B1ad3 confirms sdy will stay until the Rio Major

The 25-year-old will remain with the squad for at least the next three months.

Natus Vincere coach Andrey "⁠B1ad3⁠" Gorodenskiy confirmed that Viktor "⁠sdy⁠" Orudzhev will remain with the squad for the foreseeable future, with the Ukrainian rifler set to play for the organization at the IEM Rio Major in November.

In an interview published by Natus Vincere on YouTube, the coach reflected on IEM Cologne 2022, the team's loss in the final against FaZe, and the future of the roster going into the new season.

sdy will remain with NAVI for the next three months

When asked about the future of the roster, the Natus Vincere coach acknowledged the team's good performances with sdy: "We've produced some pretty good results with sdy, placing second in Cologne and winning BLAST, which is not too shabby," he stated. "That's why we decided it makes sense to keep going with him as a stand-in."

"The next tournaments are BLAST, EPL, and the next Major and we're planning to keep Vitya for these and then decide what to do," B1ad3 stated, confirming that sdy's future in the squad will depend on the performances in the next three months.

B1ad3 then proceeded to talk about the rifler's individual performance and development, admitting that the player could improve his reactions and decision-making in-game: "His main issue is probably his reaction to certain plays in-game - it's different both in terms of decision-making and speed."

However, the coach concluded by saying that: "It's possible [for sdy] to adapt and get better but it takes time. All in all, I can say that he does a really good job in some in-game situations."

"If Vitya [sdy] can improve his game, adjust to our playstyle and get better, but not even as good as we want him to, we can win tournaments."

sdy joined Natus Vincere in June, replacing Kirill "⁠Boombl4⁠" Mikhailov following the in-game leader's departure from the active lineup, citing "high reputational risks for the club." The rifler arrived on a free loan deal with MAD Lions as the organization had shut down their CS:GO division just a few months prior.

Together with the 25-year-old rifler, the Ukrainian-based organization reached back-to-back grand finals at BLAST Premier Spring Finals and IEM Cologne, taking a trophy from the former and falling to FaZe after a five-map thriller in Germany.

Natus Vincere's roster for the next three months will be:

Russia Denis "⁠electroNic⁠" Sharipov
Russia Ilya "⁠Perfecto⁠" Zalutskiy
Ukraine Aleksandr "⁠s1mple⁠" Kostyliev
Ukraine Valeriy "⁠b1t⁠" Vakhovskiy
Ukraine Viktor "⁠sdy⁠" Orudzhev

Ukraine Andrey "⁠B1ad3⁠" Gorodenskiy (coach)

All these are just garbage excuses. At the end of the day FaZe won and it's all that matters and all that will be remembered. No one cares how close it was except hurt fans like you. If it was the other way around I wouldn't be making excuses for faze losing a "close" finals. I would admit Na'Vi are the best if they made it happen. Are the teams close? yes, but FaZe are better until proven otherwise. If navi "gave up on rounds in t side inferno" thats on them. The winner takes it all.

Well.. "what if" sorta sounds like excuses. Anyways thats good.. we can agree FaZe is the best then lol, although it's really close between them and Na'Vi.
2022-08-04 20:29
FaZe was better at Cologne i don’t think people are disputing But the other guy above is acting like NaVi is super bad or NaVi is throwing, that’s why all these responses are like this, because idiot guy is saying NaVi is bad when they’re clearly very close to FaZe, like if NaVi is bad then FaZe is very close to also being bad?? The krixen guy 0/8
2022-08-04 21:35
if faze didnt choked that eco it would be blowout on inferno if faze didnt choked that 1v1 and other rounds on overpass it would be 2-0 it is pointless to say "navi were 2 rounds away from winning" when it can be said same for faze

yes, let them lose one more major, s1mple retire, and navi won't ever win any major again this guy played in mad lions, he had like 0.99 rating vs t3, do you really think he is good enough for navi level? No bro, I watched sooo many navi games, and I already have the experience to tell that this won't work, just look at FaZe not a single weak point, all their players are solid t1 players. Good if sdy was like JacKZ. full team player, gives solid entries on t when needed, no, he is not, if boombl4 was the impact guy on t side, sdy is not, he is always last, and the most obvious reason is his reaction time, it's really slow, for a pro player.

Why angry? Is this bait? Read my reply again, i said yes sdy needs to improve, and sdy has been in t1 for two tournaments and done the same as he did in t3 according to u (too lazy to check stats), so what is t1=t3? He can improve, and if he can’t then he’ll be gone, because the other 4 NaVi players aren’t going anywhere and they’re too good not to be title contenders no matter who the 5th is

But he already performed the same in t1 as he was before, is what i was saying. They are not in contention for making their own era right now, but they are in contention to stop FaZe, and they’ve got to do that first anyways before they can be #1 and then make an era

Yekindar would’ve made NaVi by far the strongest firepower of any team, pray for that for NaVi to be clear top1 because yeah no other player could do it Its honestly still debatable if NaVi has the strongest firepower, but b1t has been on the downswing lately so probably FaZe has them beat at the moment I feel like you really don’t understand the situation with NaVi, they were totally fine until the war and even now after they are recovering and placing top2 with sdy, they are still definitely worth watching if they improve even a little they can be #1

That might make sense for Navi but not for Yekindar. He will be leaving so much money on the table by sitting on the bench and waiting for Navi.

For me it's hard that they still trial him, I kinda pity the guy. Guess they simply don't really want him.

he is not S tier player, that's why they are hesitant, they want to dominate as long as they have s1mple in the team who is very ambitious. if it wasn't s1mple they would give him contract

"improve his game, adjust to our playstyle and get better" well, that sounds like he has to do a lot :) good luck!

true. there was also another another point from blade that guys missed. He told that the scene allows them to win tournaments with this level, but if there are more teams like faze it would be hard. He ment that NaVi was not good but overall level of cs t1 teams also dropped
