s1mple: "We want to break [Astralis' domination] and create our own era"

Aleksandr "s1mple" Kostyliev, Denis "electronic" Sharipov, and Natus Vincere's manager Yevgeniy "ugin" Yerofeyev sat down with press during a conference put together by ELEAGUE to talk about the team's recent run of good form, their play in Atlanta, and the upcoming Major.

Natus Vincere are on a streak, having won three tournaments in a row and going for the fourth in Atlanta before the player break officially kicks off. Having beaten mousesports and fnatic during the group stage, Natus Vincere will now face Liquid in the semi-finals to try and keep their streak alive.

Na'Vi became more confident after winning ESL One Cologne

During the press conference, the Natus Vincere trio formed by s1mple, electronic, and ugin talked about the team's good run, s1mple's form, playing Liquid for the first time since losing to them at ESL Pro League Finals in Dallas, the fight for the first place on the rankings, and the upcoming Major, among others.

s1mple, what does it mean to you to you to be part of one of the dominant runs in Counter-Strike history, with your recent form?

s1mple: It means a lot. First of all, we have won three tournaments in a row, which is a big achievement for any team. Now we have the chance to win a fourth title before the break. Everyone would be happy if we managed to do this.

The last time you faced Liquid was at the Pro League Finals, in Dallas, and you lost that match. What are your expectations going into this semi-final? Do you expect a different match?

s1mple: We all remember our defeat to them in Dallas. We had a worse map pool back then. Everyone knows that there are only strong teams left in this tournament and we are going to prepare for this match like we would if we had to face any other team. I do not think they are going to surprise, but it is going to be a good game.

Inferno is a map you’ve struggled on at this event, and Liquid also like playing Cache or Mirage. How do you expect the map veto to work out?

s1mple: I think it is going to be great for us. First of all, because we don’t play Cache, their strongest map, and of course we fixed our map pool after the Pro League Finals in Dallas and after ESL One Cologne. We got to practice our worst maps, so let's see what Liquid are going to pick. Either Dust2 again or maybe try Inferno because we lost it to mousesports and fnatic. We're going to go and look at what maps they've played the past three months.

Ugin: We have a team that's going to become the best team in the world, so we're now working on every map. We understand that someday we'll be able to play any map against any team, and right now we're trying to get ready for that moment.

electronic, did it take you a while to feel comfortable on Na`Vi and the spotlight that comes with it?

electronic: It took some time to understand what Na`Vi wants from me and what positions I should play. When I realized what style I should play and positions I should take, I started to practice and now I'm feeling great.

s1mple previously said that in order to become one of the top teams you had to win tournaments that FaZe and Astralis were attending. This has happened, so do you think it's important for the team to win this event to get the mental edge over Astralis heading into the player break and the Major?

s1mple: We just feel more confident after winning ESL One Cologne, a tournament which all the great teams attended. It gives us more confidence and now we know how to beat Astralis after their three-month domination. It's easier for us to play against them and other teams, now.

ugin: It's always easier to achieve the goal to become #1 than to stay #1 for a long time.

s1mple: It would be great if we beat Liquid and then get to face Astralis and win once again, because they're in really good form, in a domination era, right now, so we just want to break it and create our own era.

The confidence is there for you guys, so where do you see yourselves in the world standings compared to FaZe, Astralis, mousesports, and all of them?

s1mple: Everything is going to be clear after this tournament.

ugin: The strongest will survive.

s1mple: After this tournament, before the vacation and the Major, we're going to see the #1 team.

ugin: We will do our best to become #1 before the vacation, but as I said, the best will survive.

In the group stage you played fnatic and mousesports, both teams having recently undergone roster changes. Do you believe either team is stronger and that the teams were needed?

s1mple: I think FaZe is much stronger right now, they just need more time. They played really well before Olof took the break, they lost the Major final to Cloud9, and now they'll have time to practice before DreamHack Stockholm and the Major.

fnatic changed players and they just need more time. They had some time after ESL One Cologne and now you can see they're already playing much better together. Hopefully they will play better at the Major, because they're a very good team.

ugin: If any team makes changes, it's always a different team, and only time will show if the changes are good or bad for them. It all depends on them, now, and as s1mple says they need time to figure out what to do with these new rosters and how to move on.

s1mple: And they have that time, now.

ugin: Yes, they have the time now, but at the moment it's hard to say.

Going back to the Astralis-Na`Vi rivalry. Looking to the FACEIT Major, Astralis will have to play in the New Challenger Stage, while you're already in the Legends Stage. Do you think this will give you an advantage over the Danes, who will have to play some more matches and run the risk of being eliminated while you're already through?

s1mple: I think all of the Legends from the last tournament have an advantage because they can watch the Challengers’ games. I think all of the teams will show their cards in order to make it to the Legends Stage. I just remember last time, when we had to make it to Legends, we had to play two or three weeks in the US and it was pretty hard in the beginning because you always show something new when you play. When the Legends then come to the tournament you don't know what to expect from them and you've already shown your own game.

ugin: The other side of this is that they have a possibility to develop their game, to understand how to improve their game because they will play more matches. They will also have the advantage of seeing how they're progressing. They're developing during the tournament as they play more matches, and we're getting more knowledge about our opponent.

s1mple: And we get more time to practice.

Natus Vincere and Liquid will face off in the ELEAGUE semi-finals on Saturday at 23:00. You can follow the match live on ELEAGUE's official English stream.

