European Counter-Strike team CR4ZY have been asked to replace Team Vitality at BLAST Pro Series: Moscow 2019, according to multiple sources close to the event. Their participation primarily hinges on acquiring proper visas to enter Russia and compete.
Should CR4ZY acquire everything they need to attend, it would mean they will not participate at the Arctic Invitational in Finland on September 14th. The four-team tournament is scheduled to take place on the same day as the final day of the BLAST event. It is unclear at this time which team would replace CR4ZY or what would happen in the event only three teams remain.
CR4ZY narrowly missed reaching the playoffs of the StarLadder Berlin Major, coming very close to beating Natus Vincere in a best-of-three matchup. This was their first Major tournament as a team due to missing out on IEM Katowice 2019 after a loss to Team Vitality in the European Minor.
BLAST Pro Series: Moscow 2019 is a two-day event, with a $250,000 USD prize pool that has been announced as the final tournament Danylo "Zeus" Teslenko will play as a professional player.
Dexerto was first to report Na’Vi had been looking for replacements for the veteran in-game leader and Na’Vi confirmed his exit with an announcement earlier in the week about his retirement.
