Virtus.pro CS: GO roster Marek YEKINDAR Galinskis predicted the success of the CIS teams in 2021. On the HLTV Confirmed podcast, he also spoke about the goals of his roster.
According to YEKINDAR, the backbone of Virtus.pro has already played in the Major final, so now the main task is to pick up the trophy of the next tournament from Valve:
“They were teammates who lost in the Major final, what do you think they want? They want to be the winners, go to the next major and win it. They don’t want to be second or just be in the top 30. They don’t need it, they want to be stronger. “
YEKINDAR noted that in 2020 several teams from the CIS have become stronger at once. In his opinion, in 2021, the region in the top 10 of the rating will be represented not only by Natus Vincere and VP.
“In 2020, teams from the CIS have become much stronger. Gambit has grown from a small-tournament farming team to a top 15 squad. Spirit – an already strong team – changed something and became even more powerful. Considering that we have climbed to the top 6 and won several tournaments, I think that by the end of the year there will be four teams from the CIS in the top ten ”.
On February 1, Virtus.pro moved up to sixth place in the HLTV rating.
