Natus Vincere have replaced Anton "kibaken" Kolesnikov and Arseny "ceh9" Trynozhenko with Ladislav "GuardiaN" Kovács and Ioann "Edward" Sukhariev.
Natus Vincere have been struggling ever since their switch to Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. They had to deal with two departures in the form of Sukhariev and Yegor "markeloff" Markelov, who joined Astana Dragons in mid July.
After the two changes, after reaching semi-finals at DreamHack Bucharest in September, the team have recently disappointed by failing to proceed through the group stage of the biggest event of the year, as they lost to fnatic and LGB eSports in Group A of DreamHack Winter.
GuardiaN found a stable team after five months
Today the organization announced that they will be parting ways with Kolesnikov and a long-time member Trynozhenko, who will be replaced by Kovács and Sukhariev, who was told goodbye by Astana Dragons only a month ago.
Kovács has been without an official team ever since Virtus.pro's dismissal, although he has been trying to form new lineups, one of which couldn't make it past Reason Gaming in DreamHack Winter BYOC qualifier.
Natus Vincere now are:
Danylo "Zeus" Teslenko
Sergey "starix" Ischuk
Denis "seized" Kostin
Ioann "Edward" Sukhariev
Ladislav "GuardiaN" Kovács
The team are currently sitting at 9th place of the league with fourteen points from eight matches, and today's matches when the new lineup will debut will be crucial for the team to have a chance to proceed to the LAN finals.
