dupreeh: "I think our semi-final against Liquid is going to be the best match of the Major"

We talked to Peter "dupreeh" Rasmussen after Astralis's close quarter-final series against FaZe to get his thoughts on the match and their upcoming rematch versus Liquid.

Astralis secured the series 2-0, but it wasn't all smooth sailing for the Danish squad, as they closed out Mirage 16-14 despite a good start into the opening map and had to come back from a 3-10 deficit on the Terrorist side of Inferno.

Astralis will take on Liquid next

We talked to dupreeh about the two close maps and their approach to preparation against FaZe, who changed leaders mid-tournament. He also discussed Astralis' loss to Liquid in the previous stage and how that will affect the upcoming rematch in the semi-finals.

Considering FaZe's situation regarding NiKo calling, did you approach the matchup any differently than you would have with FaZe normally?

No, not really. For some reason, we knew there was probably something going on in FaZe since they wanted to change a caller in the middle of the Major. Then, obviously, there is something going on between the members of the team.

But we just took it as any other match, any other team. We knew that NiKo probably wanted to call a little bit slower like he used to do in mousesports, but we knew they were still going to use the same playbook, they would have the same set strats and all that stuff. I don't know who was calling in our match, but it didn't really matter to us who was, we just played our own game.

Did you notice any of that in the match itself?

I just felt like some of the defaults they ran were going a little bit slower, but they were playing like old FaZe, in my opinion, the same type of style, going aggressive and playing off individuals, and obviously having some good set strats here and there and playing off momentum which they're so good at. We didn't really feel anything different.

Tell me about Mirage and why it got so close, as you were up 12-6 and almost dropped the ball...

We won the pistol round and we wanted to do a really fast execute on A and... we just got killed, basically. We ran the execute 3v5 and we weren't really having the momentum in that situation. From there on, we just lost a lot of unfortunate rounds and I felt like we started to play a little bit scared at some point, when we did executes, people maybe hesitated a little bit too much.

Even when we were in a favorable situation, we just allowed them to have too much space instead of playing off intuition and closing down the rotations and stuff. I think that was probably the main reason why, we hesitated a little bit too much and then they basically had some good reads.

dupreeh was on fire on Mirage

What was the call for the last round, where you ran up connector and got those two openings?

Mainly, we had a lot of intel on how they play and we knew that if we that specific move, we had a good situation that NiKo would probably be copying the smoke in connector. What we did was just something we've been trying to work on and it just worked out, I got up there and I got him.

I actually started thinking I could potentially just let NiKo live and go deeper into the site and get more kills, but, in that situation, I was just thinking 'I need to get this kill, I can't mess up here' and Xyp9x gave the callout that they were playing two guys close on slope, so I just knew when I killed that guy, I had to go peek deep into slope, as well.

I got those two kills and it just turned out to be a really frustrating and a confusing round because rain didn't die in slope and everyone was like 'ahh, he has to die!', oh sh*t, everything just started messing up. We won in the end and that was a huge relief, we didn't want to go into overtime again.

You got off to a bad start on Inferno T side and couldn't seem to get into it, what was that down to?

For me, personally, I had a really good game on Mirage and I started out pretty slow on the T side on Inferno. I wouldn't say there was a specific reason to being slow, I think we weren't as prepared to play against FaZe because we hadn't seen that much intel on how they played with olof because we've been seeing them play with cromen and Xizt, but not with olof.

We got quite surprised that we saw that I think NiKo is now playing on A, so that changed up something, and the way they played pit, rain was playing super passive down there and did a really good job. But, overall, I just think we got off to a really bad start because we didn't get the kills, we didn't get the entry frags and then when we actually executed, we were hesitant and didn't get the entries as we wanted to. From there on, we just grinded out as many rounds as possible, we didn't really get any momentum or break their economy at any point, so... it was a hard match on the T side, definitely.

Did the scoreline push you into those forcebuys, especially at 10-3?

Yeah, we were just thinking that we weren't going to get that good of a buy, anyway, so we could either forcebuy and have a few AKs and a few grenades. We had a really good idea of what to do in those rounds, though, because we knew what to do based on what we had seen from them so far, and that's the reason why we decided to forcebuy. We won some clutch rounds, which was really important, so we got a 5-10 half, which was obviously really important.

FaZe got off to a great start on Inferno, but it wasn't enough to stop Astralis

Once you've almost completed the comeback and you were up around 12-10, did you start getting impatient? There were some chaotic rounds and overpeeks in advantages...

