Na`Vi add seized and kibaken

August 20th, 2013 13:52

Natus Vincere have completed their roster with the additions of two former Begrip Russia members Denis "seized" Kostin and Anton "kibaken" Kolesnikov.

Kostin actually stood in for Na`Vi earlier in the year during the now departed Yegor "markeloff" Markelov's vacation, helping the Ukrainians place 3-4th at RC EMS One Summer Cup #2 after wins over VeryGames and Absolute Legends.

Early on after switching to CS:GO Kostin played for daT team followed up by zNation, prior to teaming up with former Counter-Strike 1.6 Virtus.pro member Kolesnikov in Begrip.

kibaken joins Na`Vi with seized 

The two are now joining forces together with the three remaining Natus Vincere members to fill the holes left by Markelov's and Ioann "Edward" Sukhariev's departures for Astana Dragons.

Natus Vincere had been steadily improving and managed to take three maps away from NiP at SLTV StarSeries VI finals, but a loss to Nostalgie at Prague Challenge led to roster changes in the Ukrainian powerhouse.

Natus Vincere:

Ukraine Arseny "ceh9" Trynozhenko
Russia Anton "kibaken" Kolesnikov
Russia Denis "seized" Kostin
Ukraine Sergey "starix" Ischuk
Ukraine Danilo "Zeus" Teslenko

We caught one of Na`Vi's founding members Trynozhenko, who gave us the following statement to explain their decision to recruit Kostin and Kolesnikov:

"Well, a lot of our fans were waiting to see some huge and famous players in the new Na`Vi squad. But we thought about it a lot, and made what I hope to be the best decision that we could", Trynozhenko told HLTV.org.

"I am glad to introduce you two to very talented and nice guys from ex-zNation team - seized and kibaken. I hope that the power of motivation plus experience of "Na`Vi trinity" will blow the CS:GO scene away and we will show our best game again."

Both Kostin and Kolesnikov also shared their statements at navi-gaming.com. Below are Kostin's thoughts regarding his new opportunity in Natus Vincere:

"Hello everyone, I am incredibly happy to have a chance to play for Na` Vi, as this is the world's best organization and one of the best teams in the history of Counter-Strike. I believe in success of the new lineup and I will do my best for us to achieve it. Hard work is waiting for us", Kostin told navi-gaming.com

The new Na`Vi roster will participate in SLTV StarSeries VII and fnatic FragOut League Season 3 online. Their LAN debut will be DreamHack Bucharest on September 14-15th.

2013-08-20 15:49
I don't think it's a stretch to think they'll be in the top eight (alongside NIP, VG, fnatic, AD, ex-ESC, Cph Wolves and Complexity), but at least at first they will probably be towards the bottom of that list. And of course, this is excluding any new teams formed from the ruins of LDLC, VP, etc. I always hope to be proven wrong by the underdogs though :)

2013-08-20 17:01
...... Couple of semi-pro old cs1.6 players. They might be above average level in CS:GO but they are still not the type of players to give such a burden aka filling the shoes of Markeloff and Edward. I haven't seen either of them play since 1.6 days i do hope they have improved but i highly doubt it. Good luck anyway Na'Vi you will need it big time.

2013-08-20 17:17
Obviously when you compare them side by side, anyone in their right mind would choose markeloff + edward over seized and kibaken. With that said, I don't think seized and kibaken were chosen by the 3 remaining members as "mere replacements" for the two previously departed players, as that is nearly impossible to do given markeloff and edward's skill levels and experience. Rather, I think they are trying to forge a new identity and team structure that will be quite different from what we saw when the two aforementioned players were on the team. While most people are quick to suggest that this lineup has no chance, I think it's possible (emphasis on possible) that they can be as good as the previous lineup or better. We all know that NaVi wasn't nearly as good as they were in their 1.6 days and while they were improving, they still didn't play like a regular top 3 or even top 5 team. And it was easy to blame the three remaining members as the issue. Perhaps change was needed for both sides and this will propel NaVi closer to the top. I think it would certainly be surprising to most of us, but I do think it's possible. This is a different team, not just a poorer version of their previous lineup.

They have potential which makes it very good choice in long term because Na'vi isn't a kind of team that changes player everyday

hahaha.....This is embarrassing. Exchange legendary, scaring two aimers for these "KIDS", who don't even know taste of victory? Na`Vi will get more female fans, cuz they have 2 two pretty pussys in da team.

It's not exchange.It's trying to survive.
