After a total of six years with the Natus Vincere Counter-Strike:Global Offensive team, the russian player, Egor 'flamie' Vasilyev becomes a free agent.
The announcement of the move was made by the management of the team via a post over at their official website and a tribute movie.
The COO of the team Kucherov 'xaoc' Aleksey has wrote:
"We have made this decision based on the team's successful results recently and the specifics of the RMR system, which effectively doesn't allow a sixth player in the roster anymore.
Taking these factors into consideration, as well as Egor's contribution to the development of the discipline and the club in general, we have decided to give flamie the status of a free agent, so he doesn't come across possible restrictions for his further development.
Despite the fact that Egor is a NAVI veteran, he is young, motivated, experienced, and has a fantastic AIM.
These characteristics are definitely demanded in ambitious teams.
You can witness Egor's amazing shape at WePlay Academy League, where he plays with NAVI Junior."

- Ilya 'Perfecto' Zalutskiy
