Zeus: "As it stands, I plan to end my career in 2019"

Natus Vincere captain Danylo "Zeus" Teslenko has revealed that he plans to put an end to his gaming career sometime next year.

The Ukrainian veteran made the comment during the media day of BLAST Pro Series Lisbon, where Na`Vi finished in second place after losing to Astralis in a three-map series.

Despite being an improvement on the team's previous LAN outings, the runner-up finish in the Portuguese capital was not exactly the way that Na`Vi wanted to end a year that saw them win four international titles, only one of which during the post-break season.

Zeus is weighing up retirement

Quizzed on his goals for the new year, Zeus revealed that he wants his team to attend fewer LAN events in 2019, and admitted that he is considering the possibility of hanging up his mouse.

"As it stands, in 2019 I plan to end my career as a player, more likely towards the end of the year, maybe the middle, I'm not sure yet," he told HLTV.org.

"Next year I'm going to try to select certain tournaments that we should prioritize as a team, where we will perform and do our best to win.

"At a certain point [this year], the goal was to become number one, but we didn't manage. I think our priority will be to secure key tournaments next year, for example the Major."

Astralis' title in Lisbon was their tenth at Big Events in 2018, making them one of the most dominant teams in the history of Counter-Strike. This will force many other teams, Natus Vincere included, to reevaluate things in hopes of catching up with the Danes next year.

"They [Astralis] had a better structure and chose the right tournaments," Zeus said. "But, in general, the team is stronger collectively. They have a professional approach. This is the reason they’re number one.

"We did not do all we could to employ a professional approach to its maximum. For this reason, we remained number 2."

Na`Vi had a couple of shortcomings in 2018, most notably a group stage exit at IEM Chicago and a top-eight finish at DreamHack Masters Stockholm, but Zeus still believes that it was a mostly positive year, rating it "four out of five."

"We won four tournaments over the course of the year, we had three second places and four or five third-place finishes," he explains.

"We had three or four events that were complete failures. All in all, with a second-place finish at the Major, I would give it a four out of five."

One of the biggest talking points surrounding Natus Vincere at the moment is the long-term future of Aleksandr "s1mple" Kostyliev, after Zeus recently admitted that the 21-year-old prodigy had "many teams interested" in him.

s1mple came close to leaving the team at the start of the year together with Egor "flamie" Vasilyev as both players were courted by the MIBR team, who at the time still played under SK's banner. As 2018 is about to come to an end, Zeus says that the team's star player has yet to make a decision on his future.

"Teams have been interested in him all year," the 31-year-old said. "It's always a possibility because he's one of the best players in the world, maybe even the best.

"We will see come the end of the year. It will be his decision to make. There's a chance [that he leaves], yes."

greatest CIS CSGO player of all time is going to retire F Unfortunately this was all caused by the hate from the stat padder toxic kid’s fanbase. If it wasn’t for Zeus this kid would never be able to lose so many finals. GL on 2019 Zeus, I hope 2019 can bring a roster change to free you from all the toxicity so you can transform electronic into the beast he already is without someone taking all the credit for his amazing hard carrying, so you can retire as a champion! And last but not least: Zeus 1 major, statpad1mple 0 major

agree. as esport grows rapidly fast in the past 2 years, there are no doubts some new fans that see everything only from one side and they tend to look at some mad fraggers like s1mple and niko. and "supporting" rising or dominant teams like astralis, liquid or navi. zeus is arguably one of the best players in the cis scene and i feel sorry for him to be treated that way by those kids

I know you honestly believe this, which is hilarious because if you looked at Navi when he left you'd see just how much better the team has been with him calling shots than without. Navi were practically irrelevant as a team for a good while after he left.
2018-12-17 16:36
They didn't even give us time, that leech crawled back as soon as he could. You cannot tell how bad or good they'd be but I can surely tell Zeus is a shit player who is being a dead weight for his talented mates. He should let the youngs come in. NaVi were good without him when electronic started to adapt but he came back...
2018-12-17 16:40
He wasn't in the team for a fair amount of time and they never got off the ground. It's not rocket science to realize he helped both Gambit and Navi become better teams, but you're looking at stuff as ridiculous as personal performance when that's rarely as big a factor as people believe.
2018-12-17 17:16
It's the main factor to look at while talking about the players. And NaVi were making changes so they never really could show their actual form without him. He cheered for Gambit and he cheered for NaVi but it's the ceiling for them. They can be a lot better with some good captain who could really help them.
2018-12-18 01:05
Actually the main factor to look at is performance before, during, and after someone joins. Gambit before were okay, during won a major, after fell into Group placing obscurity and haven't recovered. Navi before he left made major finals, after he left they struggled to place out of groups, after he rejoined they were arguably the top 2/3 team in the world. So I realize you think you're right here, because of his performance, but you're just, factually, wrong. The objective fact is both teams he joined got better, it had nothing to do with "cheering" and had more to do with his ability to guide teams properly.
2018-12-18 05:15
You don't get the point, NaVi couldn't even show how good they can be without him, they were undergoing changes and new players adaption. They were good with electronic and they would be much better with a captain who could be able to frag. Like gla1ve in a #1 team. Gambit played good one tournament, it was a fluke and their own stats prove. They were shit since Zeus joined, only won DreamHack of tier 3, hit high during the Major and became shit instantly right after. He himself was playing like he always does, like a Bot, maybe slightly better. Conclusion is, he's getting carried on whatever team he plays for, certain circumstances led to success he wasn't responsible for but he remained shit throughout the whole time. He's really terrible.
2018-12-18 06:12
No, I got your point but it isn't backed by anything other than opinion. It's not factual, it's just your belief. Gambit started making playoffs directly in relation to Zeus joining. They weren't a top team, but they were a better dark horse. They went to shit after the major because he left. Navi sucked the entire time he wasn't on the roster. It's not a shock electronic suddenly improved a lot after getting some more freedom. A fragging IGL helps but they have 3 strong fraggers, a good leader and an "ok" support. Tell you what, remember this post, if Zeus leaves (and s1mple and electronic stay) the team will stop performing as well as they have been.

