Team Liquid member Gabriel FalleN Toledo commented on the victory over Natus Vincere at BLAST Premier: Global Final 2020 in CS: GO. Toledo said that he could not wish for a better debut in the new team, and also separately noted the performance of Alexander s1mple Kostylev.
“It was a great match. I couldn’t have wished for a better debut. I think this episode was everything. We were beaten hard in the beginning, and it seemed that everything would go the same way on Nuke, but we got through. At some point, we ourselves felt that we would give up the victory, but the tactical pauses helped us a lot. Moses remembered a training strategy that worked great, and Jake [Stewie2k] and I came up with a couple of ideas that allowed us to take a couple of rounds.
The match was very difficult, s1mple played just fine in the second half on Nuke. Obviously, we ourselves gave him a chance to realize our mistakes, but not everyone is able to use such moments to their advantage. “
FalleN joined Team Liquid in early January. In the lineup, he replaced Russell Twistzz Van Dalken. Before that, the Brazilian represented MIBR.
Team Liquid defeated Natus Vincere with a score of 2: 0 and advanced to the semifinals of the upper bracket of BLAST Premier: Global Final 2020. In the next meeting, FalleN will compete with Team Vitality, and NAVI will compete against Complexity Gaming in the elimination match.
Brazilian player Gabriel FalleN Toledo told what fans can expect from the updated CS: GO roster of Team Liquid.
“To be honest, we didn’t have enough training time to achieve the desired level of fitness, and we understand that. But at the same time, I know that this team has great potential. I believe that from the start we are able to withstand the strongest teams, but personally I am still adapting. I hope to win, I believe in a good start. If we succeed, it will significantly raise the morale of the team, but we need to take into account the realities. We will be fighting teams that have been playing together for a long time, so we have to be realistic, but at the same time not give up hope and strive to win. “
Toledo said that Jake Stewie2k Yip remained the captain of the team, thanks to which the Brazilian can focus on his game.
“Stewie2k will continue to coordinate the team. I became his “second voice” and I think it’s cool. I can focus on my game and understand how others want to play, what they expect from me and how best to allocate players when I’m with AWP. “