13-16 16-6 13-16 yes it was a close match In last few rounds alone zeus had like four lucky sprays, which resulted in retarded double kills, kills through smokes. oh and I also forgot to mention he dropped 30 frags in regulation for the first time since 2014. electronic having the map of his life on overpass also helped. Huge overperformance.
2018-07-28 10:06

Good of you to show me nice frags by Zeus, but this proves nothing. At least it doesn't prove me that all of "that" was luck or smth. :) But the moments are nice indeed.

2:19 - default spray, where is luck? 2:48 - what is this bullshit "he didn't believe himself"? 3:11 - "self explanatory" (??????????) 3:19 - not lucky timing, just good timing 3:25 - random shot, ok legit. but what is bad in this random shot? players often trying to hit through smoke and sometimes it's success.

You clearly know nothing. 2:19 how was it a default spray? zeus didnt even see the guy, just ran and prefired him and hit a lucky shot in the head. 2:48 He didn't know where the guy was, went to spray through the smoke and the guy peeked and got in his crosshair while he was shooting. 3:11 shots like this don't happen by skill, you should know that. 3:19 That's arguable 3:25 What's bad is that we're discussing lucky shots, and that was lucky
2018-07-28 10:40
So Astralis have no wallbangs? No hits through smokes? Their spray is pure skill? But in case of Zeus he is lucky? :> #SeemsLegitAndUnbiased :>

 | 
United States ascendaNt_88 
I never said that. Zeus being lucky and having the map of his life is a simple fact, thorin.
2018-07-28 10:46
So if next time when Na`Vi will face Astralis and in case if Astralis will win I could refer to you and call any top-fragger of Astralis in this match just a lucky guy? A man who played the map of his life?
2018-07-28 10:50

United States ascendaNt_88 
If he was really lucky and he did have the map of his life, of course.
2018-07-28 13:48
1. It's not a map of his life. you must be rly newfag to think so. 2. Even if it was his map of life, what does it change? Next time it will be flamie's "map of life" or smth like you said. Or maybe gla1ve's map of life. It changes nothing, one team is better than other and this team won. 3. Again you are calling skill and preparation "luck". So pathetic... :<

I never said they were dominant i am saying only 9 matter not 20

and I said there were 20+ 100k events. what you're saying is irrelevant since Astralis haven't dominated anyway no matter how you define the events

What facts? CAC is classified as a Major tournament on Liquipedia, and we all know that means tier2-3. Hell, there was no top5 team excluding navi. Starseries also had 1 team in the top5, mouz. I don't see how that can be considered a tier1 tournament. Perhaps tier 1.5, considering that liquid was #6.

you commented under this interview so i know that you where talking about it but where , i was asking for an evidence.
2018-07-28 10:46
In that part for example when he says "we want to build own era." I believe that not going to happen, because there is 3 invidually not so good player. I havent seen anything too dominant from them. They are playing very tights game against top team. So i find it arrogant when he thinks they can build own era, because they are not going to dominant against astralis, faze etc. So thats shows no respect to them. Who was worked really hard, and found good chemistry.
2018-07-28 15:26

Brazil m16r_0 
" WE WANT TO " ... says everything , hes the best player in the world in a team that has shown how good they are they won 4 tournaments in a row so this isnt arrogant its just a goal for a player / team with high ambitions they want to reach.
2018-07-28 15:29
In my opinion it is arrogance. They havent sign anything about too dominant like astralis, and sk did. The events they have won in row contais actually one t1 events. You dont build eras in t2 events.

"we want to build own era" hahahh they have won ond t1 event this year and now everyone things that navi is best team in the world. Pls show some respect to astralis, they have wrecked so many good teams, and won lot of t1 events. And now navi won one t1 event and think they are best? With 3 invidually bots? When whole astralis team is looking strong. And i believe dev1ce will have bigger rating than s1mple. And atm electronic is more important to navi than s1mple, no one is baiting for electronic and still gets same score. That why i respect much more electronic.

Key word "want" obviously they know and we know they are not there yet and that Astralis are favorites for this time period to be their era.

Yes cause he dont want to say "wont" in interview

That doesn't make sense lol. Hes saying that hes hoping to continue their success and create their own era while acknowledging that they are clearly behind Astralis at the moment but also believing that they have the potential to be better.

2018-07-28 10:44
N1 but thats shows how humble zonic is
2018-07-28 10:54
Zonic is indeed the legend. And he has all qualities of great human being. But I think he was not lying here. S1mple changed A LOT latetly. And he keeps working on his personality and his skills which is insane!

WTF NAVI ERA , in simple dream :>> Grand final 3:0 Astralis WON
2018-07-28 16:08
DEVICE 1 mvp. 4 World rank list 11 Trophy SIMPLE 1 mvp. 2 World rank list 5 Trophy Simple is a great player, nice video and nice person, but he is overrated, the STATS dont lie, small kids lie and Dream, even other players from astralis have won more then SIMPLE, i have respekt for him and wish him the Best, but he need more stats and Trophy. ASTRALIS is the Best team in the World for now.

yes Eleague and Cologne is team effort you r right and even at this events s1mple had the best numbers and was mvp. Best Player 2018 with or without Natus Vincere. Its not like NaVi maked him the best player, he made himself the best player of the world.

Well to create an era you need to be able to beat teams like Liquid consistently.
2018-07-29 19:39
yeah and maybe stop baiting with awp and do some rifle instead
2018-07-29 19:40
ok m8 :)
2018-07-29 19:41
Where's s1mple era now?
2018-07-29 22:50
S1mple - great player but a word of advice young man. 1. Don't talk of eras - this is a game not a dynasty. 2. It looks even more foolish talking of breaking Astralis' when you do not get to the level to challenge them (ie make it to the final).