2018-12-16 16:32
To be fair, he has had quite the career stretching back to his 1.6 days. But I get what you mean.
2018-12-16 16:37
I still can't understand how the player who has only one strong ability to motivate the team with 'nice, cyka blyat' was able to be on the top tier level for so long time
2018-12-16 16:41
I don't think we're giving him enough credit for what he does for the team but to try and answer your question: not many Tier 1-worthy IGLs in the CIS region + team loyalty (Zeus and NaVi have been synonymous since 1.6 days.)

Well he motivated Gambit, a T4 team now to win a major.
2018-12-16 21:38
Adren, Hobbit, Dosia and mou are t1-2 players, they received some leader finally
2018-12-16 21:43
Zeus left Navi, and they dramatically declined. He joined Gambit and they steadily improved, ending with a major win. He left Gambit, who have since become mediocre, and rejoined Navi and helped them become a solid team again. Like it's not some strange coincidence that he's gotten to a bunch of Major finals. He's clearly a decent leader, regardless of what anyone here thinks. Dude has led some of the most successful teams in 2 versions of cs, only really TaZ/Neo and Gtr/f0rest(and they didn't lead) are equivalent to the Zeus/Edward pairing in this respect.
2018-12-16 22:04
He is a good motivator and leader, sure, but his intelligence and skills are sooo bad
2018-12-16 22:07
But his intelligence still much better than you
2018-12-16 22:42
Yeah, indeed, having a Master's degree of top university and working in a multinational company is < IQ than making 5 mistakes in 1 word from Zeus.
2018-12-17 12:56
Be careful from your word bro
2018-12-17 13:12
His skills are irrelevant as a player, since his team is making finals. People look at the exterior, superficial aspects of his play to critique him, but the facts remain the same: teams he's led have always sat near the top level. It's not something you can dispute, he has led Navi and Gambit into world class teams and without his leadership both teams faltered. I will take a player performing below average, but helping the team succeed over extra firepower any day. How people still can't figure this out is beyond me, the examples of this have been in nearly every top team since the start.
2018-12-17 00:11
I want to see a good playing IGL, not a bot-motivator. This is the reason Navi are not the best team, and Astralis are
2018-12-17 12:57
Glaive is a good playing IGL but that is hardly the reason Astralis are the top team.
2018-12-17 16:30
Maybe it really is? gla1ve and Magisk were the last pieces of a puzzle
2018-12-17 18:03
Magisk was the biggest part of the puzzle, but it's more their immaculate team play and smart utility rather than single player performances.

s1mple 100% to FaZe. But I think in FaZe he will be worse than in Na'Vi. Goor luck anyway.
2018-12-16 15:41
I mean I see where you get that from. FaZe has been in a gradual slump throughout 2018 and they are below Na'Vi in the rankings. But here's the thing: Na'Vi is only top 2-3 because of s1mple. Na'Vi core alone is barely t2 (electronic is not enough to carry them). FaZe's core is conciderably stronger and with s1mple stepping in karrigan's place we could have a devil firepower mix on our hands. Yes, NiKo is a poor IGL, but overall I can't see FaZe with s1mple being worse than Na'Vi, unless s1mple suddenly starts being lazy or GuardiaN starts throwing again.
2018-12-16 16:28
But you can't expect a team of five superstars to be good. If you put Messi, Ronaldo, Pogba, Griezmann, Pepe and so on in one team they will achieve nothing.

