B1ad3: "electroNic is far from reaching his ceiling. He is not the best IGL right now"

NAVI coach Andrey "B1ad3" Gorodenskiy answered several questions from fans in a video on the club's YouTube channel. In particular, the specialist shared his opinion on the actions of Denis "electroNic" Sharipov, spoke about the most important quality for a CS:GO pro player and explained why Oleksandr "s1mple" Kostyliev is the best player in the world.

According to the coach, electroNic has what it takes to become the best in-game leader in the pro scene, but he is still far from achieving this status.

I think electroNic is far from reaching his ceiling and he can certainly do way better. He is not the best IGL right now because he has little experience, but he has definitely got the potential to be the best.

Choosing between aim, game sense and mechanics, B1ad3 cited game sense as a key quality for a CS:GO esports athlete.

I think a good player possesses more qualities, but the most important one out of these three is probably game sense.

Gorodenskiy believes that s1mple is the best player in the world due to his unique vision of various situations on the server.

What makes s1mple the GOAT? I guess his inner qualities, identity and personality. I'd say his nature. Every sport has personalities like this who has a unique vision of some game situations. Also his game sense.

The interview with B1ad3 was recorded during ESL Pro League Season 16, where NAVI made it to the playoffs, despite three defeats in the group stage. The team has three weeks to prepare for the decisive stage of the tournament.
