NaVi and FlipSid3 announced some changes in their CS:GO rosters. Electronic signed a contract with the Ukrainian team, while seized has been loaned to the American one.
With two concurrent announcements the two organizations revealed their rosters' changes, confirming the rumours leaked in the past weeks.
A month ago, seized asked to step down from the active roster and was temporarily replaced by Aleksey "1uke" Zimin.
In today’s statement, the Russian player thanked the team for all the great time together, but also explained that this change was necessary because the atmosphere within the team wasn’t very productive anymore.
FlipSid3 Tactics have been reluctant to lose a talented player such as electronic, but in the end they resolved to grant his wish.
Natus Vincere’s roster
- Danylo "Zeus" Teslenko
- Ioann "Edward" Sukhariev
- Aleksandr "s1mple" Kostyliev
- Egor "flamie" Vasilyev
- Denis "electronic" Sharipov
- Mikhaylo "Kane" Blagin (coach)
Denis "seized" Kostin is still under contract with NaVi until the end of the year, but meanwhile he will play on loan for FlipSid3.
He agreed to compete under their flag in the qualifier for ELEAGUE Major Boston, and eventually also during the Major in January.
