HObbit: "From the mechanics' side, I'm pretty sure Cloud9 is the top 3 team in the world"
Cloud9 player Abay "HObbit" Khasenov believes that in terms of individual skills, his team is among the top three representatives of CS:GO's pro scene. He spoke about this in an interview with the organizers of IEM Rio Major 2022.
During the interview, the Kazakh esports athlete also admitted that his team had mental problems.
We ourselves have a big potential to be the best team and everyone knows it, to be honest. Everyone's gonna say we have mental problems. Yes, of course, but it's fixable. <...> I mean, every time when we're playing any team, we are confident because we have a good structure, good discipline, good tactics, we have everything. From the mechanics' side, I'm pretty sure Cloud9 is the top 3 team in the world. Online era just showed everyone that we had the best mechanic skills at that moment. Of course, everyone adapted to us, but still we showed that we're capable to be the best team in the world. I mean, we have potential. We just need to fix the mental stuff.
Cloud9 will start their IEM Rio Major 2022 campaign today, October 31, when at 20:45 MSK they take on fnatic in their first match of the Challengers Stage.
