During a recent interview with RuHub after a win in the Dota Pro Circuit (DPC), Team Spirit's carry, Illya "Yatoro" Mulyarchuk, shared his thoughts on the new OG roster.
Even though Yatoro mentioned that OG is a decent team, he dislikes the way they behave in officials, in particular, hitting out at OG's 16-year-old offlaner, Ammar "ATF" Al-Assaf.
Yatoro sarcastically also said that ATF types 'GG' way too fast before he has the chance to drop Mantles of Intelligence at his base.

Team Spirit is currently on an 11-series winning streak, continuing to perform well even after the conclusion of The International 10 (TI10). Team Spirit has been substantially dominant against all of its opponents following TI10 and has barely been put to the test. One of the few opponents to put up a decent fight against the TI champions was OG in the OGA Dota PIT S5: Europe/CIS. During a recent interview with RuHub, after a win in the Dota Pro Circuit (DPC), Team Spirit's carry, Illya "Yatoro" Mulyarchuk, shared his thoughts on the new OG roster. Even though Yatoro mentioned that OG is a decent team, he dislikes the way they behave in officials, in particular, hitting out at OG's 16-year-old offlaner, Ammar "ATF" Al-Assaf.

Yatoro shares his thoughts on OG’s new squad

After Team Spirit's victory over Team Empire in the DPC Eastern Europe (EEU) 2021-22 Tour 1: Division 1, Yatoro showed up for the post-match winner’s interview. Yatoro did not mention OG in his remarks about several Western European teams that he considered to be strong, to which he was posed the question of whether he believed OG to be a strong team.

With a smile on his face, Yatoro commented on the team's behavior in games. He sarcastically also said that ATF types 'GG' way too fast before he has the chance to drop Mantles of Intelligence at his base.

“OG is a good team, but I don’t like the way they behave in official games and how ATF behaves in matchmaking. He writes ‘GG’ before I can even get to the fountain and throw mantles. But that’s okay, I hope they make it to the Majors.”

Yatoro most likely made this remark in response to ATF dropping Mantles of Intelligence in enemy bases in recent OG games. Just as OG was about to destroy the enemy Ancients, ATF would go to the enemy Fountain, purchase the item, and drop it outside it.

Yatoro also touched on the teams in his region, listing the ones he believed would qualify for the first Major of the season.

“HR (HellRaisers) has almost a good lineup, they can show a nice game. I think we and HellRaisers will pass to the Major. What about the third team? Honestly, I think NAVI will not get there, they don’t play very well yet. But, Virtus.pro, I think, will make it, because they already have a complete team with three players left from the previous squad. They can do well.”

Team Spirit and HellRaisers are currently at the top of the DPC EEU Division 1 standings, both with three wins in three series. Virtus.pro is at the number four spot with two wins and one loss, and NAVI is at the number five spot with one win and one loss. Aside from these four teams, PuckChamp has also looked impressive and is currently ranked third with three wins and one loss.
