Zeus' autobiography published in English

Retired player Danylo "Zeus" Teslenko has announced that his autobiography has been published for the first time in English.

In the book "Against All Odds: The Way to Victory", first released in Russian in May 2019, Zeus openly discusses his childhood and lays bare the hardships he went through during the early days of his career.

He then spends several chapters talking about his first tenure with Natus Vincere, the team he helped to create in 2009 and that would go on to dominate the 1.6 scene a year later, when they won Intel Extreme Masters IV, ESWC and WCG. Na`Vi struggled to find the same kind of success during the early years of CS:GO, with Zeus eventually being released from the team in the summer of 2016 to make way for Aleksandr "s1mple" Kostyliev, who "had dreamt" of playing for the famed organisation "since his childhood".

Zeus' autobiography is now available in English

Zeus, who retired from gaming in September, ends the book by sharing details of his time with Gambit - with whom he fulfilled his dream of winning a Major - and offering advice to young players who are looking to go down the esports path.

Below you can find a snippet from the book about Gambit's success at PGL Major Krakow:

"More than one million people from around the world watched the final. When we won ... we all yelled, hugged, kissed being overflowed with delight!

"That's how my dream to win the Major came true. It was happiness, joy, pleasure, a sense of complete moral satisfaction, thousands of greetings from relatives, friends, e-Sports fans ... My mother prayed for us; our girlfriends supported us... Everyone helped as best as they could. We celebrated the victory all together, it was very cool and fun.

"Well, after that everyone went their own way. After a little while I realized that the guys got a tiny problem – now they felt they are celebrities. And its symptoms appeared surprisingly quickly! Even before the Major I understood that we had some problems. But nevertheless, we got together and managed to overcome them by performing a real miracle, by becoming the champions. But afterwards for some reason the guys decided they needed to get rid of the coach, the one with whom we won this Major, the one who chose the most important third map in the semifinal) ... We had a long discussion of the coach, I tried to persuade them strongly that it would be a big mistake. I recorded a video on YouTube where I honestly and openly explained the situation ... I really wanted to save the team, but, apparently, the team itself did not comprehend that in full. They didn’t even understand that if Misha left, there would be a high probability that I would also leave to follow a friend, which I told them repeatedly. Meaning it was a challenge from them to me also."

The printed version of "Against All Odds: The Way to Victory" is already available in paperback and can be ordered on Amazon. A digital version can be found here.

Probably the most underrated IGL of all time. Huge achieviement with the original Navi line up back in the days. Then CSGO, NiP era 87-0 , FNATIC and all other shit. Until Gambit, against all odd, in few months he get his major victory. IMO it proove everything.

2020-01-30 21:30
s1mple is not the problem cuz he's insanely dedicated to CSGO and wants to win. Just a theory: I doubt that Astralis would've had the small slump in 2019 if they would've had a player like s1mple in the team. Furthermore, if you read s1mple's interview the team struggled in the past due to lack of commitment of other players. That said, it makes s1mple's performance over 2019 even more impressive. Let's see if they will/can keep up the chemistry they have now and if everyone stays motivated and hungry to fight for titles. If yes, you will see a strong NaVi in 2020. enlighted \closed

he is not underrated and never has been, even after lewis’ dumb comments on one of their BTN shows about zeus thorin as well as other analysts and joirnalists mentioned him in a positive way with thorin even mentioning him still within a top 5 best igls ever, so the word “underrated” only comes from kids on hltv whom tried to make him look underrated by saying smack about him which obviously doeesnt count cause those who follow the scene professionally and know their shit they know who zeus really is/was and how crucial he was in all of navis wins

What did Happy win? Kiddo. Zeus a way better than Happy and Happy doesn`t cost more than finger of Zeus. Zeus is the legends and he won lots of tournaments in CS 1.6, also in CS:GO hltv.org/player/484/Zeus#tab-achievement.. France <<<<<< Ukraine and Russia
2020-01-29 19:22
Happy has 2 majors and has always been way more skilled than Zeus. He literally transformed the lurker role for ever. The last line is a terrible bait.

