- Yegor took me to the wonderful place,
- where the Dnepropetrovsk embankment could be seen.
- The place and view are fantastic,
- but okroshka was bad for Yegor, am I right?
- Oh, yes.
- Ugh, how disgusting!
- So, weíre back to Yegor and his stories. Yegor!
- Yup.
- Youíve changed your cloths, youíre a pretty boy
- and Iíd like to ask you about DOTA,
- youíre playing it as much as CS.
- Something like that.
- Have you been thinking
- about going for it after CS?
- Yes, definitely, Iíve been thinking a lot about it.
- And when I played with pro gamers recently
- and some of them were joking like,
- ìyouíre playing well,
- so maybe you should think of changes?î
- and I really was thinking about that,
- ëcause I know Iím a good player
- when I have a mood for it.
- But to play on the Top level,
- I have to spend much time for practicing,
- to watch replays and games for 2 months.
- Before playing DOTA I watched
- broadcasts and streams, so I maintained my reputation.
- I knew the last trends of DOTA,
- knew some counters,
- I knew where I can make a pro ward, etc.
- But I wasnít going to do it really,
- as Iím CS player, not DOTAís one.
- Itís like my occupation.
- And I think that if I decide it for myself,
- it will be possible.
- What can effect your decision?
- Iíll play DOTA in any case,
- even when I gave a job,
- Iíll do it in the evening with a glass of beer,
- friends in Skype or go to the pub maybe.
- It will stay with me in any case.
- The same with CS as well.
- What can influence on my decision?
- Well it can be the facts that the moment will come
- and Iíll suddenly understand that itís time to finish with this stuff,
- I have no prospective anymore etc.
- Iíll think about that twice.
- Certainly, before that Iíll find a good job
- and if I get it, its likely that I will leave eSports.
- But if I have any interesting variants with DOTA
- and not so good variants with job
- than Iíll make my decision on the fact.
- In theory I can do that,
- I always have willingness to play DOTA,
- so weíll see later.
- What about your wishes for many guys playing CS now,
- maybe they arenít as professional as you are.
- Theyíre very upset, crying, dreaming of the game to be alive,
- but it dies and what should they do?
- To start the new game or carry on studying or working and forget about CS?
- You shouldnít lose your head in any case,
- work and study is always necessary thing.
- Life is life and game is a game.
- But as I already told you,
- CS wonít fade away,
- it will be alive in any case
- and people will play it,
- but there will be no championships anymore.
- And the professional CS can come to the end.
- Thatís why I even donít know which advice to give you.
- ëcause Iíve always been playing the game I liked until now.
- And I reached my level just because I liked what I was doing.
- I was playing it for my pleasure
- and even now Iím practicing for pleasure.
- And even playing on a poor championship
- in the Internet for $300 I play
- with pleasure as well.
- Sometimes it is not fun,
- but usually just like that.
- If you like CS, why give it up?
- But you should understand that
- only few people can reach our level
- or the level of some international teams .
- And you have no sense to strive for it,
- for example, right now.
- If you play this game,
- you should receive the unreal satisfaction of that,
- of communication with your friends and team mates,
- slap somebody if he failed,
- if somebody didnít give you a drop
- you can give him a punch, etc.
- Just to play ot for your own pleasure.
- I wish you not to daydream
- that once youíll become somebody like Neo in 5 years.
- It is unlikely to happen.
- So if you want to play this game and you like it - so just play.
- Ok. So we started talking about your start.
- Tell us how you got to Na`Vi?
- It was early December 2009, on the Arbalet Cup Europe
- in Sweden when I was in HR team.
- There were a few Ukrainian teams,
- I think 2 or 3 and the rest ñ International.
- We lost just like the rest of Ukrainian teams.
- It was fail for Ukraine.
- And just right after the championship Sergey starix
- has a telephone call from Murat Arbalet
- who told him that they had been communicating
- on the championship in Dubai
- and he promised to make a team of the best.
