FalleN: "coldzera was calling in OT"

After Luminosity defeated Natus Vincere 2-0 to win the MLG Columbus Major, HLTV.org sat down with team leader and team elder Gabriel 'FalleN' Toledo to talk about the tournament and about the team.

Luminosity made history by becoming the first non-European team to win a Major, doing so at their first Major finals and at the first $1 million Major. The team defeated Natus Vincere 2-0 in a thrilling grand final that saw far more than a million viewers tune in.

With this Major win also being Gabriel "⁠FalleN⁠" Toledo's first international trophy in CS:GO, we sat down with the Brazilian team's leader to talk about a wide variety of topics.

You will be able to find all of our past interviews from the Major, as well as highlight videos, at our YouTube channel which can be found here.

this was their best chance for a major and they picked overpass vs LG...
2016-04-04 03:11
True.. Pretty bad decision
2016-04-04 11:06
Fuck me even Cobblestone would've been a better pick... That's the same thing G2 did when they picked Train vs VP and got plowed.

2016-04-04 01:07
Yeah especially with no calling experience in the most need intense rounds of the game. if they lose that round or map they lose the finals... makes some wonderful circumstances to start calling when your team doesnt know you cheat... gyazo.com/acaf4a9f5d303b6f0c052f26491cab..

We need to be honest here, if FNATIC beat Astralis, LG would not have won the final? Just FNATIC Chocked, but I'm glad LG won.

Anyone can win anyone, your statement is invalid. It would of been a closer affair this time but FNATIC would of won.
2016-04-04 02:21
How the hell can you afirm that man?
2016-04-04 02:48
lol, answer an "invalid" statement with a "they would win" which is completely invalid as well.
2016-04-06 15:48
Fnatic did not advance in the playoffs so we can't say 'OH BUT IF FNATIC WERE HERE IT WOULD BE DIFFERENT!' guess what? they got eliminated and that's how tournaments work, and YES that can happen at any time so it's stupid to start to make theorys about other teams advancing or not. LG WON AND THAT'S IT! DEAL WITH IT!
2016-04-04 04:14
I'm not trying to insult the guy, but this is a bad interviewer. I'm a shy person, aswell, but this made me cringe. Try at least to appear more confident. Thanks for the content anyway.

that's stich and he's great.
2016-04-04 02:09
He may be great at other stuff, as I don't know him or his work, but he needs to work more on how he presents himself on camera. That is a fact.
2016-04-04 02:11
he is just being humble, he is used to interviewing. and it's about fallen, not the interviewer.
2016-04-04 02:14
+1 not the first time someone has said this and I've only seen him brush it off and not really change up anything. there really is so much potential here and he needs to mix it up or get someone else. i do not enjoy these at all.

I like how only Brazilian people have ever acted like it was the countries achievement not the players.. don't ever remember Sweden or France players be like "GZ TO US", almost feels like real sports where people claim "our team won" not the players.
2016-04-04 07:48
Because compared to the rest of the CS playing nations, Brazil was not expected to win. Not even the commentators wanted LG to win. When it's that blatant and the opposite happens, the reaction needs to refute the blanket statements and stereotypes. That's what happened.

I doubt "that" many people didn't expect LG to win, perhaps the commentators didn't want too but I was fully expecting them to win this Major, LG always comes alive during turnies and is easily the dark horse that can take any team out.

2016-04-04 15:17
Have you seen the clip with the jumping famas HS by fnx in the final? (Edward not die, but he was tagged heavily, however, down to 42 hp or something).. So many fishy clips of LG has spawned during the MLG tournament, and I find it hard to believe they can be so lucky so many times during the same tournament. I know they are pros, but I haven't seen this level of luck/fluke/etc during the 13 years I have followed the scene. Anyway, it doesn't matter. A clip will never stamp somone as a cheater unless he is using straightforward aimbot or wallhack/esp/xray on an event computer. Nowadays cheats have become so sophisticated its hard to tell someone is even cheating.