So many lowlifes commenting. It's a living legend weighting up retirement. I would rate Zeus top 3 all time IGLs, together with gob b and pronax. I will seriously shed a tear the day he announces retirement.
2018-12-16 15:45
gob b???? are you high or what? he is not even top-10 IGL
2018-12-16 16:03
It seems like you're the high one.
2018-12-16 16:18
But there are so many other candidates I would place before gob b though: FalleN, gla1ve, karrigan, Ex6tenz, TaZ.....and those are just a few. gob b? Nah. He's good but not Top 3 good.
2018-12-16 16:41

>"They [Astralis] had a better structure and chose the right tournaments," Zeus said. "But, in general, the team is stronger collectively. They have a professional approach. This is the reason they’re number one. Finally someone said it. So many players are stupid manchildren sitting on their fat asses to get paid to play this game for a living but they don't take it nearly as serious enough, "buhu I don't wanna play with this player," "if he joins I leave," "we didn't practice for this event," "we've been lazy" etc. Whereas Astralis are taking the correct approach, be a professional, prepare for every match/tournament and play to win.

Well, Zeus has won all the titles he could possibly win which includes a major in GO and eeverything in1.6, so he has definately achieved it all, sadly just couldnt repeat the success of winning another major for NaVi in GO, but its okay. If maybe it works out for him in 2019 then im happy, otherwise im sure he’ll be wanted as a coach as well as he is a media face, so gaming industry advertisers might use his free time to their and zeus’s benefit and he’d still be able to make big bucks out of gaming industry after his retirement. He should be proud of what hes achived throghout the competitive years. Hes got everything: money, fame, his own projects such as lets say pro100, so he’s got things to concetrate on. Would be interesting to see what happens next for him, the team (navi), the players. Thank you and good luck! You rock! :))

So much hate for this man. You can see how childrish and young hltv users are. The man who did amazing job and recognize and made na'vi great in 1.6. To made lineup which was unbeatable for 2 years to dominant CS scene with teams as fnatic, SK, fragexecutors. To give scene big team as was natus. Big lost to cs scene when all those retire sometimes. Like f0rp, neo, gtr, taz. Sorry for bad englando. Respect for all those old players from 1.6 and source

People that understand CS, ignore the idiotic comments who are mostly based on stats. They forget how fucking dogshit Na`Vi was before Zeus came back and it will happen again. If Zeus was to retire, who the fuck replaces him? Ange1 might be good, but if he's literally the only option, you're fucked either way.

Astralis are most professional team yes, they approach this game like no one else yes, bit they also dedicate many hours of practing together as much as they do alone individually. Being an igl is a tough task but that doesnt mean your only purpose is to call in-game and sit back and wait for simple and electronic to multifrag and hard carry your ass to superiority. That wont happen when 1 or 2 players in the team failing to do their part and commiting way to many mistakes. Glav1e has has his way and his influence to this team is impact full. Fallen is the second igl to ever deliver frags as many calls in game. Or he used to be.

Na`Vi's results are 3x better than Liquid\s. Being a "cryptonite" is not enough to be better than team who won more and have better places on wordl-class tournaments. Na`Vi >>>>>>>>>>>> Liquid (by results of 2018) Liquid > Na`Vi (personal meetings) You can be tier2-3 team, but cryptonite of top1 team, but you won't take 2nd place just because of that. Same logic is here.

greatest CIS CSGO player of all time is going to retire F Unfortunately this was all caused by the hate from the stat padder toxic kid’s fanbase. If it wasn’t for Zeus this kid would never be able to lose so many finals. GL on 2019 Zeus, I hope 2019 can bring a roster change to free you from all the toxicity so you can transform electronic into the beast he already is without someone taking all the credit for his amazing hard carrying, so you can retire as a champion! And last but not least: Zeus 1 major, s1mple 0 major

he joined navi again not because of the money. he founded that team and spent nearly 10 years in it. gambit kicked his best friend for no reason and then you got an offer from navi. why would you not take that?
2018-12-18 00:48
He founded that team, and got kick from it, have some honor and don't go back to the team that kicked u when u are in a team wich won a major with ur command, gambit had the pottential to win more tournaments, but not without a good igl.
2018-12-18 17:01
Who cares, can't even win me 5 vs 1
2018-12-18 02:58
What a comments ... probably from fucking 12 yo kids who do not know who is Zeus. Zeus won everything in CS 1.6, he won a fucking major. Probably the greatest IGL in CS history. Fucking kids, you are dreaming for CS career like zeus, but you will never have it. And by the way if he plays against you competitive or 1v1, trust me, you would be absolutely destroyed.
2018-12-18 05:59
"was" Its in the past, hes just stealing paychecks now.

All teams are talking about ASTRALIS, even those who hate ASTRALIS because their team plays as nooobs against ASTRALIS ,,,,,, It just says that ASTRALIS is the best in the world before there is no one who likes to talk about bad teams, ASTRALIS never speaks about other teams ,,, it also says they are the KINGS.