- Sergey told him that he remembered,
- and that time he really had such a chance.
- He was told the conditions,
- he had to take the best players and win the championships.
- Starix was shocked first, caught a star fever,
- and started to feel all-powerful.
- First he told his gamers,
- whom he wanted to see in the team
- and then we came home, weighed the pros and cons
- and gathered a team as it is now. That was my start.
- Did he have any nervous breakdowns?
- Like I canít do that, I donít want it, fuck you all!
- Who had such breakdowns?
- Zeus had it in 2010.
- Why do you think we changed the leader for Starix?
- Because there were a few moments a long before this,
- during the championships, practicing,
- We were playing and Zeus was telling what to do
- and we as usual people had mistakes.
- And every of our mistake could make
- an explosion in his head that time,
- ëcause now heís ok with that.
- After our mistakes he could do like this.
- He isnít skinny, so he can beat the table as strong as he can.
- I was seating on the very brink that time
- and felt that my mouse and keyboard leaped,
- so I understood that something was wrong.
- Well, everything happens,
- he could say that he couldnít continue like that,
- but than he calmed down and after the training was finished
- everybody went to drink.
- And the next day we had to be at the place at 3 pm.
- So after the practice we went to our friends,
- thought for a while, some people advised us something good
- and the next day we gathered together and calmed down,
- understanding that weíre the team and everything happens,
- so we should carry on.
- It happened often but we always tried to find a compromise
- and solved the problems on the fact.
- Have you been in such situations?
- Iíve never told that I wouldnít play.
- I could grow hysterical,
- I cold insult a lot, snarl, tell somebody to get lost,
- but to leave or to exit from the server ñ none of that.
- I could say that Iím tired and itís better to continue the next day.
- So youíre an adequate, good boy.
- A lot of my team mates wonít agree with you
- but maybe youíre right.
- You receive a salary in your team.
- And prize funds.
- Is your salary enough for living
- if there are no championships
- and for how long can you live for it?
- Is the life of PRO gamer can be called luxury?
- Earlier there was no problem with money
- when we had Murat Zhumashevich
- and there were lots of championships like
- Arbalet Cups where they paid us in cash,
- rather then sending us money in a half a year
- after the championship
- We also had monthly salary, so everything was great.
- We had luxury life, well some had it,
- and some saved up their money.
- It was up to you. Even for what we have now
- we can live as we have much bigger salary
- than the average for Ukraine.
- But it depends on your lifestyle.
- For example, if you want everything and at once,
- lobsters and so on, certainly, it wonít be enough for you.
- And if you live at home and go out on weekends for example,
- it will be ok for you.
- And what is your lifestyle?
- How do you spend your money?
- Lobsters and wine for me, please!
- Sometimes it happens.
- I pay for everything! Everybody drinks!
- I had different situations,
- sometimes it was difficult, sometimes ok.
- Have you ever regret about the money
- you spend the previous day?
- Well, how to sayÖ recently I had such a situation.
- I woke up and checked my telephone,
- wallet and then I was shocked.
- It was like that. Even such things happen.
- But I canít tell I ever regret about that.
- In any case, after such situation
- I have always been doing something crazy,
- made an exhibition of myself,
- I could afford everything and chilled out for maximum,
- so how can I regret about that?
- I agree. Youíve got very many fans
- and they arenít only from Ukraine or Russia,
- they are all over the world I think.
- My love to everybody!
- Tell me, how often they disturb you?
- The worst thing for me is a cluster of inadequate fans,
- who can see my friendsí list vkontakte, which canít be hidden,
- my greetings to Pasha Durov,
- they think that if they write them to ask me to add them
- to everyone from my 600 friends.
- And my friends and mates write me,
- that unknown people write them
- to ask me for adding.
- So what can I tell my friends?
- From one side it is my fault, but what can I do?
- This is the main thing to irritate me.
