НОВЫЙ ТИММЕЙТ NAVI ! Boot Camp TOUR ! Zeus берёт интервьюOn February 14, 2020 by Raul Dinwiddie
Hello, guys. We’re in Madrid And now we’re going to talk to
NaVi’s new teammate. His name is Gleb He is our new psychologist. Tell us
how you got to NaVi and what you are doing How did you get to Madrid? I’ve been working as psychologist
since 20 years. I have two degrees Technical and psychological. While I was
studying psychology I worked in a hospital of medical psychology and psychotherapy
in Samara. I like helping people to solve their personal issues
or working with a group of people So at first I worked at the helpline
then I went on to… How many mentally sick people called you?
Can you tell us interesting cases? Hello, I feel so bad, I need a doctor People called saying they were depressed,
they didn’t want to live They said they would take too much medicine
if I didn’t talk to them Really?
Were there more male or female patients? Well, I had several cases with women So girls are more… Can you say
who is more tended to be stressed? No, because the main principles
of our brain’s work are identical How did you help them?
What did you say to them? I analyzed the problem, who this person is if he or she believes in what they’re saying,
I tried to imagine what was going next I tried to make him
visit the hospital for a consultation Did they want to see you or just anyone? It depends. You can’t work both with
children, family, anxiety and depression Jack of all trades, master of none After the hospital I’ve been working in
IT sphere in organizational psychology I worked with groups of people, I was
doing internal trainings, system building What is the name of your profession? Well, it’s called processual psychology,
organizational or industrial psychology So your task is to help a lot of people
at the same time? Your task is to help the system.
Like NaVi, it’s a team and a system At first I just watched your matches,
I didn’t even imagine working with you So I’ve been following your progress
as a team and as individual players I came to thinking that
it’s an interesting sphere to work in to use my professional skills
and teach you some technics We open this huge door and enter the coolest eSports center in Madrid So what do we see here? It’s not
a usual center, it’s the one we train in We have bootcamp here. We have some
free time so let’s show you something as we don’t have nothing to do.
But in the evening we go for a walk We are power together It’s organization Movistar’s center.
Or maybe it’s eSports center I know nothing to be honest. I just know
there is a big staff, Movistar plays here and something big is happening here Staff and players eat there.
It’s a dining room You can have a glass of beer
and relax here. It’s beer as far as I know Something like that,
not very interesting. Let’s go on It’s interesting here. We call it dressing
room but it’s something like room of fame Look. Beautiful T-Shirts Movistar.
Winners of DreamHack A hammer So everything is placed here,
there are some cool trophies What is the game? LoL maybe? This one is broken.
Ours are completely different Look. This one is for a console game They play Sony maybe I don’t know. There’s something else So here we sit and analyze the previous day prepare for the next day with our coach,
sports director and psychologist We make up a strategy for today,
what we are going to do and create new things. Let’s move on The most interesting secrets, that’s all
for you. We tell you the whole system Of course we won’t tell you all the details
but we’ll tell you how to progress and work hard I wanted to work with you since
the beginning. Not just with a random team I became your fan, I started to play
and I began to progress as an amateur Did you have set images of us?
Are they the same now? Many of my suppositions turned out
to be true concerning your character which you could see in the game.
When you watch the player carefully we talked about the focus today. All in all
I didn’t know what’ll face when I come Maybe you’d meet me aggressively,
like who I am to tell you something I was surprised that you’re open to work,
you’re ready to cooperate What are you going to do
with the team to solve the problems? We have a lot of psychological problems The first step is individual work with
players, solving their personal issues which worry you. It’s firstly Secondly, the team is a system which
has its own rules. And to make it work and the team win I need to find
cognitive and procedural errors For example, we found out that your team
is not disciplined almost at all We are disciplined
but not very much But it’s not enough to be the best.
We have to detail it So discipline is
following some set list of rules So we have to regulate the rules We just need to tell the guys
to be more organized and they don’t want it We have to regulate, document
and log the training process Everyone must know his role in the round.
You must use in- and extra-game rules and always follow them. This will exclude
misunderstanding between players We’re talking not only about sports
but about a team in general A team is not only in sports.
It is a group of people with a set goal If they don’t understand how to achieve it,
defects in the system arise The team works worse. And in important episodes
in which everyone must turn on the system collapses We’ve been working with Gleb for 3 days.
I think it was very productive I think we even progressed I think so too -Do you see potential?
-Of course To tell you the truth, I’m sure it all
makes sense and you have potential We’re moving in the right direction.
I’d like to acknowledge you as a good igl I think you made a good job Thanks a lot.
Usually I praise myself on my own -Captain needs to be supported
-So true! So thumbs up So we’re going to set up this system. If you
continue to follow it with determination you’ll achieve what you want Bootcamp is over. It was very productive.
We worked about 12 hours a day Of course we didn’t have much time,
there’s never enough time We always work but we haven’t worked
on our weak sides for a long time We’ve been training for different events
for a long time for a month or more
but we always lacked something Now we have a psychologist and it makes
difference. The main thing is that we see that we have to change something.
