arT: "When you play with so much strategy, you can't see much of what's happening"

The Brazilian in-game leader wasn't happy with the number of set strategies FURIA used on their T side.

FURIA are off to a rough start at IEM Dallas, where Andrei "⁠arT⁠" Piovezan and his men lost their opening best-of-one on Inferno to OG. The Brazilians brought the map back to a full 30 rounds in the end, but lost after clawing their way back from a slow start on the attack which put them at a 4-11 deficit at the half.

arT admits that FURIA's T side currently lacks adaptability

HLTV caught up with FURIA's in-game leader after he and his team were knocked down to the lower bracket, where they are set to face off against Nouns, to hear about his thoughts regarding the poor T-side showing and where that puts his side moving forward in Dallas.

You lost your opening match to OG, what went wrong on that map for you?

I'd say it's mostly the T side.

Yeah, pretty similar to some of the issues you had at the Major, the T side was a recurring problem. Is it the style switch-up that's an issue for you?

Yeah, we actually changed up a lot of stuff, so it's all different. It has a lot of problems that we don't have before that just happen.

What would you say some of those problems are?

It's hard to say because when you play with so much strategy, you can't see much of what's happening. We did a lot of "ready" strats from before the matches, so whenever you're doing strats from off the book and you are not adapting that fast, things get too easy for them to read us and it's rough to come back after you lose some rounds in a row. It's a lot of things.

Something KSCERATO told me at the Major was that the rest of the team felt they were adapting pretty well to the new style. Would you say the issues you're talking about is something you're struggling with specifically, or is it the whole team?

It's hard to say, I don't know exactly. For me individually it's fine, but I don't know how the other guys feel, it's different for everybody.

KSCERATO on FURIA's new style: "I like to play like this because I'm not a guy who goes aggressive so much"

Right now and especially after the Major, there's a lot of conversation about whether FURIA are making changes or whether that is something they're exploring. Do you have anything to say about that?

I don't know what it's going to be exactly after this event, I think we're going to have the player break and we're going to talk about it, but I don't know. That's all, I don't have any more comments about that.

This loss means you're in the lower bracket. How are you feeling given that loss and going into the next match?

Yeah it's tough, the first match loss is always tough. We need to get way better in the next match, otherwise that's it, that's GG, but we still need to improve our game a lot and very fast. Otherwise, it's going to be a bad tournament for us; we need to adapt faster.

i really don't get why people are picking on the title?. i get it he's been a dogwater igl for so long true, but he does make a point, if you look at how most teams play, there's always 3-4 rounds of random slow / fast pace ( depending on the team's usual pace ) rounds where the team just wants to read the enemy strat slowly or they wait for any contact to happen at another point of the map and then taking advantage of the weaknesses otherwise. for example na'vi, they usually play a medium paced game, however from time to time they'd leave it to the literal last 15 seconds to execute. also people don't put in as much focus on gueri as they do on arT for some reason, i feel like its the coach's responsibility to let an IGL know that he's being delulu after a long period of denial. just an opinion. P.S. also it kinda does hurt my soul to see him compare whatever they do by calling it strategy to actual strategies lol

very true. Strategies have to be bare bones, otherwise you get too caught up in it and cant adapt to the game. I think NaVi is also a prime example of this.

That's what I was thinking. This team is clearly over but they're probably not making changes until CS2 at this point, or at least the player break.

Fucking. Bots. All of them. Since the beginning, but perhaps by the end some of those puppets will have turned into real boys and do something worth watching that they'll actually be able to explain honestly to the interviewer/audience.

Too many people mix up the terms tactics and strategy. Basically, strategy is the bigger picture and more general than tactics. Includung it in the header, tells me that nohte also don't get it.

Man honestly, like he sounds so clueless, like, playing strategical means you don't know what's happening on the map? Like what the hell is this reasoning, I was defending this guy for a long time but I really don't think he should be playing in a Tier1 team anymore. This FURIA team doesn't give me any confidence really, like, they can lose to everybody playing like this, maybe even Nouns, who knows, it's just very dissapointing from every angle you look at it.

💯 Thieves/ex-Renegades probably care. Despite both having died for what is now considered yet another "dead team" (as you kindly noted) it is still possible to want the truth & justice.
2023-05-30 00:36
That's not "strategy", it's essentially cheating. Just because the cheating is referred to by another word that isn't "cheating" doesn't mean that isn't what transpired. If you couldn't see what's happening during a competition, it's because someone didn't want you to know that something considered by the audience to be an unfair advantage to a team that goes against stated regulations of the organization holding the competition occurred. The members of Furia (and many other teams) belong in prison, not on a stage.