A little bit, maybe we wanted to end the match faster than we actually were supposed to. We got killed in middle quite a few times, either by Deagles or an AK... I think one of the reasons was that we wanted to use our utility down deep middle because we had a really good approach with taking banana, so we knew they were going to be waiting on slope and we could deep grenade them down there.

But, overall, I think we just wanted to end the game a little bit too fast. Every time we just waited out the rounds, played it slow and played off each other, we just won the round, so I think it was a mixture of getting too hyped, we wanted to win a little bit too much, and we just started doing some stupid things. But we're going to take that into consideration for the next game. We had a discussion that we don't want to play scared because if you play scared against FaZe, you're going to lose, so we wanted to show that we had... balls (laughs).

Given that you've lost to Liquid in the group stage, does that add any more pressure on you for the upcoming matchup given that your record against them has been broken?

Not really. I had the same question when we did press earlier at this tournament and a person asked me if that, as you mentioned, the mental aspect had changed, the fact that they've now actually beaten us. I think it actually plays into our advantage because they were up so much and we made the comeback. I think they remember the fact that they almost lost more than that they beat us.

And best-of-ones versus best-of-threes is so much different, I think we have a really strong map pool going against them, so I'm just looking very much forward to playing them. As always, we have very close matchups against Liquid and we have played them so many times by now, so it's really about mindgaming, as well, it's a really tough one. I think it's going to be the best match of the Major no matter what. Even though the final is going to be whoever, I think the semi-final is going to be the best.

I dont understand why you guys are hyped so much about navi vs mibr. All the 3 teams in quarter final got easiest opponents and only astralis had to face a tier 1 team ( faze not in form still tier 1).all others excluding liquid are not even near to astralis performance wise, just think about it .

If Na'Vi can't in 2v5 (That's 100% correct) kill worst Liquid player then how Na'Vi is better than Liquid which has NAF-FLY nitr0 Twistzz and ELiGE when Na'Vi has s1mple and electronic (and flamie on major) 2 Gods

It's cocky because he is essentially dismissing mibr and navi. Everyone knows astralis is the team to beat, so if he says it's gonna be the best match (that it will be close) that means he sees liquid as the team to beat, and the other potential match-up will be easier. There isn't any reason for him to be that confident about it though, they're neck and neck with Na'Vi for that top spot all year. Barely scraped out a win against them on inferno where navi failed on a multitude of rounds. Not to mention last time they played a bo3 at cologne they got rekt
2018-09-22 03:15
it’s stating facts because in dupreeh’s opinion, he respects liquid more, and places them higher than the 2 teams on the other side.
2018-09-22 03:19
Except astralis looks beatable af, considering they lost to liquid and barely scraped by Na'Vi. So as you say in his mind he undervalues a team that looks just as strong as them (I agree that mibr are bots) which makes him cocky.
2018-09-22 04:54
“Barely scraped by Na’Vi“ xD What about that 16-0 against MiBr?
2018-09-22 08:41
I wrote down mibr are bots right there
2018-09-22 18:06
I too would dismiss mibr if my team recently beat them 16-0

How is it cocky? They beat MIBR 16-0 in the groups + MIBR is a pretty weak team in general. NaVi shouldn't be a big problem in BO3 aswell, if either electronic or s1mple don't play up to their best NaVi won't stand a chance. Either way the winner of Astralis vs Liquid will win the Major.
2018-09-22 14:33
“...they're neck and neck with Na'Vi for that top spot all year” Trolling????
2018-09-22 15:29
Navi hasnt finished lower than top3 all year except stockholm. Astralis sucked dick jan-april, played amazing may-july, and showed chinks since. Yeah id say neck and neck.
2018-09-22 19:38
Well - results, ranking points and stats from the last 6 months tell a different story. Anyway - gonna be an awesome game tomorrow..!
2018-09-23 00:05
I'm not complaining that's for sure, the cologne final was great. The winner of this tournament puts a stamp on the best team of the year imo. High stakes for this final!
2018-09-23 02:02
it is they r saying this will be the final of the major who wins here wins major how is that not cocky?
2018-09-22 10:16
except they are the 2 best teams at the tournament so why the fuck not everyone knows it
2018-09-22 18:41

Obviously it will be the only 2 good teams in the event duke it out in the semi's. Who ever wins Astralis vs Liquid will win the major 100%, Na'vi and MiBR look so shit.
2018-09-22 03:46
Mibr yes, navi, not.
2018-09-22 13:57
They managed to drag a game to full 30 rounds with tons of mistakes and that proves they are shit? Omegalul go ebay buy some brain.

