Following this, he stated that the roster should have been better at reading other teams, such as Team XO. He emphasized that team reading is very important and is the responsibility of the in-game leader (IGL). “According to me, they should have read teams, like Team XO is playing. Team reading is very important, which the IGL has to do,” he added.
MortaL also showed confidence in the team. “Don’t worry, no matter how this tournament ends, I’m very confident about this team,” he said. MortaL also noted that the team lost the tournaments because of their small mistakes.

MortaL emphasized that Team XO is a clear example for all esports athletes, showing that success is possible with enough effort and determination.
