“While being sick, Ilya is not feeling well: it is difficult for him to play not only physically, but also psychologically, since he cannot help the team to the full.

Important tournaments await us, so now he needs to get in shape as soon as possible, and every match played worsens his condition and delays the recovery process.

It wasn't sensible to make a substitution for a match with Team Spirit, which is why we decided to abandon the game."

We would like to thank all ua NAVI fans, Counter-Strike fans, as well as ESL, the tournament operator, for understanding the situation and we wish ru Perfecto a speedy recovery.

The closest tournament for the Born to Win will be BLAST Premier: Fall 2020, which will be held from October 26th to November 4th. In the first fight, ua NAVI se Ninjas in Pyjamas.
