qikert: "I'm so happy that I didn't join Na`Vi when they invited me; I believed in my friends and made the right choice"

We spoke with Alexey "qikert" Golubev to hear about AVANGAR's victory over Renegades, their path to this point and qikert's decision to turn down Natus Vincere.

The team from Kazakhstan continued their run at the Berlin Major, and after defeating Vitality in the quarter-finals, 2-0'd Renegades in the semi-finals. The series started on Mirage, where AVANGAR mustered an overtime victory, following that up with a dominant performance on Dust2.

qikert decided to decline the big offer and stick with the team from Kazakhstan

We talked to qikert shortly after he stepped off of the stage in the Mercedes-Benz Arena and heard about keeping composure in a tough match, his individual form, and the decision to turn down Natus Vincere and stay in AVANGAR.

You just beat Renegades and moved into the grand final of the Major. Coming into it, obviously, no-one would've expected you in the final, so what is the feeling like right now?

It feels like a dream, I wasn't ready for this, I didn't expect such a cool result and I still have literally no words. But I'm happy with our performance, we did great, we did good with preparation, we did well on the stage. We were playing on Mirage, they were leading 15-13, but nobody gave up. I think that helped us win matches. We never give up. And I'm feeling really amazing because my team never gives up.

What do you think was the key point in the history of this team that allowed you to get to this point? What were the key roster changes or decisions that you made as a team to get to this point?

I don't know, we were just becoming stronger and stronger after every opponent. I think that after the win over Syman in the New Challengers Stage we became more confident, we believed in ourselves that we have to do it, we have to show ourselves on the New Legends Stage and now we are here, in the final. It feels amazing, I'm so shocked still.

Talking about the Renegades game, you started CT and they have a thing that they do quite often, boosting AZR mid and just overwhelming mid pretty fast. What was the game plan, how did you cope with that?

Mirage, as I said, we started really shaky, we weren't playing our game because we were a little bit stressed, but after some rounds we got used to the game, got used to the crowd, got used to the huge pressure and we just showed what we are made off with a great comeback.

Mentality was key to defeating Renegades, qikert says

Do you think you dealt with the pressure better than Renegades? Because even when they were winning all of the clutches, you still managed to stay on top?

I think we are one of the best teams in terms of our mentality because we were losing such rounds that 90% of the teams would already give up, but we didn't. It is so cool, I'm so proud of my team because of this. On Dust2 we had a really bad start but again, magic happened and we started grabbing round by round and it provided us the victory. Amazing rounds, amazing calls, even though every time we were losing the entry, I don't know how, but we were winning rounds 4v5 every time. I don't know how it happened, but I think that at that point Renegades got stressed because they lost like five 5v4 rounds. I think this just tilted them and destroyed them mentally.

What is the key to your individual form? Because you have been playing pretty well, especially in this last series. Is there anything special you are doing before these playoff games?

I don't know, I have been playing so badly since the first day of this Major and I thought "Where is my individual form?". I was shocked we got to this stage with me playing this way, like "I'm playing so badly and we are still winning". I was so proud of my team because they are carrying me.

Yesterday, before going to sleep, I thought I had to carry this game, it was now or never. My teammates' performance inspired me and I thought that it was now my time to win them the game. But I didn't win this game, my team won this game. It is a team game as I said before on Twitter and I'm so happy.

What was the meaning behind the "It is a team game" Tweet, can you explain it a bit more?

Sometimes, community, players, and other teams are focusing on one player like ZywOo, Jame, even me, but they don't see great players like buster, great players like SANJI. They are not focusing on them because they are not having good numbers on the scoreboard. And it annoys me, because even our bosses, our management, our CEO, before thought about the statistics [too much]. They were looking at CR4ZY's games and saying "Oh, huNter, such a nice rating. EspiranTo, oh, such an amazing team!". And they once asked us how we managed to win against them. So even our CEO and our bosses were underestimating us and it made us really mad, really angry, we wanted to prove everyone that it is a team game.

