Collapse after beating Xtreme in grand final: "They constantly fight back and don't give up, they're some kind of monsters" Interview

Team Spirit offlaner Magomed "Collapse" Khalilov gave an interview after winning Dota 2 PGL Wallachia Season 1. He noted the resilience of Xtreme Gaming, which made the grand final so close. On the Russian broadcast, Collapse confessed he felt exhausted after the bo5 series.

I am very happy, but at the same time very tired. Eight maps since 8:00 AM, of course... Three years ago, at the same time in Bucharest, I was full of energy, but now I... I really want to sleep. <...>

In the end, we got Roshan, and Xtreme began to follow us. Larl said he wouldn't buy back, so we decided to wait for his resurrection. It so happened that Yatoro found Enchantress, and then Faceless Void joined the fight, set the Chrono, and took away the Aegis. I saw that I could help and bought back. I don't remember what the calls were. Yatoro simply said that he would [destroy] them.
In the end, we killed three, pushed the throne and tried to save the creep wave so that there would be no backdoor. As a result, Pangolier went to stop them, and we caught him and then Puck too. Then, we didn't see any creeps, and Xtreme typed "GG." Only after that, we felt relief. If this game took 30 seconds more, I would have died, I swear. <...>

I played against Xtreme, thinking, "How long can you last? Why don't you give up?" I kept thinking that the opponents must make a mistake, but this did not happen. They basically do not make mistakes — only if we outplay them ourselves. They constantly run and fight back, they don't give up, they're some kind of monsters. This final was very difficult, almost the most difficult final of my entire career.

Puppey: "Team Spirit always has problems when the prize is not $30 million"

Team Spirit beat Xtreme Gaming with a score of 3:2. The same day earlier, they knocked out Falcons, playing full bo3. Miroslav "Mira" Kolpakov admitted he was already exhausted before the grand final. This is Spirit's first trophy after winning The International 2023.
