Other figures in the community also acknowledged donk's talent.

"[Honestly,] it's [a bit] worrying how dependent Spirit is on donk," broadcast analyst Lucas "Bubzkji" Andersen wrote on X. "Especially if you consider it's his First T1 LAN. Hard to believe he'll be at Spirit until the end of 2024. An unique rifle player who's one of the best mechanical wise atm, and now also showcasing it LAN against international [competition]."
