Following his announcement to retire from competitive CS:GO after BLAST Pro Series Moscow, Danylo “Zeus” Teslenko makes his departure. However, the CS:GO community banded together to give him a heartwarming sendoff.
The Legendary in-game leader had an esports career that spanned nearly two decades and helped contribute to the growth of Counter-Strike. Zeus amassed approximately $784,000 as a CS:GO pro and has attended 15 Majors. He has played for many great teams which include Virtus.pro, Gambit Esports, pro100 and Natus Vincere. He’s also the first player to reach the Grand Finals of a Major with two different teams.
The Ukrainian player spent nine years playing as Na’Vi’s captain and won 31 events for them. Last year he talked about retiring in 2019, and after their disappointing run at StarLadder Berlin Major, he made the announcement. However, his retirement doesn’t mean a departure from CS:GO entirely, as he is still very passionate about growing it, particularly in the CIS region.
As a result of this love for the game, he created the CIS Esports League which is open to CIS players of all levels. Featuring weekly tournaments and monthly prize pools, the league provides players with the chance to qualify for FACEIT Pro League. There's also the Zeus Cyber School he founded to help develop the CS:GO pros of the future. With all the goodwill he’s fostered, it's no surprise that the community is showing him this much love:
Na’Vi made a tribute video which highlights some of his best plays and gives a brief look at his accolades. You can check it out below.
