Danylo Teslenko, known as “Zeus” is a 31-year-old Ukranian CS:GO player and a leader who had played for teams like Gambit Esports and Natus Vincere. In 2017, He rejoined the Natus Vincere and on 9 September 2019, he announced his retirement.

Zeus said:

“It was a tough decision — I have been thinking about it for a while. There were rumors I could leave after BLAST, but I believed our new roster could win a Major, or make it into the finals at least. But we lost early on, and I realize I need to give way to the youth. It’s rough, honestly: I have devoted 20 years of my life to Counter-Strike, and it’s about time to wrap it up. I want to thank everyone who was with me all this time, cheered for me and believed in me. This is not an end, but a start of a new path. There will be lots of interesting stuff: I want to develop esports in CIS, build a pro academy, engage with the young. I have lots of ideas. But I will not be coaching, at least for now. It might happen sometime in the future.”

Zeus added:

“My last event, BLAST, will start in a few days in Moscow. I am inviting every person who can — come and support us. Our eyes are set on the victory. Hugs and kisses to all. Thanks for all the support throughout 20 years. It’s pleasing to read the supporting comments: you do indeed warm my heart in this hard moment!”
