9Pasha joined Natus Vincere

On the official website of the Natus Vincere organization, an announcement of the updated sotsava took place, which included Pavel "9pasha" Hvastunov. In the team, the newcomer will replace Eugene "Blizzy" Ri, who took an indefinite vacation, after which he will begin to look for new career opportunities. Eugene still remains on the contract in the ranks of "Born to Win."

Comment by Evgeny Zolotarev, CEO of Natus Vincere:

“Even before Intom, we decided that we needed to maintain the backbone of the team, and I am very glad that, despite the serious interest in other NAVI players from other clubs, we managed to do it. The only replacement in the roster is in no way connected with the level of Blizzie's game - this is the desire not to miss the opportunity and strengthen the super-experienced player precisely with those human qualities that our young team lacks so much. I’m glad to welcome Pasha to NAVI and sincerely want to thank Zheka for this season and the many pogchamps that he gave us all ”