We tried to do it but we couldn’t So now we’re trying to set up this system We understand that we won’t make it in
2-3 days, we need weeks and months of work We have a strategy for Blast
and I’m sure we’ll perform well I don’t know the result
but I strongly hope and wish that in the situations in which
we couldn’t keep calm or play at our best we’ll be able to solve them and that
can lead us to the victory. We all hope so We have new rules about discipline, team’s
meetings, working system, games analysis individual and home work What the coach
and captain are responsible for how players should behave
in different situations So we’ve been working on all these
and we improved our game I look forward to play cs,
we’re waiting for the tournament Let’s cheer
and move to the victory together Thumbs up because I make these videos.
No one else is doing this for you I want to show the atmosphere here
so thumbs up and support us Here’s vending machine. I want to kick it
because we were late for praccs It lagged and didn’t give us snacks
or drinks I want this machine to work properly Usually we have cooked or ordered food
but here we have to use Uber eats or buy food here Girls and boys are working here.
You can see cs and Faceit on their pcs They are doing something,
maybe wiring something cs for us Don’t know what he’s doing
but now we get into our secret room where we played You can’t see this Here we wrote some nasty stuff, bad words,
what to do with others, who to hit So don’t look at it. Here we played,
trained, communicated What do you think will be
in esports in 5-10 years? I think today is an interesting moment
of a new era development Nobody could even imagine this 5 years ago And now esports become real sports.
Well, it’s a trite idea but We see the reality.
Esports become professional If we are not under drugs effect
and we see the reality Now we’re not drugged I think.
We look at the reality -Did you take the pills?
-No -And those I gave you?
-I left them at home A psychologist will become a necessary
element of an esports team in several years If now some teams boosted a lot, in several
years other teams will keep up with them The system is not perfect and the stress
we feel is survivals of past generations It has deep roots and we need to change it What method should the team use
to become the best? Carrot and stick? I don’t work with carrot and stick
approach, I use common sense It’s when a team has a goal, you have
to find the right algorithm to achieve it And if one doesn’t’ do anything you have
to find out why and analyze his motivation Is it good to hit people? I think the best way to make a person
efficient is to make him face the reality -It’s just conscience
-Mushrooms Those you gave me? You face a difficult reality.
I would even call it unreality If you eat a lot of mushrooms in esports
you will shoot well -Yes?
-I think so -I’ve never tried
-I’m not sure though, I didn’t test it If you put the team into a stressed
situation, will it improve in this aspect? Will it get used to it and
behave more properly in these situations? It’s the path of overcoming, of great stress
and pressure. If you don’t overcome you don’t do your best then.
It’s the first thing The second thing is how well you cope with
this stress and overcoming It concerns psychology. If players can’t cope
with the stress right and efficiently without harm, then that stressed atmosphere
can suppress them There are a lot of prejudices about
psychology, people don’t know what it is what psychologists do. They think he’s shaman
doing some nonsense healing some crazy things Those psychologist are just not very good.
The psychology must be easy to understand -Do you understand what I say?
-Yes. It’s very interesting Besides that we try to implement it to life -It’s very important
-That’s what the psychology is Not just to talk somebody’s ear off If you’re looking for a psychologist
you should ask him what he’s doing You can talk to several specialists,
there’s no limitation We need a psychologist, trainings,
the number of topics is endless Problems in the team, someone is raging,
someone is unsatisfied, has bad moral or he’s overemotional. We’re all different
and there are different situations everyday He lacks motivation or his teammate doesn’t
have motivation and he starts to worry There are a lot of variants.
And psychologist or anyone working with you must solve those situations. Many
psychologists become coaches in cs teams If you look at successful teams,
coaches are often over 30 years old because they’re experienced, they’ve already
faced it and can give right advice It’s important to see
how to solve the situation Young players start to tell their opinion
and argue And a more experienced one
can put everything in order Look for competent psychologists and
coaches, save your time and improve faster I can say that the work we did
in those 3 days can save you from wasting months of work If Gleb is working with you -Do you have Instagram acc?
-Yes We’ll leave a link. Subscribe I don’t have photos there, but I’ll
start using it if you leave my link Let’s subscribe to him. He’s an interesting
guy who can help with different problems It’s not a problem, write to me
and if it’s in my competence, I’ll help you We have tens of thousand viewers and
there’ll be at least one who’ll write you ‘Hey, you, Gleb, make the team play.
Calm s1mple down. Can you do it or not?’ And they all will write it to me? Usually yes I’m not avid for advice, you can write me Subscribe to Gleb. We welcomed him into our
team. We said him if he’d teach us badly we’ll have a serious talk.
Vanya practices some punches As soon as I came he started punching -Hey, you, leave that cognitive stuff
-Are you psychologist? So Gleb got everything
and we started to work I said ‘Guys, guys, I got it’ We keep working, the day after tomorrow
we have first matches If you see that during the event the team
behaves differently, don’t be surprised We’re moving in a certain direction,
we’re working It’s okay. If there is some stuff happening
just continue eating pop corn It’s cognitive movement Don’t forget to subscribe
