Alexander s1mple Kostylev, sniper and captain of the Natus Vincere CS: GO roster, commented on the defeat to Team Vitality at BLAST Premier: Fall 2020. He explained why the team did not retain the advantage on Dust2, and noted that the team still has chances in the tournament.
In the telegram channel s1mple noted several mistakes made on Nuke, and was also upset that the team lost on Dust2, although they were leading:
“Dust2 – hammer it. 8: 1 led, then …. I say, as if not we are leading with such an account, but as if we are losing: we begin to withdraw into ourselves and play not our own game. This is usually the case. ”
The Ukrainian esportsman tuned in for the following matches and urged fans not to lose heart:
“There is no time to get upset. We need to pull ourselves together, we still have many games ahead of us. We need to make a reset, focus and demonstrate what we can do. ”
NAVI lost 0: 2 to Vitality (15:19 on Nuke and 17:19 on Dust2) and fell into the lower bracket of the playoffs. In the next match, the team from the CIS will compete with FURIA Esports.
