Jame on duel with m0NESY at IEM Katowice 2022: You can expect anything from him

Virtus.pro's in-game leader Dzhami "Jame" Ali during the press conference for the IEM Katowice 2022 playoffs participants shared his opinion about G2's AWPer Ilya "m0NESY" Osipov, who he will face in the quarterfinals of the tournament. He positively assessed the actions of the 16-year-old player, yet noted that in addition to the youngster, the team has other heavy hitters.

The parts quoted are the translation from our Russian website.

I don't really outline m0NESY in G2, because besides him I have to play against Aleksib and NiKo, who has a 1.50 rating. I admit that he is a very strong sniper and can surprise. You can expect anything from him, but we regularly play against ZywOo, s1mple and sh1ro, so we're already immune to superstar players.

Ali also commented on the words of Heroic's Ismail "refrezh" Ali, who, after defeating Virtus.pro in the group stage, called the playstyle of VP slow.

We lost Mirage being 5:10 down for the defense, the same thing on Vertigo when the scoreline was 4:11. We didn't play very slowly. I can't draw any conclusions about the slow style from this match. But, perhaps, we played with certain clichés, since that's what refrezh says. I don't think he said it for nothing. <...> Gathering information and making decisions in the middle of the round is what we do, how we play. We do not plan out the map during the freeze time.

The quarterfinal match of IEM Katowice 2022 between Virtus.pro and G2 will take place on February 25. The winner of the meeting will face NAVI to fight for a grand final spot of the prestigious tournament.
