Jake "Slacks" Kanner got to interview Gaimin Gladiator's Anton "Dyrachyo" Shkredov who had a monster performance in the 2-0 win over Team Liquid at ESL ONE Major Berlin 2023.
The young position 1 player talked about team comms and how he is "never afraid" in the server.
You are just all smiles today, how are you feeling?
It feels good! Game 2 was a bit random because we won it pretty quick, but we lost some fights. Then when I made BKB, I was just saying "I can kill them all guys, I'm gonna kill them". When they start to walk in, I'm killing them. I don't give a f*ck, I'm killing them all. Then they just kept feeding 1 by 1 and we finished the game in 3 minutes.
Can you tell us a bit about your team comms and how you guys talk to each other during these games? It seems super high-energy.
When we are losing tOfu sometimes gets depressed and he is like giving this aura of "we cannot do anything, etc", sometimes it happens, it's okay. [On the other hand] me, if somebody dies, I'm not scared. I'm ready to fight 4v5, 3v5. The mid fight [in the last game], for example, it was a 4v5 fight but I'm not scared. I know that I'm going to kill them all, so just give me some help, that's all I need.

Have you ever been afraid in this Major?
It's hard to say, to be honest. Sometimes I'm just waiting for the moment, but I'm never afraid.
What are you guys doing for the next couple days?
We're just going to eat some big [hot]dog at the hotel, play some pubs and chill.
