CS:GO Navi Chooses “b1t” For Their Five-man Lineup At RMR Tournaments

Avatar

Published

Egor “flamie” Vasilev will be left out of RMR tournaments and DreamHack Masters Spring 2021.


Natus Vincere will be performing at the upcoming RMR tournaments with a change in its roster, due to the player-change penalty rules established by Valve. The team has announced through Twitter that they are moving away from the six-man roster approach to adhere to Valve’s new rules. Because of this, Egor “flamie” Vasilev will be left out of their roster for the upcoming RMR (Regional Major Ranking) tournaments and DreamHack Masters Spring 2021. On the other hand, Valeriy “b1t” Vakhovskiy will hold a permanent position on the team.

Flamie out, B1t in

Due to Valve rules stipulating penalties for using substitute players, NaVi’s rotating six-player roster was put in question. A team found in violation has to undergo a compounding penalty of 20% of the points earned at the event if they substitute at least one player during the tournament. In response, Na’Vi has said “Valve made it clear that they do not intend to change the rules. Na’Vi needs as many points as possible to qualify for the Major. In this regard, the team had to coordinate the final roster for the next tournament to avoid penalty points.”

Na’Vi will prepare for their upcoming challenges at a boot camp in Kyiv, Ukraine, from April 11-24. DreamHack Masters Spring, their first focus, will be held between April 29 and May 9. The later CIS RMR tournament is expected to take place in May, around the same time as the European and the North American tournaments. “Despite this, DreamHack is still an important tournament for NAVI,” the organization noted.

The decision to opt for b1t over flamie was not explained in detail. But the team’s coach, Andrii “B1ad3” Gorodenskyi, will be providing clarification in a YouTube video to be posted “next week.”

NaVi roster for DreamHack Spring:

  • Oleksandr ‘s1mple‘ Kostyliev
  • Denis ‘electronic‘ Sharipov
  • Ilya ‘Perfecto‘ Zalutskiy
  • Kirill ‘BoombI4‘ Mikhailov
  • Valeriy ‘b1t‘ Vakhovskiy
  • Andrii ‘B1ad3‘ Gorodenskyi (coach)

CoD: Players Call For Warzone HUD Update In Season 3

Teamwork in Warzone can be hard, but this Reddit user may have solved all our problems.


It’s been just over a year since the release of Warzone, and while many players team up with a regular squad, some like to play with randoms online. In both scenarios, communication between your team can be hard, and Warzone’s UI does nothing to help that.

Well, Reddit user Abood_Abuoaid has created a new mockup for the Warzone UI, showing each player’s scorestreaks, plates, gas mask, etc.

this could be very helpful from CODWarzone

With over 5.5k Upvotes at the time of writing, this has proved to be very popular, with many players calling for the update to come soon. Warzone already shows if players have self revive, so adding the other icons shouldn’t be too much hassle for the developers.

This little addition to the Warzone UI would change the game drastically. Teamwork would be much easier, and the leader of the squad who’s always checking up on their teammates’ plate/UAV situation wouldn’t have to keep asking.

If we see this update, it’s likely to come with the Warzone map change that is rumored to happen soon. With a move to a Black Ops Cold War-themed Verdansk, many players will be excited to see what arrives in the coming months.