For people that don't understand what buster does, or what SANJI does, can you give us some examples so they can be better educated, get better insight into it?

Every guy in our team is individually really strong, they are stronger than average pro players, I'm 100% sure that all of my players are at a really high level of individual skill, especially buster, he is one of the strongest players I've ever played. Individually, I'm sure he is much stronger than me, much stronger than anyone on the professional scene. But he is playing positions where he can't show it, but he is so consistent, he is just a cool player. As well as SANJI. When SANJI joined our team we had really good results, we won a tournament in Kiev and a tournament in Brazil and he was delivering really good at these tournaments. But after that, something happened with our team and this was the period where we lost 10 important games. These were officials to get to some cool leagues, like ECS, or cool LAN tournaments like ESL One New York.

We were losing and I think we were just lost as a team at this period. We were seeing some problems in SANJI, we were talking with him a lot. But the problem wasn't in him, it was a problem in our team because we never believed in our fifth players. We always had a fifth player in which we didn't believe. But recently, when our boss came to our gaming house, to our bootcamp, we had a really big talk about everything and we started believing in each other. He said some very cool things, our CEO [Yongun Kim] is just an amazing guy in terms of psychology and he helped us before this Major. I have no words, he inspired everyone to believe in every other player in the team.

You are in the Major grand final, you don't know who you are going to play yet, what are your expectations?

My expectations? I don't know what will happen because before every game we were sitting and thinking about how we don't know what is going to happen. But we were focusing on the current day and not the future. So now after we won against Renegades we are focusing on this game and we really want to play against Astralis because we know they have one of the highest levels in terms of team play. They are a really good team.

Is there anything you want to add?

Yeah. I'm so happy that I didn't join Na`Vi when they invited me after our really good start in Rio and Kiev. I think that is what forced me to believe in my team. And now when we hit the grand final stage I'm so happy that I believed in my guys, my organization, in my friends, and made the right choice.

You decided to not join Na`Vi? Why?

Yes, they invited me when they were having struggles with Edward. They also invited Boombl4, but one guy wrote to me, I can't say who, and he said that I'm one of the first guys on their list. But I decided to reject Na`Vi because I believed in my team and my organization. I did this because back when I was a nonamer, I was just playing from home and one day I was in a really bad mood. I was 17 years old, playing PUGs, and I was dominating, but everyone was calling me a cheater. Nobody wanted to invite me to a team in the local scene and I wanted to delete CS:GO. I was already pressing "Delete" and one guy wrote to me on Steam. That was my current CEO, he invited me to a team and after that we achieved something after a year on bootcamp. When he asked me if I would accept an invitation to Na`Vi or another team I said: "No. I'll only leave you after I've given you three times more then you gave me". I gave a promise and since that day I'm playing for an organization in which I believe.

Just kick this bots for starix as coach, and Zeus for xsepower since s1mple often play with a rifle only thing that keep kane in NaVi is Zeus while they will remove Zeus kane will be removed as well P.S Mouz and future?

2019-09-07 23:22
Cuz everybody in NaVi except Zeus is 22 years old max? It's 6 months but ok, they're looking strong maybe for max a semifinal at big events NaVi rape them pretty easy in Cologne
2019-09-07 23:24
hah, good luck in the future. mouz with such a new lineup almost beat liq in bo3, how many bo3's have navi played vs liq and lost? xaxa. The mentally in navi sucks ass, if they ever win big event it's most pure luck, ence vs navi at the one lan at mirage, wth are they doing, brain dead team.

what do you mean lose everything??? ENCE have won 2 tournaments and showed a good perfomance on many LAN Tournaments. Even when they were losing to the teams like Liquid, Vitality, Astralis, NaVi etc. They were showing a great games. They also lost so many LAN games vs the champion of that tournaments, so ENCE are good.

the way avangar have been playing in this major compared to navi, navi should outright disband their current roster and hire avangar instead. the current roster should look for a t2 or t3 org to pick them up because honestly they aren't worth the money they are getting.

