s1mple to return to NAVI for final stage of BLAST Premier Fall Groups 2022

NAVI player Aleksandr "s1mple" Kostyliev will show up in the final part of BLAST Premier Fall Groups 2022. The Ukrainian announced this via his Twitter account, saying that he had already taken off for Copenhagen to the venue of the tournament.

Kostyliev missed the group stage of the ongoing BLAST event for personal reasons. Daniil "headtr1ck" Valitov from NAVI Junior stood in for the star AWPer during his absence.

Together with the young member of the academy, Natus Vincere had a successful run in Group B. After the opening loss from Complexity, the team managed to claim consecutive wins over G2, Complexity and Liquid, which saw them placing first in their quartet.

The victory in Group B secured NAVI the best seed in the decisive stage of the competition, which they will start from the final of their bracket. Next Saturday, August 27, the Black and Yellow will fight for the ticket to BLAST Premier Fall Final 2022 against G2, BIG or Vitality. In case of failure, Denis "electroNic" Sharipov's squad will have one more chance to qualify for this event.

 NAVI will use the following roster in the final stage of BLAST Premier Fall Groups 2022:

 Denis "⁠electroNic⁠" Sharipov
 Ilya "⁠Perfecto⁠" Zalutskiy
 Valeriy "⁠b1t⁠" Vakhovskiy
 Viktor "⁠sdy⁠" Orudzhev
Aleksandr "s1mple" Kostyliev
