tiburci0: "I want our team to leave everything else aside and just focus on CS"

We talked to André "tiburci0" Rossetto, whose DETONA were unable to make a dent at the ESL Pro League Season 9 Finals with back-to-back losses, to learn a little bit more about this up-and-coming Brazilian roster.

DETONA, who were coming to Montpellier after a ten-day bootcamp in Sweden, where they played the Esportal Global Finals at Inferno Online and finished in 3rd place, were unable to make their mark at the Pro League Finals, going out in last place following losses to Heroic and Cloud9.

tiburci0 believes DETONA's players need to live only for the game in order to take their next step

In the interview, tiburci0 talks about his team, their current state and what they need to keep progressing were they to want to keep growing past their current state, what they learned during their time in Europe, and how they look up to other Brazilian teams that were able to achieve big things outside of their home country.

The ESL Pro League Season 9 Finals is your biggest event to date, you went out after two matches, but how was the experience for the team?

It was amazing. We had a ten day bootcamp in Sweden, where we played the Esportal Global Finals at Inferno Online. We noticed the bootcamp wasn't enough, and our team is much more disorganized than the teams playing here. This is a tier 1 tournament and we were huge underdogs, there's no question about it. We didn't play our A game and I think that was the worst part. We came here knowing it would be really hard, but we didn't play our best. If we did, we could have won a map or two, but with the game we brought, we just didn't have a chance at all. We felt a lot of pressure playing at such a huge tournament, and it was just in the studio and without a crowd.

You had some time to bootcamp before coming here, how helpful was it for a team from Latin America? A lot of teams try to come to Europe and bootcamp, so were you able to make it productive?

Yeah, it was really productive. We knew everyone talked about Europe having intelligent players who make smart plays, but playing here we saw that it's not just that, they also have the greatest aimers we've ever seen. We played all of the good teams that everyone knows, like Astralis, North, etc., but we also played a lot of tier 2 teams that are really awesome. Practicing here was like a wakeup call that we're not good enough to be playing at this level. We got beat a lot and that made us realize that we can't just bring our game and hope it goes well, we need to be more organized, more structured, and that was the main thing we noticed during this bootcamp.

Tell me a bit about future plans. You all live and play in Brazil now, have you thought of trying to make a move to another region?

We don't even live in a gaming house, we all live apart in Brazil. I live like 2000 miles away from the other guys, three players don't live in Sao Paulo, the main city in Brazil, so our next plan is to go to a gaming house and try to improve our practice. We have seven-hour practice days, but we feel like the productive time we have is like four hours, tops. We don't make the best of our time, and maybe in a gaming house, talking to each other in person, watching some demos, maybe we could improve more. Our next step isn't leaving Brazil, but moving into a gaming house and making the most of what we can do there.

What opportunities do you see in Brazil, and where do you see yourselves compared to the other teams in the region?

We are currently top 1 in Latin America. There's Isurus, the Argentinean team, they're really good and are more structured than us, but we have the best aimers and that's why we got this spot. Isurus and we are the top 2 teams, unrivaled. Next week we'll play Gamers Club Masters on LAN, which is played every trimester, and we already won the first one. I won't say we win every match, but out of every ten we'll lose one or two. We need to be like Astralis, where we win like 30 or 40 in a row. Being a little better than the other teams is not enough, we have to be much better than them, and we need to win every tournament. I think there's room to grow, even in Brazil, and then we can see if we can get to the next level.

Most people know vsm as the star player on the team, but for those who don't follow DETONA, can you tell me a bit about the team, the players, and so on...

I'm tiburci0, the in-game leader, and we don't have a main AWPer, so I take that role sometimes, or vsm takes it other times. He's the star player, he makes the highlight reel and makes the big plays. Tuurtle is our entry-fragger, he plays really well just rushing through sites, just runs in to try and get the first kill. prt is the support entry-fragger, the second one in trying to get the trade, and I think he's the primary aimer on our team. hardzao is the clutcher, the guy that doesn't die at the beginning of the round and is always alive. He makes good use of his grenades, he and I are the two more supportive players, and that's pretty much it. rikz is our head coach, he used to play professionally in 1.6. Everyone knows vsm because of the hype plays, but we're 6 members and everyone does their part.

As another Brazilian team starting to appear on the radar, what inspiration do you get from the likes of MIBR, FURIA, or even TeamOne?

FURIA were in Brazil playing against us one year ago and they made the right choices, the right roster moves, but the main reason that they grew so much was that they have the mentality of wanting to be the best players, which is something missing on our team, it's not our top priority. There are players that are going to college, others that stream and don't focus 100% on CS to be the best, and I think FURIA, MIBR, Luminosity, they leave everything else aside and just focus on CS. That's something I want in our team, I know we have the potential, but we have so much work we need to do. We need to embrace the tournament in Sweden, the Pro League, and use that to be the best that we can and so that everyone gives their lives for the game, that's what we need right now.

I mean atleast his teammates could pick esport and profit out of it. Most of them have t1 potential, but HIM? NAH he won't get anywhere past t3 cs, so sacrificing anything makes 0 sense for him.
