tarik: "I don't really care who we play because I know we are going to win the Major no matter what"

We caught up with a confident Tarik "tarik" Celik following NRG's victory over Natus Vincere and heard about how they managed to pick up victories on Dust2 and Mirage and advance to the semi-final.

NRG continued their strong run in Berlin by defeating Natus Vincere in the quarter-final of the StarLadder Major Berlin. Dust2 kicked off the series, the North Americans were in the lead for the majority of the game and managed to fend off a comeback attempt. On Mirage, NRG was the team doing the T side comeback, completing it after overtime.

NRG are in the semi-final of the Major

In our interview with tarik, we heard about his ace on Dust2, targeting the B bombsite on Mirage, and what this win means for NRG. To close out the interview, the American player compared his current team to the Major-winning Cloud9, and stated that he would be claiming the Major title in Berlin.

Starting with Dust2, it was quite interesting that s1mple wasn't AWPing that much, in the first half at least, and you started off the game pretty well. So how did it feel early in the game, especially with s1mple not AWPing, did you even notice it?

In the first half, we started off T side and Dust2 is a little bit T side favored. So I think that going into the match we were feeling really confident because Dust2 is one of our really strong maps, and we were also really confident because just before the game we were feeling really good. Looking at s1mple, I don't think it was anything we really noticed, off the top of our heads, but maybe it hurt them in the end. Because he started AWPing later in the half and that is maybe when they started to get more rounds. But overall it was just a good start to the game, we had a 10-5 lead and yeah, we did well.

Did you feel that Na`Vi weren't prepared for what you were bringing? Did you feel that you were outsmarting them? There were some interesting mid-round calls from your team.

In terms of the map pick, I think they were totally prepared for it, but in terms of during the game and during mid-round situations, I think we had a lot of great calls and sometimes they were actually set up for it, there was a couple of time where they were playing the bombsite that we were hitting with three or four people, they were stacked, but our executions were flawless and we were going into the sites feeling very confident, doing it together, at the same time. Sometimes, even if the other teams stacks there, if you hit the site correctly, you can still take it. So it was just well played by us on the T side and a proper execution overall.

The ace that you got on B, how did you manage to control the Famas spray on such a big distance to get the last kill? Were you surprised yourself that you got it?

I didn't even know that it was an ace, only now that you are telling me. After I got those two guys I already knew, immediately, that they were going to try to save, so I got the Famas in my hands, I heard the first guy running and I peeked them right away. At that point, I just went for the sky (chuckles), I tried my best to control it and it is just muscle memory at that point, it is nothing you can really practice in my opinion, it is just controlling it depending on how it feels and what direction it is going. It was pretty sick, yeah.

Offtopic question, but do you actually practice the Famas, ever?

The Famas is probably one of the guns I use the least. I use the MP9 probably more than the Famas, but in my opinion, it is actually a viable gun, I think it should be used more. But yeah, maybe I'll bring it into the game more after that spray.

Going into the second map, Mirage, Na`Vi had a pretty good start on the T side. What was the deal with their T side, why couldn't you stop it on Mirage?

I think we had a slow start, we won a force buy against them and then it was 3-1 and we lost the next gun round and were broke. I think the game spiraled out of control in their favor and it ended up being 3-8. Then we finally got the double AWP going and I think that is when we started to sort of bring it back. And then eventually it was 8-6 and the last round was the 1v1 versus electronic. It was still a good comeback for us to close it 9-6 and that is not a bad half going into the T side, especially if you win pistol.

At match point, 15-13, you did two force buys which was an interesting decision. Can you tell me why you decided to force and not maybe save for the last round?

We had a good plan for 15-13 to do a B pop because we noticed they were stacking towards A a lot and also just because Zeus plays B, we wanted to, sort of, abuse that. I think it was actually good, I should've gotten the kill on him and we should've opened up the site, but I got kind of unlucky with my movement. But I think it was a good call because we got two chances and even if we did save there it wouldn't have been a crazy good buy in the last round so, in my opinion, it was the right play to make.

Looking at NRG in the past, getting to playoffs was something they always did, but sometimes in these big games, things didn't go so well. Do you think that this win is one of those big games that changes the team and the perception of the team from the outside?

This is a big game for us to win, definitely, and it says a lot about us. But in my opinion, I can just feel that we are a different team now and things are flowing much better. I think that people are going to start to realize that you have to start to show us respect, that we are not going to come into games and get thrown around. We are a new team now, we've been practicing really hard and I'm really confident in these guys, I think we have a lot of potential in terms of the roster we have and once things are clicking the way they are it is going to be very scary for the whole scene.

You won the Major with Cloud9, is this NRG team better than that Cloud9 team?

I don't know, I think that we are better than before because I think that on Cloud9 we were a little bit inconsistent. Also, with me calling, I don't... I don't know, I think we were good on Cloud9 so it is hard to say. I think that if we kept going with Cloud9 we could've still been a great team, but it is what it is and here we are now. I think that I'm happy with my team and I think we are going to do great things with this roster and that is all that matters.

Astralis and Liquid are on your side of the bracket, AVANGAR or Renegades will be in the grand final. What do you expect moving forward?

To be honest, for the next matchups, I don't really care who we play because I know we are going to win the Major no matter what.

I'm a professional violinist who has played in many competitions. Don't want to say it's exactly the same but it gets close. You don't have to put yourself down or anything but you should stay reasonable. "I believe my team will win this major" would've been confident but not cocky for example.

