The captain of Virtus.pro CS: GO roster Jami Jame Ali said after defeating Natus Vincere in the group stage of IEM New York 2020 Online that his team had not prepared only one map – Nuke. In an interview with the Russian-language analytics studio, he also noted that he expected NAVI to choose Train instead of Overpass.
“I hoped that we could win. We were ready to play any card except Nuke. We thought NAVI would pick Train. Basically, we knew for sure that they would not take Inferno. And then any card could have been. “
Jame also emphasized that on Inferno, VP’s attack was dependent on the situation on the banana.
“It was our plan to play from” banana “on Inferno, at least random. We read some of the things they did. But everything from the “banana” was built, without exchanging for the “banana” we seemed to be doing nothing. Therefore, the “banana” was used to determine which is the best way out, but it’s hard to read the constrictions anyway. Sometimes you had to take 50/50. ”
The match between Natus Vincere and Virtus.pro at IEM New York 2020 took place on October 17. VP won with a score of 2: 0 and became the sole leader of Group A with nine points.
