The 22-year old prodigy, Denis "seized" Kostin, had had a rough period in Na'Vi prior to the benching decision. Kostin was benched a couple of days after the PGL Major Krakow but has now been awarded a second chance as they re-inaugurated their once beloved leader, Danylo "Zeus" Teslenko.
Teslenko did not follow the same pattern as his counterpart, he did the polar opposite when he managed to convert the downfall of Gambit into a top tier winning machine. After going triumphantly out of the major, he proved more than worthy of the team that once left him hanging.
According to speculations
, the transfer to the Ukranian organization was secured two months prior to the contract end. Zeus is said to have had internal conflicts with the Gambit organization and therefore left the team after the majority's decision to kick the coach.
Together with Zeus, the previous Gambit coach Blagin will also join Natus Vincere. Blagin is a good friend of Zeus
and was one of the key parts in the above-mentioned conflicts. Zeus has now seemingly decided to give Natus Vincere another chance after he previously got dropped by the team of his life
