Denis "electroNic" Sharipov got his top-7 place in the best CS:GO players of 2021 by HLTV.org. In the interview the player mentioned that his shaky performance in the beginning of 2021 happened because the team was trying out new tactics that he needed time to adjust to.
Next, he said that the addition of Valeriy "b1t" Vlakhovski truly refreshed to the roster mid-season, and that's why they've been winning every tournament from then on. The player also restated his main goal for the future:
The best player of 2021 will be revealed in a special ceremony on January 22, together with #2 and #3 players.
