Benched NAVI Junior Aunkere Talks About Possible Transfer to European CS:GO Team
Another player from NAVI's academy team might soon find a new home.
Natus Vincere (NAVI) may not won a lot of trophies with its academy team NAVI Junior, but it has become one of the biggest breeding grounds for the new generation of CS:GO stars.
The first to get promoted was Valerii "b1t" Vakhovskyi who found a permanent place in NAVI's main roster itself, followed by the high profile transfer of Ilya "m0NESY" Osipov transfer to G2 Esports. Now Evgeniy "Aunkere" Karyat has revealed that he might be on his way over to a European team in a few months time.
The 21-year-old who is currently a part of NAVI Junior's inactive roster, in a recent Twitch stream claimed that he is in contact with "a man from Europe" and that everyone will go nuts when they find out what the offer is.
NAVI academy CS:GO player Aunkere talks about a possible transfer to a European team
Former active NAVI Junior player, Aunkere, in a recent Twitch stream revealed that he was speaking to someone from Europe about a possible buyout.
"He wrote to me that perhaps this month they will think about my contract and buying me out of NAVI based on it," said Aunkere as he further went on to state that "All information about the organization itself will appear in May. I think you will go nuts when you find out what the offer is."
In 2021, Aunkere had an overall HLTV rating of 1.16 with an Impact Rating of 1.17 and ADR (Average Damage per Round) of 82.1 and a KPR (Kills Per Round) of 0.76, making him an effective rifler. This will be the third graduate out of NAVI's academy CS:GO team if the deal actually comes through, following b1t and m0NESY.
The first one to move out of NAVI Junior was b1t who found a permanent place in the main roster of NAVI, replacing Egor "flamie" Vasilyev and turning the fortune around for the Ukrainian roster. B1t along with NAVI had the best year ever for a professional CS:GO team.
Next in line was m0NESY, the Russian prodigy who is touted as 'future s1mple' was signed by G2 Esports for a reported sum of about $600,000 USD and has already shown what a valuable asset he is for the side.
It will be interesting to see how good of a player can Aunkere turn out to be for the side that decides to pick him up, as he has already shown that he bears potential.
