Former Astralis Coach and current Vitality CS:GO coach, Zonic is in the time of his career and is the center of attraction from CS:GO pundits and fans around the world.
This is in big thanks to the veteran’s trophy haul, which he added to on May 21 when he won the BLAST Paris Major, making it the fifth CS:GO Majors in total that the veteran has won.
Zonic has now won it more than anybody helping his players rack up trophies, including tier-one international competitions along the way.
Furthermore, he was the skipper in charge of the most dominant CS:GO team ever witnessed, as the 2018-19 Astralis squad won three CS:GO Majors in a row.
However, Zonic, after the BLAST Paris Major victory over GamerLegion on May 21, gave his thoughts while playing down the debates of him being the best in the game.
“Obviously, yeah, stat-wise, you could argue, but for me, I don’t really think about it because there are a lot of good coaches. A lot of people have the perception that coaches are just tactical geniuses and that [this] is what makes them good, but there are just so many layers to it: how you approach the players, how you handle them individually, and how you structure their life, how you structure the planning to make sure you’re ready for every tournament.” zonic said.
The Dane went on to praise the players he worked with to win the five majors as a coach as the major reason for his success, as they are the ones on the server.
In context, Zonic has worked with AWPers like dev1ce and ZywoO and powerful riflers such as dupreeh, Magisk, Xyp9x, and Spinx since becoming a coach in 2015.
Other trophies that Zonic has won before including the ELEAGUE Atlanta Major in January 2017, the FACEIT London Major in September 2018, the IEM Katowice Major in March 2019, and the StarLadder Berlin Major in September 2019 with Astralis.