You can call him what you want, same with guy over here saying almighty s1mple, when noobs like you don't understand that cs is a team based game, come back and talk when you understand. This is the reason why astralis was so dominating, let's have s1mple in a team or choke NiKo etc, with this you win more events xaxa, who's the brain dead one, hmmmm?

if avangar can have consistent results and be ranked higher than NaVi it'll be the best decision. This interview really made me a fan of qikert and AVANGAR.
2019-09-07 21:55
no way navi loses to avangar consistently, imo avangar just had bad enemys ( mimimi vitality #2 blabla ) vitality played awful the whole tournemant
2019-09-07 21:57
AVANGAR have been steadily improving since 2017. This isn't just a fluke run.
2019-09-07 22:32
this is especially a fluke run, considering what avangar did in past tournemants

A fluke run? Actually watch all their games for in this major instead of looking comparing teams player by player. Avangar has been incredible. Bringing back rounds from player deficits, good strats, incredible teamwork. Theres real synergy within that team
2019-09-08 12:47
Vitality is much better than navi

2019-09-07 22:24
Liquid was the only team that wasnt garbage for this period.
2019-09-07 23:33
Such a big cis org, and most likely to waste his career if he wants to win events, if he only want paychecks and lose navi would be the best. 2019-04-07 last win and only win this year, such a GREAT team, xaxa.

its just matter of amount of sellout. Do u think for example that he will refuse if they offer him 1kk$ ?
2019-09-07 21:51
lol navi offers money to avangar and not qikert, and it has nothing to do with the buyout if the player doesnt want to join other team ofc he would have great conditions in navi, like all the invites, everything top notch, great salary
2019-09-08 01:48
Money is not everything and not everyone can be bought.
2019-09-08 12:13
It is, for 99.9% people. The question is amount. The other 0.01% is a ones who already have more than enough money and the ones who dont need money like some monks etc

i meant he just got used to friends , team = zone of comfort Obviously that NaVi its step forward in his career, yes he reach major final but that it, i very doubt we gonna see AVANGAR in playoffs of some big events soon, so goodluck to him, its like Totti in Roma, he chose friends and native team instead of trophies and money, his choice

money i can agree on, not many trophies going the way of navi these days. Will take loooong time before they get good after roster change as well, prob do even worse they done in 1-2 years more before they maybe can get back on track, if ever.

Probably they'll make some playoffs after major but gonna fall eventually. Then he is going to say that "ok, i give three times more than you gave me, now i'll have a new page on my career." and gonna leave. But still a classy move.

Doesn't matter the seeding, bring in all the excuses you got, Na'Vi are a bad team, they only got a couple of good individuals. As a team they're worse than CR4ZY. And qikert earned respect of many CS fans, including me. Very mature and wise decision.

You should climbing to the top and proving you are the best and he decided to stay in slump. Just a wasted potential
2019-09-08 13:08
I'm very thankful to the parenting I had that I don't share this mentality with you. You got nothing good within. It's much better to be naive than completely obsessed with money without any values or manners. A man like his will always be alright, if he joined Na'Vi and played poorly, he would be kicked for sure and achieved a lot less.

But he would had a chance to become a real pro and competing on top tier level. Now he has and will only has nothing but that fluke 2nd place
2019-09-08 13:12
You don't know anything about it. he's already a real pro. Too much assumptions based on that little you've seen in the past. I don't feel like keep talking about it with you. You don't seem like a mature person at all.

Getting full of himself in one lucky run. Way to go instead of being humble. People barely know him and he is talking like he will be the next coming of our lord Jesus Christ in csgo. Na'Vi will always stay relevant to the scene.

