Yekindar compared the atmosphere in Virtus.pro and Team Liquid.
“The first couple of days I didn’t talk very much. I spent two years in a Russian-speaking team. I’m studying. Sometimes it is difficult to explain what you want, but this is not because of the language barrier, but because of understanding. Sometimes I want to call something in the middle of a round and people don’t understand me because they’ve never done it before. It is difficult to explain my ideas in the moment, so I try to do it before the match. If this situation happens, then everyone knows what to do. This saves time and no one makes mistakes.
Leaving VP? It’s just between me and the organization. Obviously, I can’t discuss the details of our agreement. But when I can leave the organization, I will. What is the agreement? That eventually I will leave VP and it will be easier.
I felt a huge difference. People are used to playing from individual skill. Nitr0 said that they used to play default, and in the middle of the round they tried to come up with something. Now at the top level you can’t play like that. Only if you don’t have five unrealistic individual players who understand each other perfectly.
When I came here, I saw that people treat CS differently. Not the way I’m used to in VP. I shared my experience and knowledge with the guys, tried to find the good sides of each other. There was a professional environment in VP where we were teammates who had to win. Robots. There are jokes and conversations. It feels more relaxed than tense,” said Mareks “Yekindar” Galinskis.
