Meet the Esports Psychologist Who Led Astralis to a 'Counter-Strike' Championship – No Playing Field



Astralis is undoubtedly one of the best ‘Counter-Strike: Global Offensive’ teams on the planet, but they have one fatal flaw: choking in high-pressure situations and throwing away chances to be crowned CS:GO champions. In an effort to change their luck, the team hired a sports psychologist, and finally reeled in the Major tournament win that had eluded them.

‘No Playing Field’ is a series by Mashable following the behind-the-scenes of the ever-growing world of esports. From huge investment opportunities, to secret team tactics, to obsessed fans, the series gives deep insights on how esports came to be, its current challenges and where it’s heading next.

    Yes, all the credit goes to her not their hard work and experience from years of counterstrike. She helped, she didn't lead.

    They win because their team is framed by media, mentally unstable team, they just suck, if I had the money I would be at top 10 in less than 2 months.

    OG won TI8 last year. Then they won TI9 this year. And I don't know how impactful she was during the TI9 for OG. But hey, Astralis had the same Psychologist after all.

    If she's a pro psychologist, and just part of the team, why is she wearing makeup, jewelry, fashiobale hair, and other extra sexual availability signals? Plenty of women go without all al that, especially at work on tough jobs.
    Seems unprofessional. Unless she has a hidden agenda, hoping to hook up with some of that big eSports tournament money through her feminine wiles.
