PUBG / News / 7 December 2019 — 13:17

ADOUZ1E and POKAMOLODOY left the team.

ua Natus Vincere esports club announces that ru Roman «ADOUZ1E» Zinovev and ru Vadim "POKAMOLODOY" Ulshin are leaving the PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds squad. Their contract with ua NAVI expires at the end of 2019, but the team will not interfere with Roman and Vadim’s transfer to other organizations.

Thus, in ua NAVI remain ru Arsenii "ceh9" Ivanychev and ru Andrey "Bestoloch" Ionov. The names of the new members of the PUBG-squad will be announced at the start of the next year, stay tuned.

ru Vadim "POKAMOLODOY" Ulshin has been playing for ua Natus Vincere since April 2018, when the club signed the lineup of ru Grubie. Under Vadim’s leadership, ua NAVI won several championships, including the GLL Season 1 LAN tournament and took 4th place at the PUBG Global Invitational 2018.

ru Roman "ADOUZ1E" Zinovev joined ua NAVI prior to the start of  PUBG Europe League 2019 – Kick-off Cup. Together with him, the Born to Win successfully performed in the second phase of the PEL (2nd place), in the third phase, placed 3rd, and at the World Championship took the 6th place.

"This is not an easy decision for the club and the team, because with Vadim "POKAMOLODOY" we have come a long way, from the very first day of the existence of the PUBG lineup in the organization, and Roman "ADOUZ1E", with his outstanding performance in the last season of PUBG Europe League. However, I would like to note that if there was a possibility to keep the current lineup, we would do so.

Unfortunately, our team cannot continue to play together, due to differences in players' views on the game and the team building, which was sometimes noticeable during the season and clearly manifested at the main tournament of the year — PUBG Global Championship.

The mix of the most talented players of the RU scene, signed by us in April this year, despite the efforts, was not able to become a cohesive team and reach a high level that would correspond to the highest potential of each of the players. Perhaps, the upcoming changes will help each member of the squad to fulfill their potential in the 2020 season.

The future will show if the decision was right, but at any rate, we hope that the experience gained in our team and organization will serve Vadim and Roman well. We ask our fans to show your love and support to all four players — POKAMOLODOY, ADOUZ1E, ceh9 and Bestoloch — together with us, please thank them for the best moments of this season and wish them good luck in the next year".
