Natus Vincere captain Alexey "Solo" Berezin talked about Ivan "Artstyle" Antonov whereabouts and confirmed rumors that PuckChamp is related to NAVI. He shared this information on podcast "Туманная аналитика".
Us and ArtStyle went different paths after the first DPC season. He was working with PuckChamp and continues doing so. Overall, that's what he does in the organization. You know, PuckChamp is under NAVI wing and all. Or at least that was the case back then. I don't know the current situation, our paths doesn't cross. We basically stopped talking with Ivan.
The rumors that PC is somehow connected to Natus Vincere appeared in the end of 2021. Telegram channel CYBERSLOVO reported that if PuckChamp will show good results in the DPC league, the Ukrainian organization will sign the team. In the beginning of 2022 the fans also noticed players were playing DPC matches from NAVI facility.
Earlier four members of PuckChamp were kicked from the team. Andrey "Dukalis" Kuropatkin, Genadiy "Astral" Motuz, Alexandr "krylat" Krylatov, and coach Stanislav "чикиряу" Yarosevich. The change came after a streak of disappointing results. The team fell to the Lower Division of EEU DPC at the end of Tour 2, and then didn't qualify to the Upper Division, finishing the season at 4 place.
