Coach talks about the coming games

Coach of ua NAVI.GG.BET ua Mykhailo "Kane" Blagin shared his first impressions regarding the team's stay in Dallas on his VK page. Mykhailo spoke about the problems of the first game day, the adaptation of the team to difficult conditions and the mood of the guys for the upcoming games.

"Hello! I have not written anything for a long time, but now it's 5:00 am in Dallas and not so much to do. Waking up at 5 am is a usual story after flying to the United States, the very same jetlag. You get the message about the start of the media day at 9:15, and you understand: a great time, no one will be late :). Thoughts about the rivals:  the group is good, but it's only at first glance.

The most difficult day is the first game. I'll try to explain. Accidents are not accidental. br SK got beaten by au Grayhound at IEM Sydney. I readily believe in the talent of the team from Australia, but it has been proven many times: 6 hours is a lot of time between the matches, and this is especially felt in the early days when the teams have not yet fully adapted to the new conditions. This is how our game with us NRG may end if both of us win the first games (with dk Heroic, everything will be even).

The task, as you see, is not simple, yesterday we tried a bit of physical work for that time. I still would like more communication with the organizers in terms of scheduling: when the tournament goes for a week, you can find options to avoid such problems. We believe everything will turn out well."
