Andrey B1ad3 Gorodenskiy named Alexander s1mple Kostylev the best player in CS: GO. At the same time, coach Natus Vincere noted that his team cannot yet be considered the strongest. He spoke about this in a comment for ESPN.
Gorodensky believes that NAVI needs to break the Astralis record for major victories in order to earn the title of the best team in the world. He added that the composition needs to work on stability in order to show high results in each championship.
“To become the best team in the world, you need to break the Astralis record. This team won three majors in a row. Each team wants to beat this result, so we are ready to work hard. At IEM Katowice 2020 we were on top, we caught the right wave. But in another tournament, everything can be different – the team’s mood will change, and it will play differently. Other formulations can also become stronger. At the next championship, everyone will not care how the previous one ended – everyone will focus on the current competition. Today we won, but we need to work on stability in order to become the best in the world. ”
B1ad3 stated that he always considered s1mple the best player in the world. He added that Kostylev could get this title last year if he achieved better results with NAVI.
“In my opinion, s1mple was the best player last year, but due to frequent changes in the roster, he could not achieve more with the team. For me, s1mple has always been and remains the best player in the world. The way he plays and what moments he creates during matches is something unbelievable. Many say that s1mple is the best player who has ever logged into CS, and I agree with them. ”
Natus Vincere became the champions of IEM Katowice 2020, which took place from February 24 to March 1 in Poland. In the final, a team from the CIS beat G2 Esports with a score of 3: 0 and earned $ 250 thousand.
