Natus Vincere’s offlaner, Paul “9pasha” Khvastunov shared his thoughts on online tournaments during the coronavirus pandemic. He believes that such championships lack the spirit of competition and can only be used as practice for the team.
"For me, leagues on the Internet are a fight for nothing. It is clear that money is cool and fun; everything is built around money in our world, but roughly speaking, I want to pick up something after winning something and say: "Yeah, I'm a winner" ... That is, to strive for something, for victory, some kind of recognition, some kind of peace of mind after you have come a long way, were able to win, and that's all - you are the best, it becomes easy on your soul that you could. From the fact that you are sitting here at the computer at the bootcamp, playing ... Well, you won something - cool, almost won - it's a pity, lost - it's bad. Not that feeling, I don't like it at all. But you have to play, I want the team to learn from something, to develop somehow. In any case, it is necessary to play, and we play. "
Since August 14, Natus Vincere have been participating in the OMEGA League Europe Immortal Division.
