Earlier today Natus Vincere announced that Kirill "ANGE1" Karasiow has become a part of its staff as a project manager and therefore gone inactive as a player.
Lately rumors surfaced about Karasiow joining either Na`Vi or Moscow Five as a player, but todays news and his answers in an interview on navi-gaming.com have now put the rumors to rest.
One of his main jobs as part of the organization will be streaming matches for Natus Vincere which should be an interesting option for the CIS viewerbase. He will also launch some so far unannounced projects later on.
When asked why Karasiow chose to leave DTS and whether or not it's connected to joining Natus Vincere or if it's just a problem with motivation, he said the birth of his daughter last month and DTS' problems performing both played a part in it.
He also said he doesn't see himself returning as a player, although he would think a "more than tempting" invitation over, as he thinks it's time to focus on other things in life.
Karasiow first got his breakthrough as a part of HellRaisers with long time teammate Yegor "markeloff" Markelov, and has been widely considered as one of the best Ukrainian players for years.
They have the potential to be the best team of all time if they keep up these results, but they're still too new compared to a team like ESC to say it yet.
I'M WATCHING YOU, CEH9
Coupled with the reports by Ukranians that ceh9 is with NaVi only will IEM world finals, and will be replaced by Ange1 afterwards, it surely seems possible now.
but only STREAMER =\ =\ =\ =\ :/ :/ :/
ANGE1 = SUPER SICK AIM
ANGE1 = SUPER SICK MOVEMENTS
ANGE1 = very smart IGL with pretty good tactics
ANGE1 = streamer?!(whaat?)

Gimme a break ... he's such a great player who can easily be a Na`Vi player.
I remember ANGE1 in HellRaisers with markeloff , that would be amazing to see them together again.

And FFS, ANGE1 isn't just a streamer, he is PROJECT MANAGER which means he will manage some projects, wtf is wrong with you all?
P.S. ANGE1 have daughter.

Na`Vi is indeed a super strong team, not saying otherwise, I just find it funny to see such great player as ANGE1 acting as a manager / streamer in a team he can play for sure.
ceh9 stream !

sorry but i dunno who is streamer.
does it mean screamer? does he motivations teammates? ceh9 is good screamer. he will kill them all in tournament with machinegun.
and ofc in future he might replace some of the 5 if like starix will suck even more
yxo + angel = very smart & interesting stream
