G2 m0NESY says he is sorry for smoke usage, clarifies that admins knew about its side effect Interview

G2 Esports young prodigy Ilya "m0NESY" Osipov apologized to his opponents at PGL Major Antwerp 2022 for using the smoke bug. He admitted this wasn't a fair move and specified that admins were provided with a full demonstration of the glitch. Osipov explained these things in a short interview with a Russian YouTuber.

I want to say sorry to those I was using the bug against, NAVI and Brazilians. I should've thought before using this bug. I want to clarify that we demonstrated this smoke to admins with another smoke in the window and its side effect. I mean, you could see that this was a bug, looking through the window. The admins allowed this, but of course, I should've thought myself, and do not use such a thing, especially at the Major. I'm sorry.

Ilya also commented on their loss to FURIA and departure from the tournament. He thinks his team chose the wrong approach to Brazilians because G2 shouldn't play on their terms.

Everything was okay. It's just that you can't play aggressively against FURIA. This is their style, and answering it with your own aggression is meh. That's why we've shat the bed. Sorry.

G2 didn't make it through the Legends Stage in Antwerp and finished with a score of 2-3. The team lost to NAVI and Heroic in two bo1s and then surprisingly lost to FURIA in the deciding face-off.

M0NESY's smoke caused a controversy. Not only was it creating a one-way advantage but also cancelling the enemy's smoke in the window on Mirage. Later, YouTubers were able to recreate this experience on other maps. After two days in Legends Stage, participants agreed not to use the bug, and later that day, Valve patched it out.
