Natus Vincere has just announced the retirement of Sergey "starix" Ischuk who will continue his role as a team's coach. Starix will be replaced with Egor "flamie" Vasiliev who just left HellRaisers one day ago.

Natus Vincere's line-up was one of the oldest in the current competitive scene. They hadn't made any changes in the roster since December 2013. With the recent slump in results, it comes as no surprise to see changes being made. Today, the organization announced that Sergey "starix" Ischuk will be stepping down from competitive playing and will continue his role as the team's manager and coach.

This player is the one of the pioneers of our organization. His name will always be shining in the hall of fame of Natus Vincere. Sergey "starix" Ischuk leaves the team line-up. However, he doesn't abandon his work with the team. He'll be performing a new role of the team's manager and coach. - was said on Natus Vincere's official site.

Moreover, Starix's spot will be filled in by Egor "flamie" Vasiliev who will play as a stand-in. Flamie left HellRaisers only one day ago and it was no surprise to see him invited to try out for Na'Vi. Natus Vincere has just finished ESL One Katowice in the 5-8th place slot which secures them a ticket for the next major.

Natus Vincere's line-up:
Ukraine Daniil "Zeus" Teslenko
Ukraine Ioann "Edward" Suharev
Russia Denis "Seized" Kostin
Slovakia Ladislav "GuardiaN" Kovac
Russia Egor "flamie" Vasiliev (stand-in)
