One day after Oleksandr "s1mple" Kostyliev and Egor "flamie" Vasilyev were reportedly in talks about joining SK Gaming, Natus Vincere's CEO said the two players will remain with their current team.

The report from yesterday said s1mple and flamie were in talks to replace Epitácio "TACO" de Melo and Ricardo "boltz" Prass on SK Gaming. Later that day, TACO ​announced his departure from the team, which only strengthened the link between SK and the Na'Vi players.

The Na'Vi CEO did not deny the report, simply stating on Twitter that the two players will remain with their current organization. Who knows how close the move was to happening, but it appears all the commotion was for naught.