The only things Happy's achieved in his whole career are that moment on Inferno and two major wins, but he basically got carried so the last thing doesn't even count.
2020-01-29 22:55
L M A O you realized you just said : "the only thing Happy achieved is the clip of the decade and winning the biggest csgo event twice" And then you say that he just got carried wich is let alone wrong, but the funniest is that your are defending fucking zeus man, the most carried player to ever play the game Bye now you are clearly baiting at this point nobody can be that biaised
2020-01-29 22:59
Clip of the decade? step down a notch baguette
2020-01-30 02:06
Voted by the people on the official csgo account
2020-01-30 14:12
Go onto numerous yt videos, noone is putting it as their first, noone in the comments is thinking its the first, also clip of the decade is bs, since his 4 shots has barely absolutely 0 skill to do with it, compared to snax cobble clutch, simples awp,
2020-01-30 17:59
Ok, thats your opinion, now you can cry as much as you want, it is officially the clip of decade and you can't do anything against it :)
2020-01-30 18:15
It's not official in any way, its a poll, monglet.
2020-01-30 18:51
It's literally made by the official csgo account you can't get more official and democratic than that. You are just crying because you don't like the outcome of the bracket
2020-01-30 22:06
No, the result is not made by the csgo account, the votes are from people, and yet again, go google it, find 1 single video where happys 4k is top3
2020-01-30 22:08
Why should i give a fuck about the opinion of the editors of 2-3 highlights videos while you refuse to take into account the result of a poll with 79k vote?? Are you retarded? The editors make their own tops, it's their opinion, it's subjective, the exact opposite to a poll with a lot of voters. I don't understand how you can be so stupid honestly
2020-01-30 22:24
If someone makes a video with 100k views, which 99 is likes and 1 is dislike That alone breaks this stupid poll of yours. And there are multipel of these clips Not a single one containing happy top5
2020-01-31 01:32

How long have Happy's teams dminated on the pro scene? What, 4 years? Now look at NaVi, they've never been out of top 20 for 9 years (2010-2019). Zeus could make almost any team work
2020-01-30 16:54
Zeus literally got kicked of Na'vi and they never dominated in csgo. Always behind Swedish, French, Brazilian, Danish or even NA scene
2020-01-30 18:17
All good leaders have been getting kicked, daps, gob b, zeus, golden etc.
2020-01-30 22:12

He got kicked because of his aim, his teammates thought they could do well with any igl, so they took a good aimer. Remember what happened after esl one ny? Garbage results, they had to bring him back. And the results improved

2020-01-29 17:48
if you call Zeus trash just because you only was able to see the sunset of Zeus' career, then i call you newfag.
2020-01-29 17:51
Never said he has not ever been a decent player. Just that as of most recently he has been utter gargbage.
2020-01-29 17:52
as i said, you're just newfag. and probably stupid if you cannot understand that a player cannot be World champion since 2010 and keep playing on good level till the end of his life. and if you cannot understand that when a guy is 30+ already and has a wife and daughter he for sure will play worse than before. Zeus used to be the best IGL + the best fragging IGL in 1.6. he and Na`Vi were raping all famous legends from 1.6 on daily basis and on Worldclass events. they dominated the scene like no one ever did before. the only 1 team can be compared to Na`Vi 2010 under Zeus and it is Astralis from nowadays. but you're stupid to understand these simple things. you think you can judge a player only by his last performance and by the sunset of his career. i will not be surprised if you will say that Get_Right is also bad player just because he was very bad at the end of his career. newfags will never understand these things so i didn't even expect you to do that

You think like that because you are newfag who never saw CS from the old and gold times. Nowadays players are bathing in luxury almost from the start of their career, in the past it was not like that. People were sacrificing their studies, their normal job, their relashionships and other important things for regular person. If you were not a newschool you would know that Zeus and Edward sacrificed more than others from the scene, that's why their team became so huge. I'm as a fan of fnatic have huge respect for these guys, for their passion to the game and their godlike rivalry against Fnatic, mTw, the Poles, SK-gaming, mousesports and many other teams who were the best, before these guys came to the scene.

