Virtus.pro player Marek YEKINDAR Galinskis spoke about the current form of the team. After defeating Ninjas in Pajamas at IEM Katowice 2021 CS: GO, he also commented on the team’s past defeats.
Previously, Virtus.pro lost to NiP in the Play-In stage, but beat Renegades and made it to the group stage. The YEKINDAR team met with the Swedish team again after being defeated by Natus Vincere.
“We wanted to win, we knew we could. In Play-In, we lost to Ninjas in Pajamas and wanted to prove to ourselves that we were stronger than them, and everything worked out. I am glad that we made it to the next match. “
In both lost meetings at IEM Katowice 2021, the CIS team lost on Dust2. In the rematch against NiP, the team did not take this map.
“We are comfortable playing Dust2. We’ve already talked about defeats to NAVI and NiP, so it’s not that important for us anymore. Probably, the team got a little tired of this map, they needed variety, so we took Inferno. “
According to YEKINDAR, at the end of last year Virtus.pro was in good shape, but now the team is not having the best period:
“After winning Flashpoint and until the end of last year, we were very strong. The team played a lot in official and training matches. But we lost our shape a little and now we are trying to get it back. Now we can lose some stupid round, but in time everything will work out. “
