AVANGAR rule out roster changes after Major success

AVANGAR have guaranteed that their roster will remain intact after their dream run at the StarLadder Major.

The Kazakhstani side surpassed anyone's wildest expectations in Berlin as they reached the grand final of the Major – beating the likes of Liquid, Vitality and Renegades along the way –, before being clobbered by Astralis in a one-sided affair.

With Natus Vincere on the lookout for a new player as Danylo "⁠Zeus⁠" Teslenko is heading towards retirement, it has been speculated that AVANGAR could become a feeder team for the Russian side, with Dzhami "⁠Jame⁠" Ali, Alexey "⁠qikert⁠" Golubev and Timur "⁠buster⁠" Tulepov having all raised eyebrows in Berlin.

AVANGAR insist that no players will leave the team

But in a Twitter post, AVANGAR issued a hands-off warning, ensuring that they will not entertain any offers for their prized players.

"AVANGAR will keep its roster and with this goal we will move on to victory," the organisation wrote on Twitter.

In an interview prior to the grand final, qikert revealed that he was "happy" that he did not join Natus Vincere at the start of the year when the team was "having struggles with Edward". Na`Vi would go on to recruit Kirill "⁠Boombl4⁠" Mikhailov, who is expected to take over as in-game leader following Zeus' retirement.

respect to them, be like virtus pro and stick together for a long time, no roster changes, success will come. just look at the french scene, constantly changing round the same few players and there is a spike in success then a slump. then roster changes then the cycle continues. Respect to avangar hope they all stick together and grow from this

This top2 is biggest fluke in cs:go history playing in play off against underperformed Vitality and Renegades ,while Astralis were playing against best team - Liquid,NRG.Don`t get me wrong and i like Buster,Jame,qikert, but srsly i don`t see this team in top10 during a year long,best option for this trio is to join Na`Vi instead of flamie and Boomb14.

Sorry i dont think that they need to stick together. Their run was a fluke. Ence camp failed themselves at the playoffs. Vitality as well although jame with his snake patience gamestyle annoying got them through riding on the struggles of vitality. Renegades was a solid win. Thats it. You can see avangar now maybe stably coming out of the groupstages when they are lucky nothing more then that. Its logical that emotionally themselves and the org feel this way but some players of avangar have a more stable future and more higher peaks within na'vi.
