s1mple: "Gambit, Vitality and NIP are the most dangerous opponents of NAVI in the Legends Stage"
Alexandr "s1mple" Kostylev, an AWPer of NAVI, in an interview to the club's YouTube channel called Gambit, Vitality and NIP the most serious opponents of his team at the PGL Major Stockholm 2021 Legends Stage. The Ukrainian player also appreciated the performance of FaZe, who he does not see as favorites of the current tournament.
Gambit, Vitality and NIP are the most dangerous opponents of NAVI in the Legends Stage. FaZe? They’re good. They play better on LAN, but... I don't know, honestly. Maybe they are well-prepared, but it seems to me that FaZe are not the favorites of this Major.
In addition, Kostylev shared his expectations from the opening match of his team against Heroic and spoke negatively about the computers that the tournament’s organizers provided to the participants.
Praccs went well. Now I'm thinking how to beat Heroic. I remembered that we have a best-of-one match. It is a difficult format, but everyone plays like that, so it's okay. I'm more interested in what computers will be like, what kind of setup and whether there will be any lags. I don't really like the PCs here. As far as I’m concerned, the organizers took them from The International. <...> Heroic is a fine opponent to have in the first match. I would like to win them again. Fighting with us, this team always goes toe-to-toe.
The match between NAVI and Heroic is scheduled for today, October 30, at 15:10 MSK. You can follow up on PGL Major Stockholm 2021 on our website via this link.
