➡ The former FunPlus Phoenix team will now compete for Natus Vincere.

For their 2023 season, Natus Vincere has just acquired one of the best rosters in 2022. The group just revealed that they have taken on the majority of the FunPlus Phoenix roster that was fired yesterday.

The same team that missed the first Masters of 2022 due to travel logistics and the war in Ukraine went on to win Masters Copenhagen in their very first international competition.

After the news of their release by the team was made public, the FPX roster became one of the more sought-after rosters.

A partnership with FPX in the EMEA league was unsuccessful.

The following names will be on the updated roster:

Dmitry “SUYGETSU” Ilyusin
Pontus “Zyppan” Eek
Kirill “ANGE1” Karasiow
Andrey “Shao ” Kiprsky
Mehmet Yağız “cNed” İpek

Ardis “ardiis” Svarenieks, the only person absent from the lineup, will continue his career in a different area. He’s rumored to be moving to Los Angeles to work for NRG Esports.

He is succeeded by cNed, a former employee of Acend.


He was a member of the group that won Acend’s first Champions in 2021 and is another powerful player.

Oleksii “xaoc” Kuchero, the NAVI COO, said to Dexerto:

We aim for the highest result in every competition, so doing our best is a consistent approach for us. Our previous team didn’t deliver tier-one results in 2022, even though we had very close games almost every time.

At the same time, FPX’s former roster proved itself the best in EMEA in 2022, and it was really tempting for us to acquire them.

We have also known the team’s IGL, ANGE1, for about 20 years, and are confident that his skills as a captain will help us achieve top results. A good IGL is absolutely essential for success

The kick-off tournament, which is scheduled to take place in Sao Paolo in February 2023, will mark the debut of the new roster.


Will the new roster help VALORANT NAVI achieve the same level of success as CSGO NAVI?
