The folks at BLAST Premier took Danny 'zonic' Sørensen down for a little ride down memory lane. BLAST Premier talent Mohan 'launders' Govindasamy and Head Coach of Astralis, Danny 'zonic' Sørensen, went through the second map of the Grand Final at BLAST Pro Series Bahrain versus Team Liquid for analysis and insight. A battle that took place on de_nuke and crowned Astralis as the Global Final Champions, the last grande title of 2019.

Danny 'zonic' Sørensen, Head Coach, Astralis:

- When we attend a tournament we know there are around 15 other teams who want to win as much as we do. For us to gain any confidence it comes down to getting our preparations right, making sure you know everything about your opponent and making sure our tactics work.

- That's what we do in order to gain that confidence. Besides that, it's important to just take the game one round at a time. We know from experience that we can always come back. Always have this faith in yourself and the way you play Counter-Strike. I think that's really important. 

Danny 'zonic' Sørensen, Head Coach, Astralis:

- I can't go too much into detail about how we do stuff but I'm really satisfied as a coach to have five players that are so involved in our daily lives. Players that practice, take notes and come up with ideas for our games. 

- On most teams, I think it's just a couple of guys who watches demos and comes up with new stuff. For us, everyone contributing to the tactical side as well as a general factor.
