Natus Vincere has reportedly had to turn their attention to a different CS:GO signing after being quoted an absurd price tag from forZe for Evgeniy ‘FL1T’ Lebedev, according to NeL of 1PV.

Even though their roster holds, arguably, the best Counter-Strike: Global Offensive player in the world, Na’Vi have been unable to break through the stranglehold at the top of the rankings and dominate tournaments. 

After much speculation, the team finally parted ways with Danylo ‘Zeus’ Teslenko back in September, adding former star Ladislav ‘GuardiaN’ Kovács to their ranks. Yet, the reunion of Guardian and s1mple hasn’t quite worked as planned and now the former FaZe Clan star is seemingly set to be replaced, after reports claimed he had been replaced by Na’Vi Juniors player Rodion ‘fear’ Smyk in practice.

S1mple might be the best CSGO player in the world but Na’Vi still lag behind some top teams.

However, it appears as if fear won’t be a permanent addition after the organization has reportedly been in the market to pick up a player from a rival CIS squad.

According to French insider NeL, Na’Vi had turned their attention to forZe’s 21-year-old FL1T, but had been told his full buyout price was somewhere north of 1.5 million dollars. “Na’Vi dropped off and is looking into other options now,” NeL tweeted. “Won’t be a player for forZe nor Gambit for sure.”

Disputing the tweet, the forZe Twitter account fired back with a handful of tweets of their own – responding directly to NeL with a gif of Huell from Breaking Bad taking a nap on a bed of cash. 

They followed that up by issuing a TwitLonger statement on the matter, claiming that Na’Vi had contacted them about a transfer but “there were no offers made and no amount named” and they were looking to “stop any speculation and conjecture.”

Even though CS:GO insiders like NeL have been perfectly sound with their information in the past, teams do dispute their claims – even if the insider’s claims come true eventually.

It remains to be seen what Na’Vi will do to reshape their roster as they could very well dip into their junior team but it appears as if they do want a player with a bit more experience.


Army National Guard CS:GO Missions: How to complete and earn points

As part of the Army’s National Guard Community Challenge, CSGO players competing will have the chance to earn extra points by completing various missions. Here’s how missions work, and how to get them done.

Army National Gaurd

Throughout the duration of the CS:GO community nights and tournaments running until December, you can rack up points for each game you win – while having points deducted for a loss.

But, it’s not just winning or losing you need to worry about – that’s where missions come in. Missions offer an extra opportunity to pick up points.

If you’re not already signed up, make sure to head to our info page for everything you need to get started.

CS:GO Community Night Missions

Missions are a way for players to earn additional rewards for winning matches, by not just winning matches for points but also playing, getting headshots, clutches, bomb defuses, nade kills, etc.

Players will enter a mission challenge and compete against themselves to complete a specific task. If you complete that task, i.e. 3 clutches in a game, you will win points that can be spent on the shop here.

Hometown Soldier Campaign

The Army National Guard started the Hometown Soldier Campaign on November 1, with missions that can be activated by any players with a CS:GO game account.

There are currently two missions that everyone can complete until the end of November:

  • Mission 1: Win 10 matches – 500 points
  • Mission 2: Win 60 matches – 20,000 points

At the end of the month, these missions will be replaced by two more on December 1, which will run until the end of December.

This is all in addition to the bi-weekly tournaments, where players will be ranked on their wins/losses. The top players will proceed to the next stage of the tournament and will be rewarded with points, from a pool of 30,000 – full details here.
