“It is hard to say goodbye to the guys after a year and a half and everything we have gone through together. During this time, they have grown both game-wise and as persons. I am glad that we managed to bring up such wonderful guys: Vanya, Kirill, and Lyosha were the ones with whom the glorious history of juniors began. Their knowledge, motivation, and skills will allow them to strengthen any solid team. For our part, we will do our best to help them all find a new home”.

The eSports athletes have been playing for the club's Academy team since September 2019, when they successfully completed the NAVI Esports Camp qualifying project. The squad's most notable achievement in that time was second place in Week 5 of the Malta Vibes tournament.

It is currently unknown where kapacho, Topa and Gospadarov will continue their careers. The latter joined HellRaisers on February 23 for a test period.
