After the benching of Vladyslav "arch" Svistov earlier this month, Natus Vincere has confirmed the replacement ahead of VCT 2022 with none other than Yaroslav "Jady" Nikolaev.

Natus Vincere had entered VALORANT in the late stage of VCT 2021, just before Stage 3, when they signed the orgless team No Pressure. During VCT Stage 3, the team managed to go all the way till the Challengers Finals event which had four slots available to Masters 3 in Berlin. Unfortunately though the team failed to make it through as they lost to Acend and Giants Gaming respectively in the double elimination bracket even though they started very good with a win against Team Liquid in Round 1 of the upper bracket. After VCT, the team failed to capitalize in various events that they participated including three 2nd places in Meta Open Valorant, Finest Invitational and Moscow Cybersport Series #4 - Superfinal.

On the other hand, Jady has played with Ninjas in Pyjamas throughout 2021 including all stages of VCT. Unfortunately the team didn't make an impression against the top level of the EMEA region with the best outcome being a 5th-6th place in Stage 1 Masters and a 3rd-4th place in Stage 2 Challengers 1. During his time with NiP, Jady has played various roles including Sentinel, Initiator and sometimes even Duelist on Reyna. In the past 3 months performances which mainly include the Red Bull Home Ground #2 Qualifier and Main Event the player boosts a 1.06 Rating, 199.4 ACS and 1.11 K/D

With this roster change, Natus Vincere will now field the following players: Mikhail "Duno" Fokin Artur "7ssk7" Kyourshin Denis  "dinkzj" Tkachev Kirill "Cloud" Nehozhin Yaroslav "Jady" Nikolaev
