The tournament organizer ESL shared the rosters registered for ESL Pro League Season 16. It seems, Ukrainian superstar Oleksandr "S1mple" Kostyliev will rejoin his team Natus Vincere's roster for the event. 

Before that, NAVI are to compete at BLAST Premier Fall Groups, kicking tomorrow, August 19. But the team's star AWPer will be absent and his role will be given to NAVI.Youth member Daniil "Headtr1ck" Valitov. The youngster already has experience competing with the main roster, along with b1t, electroNic, Perfecto and others, as he was a substitute for ex-member Kirill "Bombl4" Mikhailov for a couple of times previously this year.

S1mple is yet to announce his break officially. However, he wished good luck to headtr1ck in the same post in which he promised a "big announcement". BLAST Groups's journey for NAVI starts with a game against Team Liquid. ESL Pro League is set to start on August 31st.
