Edward's selectah submit lineup for Nine to Five 2 tournament
The Ukrainian veteran will be surrounded by young players in the $50,000 online tournament.
Relog Media has announced the lineup that selectah will field in the upcoming Nine to Five 2 tournament. Besides former NAVI member Ioann "Edward" Sukhariev, Savelii "jmqa" Bragin, who was part of the Quantum Bellator Fire team that reached the playoffs at ELEAGUE Major Boston, is the other standout member of the CIS-based team for this $50,000 competition.
Edward stepped down from Natus Vincere in May 2019 to make way for the arrival of Kirill "Boombl4" Mikhailov and was subsequently loaned out to Winstrike. He ended up returning to NAVI after four disappointing months and has been on the team's bench since then.
The 32-year-old will also be competing in the recently-announced showmatch between NAVI's iconic 2010 roster and the organisation's current team, scheduled for August 1. The two teams will square off over six maps, three in CS 1.6 and three in CS:GO.
Rounding out the roster are three relatively unknown players with little competitive experience: Russian duo Roman "tappa" Medvedev and Danil "Raven" Bikvaidze, and Lithuanian player Justinas "jL" Lekavicius.
Though this will be the first tournament for the selectah roster, the team has already gone through two different iterations, competing in the two qualifiers for the CIS-based CTRL PLAY LEAGUE with players like Aurimas "Kvik" Kvakšys and Sergey "smike" Sklyarenko. On both occasions, the team was eliminated before the quarter-finals.
Nine to Five 2 will run from July 27 to August 5 and will begin with a Swiss stage, followed by the single-elimination playoffs. The tournament will feature three teams currently inside the top 30, including world No 10 Complexity and the winner of the first edition, Gambit Youngsters.
selectah will field the following line-up in the tournament:
