As you probably know by now, one of the most iconic CS players of all time, Danylo “Zeus” Teslenko, recently announced his retirement from the competitive CS:GO scene. That said, another very important figure in Natus Vincere will also be parting ways with the organization.
According to the official release from the Ukranian organization, Mykhailo “Kane” Blagin will leave the team as soon as the BLAST Pro Series Moscow comes to an end.
This came as a shock to the fans because both the changes happened just a couple of days after StarLadder Berlin Major came to an end. Despite the fact that Na’Vi had a decent run there, they got eliminated by NRG in the quarterfinals.
The talented Ukranian player as a part of Natus Vincere for two years. During his stay, he helped the team in various important tournaments. In fact, he was one of the main reasons for the teams’ success at the FACEIT Major 2019 in London, as well as various other tournaments such as the IEM 2019 in Katowice and more.
Here is his official statement:
Hello, all NAVI fans and people who care about Counter-Strike. Every road has its start and finish — and so my path in the team has come to its end.
I would like to express my gratitude, first of all, to the fans of ours: I felt your support throughout 2 years — a big and sincere thank! I am sad to part ways with the guys who became a part of my life, but such is the work of a coach.
I want to wish the fans to keep calm, the backbone of the team is young guys, and their path is still ahead of them. I am sure the next Major will see the squad fighting for the win. I will be happy to see everyone in Moscow at my last tournament in NAVI uniform.
That said, if you want to dive in the action for yourself, we got you covered!
