m0NESY on adaptation in G2: Every teammate supports me and helps with everything

Ilya "m0NESY" Osipov, a player of G2, during the press conference for IEM Katowice 2022 group stage participants spoke about how the adaptation period is going for him in the new team. Answering a question from a CSGO.ru journalist, he emphasized that despite the difference in mentality, all the teammates provide the necessary support.

The 16-year-old Russian also noted that he does not feel pressured because of the inflated expectations of the fans.

The parts quoted are the translation from our Russian website.

When I joined G2, I didn’t have any pressure from what people write in chat and comments. I don’t really read comments and I don’t advise others, because there are a lot of people who just write a lot. Players, those who read it, begin to worry. I don't do that.

The CIS and Europe have a different mentality, approach to training and everything else. In G2, every teammate supports me and helps with everything, so it's easy for me.

m0NESY added that thanks to the similarity of the cultures, he has developed good relations with the Bosnians Nikola "NiKo" Kovač and Nemanja "huNter-" Kovač.

Since they are also Slavs, we often have a good laugh about stuff. Some words in our languages are the same. I don't know if it helps or not, but I feel comfortable.

Osipov also commended the Frenchman Audric "JACKZ" Jug, with whom he communicates more than with the rest of his G2 teammates.

Most likely, yes, I talk with JACKZ the most. He is a very positive person both in life and in the game. On the server, he is serious. <...> Everyone in the team is very kind and supports each other. It helps a lot.

The next match of G2 will take place on Friday, February 18, as part of IEM Katowice 2022. The opponent of the European team will be known after the completion of all the matches of the Play-In stage.
