degster: "I am looking only for international teams; NAVI I think can be possible"

With a fantastic showing in Lisbon under his belt, Abdul "⁠degster⁠" Gasanov took some time with HLTV for an interview to talk about his experience at the event and his future.

degster came into BLAST Premier Spring Finals as a last-minute replacement, taking up the AWPing mantle for OG, and he did not disappoint, helping the new-look roster make a swashbuckling run all the way to the semi-finals.

The Russian sniper's personal performance was a huge factor in this run, with the AWPer being the sixth-highest rated player in the tournament and appearing near the top in a host of other categories like total AWP kills, multi-kill rounds and opening kill success.

degster's performance and personality won many fans during BLAST

After enjoying his appearance in the showmatch before the grand final, degster sat down with HLTV to talk about his tournament performance, elaborate on why he is looking for European team offers, and to share what his plans are for the immediate future.

How are you feeling after that showmatch? It looked like a lot of fun up there!

Yes it was great, very cool (smiles) but I got knifed one time, I will remember the nickname of this guy and I hope we will meet in official matches. We will see who will have fun there (laughs).

What has tournament been like for you overall, it must have been a crazy experience?

It’s a crazy experience, it’s my chance to show myself in an international team because right now I am looking only for international teams in my career, except NAVI, and when I am talking about NAVI I always talk about in the CIS region they have some of the smartest people in Counter-Strike history.

This was very good for me, I wasn’t scared when OG asked me to go to Lisbon. I was at home and I didn’t play CS for five days, after I left Spirit I was having a break for myself, and I say yes okay, they gave me two hours to decide and I said yes okay I will fly tomorrow for you. I was confident, I understand that it was cool that I didn’t feel scared.

So you have said that you are looking only for international offers, unless of course NAVI came knocking. Why do you prefer international over a CIS team?

First of all, VP and Cloud9 are closed. VP have Jame as caller, Cloud9 have their own sniper, and they are playing in two different styles of AWPing and I understand that it’s not possible. NAVI I think can be possible, I’m not looking only for them, but I am just saying that if they start talks with me I will agree to join.

Otherwise, in Europe, I can join a lot of good teams and I can work with a lot of good players, new players that I didn’t meet at all. That’s good experience for me in my life and career, it’s like every single sport that we have in the world, when someone is from his own country, leaving towards Europe helps him get better as a person, get good organisations, and they help him level up in everything. That’s what I want.

You were one of the best performers in this tournament, how were you able to do so well as a stand-in coming in on such short notice?

The most important reason is that nexa and Casper said to me that I could do whatever I want, and they would adapt for me. That is very important because with my style of AWP, I cannot adapt for them, I am doing a lot of aggression, all that I need is help from them and for them to be ready to fight with me. They were ready, nexa was saying “do whatever you want, I will adapt,” and that’s very good to hear because you understand that this man who didn’t know you two days before believes in you more than some of your teammates.

It paid off, you played really well!

Yes (smiles).

Specifically you have had great success in opening kills, the highest success rate in the tournament I believe, why do you think you are able to be so efficient in that regard?

Actually I wasn’t thinking about it. I remember some moments when I am catching people, like s1mple on Ancient, it was very funny to watch when he saw me and he was jumping, he was trying to live (laughs).

I think it is one of my skills, I am not thinking about it I can just feel it when I can kill someone.

So it is just a result of the aggressive playstyle?

Of course, if you are playing safe and throwing flashes you cannot get a first kill as a sniper (laughs).

In my opinion the sniper is a very powerful weapon, and if you can do that why would your teammates ask you not to do it? It’s the most powerful weapon and if your sniper is good on it, why shouldn’t he play aggressive.

If I could touch on you leaving Team Spirit, obviously you had your reasons, but considering the success at the Major and the potential that seemed to be there, were you disappointed to not see where it could go?

I would like to say that when we started to talk about moving and leaving, the two decisions, I was disappointed because I was not ready to choose between the two. After they gave me time to think I was already ready, I made the decision, I have confidence in it and I was happy that I made the decision. I wrote a list about what would be good or what would be bad, and I wrote a lot for leave, but I wrote not a lot to stay.

I chose what I want to do in my life, and I chose what person I want to be. I am happy with my decision, if I have made a mistake, I will work on it and learn from it.

What is the plan now, obviously the player break is coming up, are you going to try and talk to teams then?

First of all I want to have a break, in the last five years of my career I didn’t have any break, never. I was not going outside and stuff like that, I would work in my breaks.

Right now I understand that I have gone through a lot of stuff, it was a hard period for me, so I want to have a break in the summer. After that I will speak with teams that already invited me, I have not read any invites because of this tournament, and I said to myself to focus on that and after you will talk about it.

I will take a break, after that I will choose who will be my team for the Rio Major and the next year.

Have you already had offers?

I am not going to lie, I have not read my email, even today still because I woke up and went for the showmatch (laughs).

i think with degster they could really win something. hades just doesn't have star power yet, if he ever will. these days, high fragging awpers can carry teams to tournament wins. we all know the names. hades isn't one of those high fragging awpers yet. not even close IMO. look at his rating.