2019-09-08 04:57
I agree. There are so many great teams in EU and CIS, that rarely get the chance to show their strength because qualifiers are super stacked. I'm really looking forward to see more of Avangar. I was also really impressed with Syman and Dreameaters and would like to see more of them.

you totally right i know nothing about him, but i still don't get why he wanted to stay in avangar
2019-09-07 23:30
He wants to win, not lose like navi almost always does these days. I know many people will rather do little and earn more, but this guy is hungry, young, have passion for the game and also loyal to the people that gave him a chance, his like 1000 times more mature then s1mple prob more mental strength as well. Even if he did join navi, maybe he would have to leave 2-4 months after cause s1mple didn't like him or something, never a done deal with something like this, risky as f atm imo.

if that was the cage then of course not, but i'm pretty sure navi wouldn't allow s1mple to be like that in navi theese days, of course there will be a sudden teamdiscussion which can be rude if you do something terrible wrong, but that would not be the cage here i think, and if it where he would proberly have so many other options after if that was the cage aswell, navi doesn't have to beat many good teams theese days to reach playoffs, so they would still have many decent tournaments, and might even reach something better if they really decided to change something new, i just really don't see a way forward for him in avangar, even if they win this major

2019-09-08 00:10
s1mple deserves a major too and NiKo, and karrigan, and GuardiaN and all of Liquid It doesn't matter who deserves a major, if they fail when it truly matters they don't really deserve it.
2019-09-08 00:29
Actually Liquid does not. No one does. It must be earned.
2019-09-08 00:58
last sentence was spot on, if choke NiKo wasn't a choker they would had one, GuardiaN, carrygaN and he. Liquid with nitr0 and EliGE does not deserve at this point, so many waste chances, never know if they ever come back in the form they was, seen it with many teams before, like faze had somewhat a great run, not even close to as good liquid was, but nowhere to be seen today. cs change fast! I love this final, i would love to see both teams win this one.

All of these, just to get REKT by Astralis? Ence 2.0 And beating Rng for a ticket to final doesn’t make you that great and become cocky af. Lost all respects to the guy.

In the long run he will regret that. Watch where ENCE, Gambit even North are.... Nowhere. Navi is much much much more bigger organisation that would be much better for joungsters like him.
2019-09-08 03:44
+1 avangar next gambit,ence,vitality,furia,liquid and etc after major back to tier 3
2019-09-08 03:59
+100 agree bro qikert dont know what he said, dumb mistake he just feeling arogant after reach final major like ence, he dont know what hapen next, s1mple will make hole in your head qikert
2019-09-08 05:19
No, he won't regret that. Not all the people can sell themselves and not everyone prioritize money over everything else.
2019-09-08 12:21
it’s impossible to find out the right choice if u haven't accepted it. potentially the conditions in navi should be better but we have what we have. adren shares his experience with the team but he plays better than zeus anyway.

2019-09-08 05:02
I wonder, why ppl think that qikert said anything bad about NaVi? He said that he is happy that he believed in his team and the org decpite having chances to advance into bigger org ( im not eve taking the part that he never said he actually had an offer, just was scouted as one of), and yeah, this show how big are his balls and how loyal is he to the team, respect <3 ALGA AVANGAR, good luck in finals
2019-09-08 05:10
But no need to say "IM SO HAPPY NOT JOIN NAVI" wtf is that he just make mistake with his word

Because people read the title of the article and nothing else before making comments. The entire article is about qikert praising his teammates and crediting those in his team that people often overlook, about how he didn't leave Avangar because he respects his team. Even so, people are calling him arrogant because they read the title and think qikert is saying he is better than Navi.

This is default fluke top2 with easier bracket and after that you will disappear together with your team. And Na`Vi will be ALWAYS on top like they were all these years since their birth (2009). And you, Qikert, will cry about these disrespectful words, trust me...

Zeus retired, he already said that he wanted to retire 2019. They were on the bottom without him, but just because they had Seized on their team and he was a bad IGL. Now they have Electronic, who looks like the strongest player right now, even more than S1mple, and Boombl4, who is able to take the IGL role. Zeus tried to teach Boombl4 and he will do his job good. It won't be Zeus IGL style i think, but he will surely take some of his teaching and implement it within his game.
