Natus Vincere has announced that it is no longer working with Egor “flamie” Vasilyev, ending a partnership that lasted for over six years.
According to Natus Vincere’s COO, Aleksey “xaoc” Kucherov, they made the decision due to the team’s recent success and the RMR system’s specifics, which effectively don’t allow a sixth player on the roster any longer. However, despite the difficult decision, Kucherov continued to praise flamie, saying: “Despite the fact that Egor has served in the NAVI programme for many years, he is young, enthusiastic, and well-versed. In order to be successful, teams must possess these qualities.”

The Natus Vincere team released a “tribute movie” to flamie in honour of his time with the group. Flamie tweeted her reaction to the film, writing, “It was a beautiful 6 years that i’ll never forget.”
