s1mple: "Right now, I'd say we're in the NA'VI era"


Recommended Posts

Four consecutive LAN victories and eight trophies overall in 2021 puts NAVI among the top teams in CS:GO history, s1mple says.

Natus Vincere finished off 2021 with a bang, winning their fourth straight LAN event, including the PGL Major in Stockholm, to culminate a year that saw the CIS squad bag eight trophies. The year that will go down in the books as one of the most dominant individual performances by a single player, as Aleksandr "⁠s1mple⁠" Kostyliev accrued eight MVP trophies, breaking the previous record of seven held by Nicolai "⁠device⁠" Reedtz.

It wasn't easy for Natus Vincere to finish off 2021 with a victory, however, as right after traveling to Copenhagen for the BLAST World Final they lost their opening match to Liquid, slowly gaining steam in the lower bracket with victories over Heroic, G2, Liquid and Vitality, before a CIS clash against one of their main rivals early on in the year, Gambit.

Following NAVI's grand final victory, we talked to the Ukrainian star about the team's feat as well as his own individual prowess in 2021 as he shared his views on the year as a whole, the tournament in Copenhagen and the grand final against Gambit, as well as what lies ahead for a team that has proven to be dominant like no other in the closing part of the year.

Interesting article, thanks for posting. I will most likely add it in https://eprotv.org in few hours as I make it ready.

I'm certain that 2022 will also be s1mple's year. This player has been playing amazingly for quite some time, and Na'Vi is too strong nowadays. Other teams will have to learn how to stop this player if they don't want Na'Vi to remain the throne.

So much disgussion around the "era" term. Let's just say NaVi started their era and be done with it. Does anyone really take this to heart if the word "era" is used or not? What are the true implications, really? Does this change anything? I just want to know if I missed something
