sdy reveals: Woro2k will take over the IGL-role for now

Monte will have both bad preparations and new roles to deal with in Malta.

Before the start of Group B at ESL Pro League Season 18, we had a talk with Viktor "sdy" Orudzhev about the team and his own role as an in-game leader. Or so we thought. During the interview, the former NAVI-player revealed, that the team has switched the duty of in-game leader to Volodymyr "Woro2k" Veletnjuk, who will be calling the shots from the get-go on Monte.

- We change in-game leader for this tournament and maybe for further. We will get Woro back to calling start rounds, and I will mid-call, and we will try to work this way combined together, so it will be easier for all of the team, sdy explained to

The departure of Mohammad "BOROS" Malhas has left the team with too few aggressive players, which is the reasoning behind “freeing” up Viktor "sdy" Orudzhev.

- As Boros left the team we were missing aggressive players who were taking space, so I will focus on that and on my individual game more in the start of the rounds. It will be a bit easier for me in the start, the 26-year-old Ukrainian explained.

“There is no room for preparations”

We have had problems with our health. The same players got sick. There is no room for preparations is all I can say. Right now, we will prepare our game here in Malta, Viktor "sdy" Orudzhev said.

The situation in Ukraine with the war against Russia has not helped Monte either. The three Ukrainians on the team are obliged to follow the martial law that are currently in place in Ukraine, where men aged 18-60 who are deemed fit for combat are restricted from leaving the country. Viktor "sdy" Orudzhev, Volodymyr "Woro2k" Veletnjuk, and Serghij "DemQQ" Demchenko all need special permission to leave the country to play in tournaments.

- We can only travel with the permission of our government which is basically for the tournaments. We get permission for two weeks, and we go out for the tournaments and then in time we need to be back to the border to sign papers that we are back.

The situation has so far prevented the team from bootcamping, but that might change in the near future.

- In bootcamps it is much easier to fix our game and get better. But we will have it a bit later, maybe before IEM Sydney, because we should have longer permission, Viktor "sdy" Orudzhev says.

Monte will face BIG in the opening round of Group B in ESL Pro League 18 later today. In the full interview below, you can hear more about that match and also more about the change of in-game leader.
