nafany: “We will be without any stress now”

A statement 2-0 victory over NIP, 16-13 on Dust2 and 16-6 on Inferno, sent Gambit to the knockout stage of the PGL Major Stockholm, where they join Natus Vincere, G2, and FURIA. With their ability to perform on LAN being under question since the return of offline play, the breakout team of the online era is relieved after delivering a good showing.

“We are happy that we managed to go to the playoffs, it was our main goal and we will look at what we can do in the playoffs now,” Vladislav “⁠nafany⁠” Gorshkov said to Milan “⁠Striker⁠” Švejda following the victory. “It will be a great experience for us, it will be the second time that we play in an arena with a crowd.”

Gambit signature stickers are coming

Gambit‘s only previous arena experience dates back to their Youngsters era. It was at the MSI MGA 2019 Finals which took place during IEM New York, but playing the Major in Stockholm will surely be a different ordeal.

Having reached the top 8, Gambit are looking where to set the bar next. “Of course, since we achieved our main goal, now we will focus on winning this tournament,” nafany said. “But we will see what happens. We will be without any stress now and we are happy about that.”

The in-game leader also gave insight into Gambit‘s comeback on Dust2 against NIP, a 12-2 CT half. He put it all down to the lack of information on the opponent since Valve introduced changes to the legendary map.

“I don’t think it was a comeback because we didn’t know a lot about their playstyle on the CT side after the changes, and they didn’t know about ours. That’s why we had good CT side scores, that is why we made a comeback. When you don’t know how your opponent is playing on the CT side it is very hard to play versus them.”
