BetBoom Team’s offlaner Egor ``Nightfall" Grigorenko talked about the reasoning behind his role as an offlaner. Following his return from North America after The International 2022 (TI11), Nightfall reunited with former teammates Danil ``gpk” Skutin and Vitalie “Save-” Melnic at BetBoom Team.

"There are no good offlaners either in CIS or the rest of the world" - Nightfall on becoming BetBoom’s offlaner

During the post-match interview with Russian livestreamer Alexander “Nix” Levin, according to, Nightfall talked his role as an offlaner, despite the player being known as a natural carry player during his time at

He initially noted that he had considered playing as a carry for the new BetBoom Team roster, however after much consideration and discussion with his teammates he realized that the team would benefit from his previous experience as an offlaner for Evil Geniuses.

“Yeah, I had these thoughts. Of course, we cycled through different options, including the one where I would carry. But, to be honest, when we were building the roster, I more or less realized that we would do better with me as position 3.” he said.

He further mentioned that there were not a lot of good offlaners within the region or the rest of the world. He additionally noted that he was willing to continue playing as an offlaner, as he wanted to play alongside his teammate Vitalie “Save-” Melnic.

“Because there are no good offlaners either in EEU or the rest of the world. But I can be one of them, so to speak. It's easier to get a tier-1 carry rather than searching for a position 3 player from scratch. At the assembling phase, it became clear that I must be the offlaner to make our team stronger. And it's not like I was against that, since we wanted to play the same lane with Save-.”
