SumaiL after joining Aster: "People overestimate this language stuff. And the chemistry was insanely good"


Aster's player Syed "SumaiL" Hassan shared his feelings about joining the team after their first match at DPC CN 2023 Tour 3. He explained the background of his transfer, how they draft with the language barrier, and his chemistry with BoBoKa.

It's always more fun to play on stage. We have a crowd, too, around 100 people or something. So it's actually nice to get to play in front of the audience right off the bat. It's way better than playing in a room, for sure.

SumaiL could've joined Aster during the coronavirus

During COVID-19, before TI10, there were propositions to potentially join them, but I stood in for Liquid, and then OG popped up, so it didn't happen back then. But there was this talk two years ago. And then, standing in at the Major, we kinda clicked, actually. I didn't expect it. I mean, obviously, I expected it not to be awful. People overestimate this language stuff. And the chemistry was insanely good. We just decided, why not continue?

How Aster drafts with SumaiL

Usually, Mad does drafting. I don't know if he talks with the team, but as far as I can tell, he does it on his own. I suggest my heroes most of the items and bans if I see a really good one. Also, when I see a hero perfect for my team. Otherwise, I stay quiet and let them do their stuff, which I think is pretty good, to be honest.

On his seemingly good vibes with BoBoKa

Yeah, I just talk to him. I don't even know if he understands me but it's a good relationship. He always laughs at everything, if I'm praising or flaming him, it doesn't matter, it's good chemistry.

On imbalanced changes of Patch 7.33

The new patch, I heard mixed opinions, but I really enjoyed it. Every time Dota vastly changes, I think it's good for the game. It reignites the mood for players to figure out stuff. I don't think anything is super imbalanced. Obviously, the universal heroes seem to be just better than any others. I think they're going to fix it soon, but I think it's fine. Everybody can pick them, so it's even grounds and fun.