No it means that Astralis can beat them even when they play like shit, Na'vi actually played really fucking good in that best of 1, Astralis was on drugs that game or smth and still won. Don't get me wrong Na'vi are good they can beat Astralis but not at this major, it's in the bag already, there will be no choke, Astralis are getting their 2nd major.
2018-09-23 03:42
I think you didnt watch that game, cause it was atrocious from navi with tons of low elo mistakes.
2018-09-23 04:14

Myanmar AstralisGoat 
Which is expected since they're a shit team and only rely on individual performance, what wasn't expected was Astralis to be making that many mistakes so no I think you didn't watch the game.

They are a shit team though you have to admit that, they have no team work, shit strats, no synergy, just rely on s1mple and electronic only and nothing else. Also this has nothing to do with fanboyism, Astralis are clearly the best TEAM in the world, they play like a team that's the difference, Na'vi do not.
2018-09-23 13:38
Shit team who constantly makes to playoffs in tournaments, with a lot of finals or atleast semifinals. Yes astralis are best atm, but youre just retarded to say that navi is trash. No point in arguing with a moron. Cya.

You are so stupid I'm talking about team play, Na'vi have s1mple and electronic who are hard carries on this team that doesn't make them a good team are you really this dumb or just brain dead? Comparing a team like Astralis who is playing at the highest level of team play vs a team like Na'vi who don't even play like a team is fucking retarded stop it please.

Don't get me wrong...Astralis and Liquid are the best teams of this Major, but they're so boring to watch. I prefer a game w/ S1mple and Fallen doing some crazy plays, even if Mibr lose it... in the end of the day it'll be a fun match up.

This. MIBR and Na'Vi allow individual plays more than the other 2 teams. I think it will be fun seeing how FalleN puts up a fight with s1mple this time. Last time they played fallen was on a terrible moment of form and s1mple was the only awper in the server

Flamie is pretty good tho. Imo they should let flamie to be primary awp.
2018-09-22 14:00
Yes its going to be the best match of the major for you because its a free ride. Overratedquid are gonna choke and lose to you

I aren't think that. Liquid is in fire form rn. Virtually this is the grand final, since Liquid has been very consistent throughout the year reaching the big stage every time.. It's gonna be fun.

2018-09-22 12:14
Choking vs vega and hr,i wouldnt say they are in form. Astralis going to eat them as they usually do. Atleast it wont be like in eleague, where navi somehow lost to lulquit and it was boring af final lulquit vs astralis.
2018-09-22 14:01
0/8 they lost because simple is literally average against liquid
2018-09-22 18:43
Since when simple play in astralis?
2018-09-22 18:45
that doesnt make any sense i dont know how to find the page but you can check separate player ratings when they go against particular teams simple's vs liquid was like 1.04 or something maybe lower

2018-09-22 07:17
You mean like it was in eleague? 16/8 16/8 final or something like that? Everyone were saying that if navi didnt lose to liquit there, it atleast would be interesting final. Now its going to be the same, astralis will trash liquid as they always do.
2018-09-22 14:03
He knows this match up is litereally the final.. gonna be close, hope to see Astralis vs M16BR in the final. Astralis Best team in the world.
2018-09-22 07:24

I think that liquid maybe can win a BO1 to astralis but astralis has a better map pool in BO3 and its all mind games, liquid is now one of best teams in BO1 but in the first match of BO3 hellraisers take one map, so, GL 2 both
2018-09-22 09:25
So because hr won their map pick that's relevant how

Honestly i think this is being cocky because you cannot discard any team on this semi-finals because each have the potential to became this major champions Honestly you guys discard teams like Mibr because they lost 16-0? like wtf you guys who trash talk all time about it are a bunch of morons wanna know why? Because nobody is perfect and anybody can have bad games or performance so are you telling me you trash talkers could have done better? Pathetic you would get destroyed probably wouldnt have any frags at all against a team on such high caliber. Honestly i will always be a Mibr fan because they have potential to be the Best and with a lot of training they might succeed in the future. Honestly i think Astralis will lose to Liquid. And i Believe that Mibr will win this Major. #RespectMibr
