About bootcamp and practice

— Our practice begins on 3 pm and lasts until 11 pm. In addition to that, you should warm up inbefore that. On bootcamp we don't have day-offs and can mind our business only if there are no opponents. And this is when we go for a walk, relax or play - that's up to players. Usually we have 2 day-offs a week. We have also been called to China Top 2017 in the town of Kunshan. We're leaving on October 27th and will be flying to Germany in a week to visit ROG Masters 2017. In the meantime we're having EPICENTER qualifiers.

Problems with the internet

— Until 18 I have been living in Naro-Fominsk, then we sold the apartments and moved to the country house. There was no cable internet there so we connected a satellite. If the weather was bad the ping was jumping up and down. When the storm began it completely disappeared. So I was kicked from the team because I was disconnecting in the middle of official games. I understood that because guys had to grow and it was impossible with me in the team. But I liked playing anyways. My mom was crying back then, saying: "It's all because of me, it's all because we moved". She was worried.

In order to get cable internet we had to pay around 500 thousand rubles (~$9,000). And we made it recently - we were allowed to connect 10 houses with each paying 20 thousand. Now I'm incredibly happy to have good internet. Back when we lived in one-room apartments she slept in the kitchen and heard me play, she was screaming at me to go sleep. She swore I was playing. I didn't do my homework and was only getting C's at school. Every day I was going home to play CS!

About hobbies

— I used to read books earlier, now I haven't got time - I work in the garden! I try to spend free time with my family. There's no time for hobby - I've always got something to do. When I wasn't playing in a team I went to the gym and lost some weight. At least I pumped my hands a little. I gotta do it more, but haven't got time.
