Natus Vincere’s CEO announced on Twitter that s1mple and flamie will officially remain with the organization. No more info have been disclosed.
Yesterday, ESPN Brasil, Flickshot, and HLTV revealed that SK Gaming and Natus Vincere were negotiating the transfer of two star players: Aleksandr "s1mple" Kostyliev and Egor "flamie" Vasilyev.
According to their sources, s1mple was almost confirmed, while things were more complicated with flamie, perhaps due to his high buyout clause price.
Today, all the Brazilians fans have been disappointed because Haris Pilton, NaVi CEO, confirmed on Twitter that the players will keep playing under their brand. Both of them also retweeted his message on their personal accounts.
Natus Vincere’s roster:
- Ioann "Edward" Sukhariev
- Aleksandr "s1mple" Kostyliev
- Egor "flamie" Vasilyev
- Danylo "Zeus" Teslenko
- Denis "electronic" Sharipov
- Mikhaylo "Kane" Blagin (coach)
