Degster on podcast

Russia justreadtheinstruction 
Degster made a guest appearance on the DatoKadze Podcast "Avtoritet of a thought" where they spoke about his childhood, his way to cyber sport and a lot of other stuff. youtube.com/watch?v=xngzJzeovs8 Most of the interview is absolute cringe. Abdul is bragging about other people say to him he is smart and talented. He looks proud of getting good marks in low tier college (high school here) where he was absent for months, said he is smarter than his generation etc, etc. I saw he's got a huge ego once again. And overall this interview is hard to watch. On the other hand, Abdul is young and has potential to grow as a person so I am quite optimistic yet. He is very open and sociable. I tried to skip the cringe and translated CS:GO related talks which might be interesting for mens)) 00:06:14 — About slaps Degster: The guy who sat next to me, flameZ, he was hurt and I said to him: look, I slap your hand, the blood inflows to it and you crush the opponents. And flameZ was like LET'S GO. And we played first match he opened with a long strafe made a headshot, turned to me and said YEAH, did you see how I kill him? 01:02:00 — Dream CIS team Degster: If we are considering russian speaking environment so electronic, perfecto, me, b1t and captain...who do I put on this role...interesting...actually I would make Boombl4 IGL. Cameraman: You just picked NaVi roster and removed sdy and s1mple, haha. Degster: I would actually play with these guys. 01:02:52 — Boombl4 David: There is opinion about Boombl4 as IGL, I discussed with my friends. We are very incompetent to judge we are just viewers. We concluded he is good but not big part of NaVi' success and we seem another IGL could replace him. Once again we are just noobs. Could you share your thoughts about it as a pro? Degster: I can't judge as well and have no answer. I think only his teammates can answer. As we could see they did well on recent BLAST. I can't say they were good as they were on PGL Stockholm Major. They weren't favourites on BLAST but when they beat us it became obvious for me they are going to win this event. I think Boombl4 is very smart player, he worked hard when he joined NaVi because he had much lesser experience and confidence as IGL. But taking into account s1mple's words that he felt restricted in some game aspects under Boombl4's IGLing I assume Boombl4 can't do some things or can't control. I experienced it. David: I might be wrong but Zonic told that NaVi now has more flexible play style. (01:02:50 — Avtoritets)Degster: It seems yes, this is a matter of game sense and decision making. For example, when I came to OG, they said I have all freedom and they will adapt. This is what I was looking for! I have ambitions, desire and ideas. The main point is ideas! Earlier I was told to watch demos and copy, now I have my own ideas. And I had it back then but I was told what to do, I had an authority whom I should listen to. (Disclaimer: I am too lazy to translate the word "Avtoritet" in every english meaning depending on context. I will use one of the meanings — Authority. In russian language Authority can not be about power but about importance to you personally. If someone say he is an authority for me, it means that an authority's opinion matters to him. An authority can be publicly acknowledged but for you personally he/she or it isn't the one. Possible meanings: credibility, authority, public image, prestige. Can be object and subject. I changed my mind I will use "Avtoritet".) Degster: I had a few avtoritets in my life. You are from Caucasus as well and you know we are always told to listen to seniors. I have never done it. ~~~long personal story~~~ Cameraman: We got your point, what about to listen your teammates? Isn't this bad to listen to them? Degster: The most important moment in CSGO for me was when I started to think about deeper things of game and personality overall. Yes you are teammates you should listen each other but the key is "each other". When I came to Team Spirit my personal opinion didn't matter at all. This is a fact from my point of view. Someone could disagree but from my point of view the things were as that. And at some point I told to myself the most important thing is to listen myself. Yes I was young and inexperienced but I have talent I have diligence. No one could call better tryharder than me, no one worked more than me I am sure in it 100%. For example, I think no one could play CSGO 48 hours without rest and enjoy the game but I could. And from all of this I remember moments in Team Spirit: someone asked me to help and I felt it is wrong but I went and did and we lost the round. I could say no man I will stay where I am and it seems I am an egoist who doesn't help the team and sometimes it is. However I started play like this several months ago and now I feel it is harder for opponents to play against me and I fuck them. So I had a question to my teammates don't they want to listen to me as I am their teammate too. I have talent and I was taken to the team for a reason. David: Do you want to be an IGL? Degster: No, I was asked and offered but I refused because it is hard to be both awper and IGL. David: There is an opinion that IGL responsibilities can be shared among players. Degster: Yes and this is why I chose NaVi players because they don't need to be lead much they must understand a lot of in-game things. I speak to electronic and think he is the best rifler in Russia and he is very smart so I can't imagine that he needs to be called where to go and what to do in-game. He must understand it he is paid for it. David: Is there players who needs this