s1mple will be absent at IEM Sydney 2023

Natus Vincere player s1mple will miss the first CS2 tournament because of problems with documents. The player has not yet received a residence permit in Europe, so if he flew to Sydney, he would not be allowed to come back.

Natus Vincere played in Group “A”, where they defeated Apeks team with a score of 1:0. But in the match with MOUZ the team lost with the score 1:2. The team coach was replaced by B1ad3 instead of s1mple.

IEM Sydney takes place in Australia from October 16 to 22. 16 teams are competing for $250,000 and a place at IEM Katowice 2024.
