TORONTOTOKYO: "All chat is not for everyone. It's for high-IQ players. It's like an art"

BetBoom Team support Aleksandr "TORONTOTOKYO" Khertek discussed trash talk in Dota 2. He joked that only players with "high IQ" can do it. The player spoke about this and ESL One Birmingham's grand final in an interview at PGL Wallachia S1.

I think all chat is not for everyone. It is for high-IQ players. Every time I all-chatted in the past, it was at the right time, the right moment, and the right sentence. It's like an art.

On ESL One Birmingham 2024 grand final

When you reach grand finals, you usually meet the strongest team of the tournament. When you get there, you need everyone to show their best. Everyone should play good. I hope this experience will help me and my teammates get better and perform better in the next final.

For me, it's not stress. Maybe some people in my team were stressed. But I don't really feel it myself, because I played in so many finals. For me, it's like a usual day. But I can play better. And I'm making conclusions after any game, not even finals. When I lose, I watch what I could do better, and next time I will do better. Maybe next time, I'll have more impact.

TORONTOTOKYO is famous for the bold move at The International 2021. Facing two-time champions from OG, he threw "ez game" in all chat. Some thought Aleksandr's move was disrespectful. At the time, Team Spirit was a dark horse lineup playing its first LAN.
