Perfecto on the Fear of Natus Vincere’s Opponents: “You Understand That You Can Do Whatever You Want”

Natus Vincere player Ilya Perfecto Zalutsky spoke about how his team's rivals feel pressure from the club's name alone. Zalutsky spoke about this at the IEM Cologne 2022 press conference.

Yes, you notice it while playing. Opponents do some actions with less focus. They are a little afraid when they play against us. Maybe it's not just about us. You can see when any tier 2 team plays against tier 1. It's not that normal, but it happens.
This adds more confidence. You understand that you can do whatever you want, and the enemy will be afraid of you.
