The Russian esports organization forZe revealed that Natus Vincere had approached them, enquiring about their support rifler Evgeniy “FL1T” Lebedev.
The 19-year-old youngster had been speculated as being one of the prime replacements for Ladislav “GuardiaN” Kovacs. But it seems like the Russian organization is not at all interested in parting ways with the talented youngster, as per their TwitLonger post.
As they were against selling the player, the only way another organization could procure the player was by paying the buyout amount, but after forZe had discussed the situation with FL1T personally, it was decided that by the rifler himself that he will be staying with them. They further went on to state the following,
“There were no offers made and no amount named. There was no pressure from us to FL1T or NaVi management. We are asking to stop any speculation and conjecture. The case is closed, glhf.”
The last statement was meant to clarify the statement given by neL via a Tweet, where he stated that forZe was asking Na’Vi for a buyout sum of more than $1.5 Million.
Though forZe has given a straight-up clarification from their side on the whole ordeal, the main question that still bothers everyone is “Who is going to be the fifth player for Na’Vi?”. The last four months with GuardiaN had not panned out as planned, with the Ukranian organization planning to hand the AWP back into the hands of Oleksandr “s1mple” Kostyliev, as they plan on getting their hands on another rifler.
