Rapid fire interview with Tsvetelin "CeRq" Dimitrov

Wed Aug 17 2022 00:00:00 GMT+0000 (Coordinated Universal Time)

Player name: Tsvetelin "CeRq" Dimitrov Mangalski 

Team position: AWPer

First Nickname on Server: c3r99

How did you get involved with Counter-Strike and how did your journey begin? 

Watching my cousin play COD4 ProMod and then playing CS 1.5 and 1.6 really got me wanting to play all the time.

What kind of warmup routine do you have in place? 

An hour of DM (deathmatch) practice is the best warmup for me.

Is there any specific player whose demos you watch more than others? Why?

I wouldn't say I watch anyone more than others but I do try and watch players for a specific reason. If someone plays my position and they're consistently performing, I try to watch them to see what they're doing differently and how they're responding to different scenarios. 

In addition, if I've identified a weakness in my game, then I will try and watch a player who is a specialist at the aspect I'm trying to improve on and I'll see what actionable things I can implement in-game, as well as try and see what their mentality is like.

At what age do you think you'll achieve your peak performance and why?

At 30. Just look at Cristiano Ronaldo.

What's your take on CS:GO coaches? Should they have more freedom in LAN tournaments?

I think CS:GO coaches have to prep a lot for the tournament they are playing in. Mentally prepping the team and tactics are just the tip of the iceberg because of the ruling they have for LAN events now. I think it would be cool to have coaches be able to talk all the time because the dynamic of the game would switch completely and competitively. People would be able to do a lot more in the game.

You've played with many players before. Which CS:GO player did you learn the most from when playing together? What did you learn?

Playing with s1mple, electroNic, and rain. Just seeing how they are peeking angles, what they are hard-clearing or not, and what they are doing if they have been given or are giving mid-round suggestions has taught me a lot.

What would you like to change on CS:GO and why?

Make the M4s interchangeable in-game and change the AWP either by making it more expensive or changing its movement speed.

You've seen it all in the CS:GO scene. What's your advice for new and upcoming CS:GO players to reach higher tiers?

Think before you speak, be persistent and never give up, and be able to admit you make/made mistakes.

Which resolution is god tier?

1280x960 stretched.

Let’s talk about trash talking… Why do you do it?

I used to do it at local midwest LANs I would go to. Shoutout to all those people, but during that time I would do it just for the fun and competitiveness of the sport. Nowadays, everyone is really good so I only scream at people when I know the enemy messed up really, really bad.

Any last words for your fans and community?

Shoutout to all the fans for supporting me and my team throughout this journey. We only want to improve and impress people as we go along and that just comes by trying to get better day by day. #LIVEEVIL!
