Dyrachyo: "Nightfall will play with zero deaths and lose a tournament. I don't want to be that kind of a 'best' carry" Interview2023-05-24 03:47:00
Gaimin Gladiators' Anton "dyrachyo" Shkredov explained why he doesn't consider carry stats to be an important factor. In an interview with Cyber.Sports.ru, he claimed that numbers don't matter as long as your team isn't winning and compared himself with Egor "Nightfall" Grigorenko.
People usually put you below Nightfall or Yatoro...
...Who were knocked out in the early stages [in Berlin]. I don't know, maybe it's some kind of a bias. I provide the team with many good things, as a person too. Yes, Nightfall will play with zero deaths, but he will lose a tournament. Okay. I don't want to be that kind of a "best" carry. I'll be the worst one, but I will win and continue doing so for some time. It doesn't matter how much better you are. The whole team wins and loses together. In my opinion, all these takes about most performing players are deceptive. But I can understand people who discuss that, as they do not know what's going on inside a team.
On the team's preparation and routine
Yeah, we don't have a lot of scrims. We had one before the official match, not against the strongest team, just to warm up. I look at our schedule and see only three scrims versus Liquid. Although I am sure we will play more against them, in general, there's nothing else until the end of the DPC season besides those games with TL. <...>
For example, now, Ace and Quinn are chatting on Discord. I don't know what they are about. Way often, we simply have conversations there. Ace, Seleri, and tOfu often play together in pubs. I can jump in, discuss some tricks, ask which heroes I should practice now, and so on.
Team Liquid ended Gaimin Gladiators' win streak of 16 matches in a row. Dyrachyo and his team have a 2-1 match record in the Summer Tour of DPC WEU 2023. Previously, both teams already qualified for The International 2023.
