The Ukrainian organization Natus Vincere has announced replacements for Danylo "Zeus" Teslenko and Mykhailo "kane" Blagin, who left their CS:GO roster after BLAST Pro Series: Moscow 2019. Ladislav "GuardiaN" Kovács is back to the team, while Andrii "B1ad3" Horodenskyi is the team’s new coach.
As GuardiaN becomes the main AWPer of the team, Oleksandr "s1mple" Kostyliev will move to the rifler position and also become the outside of the game leader, focusing on discipline and team atmosphere. The team’s new in-game leader is the recently signed Kirill "Boombl4" Mikhailov, who used to be a captain in his former team Winstrike.
GuardiaN was part of Natus Vincere between 2013 and 2017, winning multiple premier events. In the last two years the Slovakian player has been playing for FaZe Clan. Andrey "B1ad3" Gorodenskiy joined Natus Vincere this March as an esports director. Earlier he worked as a coach for Gambit Esports and FlipSid3 Tactics.
