CEO Natus Vincere

"I know some fans will be glad to hear it, while others will be very frustrated. NAVI players and staff currently have a mix of those. On one hand, we are welcoming one of the most talented young players in the world; on the other hand — NAVI legend, one of the founders, a true, kind and honest man, is leaving.

This is not the time to dig up the dirt and try to explain the reasons. What I am going to say is this: we parted on good terms, and it is not the end of the road for us. Vanya received some offers from us, and we will be waiting for him when he decides to end his competitive career. I would like to add that I have never met a more professional, disciplined and hard-working man. It was an honor to work with you, bro, and I am looking forward to more. But so far, I wish you good luck on the new team, and I will cheer for you.

Kirill, you have shown yourself on the pro scene already, but I am sure this isn’t the limit. We promise we will help you develop your potential and make sure the adaptation period is as smooth as possible. We believe in you, and welcome into the “yellow-black” camp. I see the goal, I see no obstacles (I saw something like that in your tweets).

I would also like to thank Winstrike Team and Yaroslav Komkov personally for the most constructive and transparent position during the negotiations. It was nice doing business with you, and good luck at the minor qualifiers!"

NAVI.CS:GO player

"I am grateful to Natus Vincere and the players for this opportunity. I will give it my all every game, every tournament, no matter what. There’s lots of work to be done, thanks to fans for the support.

I won’t be talking big, I am used to letting my actions speak for me, not words".
