Ceb labelled Saksa and Tundra choking team at Stockholm Major. Later that year Tundra won TI122023-03-24 10:46:00
The documentary dedicated to Sebastian "Ceb" Debs and his victory as a stand-in at Stockholm Major 2022 revealed some interesting backstage conversations in OG. In one of the episodes, during a classic motivational speech, Ceb labelled Tundra and especially his former teammate Martin "Saksa" Sazdov as chokers.
We are coming to get them, and they know it. Imagine Tundra: they are in the winner bracket, their strats have been broken, everybody understands them now, and they see OG [going] 2-0, 2-0, 2-0, going at them full speed from the lower bracket. So they are like, "Oh my god, oh my god!"
I can tell you. I know Saksa. I don't know a lot about them, but I can tell you, Saksa is a mega-choker, no joke. The others, I'm pretty sure, they choke too. Sneyking, how many times have we knocked him out of tournaments? He must be like this, choking. They are like this.
In the following lower bracket final, Saksa had a really tough match after a misplay in the early game and was targeted by OG the whole game. Ceb continued mocking their opponents during the match. As he explained in the same video, this is mostly a trick to boost the morale of the teammates, so there's no way to really tell how honest he was about Saksa.
OG defeated Tundra and took the trophy of ESL One Stockholm Major. Their opponents came back strong at TI11 and won the whole thing. Since Tundra was snowballing and most of their wins came from superior understanding of meta, not from overcoming serious hardships and flashy comebacks, it's hard to really say anything about their mental resilience from that event.
