About replacing Ghostik
“We already had minor disagreements during the major: someone prefers to play more carefully, someone wants, on the contrary, to play with a bit of risk and try new things.
Of course, on the one hand we took the risk, there was little point in delaying the time until the replacements after the minor. If all four have lost faith in the strength and capabilities of the fifth now, it is better to make the replacement as quickly as possible and move on with the new wave. ”
About training with Nongrata
“The team is almost always at the bootcamp. This time we are not doing any special training, regime, and so on. We play praques, we analyze games, everything is in the usual mode for us.
It so happened that Lesha has enough time, and he can be with us at the base. Because the replacement on the training schedule did not actually affect, we lost only about three days. On December 30th we will go home and gather again on the second of January. ”
On December 24, Team Spirit management announced that Ghostik had left the Dota 2 roster, and Nongrata would play in the lead instead. According to the manager, the players disagreed on the approach to training.
WePlay! Bukovel Minor 2023 will be held from January 9 to 12 in Bukovel. The prize pool of the tournament will be $ 300 thousand and 660 rating points DPC.
