M0NESY: "I would like to play for NAVI in future. Just because I love the organization"


G2's Ilya "m0NESY" Osipov revealed that he would like to play for NAVI in the future. In the BLAST Overtime show at Paris Major 2023, the young prodigy also spoke about G2's progress over the year and revealed that he admired FalleN.

How G2 has changed after Aleksib

Last year I was learning a lot, wasn't that confident. In the Antwerp game [vs FURIA], I remember we lost our comeback, started putting a lot of pressure on ourselves. Lost a lot of stupid rounds that affected us. Our team has changed completely. Now we are confident, we are in our comfort zone with communication and everything.

Would m0NESY like to come back to NAVI?

I would like to play for NAVI. Just because I love the organization, but not now. Maybe in the future. We'll see. I cannot just straight away say that I'm gonna play for NAVI. <...> I like to play on a team with B1T one day. He's my best friend, and I would love to do it.

Who was m0NESY's favorite player before he became pro?

I like FalleN. Because me and my brother were playing 1.6. I mean, he was playing, and I was watching him. Also, he showed me FalleN, my brother has FalleN's frag movie in his team profile. I watched Luminosity a lot, even against NAVI. I'm not sure which Major it was, maybe Columbus. I also liked fer. I liked to rifle and used his crosshair: size 1, style 4 [laughs]. I still remember it.

Before coming to G2 Esports, m0NESY played for the NAVI Junior academy team alongside Valerij "B1T" Vakhovskij. Currently, the lineup doesn't field any Russian players, and even though the main roster has, NAVI claim they will not sign players from that country anymore.

G2 is going 1-2 at BLAST Paris Major's Legends Stage. They will play the elimination game against Fnatic today, May 15, 15:30 CEST.
