With the news breaking that Danylo “Zeus” Teslenko has decided to retire from competitive play in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, many were quick to praise and share words of encouragement with the Counter-Strike veteran.
Having played Counter-Strike in some capacity since the early 2000’s, Zeus is a household name for all who follow the top level of the scene. He has earned the respect of other legends of the game such as Christopher “GeT_RiGhT” Alesund who dubbed Zeus “King” following a post thanking his followers for their support.
Even Duncan “Thorin” Shields who has called out Zeus more than once for his performance over the years took the time to tweet out how and why Zeus was a legendary in-game leader.
Former professional player and now one of the top CS:GO commentators Jason “moses” O’Toole congratulated Zeus on a “stellar career.”
Four time Major winner and StarLadder Berlin MVP Nicolai “dev1ce” Reedtz shared his respect in a tweet following the news.
Another player turned analyst, Jacob “Pimp” Winneche applauded Zeus’ ability as a leader.
Zeus will hang up his mouse for good following BLAST Pro Series Moscow where Na’Vi will make their last stand with the 31-year-old at the helm.
