Na’Vi, one of Monster Energy’s elite professional gaming squads, has been tearing the esports world apart this spring, winning loud at the IEM Katowice. Despite the fresh roster updates, the guys demonstrated total dominance and full control over the game during the entire tournament, shutting down the already closed Spodek arena with a blasting Grand Finals against G2. This win catapulted them to the #1 spot in the HLTV rankings for the month of March!
So, what can be more exciting than speaking with the strongest CS:GO crew in the world? Yeah, a conversation with the coach that led them to victory!
Prior to another tournament – ESL Pro League – we sat down with Na’Vi CS:GO coach Andriy “B1ad3” Gorodenskiy. If you are at least a bit into professional CounterStrike, you’ve definitely heard of Blade – this man has been around the pro-gaming since 2005, eventually taking over as a coach at Flipside3 Tactics and Gambit Esports at a later stage. Before putting his hand on the Na’Vi CS:GO coach position, Andriy performed as a Cybersports Director of the entire club, where he worked on the player and transfer policy, team preparation system and club infrastructure at large. In short, he’s got something to say. So we asked! Below is a conversation on the strategy, plans and direction of the beast Natus Vincere in the future.
