IEM Rio Major 2022 is finally over. Now you can exhale, return to normal sleep mode and re-read the best texts of the last 2 weeks. We wrote a lot about the Outsiders, but we forgot about the mood of the Russian team before the Brazilian challenge. Evgeny FL1T Lebedev shared his expectations for Rio Major and talked about his impressions of the ESL Challenger Rotterdam 2022 final. Cyber-sport.io authors caught the key comments of the Russian player.

 

What happened to G2 Esports, in your opinion? What is their problem?

Actually, G2 played exceptionally well. Maybe it was an emotional leap. There may have been too much desire to win, which burned out. G2 showed itself well at the ESL Pro League and was quite confident in the group

 

G2 Esports lost to GamerLegion in the fourth round of the European RMR tournament and failed to qualify IEM Rio Major 2022 in CS:GO. At the qualifying tournament, the Rasmus HooXi Nielsen team beat only ECSTATIC and lost to Cloud9, 1win, and GamerLegion. The victory over the Samurai made it possible to equalize their statistics and get the last chance to qualify for the Major. The meeting ended with a score of 1:2 (16:3 on Vertigo, 4:16 on Mirage, and 12:16 on Inferno).

And if the team does not reach the playoffs of the Major, will it be a failure?

Honestly, I don't know. That is a sport. Everything can be found here. I can't say immediately, and everything will depend on our game. If you show a decent game, but they give you NaVi, FaZe, and someone else, then this cannot be called a failure. Something in particular was emphasized. You failed at IEM Cologne, but you showed good results in all tournaments after that

 

The Outsiders (Virtus.Pro) lost to Furia in the final match at IEM Cologne. Furia won 2-0: 16:13 on Inferno, 16:8 on Inferno. Outsiders (Virtus.Pro) left the tournament, losing all matches. Furia advanced to the next round of the lower bracket.


What have you changed in your preparation compared to that tournament?

We have revised some of our approaches and started to train more. At that time, we had yet to play many matches together. These were some of the first tournaments for fame and n0rb3r7. n0rb3r7 already had LAN tournaments, while fame had no LAN at all. So we got the experience we needed. I hope that he will help us show ourselves well at this Major.


What do you think about the situation with k0nfig? He's been seen in a fight accident twice lately. How often do you see such situations around?

Actually, I have yet to learn about such brawls, because if we go somewhere after the tournament, it's only with the team. Therefore, I am not aware. That is an extraordinary thing that should not be allowed. That is out of the norm. The person represents an organization that has won four majors. That is unacceptable. And the player must understand this himself


On September 18, an incident occurred in Malta involving former Astralis player k0nfig. The team went to one of the districts of Malta, Paceville. The players visited several bars and went to a club, however, k0nfig decided to eat first and fell behind the group. Wieneke came to the entrance to the club half an hour later and turned to the institution's employee with a request to let him inside to his friends.

As the Dane noted, he not only refused but also insulted him, calling him a "loser in tattoos" and demanding €5,000 for a table. K0nfig started arguing with him and suddenly got spit on and kicked in the face. After that, the e-sportsman went down the stairs, pulling his leg, and the manager disappeared into the club.

 

Will the device return to Astralis? And what do you think, if this happens, he will significantly help the team after such a long pause?

There's a good chance device will come back. He will play in Astralis after the Major and maybe even earlier. As for whether he can help the team, I can't say for sure. He has tremendous experience, won four majors, and will be able to help in some way, but you need to look deeper. The details of whether he played CS during his hiatus need to be know

 

All forums are discussing the return of device to Astralis. Device is very familiar with Astralis, where from 2016 to 2021, he was the leader of a team that won many major tournaments and held the lead in the world rankings for a long time. In particular, the Dane became a four-time winner of the majors. The return of the device will be part of the Astralis roster overhaul that was announced shortly after the failure at the RMR tournament. Currently, the only tournament on the team's calendar is Elisa Masters Espoo 2022, scheduled for November 16-20.