amount of help? Degster: Of course, for example when s1ren joined Team Spirit I told him some calls to do because he shoots good but has a little experience and he followed my calls without a question this is really cool thing about s1ren. So I made a call to him he went without any hesitation, killed three and I was happy for him and I suppose he was happy that I suggested him what is good for him. 01:20:05 — Met Boombl4 at LAN tournament in Moscow when he was 15 y.o. Degster: We lost to Winstrike with Boombl4 in semis and I came to him and started to ask all questions I had about the game. And I remember when I was in ESPADA I watched NaVi interview with Boombl4 and question was about ESPADA as first opponent on RMR Boombl4 said he doesn't know the team but know degster he is cool guy very curious and I was pleased he remembered this. We actually are in good terms. 01:28:20 — About leaving Team Spirit Degster: There are a lot of persons who commented it and the most interesting thing is they didn't ask my opinion didn't know my feelings but it is experience for me and understanding of whom I spoke before and how they behave when professional relationships is over. My decision was based on variety of reasons. Yes I didn't want to live in Serbia 9 months year and someone told why won't you live one year this way and then the situation could get better to return to normal life. I thought about it and I don't want it I don't believe it will get better and I am sure I wouldn't feel better there than in Moscow for example because there were a lot of things about our game inside the team which were discussed. I told them what I want I asked what I was promised to regarding to changing my play style. And some of these things were unacceptable there. When I came to OG I saw what I looked for. I have a talk with Team Spirit and they told me Abdul you offered good things but not all of our roster are that experienced at the moment to adapt. I think that what I suggested is the CS:GO level that should be and I think skilled player can adapt it. I don't want to say that players of Team Spirit are not skilled. But there was a situation I was told initially I should wait until new players get feel comfortable and then I was told why we should change when we are winning. I am not interesting in all of this I want to win but win not because of I can't do something I want game has creativeness OG's game had it and we made it to semis and I am happy. Yes I wanted to return to Moscow because I wasn't ready to move at that moment but the thing was I should prepare to online tournament and then prepare to LAN from Serbia I said I need more time for this and they told we gave you enough time already the rest of the team here and went to office every day and you the one who breaks the process. I agree that I break but I told about my needs and they told that my needs will hinder team work. So they suggested me to follow team system or leave and I decided to leave. And I think it is mature decision that I didn't force the team to adjust me. Moreover I told them I need more time but even after this I was not sure I will be ready to live there. (01:38:28)Cameraman: You speak that you know how is better because you feel that way. What if you are wrong? Degster: Excellent. I will get better. Cameraman: Question from donation: you speak "there is only NaVi in CIS", "I want full freedom in game", "I don't want someone to tell me what to do", etc. Maybe you raised the bar for teams too high? Degster: It is only your opinion. I have nothing to add. 02:07:21 — Playing on LAN David: You don't play in soundproofed zones and use headsets. Do you hear something from outside? Degster: Yes, you hear, your table is vibrating, your mouse is vibrating. You should adapt your aiming when you sit down there. David: When the audience go like "UUUUUUUUUUUUUH" in crucial moments do you hear? Degster: Yes. It often occurs when someone's approaching from the back. David: This is not fair. Degster: Yeah, I remember FaZe killed s1ren because of it. S1ren was sneaking up from behind on broky and the crowd went crazy and broky turned around and killed s1ren. S1ren got tilted as fuck. 02:10:41 — About ideas in CSGO Degster: I like how it was in OG I was calling them and they went and did. And if they made a mistake and lost I am not that kind of person who leave it just like that. I need to know the opponent outplayed my idea. Generally I was thinking about it in more wide perspective like an year ago and came to conclusion that I am paid for that my ideas are better than others. There were another interesting things last 30 minutes but I got tired.

Thanks for the work you put in translating it mate! From the looks of it Degster seems to be wayy overconfident and egoistic but in his current form where he is performing out of his mind, he can get away being a bragger and put money where his mouth is. Think he should consider being an IGL if he doesn't want to follow orders that much, every team has a system on top level that one must adapt to.

2022-06-29 10:55
Ngl he seems extremely self centered in this interview.Ik this mindset can be good at times, but he most prob. will be humbled if this goes on for too long.

Sounds like Avtoritet when used as a noun meaning a person, is like a mentor.

Not at all bro, idk how to explain because of poor english skills Look at russian section en.wiktionary.org/wiki/%D0%B0%D0%B2%D1%8.. Look at first paragraph quora.com/What-does-the-avtoritet-of-a-R.. "Basically, someone whose word is respected in certain area." It can be not only person for example: The statement of World Health Organization is avtoritet for me.
