NAVI will not compete at the BLAST Premier Spring Final

Ukrainian team Natus Vincere (NAVI) has withdrawn from the upcoming BLAST Premier Spring Final, after the team's roster encountered visa-related issues.

Complexity Gaming to replace NAVI at BLAST Premier Spring Final

That's according to a tweet from BLAST, who revealed that "due to visa issues, NAVI will unfortunately be unable to compete in the upcoming BLAST Premier Spring Final in Washington DC next month (June 7-11)."

 The BLAST rulebook stipulates that since NAVI  qualified through the Spring Groups and withdrew after the showdown, the team replacing them will be "the runner-up from the Last Chance portion of the Groups." As such, BLAST has instead invited Complexity Gaming to compete in next month's tournament.

It's a disappointing turn of events for NAVI, who are no doubt keen to compete and prove themselves once again after a disappointing performance in the Paris Major. Despite high expectations, the Ukrainian team failed to reach the playoffs of the final CS:GO major, after being eliminated by FaZe Clan - ending their Major run in 9th-11th place.

Though Complexity Gaming hardly fared much better in Paris, ending the tournament in 20th - 22nd place, after being eliminated through their 0-2 loss to Team Liquid.  

It's going to be a packed schedule for Complexity, who will be heading to the Spring Final fresh from their appearance in IEM Dallas, which is due to take place from May 29 - June 4.

The BLAST Premier Spring Final, meanwhile, is due to take place from June 7-11, and will see Complexity Gaming (alongside 7 other teams) competing for their share of the $425,000 prize pool, with the ultimate winner receiving $200,000, alongside a qualification to the BLAST Premier World Final.
