The CIS Counter-Strike:Global Offensive Natus Vincere has announced the return of two players.
The two in questions are Denis 'seized' Kostin and their former In Game Leader Daniil 'Zeus' Teslenko.
Along side Zeus, former Gambit Gaming coach, Mikhaylo 'Kane' Blagin will be the new coach for Natus Vincere.
It seems that the guys over at Gambit Gaming wanted to remove 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 Natus Vincere 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, Zeus made an interview with the guys over at the leading eSports news site, hltv.org where he went over the problems Gambit Gaming had right before and after the Major.
Also on a long tweet, 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:
