Vladimir 'RodjER' Nikogosian said that he wants to quickly forget the time spent in Darkside. He spoke about this in an interview with Cybersport.metaratings.
According to the e-sportsman, the team members could not play well, and also had problems with the hero pool. In the DPC 2023 Spring tour for Eastern Europe, DarkSide finished last in the first division with an 0-7 record and only one map won in 15 games.
Darkside was then represented by: dizzying, re1bl, DkFogas, RodjER and SoNNeikO.
“Honestly, I don’t want to say anything about Darkside at all, because everything is clear there. Nothing good has happened. On paper, the roster was good, in reality people didn’t have chemistry. It was difficult to play, besides, there were problems with the character pool. I would like to forget about this “dark times” as soon as possible,"admitted RodjER.
The esportsman also said that he was very pleased to take part in the major tournament after a four-year pause. Before acting as a stand-in for 9 Pandas at ESL One Berlin Major 2023, RodjER played for the last time at EPICENTER Major 2019. At the Berlin Major, he managed to take third place with the team.
As CyberScore reported, 9 Pandas received a penalty for all the matches of the DPC 2023 Tour 3.
