September 14, we have announced the new Windigo Gaming addition in the person of о 22-year-old Sabit "mirbit" Coktasar — he becomes the 5th player. Today we decided to touch base with him and to ask about getting a team, his personal goals, tournaments and communications.
— Hello! Please, tell us how have you made it to get into Windigo Gaming?
— The CEO, Maksym Bednarskyi, has contacted me via mail and asked if I wanted to join the team on a trial basis.
— What have you heard about us earlier? What made you accept the proposal?
— Windigo Gaming is very strong and truly upcoming team this year. After talking to the coach of Windigo Gaming, Shockwave, and their IGL, bubble, I was quite certain that I can contribute a lot to this team.
— What are the nearest tournaments for Windigo Gaming updated roster?
— Now we are playing the European Champions Cup and OGA Counter PIT Season 6. A new SECTOR: MOSTBET tournament is already about to start. However, our focus is ESL Pro League Season 10: Europe, which starts the next month.
— What are your personal goals within this team?
— I believe we can become a top contender, if we work hard enough.
— Tell us about the communication in the team. Is it difficult for you to communicate during and outside the game if each player isn’t a native English speaker?
— Obviously it isn’t perfect when it comes to communication right now, but over time it will only get better.
— Describe each of your teammates and the coach in one sentence or a few words. With whom cooperation is the “easiest” for you, and with whom is it “harder”?
— Shockwave: hardworking and funny guy. Bubble: calm and good IGL. HAdji: smart and overall great player. Calyx: shy, but very skilled. Poizon: quiet, but very strong awper.
— And what about the team leader? What were the features of working with the captain in your previous teams and which ones can you note in Windigo Gaming?
— Since I was playing in German teams before, most of the IGLs preferred slow and structured style. In this lineup it’s a learning process for everyone, so we can find the perfect mixture of slow and explosive game play.
— The best tournament operator?
— The best tournament?
— ESL One Cologne.
— The best professional player thus far?
— The best professional team presently?
— Your favorite map?
— I like all the maps in the competitive map pool.
— Your favorite device?

— What would you like to change in CS:GO?
— First bullet accuracy, M4A1-S buff, TEC-9 buff, SG nerf and make all the unused weapons viable.
— What makes you mad in CS:GO?
— When I’m playing pugs vs "worse" players and lose.
— To rise the amount of majors and their prize pool or to make special The International?
— I like the way tournaments are working so far.
