dupreeh on his Major record: "It is an achievement I wouldn't have made without all of my teammates"

The sole player to make it to every CS:GO Major hopped on the latest episode of HLTV Confirmed to discuss Vitality's recent results, making it through the RMR, and much more.

Peter "⁠dupreeh⁠" Rasmussen made his long-awaited debut appearance on HLTV Confirmed on Friday to discuss Vitality's qualification to the Major and the addition of Lotan "⁠Spinx⁠" Giladi, chatting at length with the panel about how the team has been faring throughout the year and their uptick in form since the Israeli rifler's addition.

The Dane touched on the team's shaky start to the year and their lack of promising results early on, explaining that they changed their approach and mentality following the tournament break following the roster change.

"zonic was looking at us and he was like, 'we need to play more, we need to grind more, we need to do some more stuff and we need to prove that we are the team that we want to be,' dupreeh started off by saying. "I think everyone just realized that it was about time to put in the effort and put in more time, and all the hard work that we put in for this season so far definitely paid off."

dupreeh discussed the role clash between him and misutaaa

When asked about what the focus has been on when playing more, whether it be on individual practice or as a team, dupreeh said it was a mix, explaining that the players have been putting in more practice hours on their own while fixing mistakes far faster than they had previously as a team. He also touched on the plethora of analytical tools and YouTube content that is available to teams, appreciating how much information and strategy is already broken down to steal and implement, while reflecting that it also forces players to constantly evolve as those new approaches are constantly found out as well.

He then spoke at length about the issues Vitality has experienced since his arrival, from role clashes with himself and Kévin "⁠misutaaa⁠" Rabier to struggles with communication in the roster, which he later rated as a 6.5 out of ten in terms of how much of an issue it was for the team, with ten being the worst. He also drew a comparison to how the former Astralis roster had a role clash between him and Markus "⁠Kjaerbye⁠" Kjærbye, before remarking on how the team performed after that was resolved and their roles fit better with Emil "⁠Magisk⁠" Reif joining.

"We did have the role issue back in the days with misutaaa and myself," dupreeh confirmed. "We both wanted to be the aggressive player, we both wanted to be able to take map control and we did not like to be in lurk positions, or at least positions where you would have to play... I'd say more smarter in some way. We wanted to be where the action was, and I think that was the big issue that we had, that I had to play a lot of positions that I did not feel comfortable in, and whenever I got into positions that I really liked to play, then misutaaa had to play them."

The 29-year-old reiterated sentiments made by Magisk and Danny "⁠zonic⁠" Sørensen in previous interviews, describing how the team had expected themselves to have results much faster, but struggled to overcome communication issues presented by the foundation of a new lineup with players who had never played on an international team before, and their failure to merge the styles of Astralis and Vitality as they had attempted early on.

Those same issues are less present now though, something which has enabled Vitality to have a more successful stint in the second half of the year. "It's a lot more calm nowadays," dupreeh said. "The communication in the team right now is a lot more smooth and it's a lot more calm, I think we're a lot better at not putting too much pressure on the things that doesn't need to have pressure."

In later parts of the episode, dupreeh gave his thoughts on the way teams are approaching the game now and how much focus there is on finding information, especially on the CT side. He also discussed Vitality's path through the RMR and being the only player left to make it to every single CS:GO Major, a title he now holds after Andreas "⁠Xyp9x⁠" Højsleth, the only other player who still held that status, failed to qualify with Astralis.

"Sure, it is a big individual achievement for me, but it is also an achievement I wouldn't have made without all of my teammates, current ones and previous ones. I'm really happy, but at the same time, I feel like I owe a lot of people some nice words. " dupreeh, acknowledging that he wouldn't be able to do this alone. "It is kind of unreal, looking from the outside people are praising me a lot more than I do myself because making 18 out of 18 Majors is really really huge, but it is what I expected from myself. Every time going into the Major I wanted to make sure I was participating."
