A return to coaching may be on the agenda for Andriy “B1ad3” Gorodenskiy. According to a report from Dexerto, B1ad3 is being “heavily” considered for the coaching role with Natus Vincere.
The spot became vacant (almost) following the recent news that Mikhaylo “Kane” Blagin would be leaving the organization in conjunction with Danylo “Zeus” Teslenko who revealed his plans to retire on Monday. BLAST Pro Series Moscow, which kicks off tomorrow, will be the final event for both the in-game leader and coach.
B1ad3 currently serves as the Esports Director of Natus Vincere, a position he took on in March, 2019. Neither he nor several of the current players are unfamiliar with B1ad3 in a leadership capacity as he played with both Oleksandr “s1mple” Kostyliev and Denis “electronic” Sharipov at different times as a member of FlipSid3 Tactics.
In terms of Zeus’ replacement, it is highly expected that Ladislav “GuardiaN” Kovács will be filling in, moving Kirill “Boombl4” Mikhailov to the in-game leader role. GuardiaN had played under Na’Vi for years prior to leaving the organization in 2017.
Expected Natus Vincere CS:GO roster following BLAST Pro Series Moscow:
- Oleksandr “s1mple” Kostyliev
- Egor “flamie” Vasilev
- Denis “electronic” Shairpov
- Kirill “Boombl4″ Mikhailov
- Ladislav “GuardiaN” Kovács
- Andriy “B1ad3″ Gorodenskiy