S1mple told himself that he is considering taking a break, until that degster could also play as a second AWPer, when he tooks the break degster could play as the main awper and they could play with sdy considering his previous performance. Doesn't sound the best option but you can always benefit a player like degster imo.

Not sure if NaVi is the best option since once s1mple decides to come back he most likely will have to leave. Depends on their contract and what kind of agreements they will reach ofc mostly, but still, I hardly imagine that NaVi will not let s1mple come back.

if you think s1mple will retire at the peak of his career you are delusional. He himself said multiple times that he will continue on as long as he can and will change towards the IGL role when he feels like his skill is going down and he cannot compete with other star players anymore.

Zywoo in rifler role wouldnt have nowhere near impact as he has now. When navi did that with guardian and s1mple, s1mple stats fell and his impact too. That didnt workout at all for navi and thats why it lasted like 6 months before s1mple went back to awping. They are good with rifles but they are not as good as NiKo.

"S1mple had 1.29 rating with rifle." I forgot to mention that that rifle was krieg when it was op. Issue was not only guardian, the issue was that s1mple was still baiting and playing like he was the awper and not guardian. Barely tried to make an oppening kill or make a play without sending his teammate 1st. He wasnt the one who made the plays he was the one waiting for something to happen. Then u have riflers like NiKo and ax1le who actually make plays for the team...S1mple was playing similiar like blameF, baiting and trading kills...Im not hating on him or anything, all im saying is that they wouldnt have an impact anywhere close like they do now.

2022-06-22 09:14
The reason why it didnt work for navi is because guardian had no impact as an awper. S1mple still was the 2nd best player of that year. It wasn't the dip in his rifling that made that NAVI not work out. It was guardian. I wholeheartedly believe zywoo is a top 5 rifler in the world and he will be as good as niko in those star roles - Coming from a s1mple fan.

s1mple never had issues with switching to rifle/2nd awp. It's what happened when Guardian came back, albeit the latter was playing bad hence it did not work out. I bet Navi are probably regretting letting m0nesy go. If m0nesy stayed in Navi, he'd definitely be picked up to the main squad over Boombl4 and s1mple would switch. It would require m0nesy to become a very agressive awper though.

just watch those games, simple was far from his level when he had to switch
2022-06-21 21:57
Navi still had FLAMIE, and Guardian was ass during s1mple's transition in 2019. Given more time and a better roster, he could have done well as a rifler. I definitely wouldn't say it's s1mple's fault he couldn't transition. He is just so good at awping and his impact with the awp is so high, his rifling just pales in comparison. He uses the ak occasionally when the situation allows and does well with it though. btw, s1mple was also a hybrid when he carried liquid to the semis & final of majors. jdm and adren were main awpers.

you could make a significantly better team than Liquid with just those players you mentioned, irrespective of roles lol. With guys like Yekindar and degster floating around I think another very strong CIS team could be made. Jks, brehze and floppy wish they could play with guys of that caliber, but they're no where near the same level sadly. I think Jks is a better fit for liquid than Degster or Yekindar.

Nah, replace him with Yekindar. Degster picked a wrong time to leave Spirit, if OG or Liquid won’t pick him up, he’s gonna end up somewhere in tier 2. Nobody needs a sniper right now.

Blad3 thought the same once. And it is easier to do it while they search for a new system since Boombl4 kick. So if they want to change it, it is the best time NOW. And it isn't about who is better AWP it is about what's best for the team. Realize it right?

If s1mple takes a break most likely NaVi will go on a break as well with a possibility of renting their active players. It’s hard to find a team for degster right now, nobody’s looking for an awper in international tier 1 teams. Maybe except Liquid.

It's not convenient for sdy to play not on his positions, you just need to give him time. And most likely they need to keep the majority of Ukrainians in roster.

"First of all, VP and Cloud9 are closed. VP have Jame as caller, Cloud9 have their own sniper, and they are playing in two different styles of AWPing and I understand that it’s not possible. NAVI I think can be possible" Come on man, teams should absolutely be fighting over you but NAVI is not possible. Pretty much why they sold m0NESY. I don't think there are MANY options though. A few weeks ago, fnatic could've been one but they already go nicoodoz. OG makes the most sense. F1KU and NEOFRAG are legit signings and with loose IGL like nexa that gives you the space you need, it would make the most sense. The only other option is ENCE but I don't see them dropping hades while being a top3 team. But ENCE with an aggressive awper would be scary.

So he requires an entire team to play around him? Sure if S1mple retires he can join Navi because they essentially play around S1mple already, but other then that it's gonna be hard for him to find a team if this is the case.

-broky not happening. I also think broky is a better fit for FaZe. -hades can happen, idk much about ence dynamics tho degster on NaVi depends on s1mple moves. if s1mple wants to play, I think bringing degster would waste the potential of two stars... the same goes for degster in vitality with zywoo around. -mantuuu is a viable option, even tho mantuuu is the second best player in OG. +desgter in AST, FURIA, NIP, Heroic or BIG will not happen for obvious reasons. Putting him in G2, C9 or VP is a waste as well. BNE, ECSTATIC and forZe are good downgrades for him. Endpoint, Entropiq and MouZ are a waste of time for him. ENCE and OG are the only viable options.
