B1ad3: "I hope s1mple returns on Monday. We're still deciding"

In an interview with the organizers of BLAST Premier Fall Groups 2022, NAVI coach Andrey "B1ad3" Gorodenskiy has disclosed a possible timing for return to the roster of Alexandr "s1mple" Kostyliev, who missed the start of the competition for unnamed reasons. The specialist hopes that the star AWPer will join the team on Monday, August 22, but this information has not yet been confirmed.

How much practice time will we be able to get when s1mple returns? Maybe two hours, I think. I'm serious. I hope he returns on Monday, August 22, but looks like maybe not. We're still deciding.

NAVI started the ongoing BLAST event with a defeat from Complexity. B1ad3 believes that the tournament's format makes it possible to bounce back even after several failures.

That's something that happened at BLAST Premier Spring Groups 2022. We lost to MIBR and Astralis, then we won Liquid, then lost to NIP and then beat NIP again. I like this system.

NAVI currently continue to compete in Group B at BLAST Premier Fall Groups 2022. Following the results of the matchday, the team will get a seed in the next stage of the tournament. You can follow up on the event in CSGO.com's match center via this link.
