kassad: "The Gambit roster did not play worse, but just got tired by the end of 2021"

Former EXTREMUM coach Aleksandar "kassad" Trifunovic, on the air of the English-language lighting studio IEM Winter 2021, commented on the current form of Gambit, which ended the tournament at the quarter-final stage. According to the expert, this result, as well as some other unsuccessful performances of the CIS team at the end of the current year, are associated not with the deterioration of its game, but with fatigue.

"I don’t think that compared to the beginning of the season, this team is now doing anything differently in terms of individual or collective play. The Gambit roster did not play worse, but was simply tired by the end of 2021. This is the only reason for not the most successful performances. They still look like a strong team that just needs a break. Keep in mind that, with the exception of Hobbit, these are still very young guys with no significant experience. I think next year they will be able to show even cooler CS. <...> For me, this is still the top 3 roster of the world."

Recall that in the quarterfinals of IEM Winter 2021, Gambit lost to Vitality. This year Vladislav "nafany" Gorshkov's team will perform at another tournament, which will be BLAST Premier Global Final 2021.
