Who knew one interview could come with so much drama involving so many players. A recent interview with Marcelo “coldzera” David on the Shot da Caju YouTube channel has caused quite a commotion in the CS:GO scene.
In the lengthy interview, the star Brazilian player told all, or at least his side of all, of his time with the now MIBR lineup, experiences with Astralis, Jake “stewie2k” Yip, Gustavo “SHOOWTiME” Gonçalves and more.
Certain accusations and claims made against the team(s) and players haven’t gone without some firing back though.
During the interview, he claimed that SHOOWTiME would choose to play other games over Counter-Strike and after a specific instance of this happening the team would go on to lose 16-0. The accused reacted on Twitter where he denied these claims and said coldzera should “be ashamed and stop talking shit.”
He wasn’t the only player to respond though as Astralis’ Nicolai “dev1ce” Reedtz didn’t take too kindly to comments made about himself. coldzera claimed that upon reaching the top, Astralis stopped hanging out with MIBR and dev1ce became a “snob.” coldzera tells that he decided to confront dev1ce about his “skyrocketed” ego which led to the Danish star “crying and apologizing.”
That isn’t how the Dane remembers it though.
stewie2k seems to be at a loss as to why coldzera has decided to make these claims or air this kind of information at all. “That’s not even the whole story, what Cold said what stupid as shit. I don’t even know why he’s saying these things, he’s just hurting himself,” the Team Liquid player said.
Several other players came up in the story, some good and some not so good but at this time no other comments have been made.
Regardless, the publicity for coldzera gained from the community and other professional players is quizzical at best.
