— Will Oleksandr "s1mple" Kostyliev lift one final CS:GO trophy with his new international Natus Vincere team, or will MOUZ's youthful squad leave their mark in Global Offensive before moving to CS2?
Aleksib on stream: "We felt like we only played Mirage as a team, hyping each other up and trying to emerge with the game and not let emotions bother us. It felt like waving the white flag in the first two maps, They were better prepared, they didn't let that happen to them."
"We made a couple of mistakes and it felt like we were enemies with each other in the team. That's crucial in a final, everything goes wrong. We couldn't dig ourselves out of it."
On Jimpphat: "sergej never had nerves, and neither does Jimpphat. Its just a shame the game is changing I feel like they could do even more damage in CS2."
On CS2: "We spent a long time boot camping for this event. First of all it's individual practice and to get the hang of the game. Then its the hardest we can go for Sydney."
xertioN on stream: "I'm excited to have my teammates back with me alongside one of the best riflers in the world [in frozen], for me he is the best."
On the NXT journey: "It's about the people, we have a really good core. We've had a winning mentality since day one. We have this aura where we go game by game but we know what we are capable of. It's the best teams in the world that we have beat, I'm happy to be a part of it."
On CS2: "Hell yeah [we're here to stay]. I don't think we are the best team in the world tactically, we are just having fun. Other teams give up, but we don't."
On torzsi: "torzsi had a tough year but he is doing incredible. Before you wanted him to be confident, now you kind of want to put him on a leash."