- And the rest, for example when we go to the tournament,
- on TechLabs in Moscow and Minsk
- all those people who came to us and asked for autograph
- and photos aroused no bad feelings at all.
- I think everyone who saw me there will agree with this statement.
- I made photos with my fans
- as much as I have time and energy
- for it and even joke with them.
- People can make such a crowd,
- that there is almost no free space around me.
- But in general my attitude is good towards that.
- Maybe it happens because they are lacking communication with you?
- Maybe they wanna ask you something?
- Once I made an experiment and maybe Iíll repeat it again.
- Once we were in China and everyone was sleeping already
- and I was sitting in lobby drinking my beer and had nothing to do.
- In Ukraine it was already 5 pm and there ñ 11 pm.
- And I decided to open access for all people
- who want to write me a message.
- I communicated with normal, adequate people,
- who asked normal questions which were pleasant to reply.
- But there were another list of questions,
- for example, 5 in a row with a request for adding them to me friends.
- But I opened my messages not to add you to my friends,
- but to answer your questions for example.
- Maybe you should announce the conditions then?
- No, no announcing at all!
- Because everybody will write at the same time.
- As for example on your forum people could ask me questions
- and I was asked to log in
- and answer the questions I liked.
- So I logged in and saw 800 pages with questions
- which were inconvenient to leaf over.
- And it was written like that,î Hi! Hi!, Hi!î
- well, something interesting to answer and then the same again.
- I scrolled 6 pages and everywhere was the same!
- The question, which answers one can learn from any interview!
- And I gave up this stuff. And if I do the same in vkontakte,
- I just press the button where everyone can send me messages
- and itís just like that! I can do it spontaneous.
- So you need peace.
- Do people recognize you on the streets?
- Yes, it happened. Though I understand that most people
- who recognize me are shy to come to me
- or they just donít want to do that.
- They just notice me passing by and go ahead.
- And there are such people who run to me
- and ask for my autograph.
- In such cases I never refuse, always give them autographs
- make photos with them.
- But once 2 funny cases happened to me.
- In Dnepropetrovsk we have 2 cool establishments
- and one of them is Portofino, a pretty expensive restaurant
- and I came there even in a daytime weíve just won the DreamHack,
- or had the 2nd place there, I donít remember exactly,
- so we arrived from one championship.
- And I wanted to have some meal or had a meeting there,
- donít remember exactly,
- I was waiting for the waiter and saw that he served the next table,
he turned to me and recognized me and telling that he saw
- my games on the weekend and that weíre
- cool and wished me good luck.
- I was highly pleased to hear that from him.
- And the next situation was when I came with a girlfriend
- to Beer House, a nice place with a good cuisine;
- it is also in the center.
- The waiter took our order, left us and came in 5 minutes
- with an empty worksheet for his orders
- and a pen and gave that to me.
- I thought first that was my bill,
- but he asked me to leave him my autograph.
- Nastya, who sitting opposite to me,
didnít understand what happened.
- So such things happen.
- Yeah, it is pleasant things.
- Yes, they are.
- I saw the photo where you were on the photo,
- made by Chinese girl and you were sitting to her.
- So girls are also mad about you?
- They are mad about the European appearance in general,
- so if they see somebody like that they are very happy.
- To tell the truth, the most of them were mad about Edward.
- They are crazy about beards,
- as no Chinese guy has it.
- And they consider the beard to be the sexiest thing in the world.
- So when they see him they are ready for everything.
- The beard talks.
- And what about our girls.
- I saw photos from Minsk with girls,
- were they crazy about you?
- No, they just came to us and for a few words.
- Put their panties in your pockets
- with telephone numbers and asked you to call?
- They even didnít ask for the autograph on their boobs!
- Oh, no! Girls, you should improve!
- Dating in the cinema, hand in hand, flowers, etc
- I can tell you which club is good and which is bad!
- I can tell you which club is good and which is bad!
