Rumors: NAVI start training on Vertigo

NAVI started practicing on Vertigo, which they always ban in official matches. The information about this is now spreading among the CS:GO community.

NAVI players and coaches have yet to comment on this rumor. It is also unknown whether the training is a one-off or if the Black and Yellow side intends to add this map to its map pool.

In their history, NAVI have played Vertigo only twice. In 2019, at ESL Pro League Season 9, the roster, which was then led by Danylo "Zeus" Teslenko, lost to Heroic, and a year later, the team suffered a defeat by FaZe at the exhibition tournament Gamers Without Borders 2020.

The rumor about NAVI training on Vertigo came shortly after Denis "electroNic" Sharipov's men advanced to the ESL Pro League Season 16 playoffs. Natus Vincere will start the decisive stage of the prestigious league from the quarterfinals, which will take place on September 27 or 28.
