Zeus and Seized back in Natus Vincere, Kane as coach
Posted: Aug 9, 2017 Written by: do_0h

The CIS Counter-Strike:Global Offensive Ukraine Natus Vincere has announced the return of two players.


The two in questions are Russian Federation Denis 'seized' Kostin and their former In Game Leader Ukraine Daniil 'Zeus' Teslenko.


Along side Ukraine Zeus, former Kazakhstan Gambit Gaming coach, Ukraine Mikhaylo 'Kane' Blagin will be the new coach for Ukraine Natus Vincere.


It seems that the guys over at Kazakhstan Gambit Gaming wanted to remove Ukraine Kane and Zeus decided to leave with his friend.


The announcement was made by the CIS team via a post over at their official website where the CEO of Ukraine Natus Vincere Ukraine Yevhen 'HarisPilton' Zolotarov had this to say:

" Seven days ago, I would have said that Dania's transfer to Na`Vi was impossible. Nevertheless, the situation is constantly changing and life provides unexpected opportunities. I am proud that the legend is back to the club.

I am also happy that Kane, the man who had brought Gambit to victory at the last Major, joined us. We believe that his outstanding cooperation with Dania, vast experience and in-game thinking outside the box will strengthen our team. It is truly heartbreaking to bid farewell to Andi.

Andrey was a part of our organization since 2014, and went from website author to team analyst; think about it, he became a coach of Natus Vincere. I am thankful for all the work you've done for us, and wholeheartedly wish you good luck!"


At the same time, Ukraine Zeus made an interview with the guys over at the leading eSports news site, hltv.org where he went over the problems Kazakhstan Gambit Gaming had right before and after the Major.


Also on a long tweet, Ukraine Zeus among others stated:

" But the team thinks otherwise, overlooking my experience in this situation and my attempts at saving the roster. It's very weird to me, because in other sports everything happens differently, the coaches are celebrated for such achievements.

The key to success in a game - not only skilled players, but a captain/coach tandem. When this atmosphere and authority is disrupted, working with the team becomes very challenging."



With this in mind the new CS:GO teams for the two organizations involved in the transfer are:

For Ukraine Natus Vincere:

  • Russian Federation Egor 'flamie' Vasilyev
  • Russian Federation Denis 'seized' Kostin
  • Ukraine Ioann 'Edward' Sukhariev
  • Ukraine Aleksandr 's1mple' Kostyliev
  • Ukraine Daniil 'Zeus' Teslenko
  • Slovakia Ladislav 'GuardiaN' Kovacs (benched)
  • Ukraine Mikhaylo 'Kane' Blagin (coach)


As for Kazakhstan Gambit Gaming:

  • Russian Federation Mihail 'Dosia' Stolyarov
  • Kazakhstan Dauren 'AdreN' Kystaubayev
  • Kazakhstan Rustem 'mou' Telepov
  • Kazakhstan Abay 'HObbit' Khassenov
  • Russian Federation Rustam 'TsaGa' Tsagolov (analyst/coach)
  • Russian Federation Egor 'fuRy^' Morin (manager)
