Natus Vincere has announced that it has made some major changes to its Dota 2 squad following "unsatisfactory results." The players confirmed to have been released are Vladyslav "Crystalize" Krystanek, Pavel "9pasha" Khvastunov, and Nikita "young G" Bochko. It was also revealed that coach, Andrey "Mag" Chipenko, would be exiting the line-up.
The blog post also reveals that the team is already considering candidates to replace Mag as coach, and will be looking to assemble the line-up on a "step-by-step" basis. We'd say that this is wise is it allows the team to see whether players are a good fit before taking them on as a committed member.
Aleksey "xaoc" Kucherov, COO of Natus Vincere, said: "I'm a huge fan of Dota and the best reward for me as a fan is to witness beautiful triumphs of the guys you cheer for and work with. We are certain that hard work pays off but this time, despite the given time and credit of trust of the club, unfortunately, it did not work out."
He further added: "I agree with the fans of the club, who want radical changes. Today we are starting to restructure the roster and we are looking for various opportunities and solutions that we will consider in the coming months to come up with the best possible option."
