The loan period of the Ukrainian Counter-Strike:Global Offesnsive player, Ioann 'Edward' Sukhariev whom acted as a Captain and the In Game Leader for Winstrike in the past two months or so has now ended.
The player will return to his contracted organization,
Natus Vincere where he will be
innactive within the roster.
The future of both the player and the Winstrike CS:GO roster is uncertain for the time being, the announcement was made on the Winstrike website where Ivan 'Johnta' Shevcovit wrote:
"Today the lease of Ioann 'Edward' Sukharev to the Winstrike Team has officially ended. Edward has been a captain since the transfer of Kirill 'Boombl4' Mikhailov to NAVI.
We are very grateful to Ioann for his help during this period. Two bootcamps, two LAN tournaments, online matches and trainings…
The schedule was tight. Taking into account the workload in NAVI from where he came to us without a rest, it was not easy and I, personally, am very grateful to him for his commitment."
At the same time the head manager of Winstrike, Adalyat Mamedov had this to say:
"Everybody knows that Edward is a living legend of Counter-Strike and an incredible professional. In addition, he is a very intelligent and pleasant person with exemplary inner discipline. I am glad that for all those years he has been playing CS Edward has not lost his passion and thirst for victories. I would call the period we worked together and the achievements from that period mutually beneficial. Our young players learned a lot from him, and he tried himself in a new role of captain and IGL.
Hopefully, that experience will help him in his future career. I do not exclude the possibility that we will work together again, but today the lease contract has ended and Edward goes back to NaVi as a reserve player."
With this in mind, the two organizations now have the following CS:GO rosters:
For Natus Vincere the CS:GO team is:
- Egor 'flamie' Vasilyev
- Denis 'electronic' Sharipov
- Kirill 'Boombl4' Mikhailov
- Aleksandr 's1mple' Kostyliev