Zeus and Edward were literally surviving when they were playing for Virtus Pro in 2009 , they had very bad salary and they were starving. They are legends without doubts

maybe check esports history. Before Dota and all this stuff started. Not even the big stars could make enough money for living. prizemoney wasn't pay out or years later. People like grubby who was a esports mega star didnt get his promised slary for years. So maybe shut the fuck up when u have no idea

how is that possible? they kicked Kane after Major and forced Zeus to go with him. after Major Zeus said: "guys, don't kick Kane, if you will kick Kane i will go with him". but they still did it. such ret^rds these GamBOT players

you are just so... You certainly don`t know a shit about situation. Right before the major Zeus agreed about kick Kane and all formalities were already done (organisation already signed up all documents so after the major he could not stay with Gambit - it`s called contract)

Impossible to win a major without a decent igl, so no, he didn't get "carried". nt

I've got my copy of book in Russian this summer. It's not ghostwrited as someone above suggested. The language is typical for Zeus, so even editor didn't bring much into it. The largest portion of book is devoted to 90's-early 00's years — Zeus childhood, CS 1.6 era, mostly pro100 times. Na`Vi era touched very slightly, only creation is covered more or less good, while transition to CS:GO and post-2010 time mentioned very briefly. I was excepting a more details about recent days, 2015-2017, but they're almost untouched. The piece written about Major mentioned in post is more or less the all what was written about Major and Gambit. There is not so much details about internal Na`Vi drama, about Zeus kick and relations between player, only a few pages. As I've said before, the CS 1.6 era covered really good, but it seems that Zeus was exhausted or not willing to write the same about CS:GO. There is a bunch of nice interviews with pro-players (retired and active) and also a good set of advice for young people who want to became professionals in e-sports. Was it worth reading? Definitely yes. While it's not a literature masterpiece, it feels like Zeus bring some soul and part of him into the book and it feels that he want to be honest with readers. 8/10 would read again.

Im guessin he left csgo since he didnt rly achieve much as a player nor igl there just the the free majorwin and thats thx to hob&co if u look at stats so ye..
2020-01-29 18:32
He achieved far more than most IGL's in CS:GO. He made the finals of a few majors, and won one of them. He also led his team to wins at some pretty large tournaments, and he kept Navi as a Top 5 team for a pretty long time. The fact that you said, "if you look at stats" means you're either baiting or don't understand his contributions at all (because if you looked at Navi before and after his departure, and the same with Gambit, you'd realize how important he was in a way stats will never indicate). TL;DR here's your reply

its so amusing to watch people do mental gymnastics to justify zeus being shit when in last 3 years navi 2! times went from top3 with zeus > to top10 without, while getting more skilled players
2020-01-30 13:22
Ugh. I know. These people have no concept of what's even going on. You can just look at the context of performance for teams he left and joined. The only team that's sort of still done ok is the current Navi, but I think a lot of that is due to B1ad3 working with the team.
2020-01-30 17:46
0/8
2020-01-29 19:41
he maybe didnt mention much cuz many players he would mention are still active and he doesn't want harm their image/career. Ofc I guess he could write a book about Navi and Gambit dramas but for what costs? And he didn't archive much? he achieved something not even Astralis archived.
2020-01-29 19:48
money wise he didnt achieve shit (regular stuff) image wise, agreed.. achieved alot since 1.6 etc
2020-01-29 20:41
Came in 2nd at 2 majors, won a major, and Starseries S7. Regular stuff? Those together are over $1mil in prizes. Yeah it's not Astralis/Liquid/fnatic levels but it's far better than plenty of teams.
2020-01-30 17:52

No it's not. The language of the book is too simple for professional ghostwriter. If you've ever read/watch Zeus blogs/vlogs you won't say it's ghostwritten.
2020-01-29 21:15
You are right, the language is very ... simple. But I think that even proves my point even more. A PRO ghostwriter would probably look at how he (Zeus) writes in general on his blog and mimic that. What do you think?
2020-01-30 18:46

Edward |

Dunno. I don't think it was ghostwritten because it mostly tells the story about Zeus himself. So he should somehow transfer all knowledge to the writer? Also, he announced that he started to write a book maybe in 2016? Or 2017? It took 3 years to complete.

story about Zeus (that I've posted before) At ESL NY a few years ago, NaVi were doing an autograph session. They'd been signing stuff for like four or five hours straight when their session ended. However, there were still tons of people left in line who had been waiting for hours. ESL told everyone that the session was over, and the rest of the NaVi players left (understandably--like I said, they'd been at it for quite a while) but Zeus just grabbed a sharpie and worked his way down the rest of the line. I'll always remember that.
