FalleN before the match against Outsiders: "Jame's style is similar to Imperial's game and the way I see CS"
In a press conference ahead of the Play-In stage at IEM Cologne 2022, Imperial's in-game leader Gabriel "FalleN" Toledo shared his opinion on Outsiders, who his team will face off against in their first match of the tournament. Answering a question from a CSGO.com journalist, the eminent Brazilian drew attention to the similarity of his playstyle to the way Dzhami "Jame" Ali's roster works.
The parts quoted are the translation from our Russian website.
Outsiders seem to be a good team. Jame knows CS very well and understands how to play prudently. You can see how structured his team is. To be honest, his style is similar to Imperial's game and the way I see CS. We have played against each other before in praccs and these matches have always been very slow. Everyone is trying to avoid mistakes and understand what is in the opponent's head and what to do next. Due to the similar style, our game will be interesting.
FalleN also commented on the recent lineup change of Outsiders. He believes that the addition of new young players to the team can have a positive effect on other members of the squad.
Recently, Outsiders signed talented guys. This guy, fame, is very young and eager to prove himself, improve his game. I think the new blood can light a fire in other guys from their roster. Yesterday, they already showed what they are capable of in the final against Movistar Riders. They almost managed to win this match against the team that was supported in the home arena.
The best-of-one meeting between Imperial and Outsiders as part of the Play-In stage at IEM Cologne 2022 will take place tomorrow, July 5, and will kick off at 13:15 MSK.
