The Ukrainian organization is set for the next few months.
Natus Vincere will be able to completely focus on its practice for the upcoming CS:GO tournaments with its roster confirmed until the IEM Major Rio 2022.
In a recent interview with NAVI, Andrii "B1ad3" Horodenskyi, who is the CS:GO coach for the side confirmed that Viktor "sdy" Orudzhev was being retained by the Ukrainian esports organization at least till mid-November.
B1ad3 highlighted how NAVI was able to deliver great results along with sdy, winning BLAST Premier: Spring Finals 2022 and placing second at IEM Cologne 2022, "That's why we decided it makes sense to keep going with him as a stand-in."
NAVI CS:GO team to continue playing with sdy until IEM Rio Major 2022
It has been confirmed by NAVI's coach that sdy will continue being a part of NAVI as a stand-in for at least the next three months, potentially representing the side at the IEM Rio Major 2022 following qualification.
B1ad3 did point out that sdy was not fully comfortable in the game which resulted in him making a lot of mistakes, so NAVI was giving him a chance to prove himself even more, "So the idea is to make him reveal more of his potential and get comfortable."
He went on to reveal that NAVI has decided to keep sdy in the team for the next three CS:GO tournaments - BLAST Premier: Fall Groups 2022, ESL Pro League Season 16, and IEM Rio Major 2022.
Following the culmination of these tournaments and after having assessed sdy's performance, a decision will be taken by NAVI.
B1ad3 went on to talk in detail about sdy's performance denying that he was a fast learner because of his age, explaining that he has already developed a lot of his "in-game skills and a solid knowledge base," which is hard to change.
Talking about adapting to NAVI's playstyle, B1ad3 concurred that it was not an easy process and to overcome this sdy needs to play according to the situation.
"He has a job to do in a round, but he should play according to the situation rather than the task he is given," said B1ad3, "He needs to find a way to implement a specific idea in the overall picture."
Pointing out his main mistake, B1ad3 goes on to say that sdy's reaction to certain plays in the game, "it's different, both in terms of decision-making and speed," and the only solution was for him to adjust.
"He has got the drive and motivation and you can tell that he is putting in a lot of effort," expressed B1ad3 while talking about the grind that sdy is going through, "All in all, I can say that he does a really good job in some in-game situations, and if he can make it happen consistently, then it's going to be great."
With the roster for NAVI set in place for the next couple of months, the team can truly put in the work and effort required to achieve results without worrying about other factors.