Tarik thinking content so he baits out everybody
2019-09-06 23:30
Well if there's a moment for NRG to win a major, it's certainly this one. Sure they have Astralis in semis to go through, which is not very likely, but the grand final is wide open for them doesn't matter if it's Avangar or Renegades, both teams are perfectly beatable for NRG I think. But "no matter what" feels like a bit of overconfidence.
2019-09-06 23:31
i don't think it's a confidence thing, to me it sounds more like one of those "make your dreams come true" cliches. as in he's convincing himself and the team that they are capable of doing it. notice that tarik is also very loud when they play so to me it looks like he's trying to be the morale guy. let's get real, nobody really expects nrg to win the whole thing. most people probably think the 2-0 against astralis the first time around was a fluke and the winner of liquid-astralis will win the whole thing. "we are gonna try our best" isn't how you instill confidence, believing you are going to succeed is the way to go.
2019-09-07 00:17
Yeah I can't really claim to know whether he actually IS overconfident, it's just what the words make me think about when I read them. But it could indeed be just a way for him to motivate himself and his team, that's true.

He got no class, why would u call out a fellow pro player, when that force buy was the most stupid call of entire major. 0 brain, astralis outplaying them tomorrow and he can cry a fucking river.
2019-09-06 23:47
is having class involves lying? if anything he tried to describe it as politely as he could. it's not like it's a secret either. teams have been abusing navi's B on mirage for years now, specifically because zeus can't hold half of the time. it got to a point where navi would often gamble stack 3 players B to try to jebait teams with zeus. but yeah, the force was 20 iq and astralis are likely to win the whole thing anyways.
2019-09-07 00:33
It's fair they abuse zeuz, just dont say it, we all know it. - he tried to defend the worst force buy in major history by going at another player who is already laying down. That's bad manners my friend. You just go: "Yes, that force buy was maybe not the best decision, we wanted to end the game quick. Didnt happen." And you dont sound like a dick What lying? No need to lying?
2019-09-07 00:39
i mean you are probably right that's it's more polite and definitely smarter PR wise, but it really bothers me that one has to lie so that they don't accidentally hurt someone else's feelings (provided zeus is definitely not the kind of guy to get hurt by a random NA player calling him out) and that should be somehow considered classy. he wasn't asked whether the force was good or bad (it was obviously a 20 iq idea), he was asked why they did it in the first place. should he really have to dodge to look good? it's not like he said anything terrible or insulting about zeus either.
2019-09-07 00:44
Why you did it? : "we wanted to end the game right there and right then, they stacked A often and we have felt comfortable on B hits thru out the game" that's not a lie. He even states it was a good call. Which it was clearly not And he states they are 100% gonna win major. His a joke, just like stewie.
2019-09-07 01:00
random na player? you act like tarik hasnt won just as much as zues including a major.... but w/e
2019-09-07 06:25
aside from it being an obvious hyperbole, from zeus's pov he is pretty much a random na player. how long has tarik played professionally for, 5 years or so? zeus started playing professionally when tarik was 8 years old. let that sink in for a moment. the dude has won a major before tarik was even attending highschool. that is not to say that tarik is a no name or something. he has been known to be a solid all-rounder even before he won the major, but it's not like he's been ever a contender for the best na player or even a top5 na player. tarik's career and achievements look minuscule in comparison to zeus's, similarly to many other good csgo players who are currently much better than zeus. that's all beside the point which is that zeus couldn't care less about what tarik thinks of him.

Big words from peanut brain himself, we'll see tommorow when your most likely going home. Sure Nrg can upset but i think Astralis have to much experience to let this one slip.
2019-09-07 00:00
High chances tho
2019-09-07 00:02
Let's hope he doesn't win just for the lols. Also insane confidence from him!

2019-09-07 00:24
They're well underways atl
2019-09-07 00:25
nd then eventually it was 8-6 and the last round was the 1v1 versus electronic. It was still a good comeback for us to close it 9-6 and that is not a bad half going into the T side, especially if you win pistol.@ its wasnt 6-9 half its was 5-10 half

Love the confidence with Tarik - The content King is right! They will win the Major no matter who they play against. No one comes this far just to lose. Astralis will put a good fight but NRG will be unpredictable this time.

Love NRG, specially Cerq, but if Astralis does a solid match like the two maps we saw today, they are impossible to defeat. Their executions and tactics are one step further than the rest.

Big talk coming from peanut brain.

2019-09-07 03:22
NRG should have won more convincingly, they're a much better team. Instead, they threw away a couple of rounds and made the game close. I bet the Danes will punish them for every mistake. As for Na'vi, it's bizarre, how they manage to squander such a big potential of star players.

I appreciate way more players to speak their minds with all honesty and having rivalries left and right ( not just behind the scenes ) and make thing spicy between teams or even players that this stupid "good guys " PR all the time. Way to go for Tarik and i hope for more cockiness and blunt honesty in the future from other players or teams as well.

He doesn't truly believe that they are going to win %100 but he has confidence and tries to motivate himself and teammates. or They've panicked and scared of Astralis but they try to look cool and scare Astralis. or Tarik is really a dumb boi thinks that they are going to win no matter what.
2019-09-07 11:24
that arrogance will make them fail gz astralis
2019-09-07 11:29
Not means arrogance, it all means being focused and mind-set stronger believing fully they are capable of and that’s is the key in life. He isn’t saying Astralis is bad it’s just confidence. Every team do the same and i think NRG has a really big potential to win this major. Let’s see in the next hours...
