The Russian organization 1WIN has announced the addition of Flamie to his CS: GO Roster.
This move marks the end of the 24-year-old’s two-month break from active play. Flamie was removed from Natus Vincere’s main list in April 2021, but stepped in from time to time to support NAVI Junior, the organization’s academy team. His last stint as part of the young squad was the final of the second season of the WePlay Academy League, where NAVI Junior finished second after losing to MOUZ NXT.
Since then, the academy’s roster has made a few changes, including a young prodigy in the form of m0NESY, which has been taken over by G2 Esports. In the end there seemed to be no more room for Flamie to compete with NAVI Junior.
But now, flamie doesn’t have to worry about not being able to compete in professional sport Counterstrike. 1WIN is a team known for competing in B and C tier tournaments like the Malta Vibes Series and the ESEA Cash Cups, which it often finished in the top three.
Even so, it seems like the inclusion of Flamie wasn’t the end of the squad movement for 1WIN before the coming season of CS: GO. The organization recently put Vadim “Polt” Tsirov and Danil “Ravenlot” Bikvaidze on the bench, which gives them a free place in the active line-up.
1WIN doesn’t have much time to fill the remaining spot on its squad as the team will be competing in Season 40 of the ESL Challenger League: Europe. The tournament, with a place at stake in Season 16 of the ESL Pro League Conference, begins next Tuesday, January 18th.
