Kirill Karasiow, known as “ANGE1,” is a 31-year-old Ukrainian former CS:GO player who is known for his time with Hellraisers. Since August 2020, he has been playing Valorant for FunPlus Phoenix.

ANGE1 spoke in a recent interview with Hotspawn and talked about their improvements, performances, Astra’s place in meta, and he also revealed why they have been practicing against the Turkish teams instead of the European teams.

In the conversation, ANGE1 mentioned that they don’t want to play against European teams in the practice because they could face them in the tournaments and this is one of the reasons why they don’t prefer to play against them.

Furthermore, ANGE1 pointed out that they have been playing scrims with lots of Turkish teams and said that their game style is similar to the North American scene, which is a more aggressive style, and this could help them play against the NA teams in Masters final in Iceland.

Interviewer asked:

“This books you a spot in the Challengers Final along with teams from Turkey and CIS. You spent years as a mainstay in the CIS Counter-Strike scene. What can you expect out of teams from these regions? Has anyone already caught your eye?”

ANGE1 replied:

“I think Gambit is a good team, both them and forZe have been fighting for first place in all the tournaments from Riot. We’re playing a lot, and I mean a lot, of Turkish teams for practice. We preferred to practice against them and not against the European teams we would meet in tournaments.

Those teams are playing a much more North American style; more aggressive, more peaks, more duels for the sake of duels. It’s good preparation for the Masters in Iceland when we finally meet NA.”
