NAVI returned to the top of CS:GO with an impressive tournament in Lisbon. A massive victory against FaZe ignited s1mple and the rest of the gang to perform like we saw last year. Perhaps a little unexpected for the NAVI side themselves, as s1mple said during a press conference before the tournament.
You can see the press conference, where s1mple also mentions the benching of Boombl4.
We also spoke with NiKo, who talked about his own role, and how the G2 roster is developing.
OG did surprisingly well in the tournament, where the team even had to field a stand-in. In-game leader Nemanja "nexa" Isaković talked about the OG rebuild, and how the team had tried to sign both YEKINDAR and jks.
One of the key stories of the whole event was the new in-game leader for NAVI, Denis "electroNic" Sharipov.
Team Vitality made it all the way to the Grand Final, but in the end apEX and his men had to realize, that NAVI was on another level.
s1mple was delighted with the win, and also told, that he hoped, that Viktor "sdy" Orudzhev would repeat his stand-in role at the upcoming IEM Cologne.
