s1mple joins Na’Vi
Ukrainian based team Natus Vincere (Na’Vi) decided to switch up their roster adding Oleksandr “s1mple” Kostyliev. Oleksandr fulfilled his dream of joining the organisation, after stating on numerous occasions his interest in playing for the team.
Zeus steps aside.
As a result of the decision made Daniil “Zeus” Teslenko has become an inactive member of the roster. “s1mple” will replace veteran captain “Zeus”, one of the original roster founders of Natus Vincere and a player with a lot of experience. News on Daniil’s future in CounterStrike is expected by the end of the month. Whilst it’d be safe to speculate that he is taking a break and will most likely work behind the scenes within organisation.
Is Na’Vi an unstoppable force now?
Although Oleksandr played an important role at Team Liquid there were downsides, such as adjusting to his new lifestyle. The Ukrainian’s discomforts at the North American organisation were becoming clear. Oleksandr found it difficult adapting to the different environment and was feeling increasingly homesick.
After his extremely impressive performance at the ECS Season 1 Final most noteworthy (found here), S1mple was keen to find a new roster. The move is looking good for both sides as s1mple’s been on hot form recently. With such a consistent team mate at his side by the name of Ladislav “GuardiaN” Kovacs. The Na’Vi team looks incredibly solid right now. If both players are playing well, maybe there could be a CS:GO major trophy in Natus Vincere’s cabinet.
