Nightfall: "There are no good offlaners either in CIS or the rest of the world" Interview2023-01-30 15:26:00
BetBoom's offlaner Egor "Nightfall" Grigorenko revealed he could play a carry role on the lineup. They considered it during the assembling, but that would leave them without a proper position 3 player. Nightfall thinks that there aren't many of those in the world, but it's not clear if he meant the overall scene, or the free agents and players that they could've possibly got to play with them.
Yeah, I had these thoughts. Of course, we cycled through different options, including the one where I would carry. But, to be honest, when we were building the roster, I more or less realized that we would do better with me as position 3.
Because there are no good offlaners either in EEU or the rest of the world. But I can be one of them, so to speak. It's easier to get a tier-1 carry rather than searching for a position 3 player from scratch. At the assembling phase, it became clear that I must be the offlaner to make out team stronger. And it's not like I was against that, since we wanted to play the same lane with Save-.
BetBoom defeated Team Spirit in the final clash of DPC EEU 2023 Tour 1 and secured first place in the chart with a flawless 7-0 win record. TOROTOTOKYO thinks it was an important win for Save- and Nightfall, as the rivalry against the home team has lasted since 2021.
