Natus Vincere is one of the biggest and most successful teams to have ever played the game of Counter-Strike. Just as the likes of Astralis, NiP, and Gambit they are very focused on establishing a great environment for the young and talented players to prosper and grow in. Natus Vincere has one of the best academy teams in the scene called Navi Junior, and within that roster is one of the most promising talents in CS:GO. He goes by the name of Ilya "m0NESY" Osipov.
"m0NESY" has managed to put up incredible numbers on a consistent basis. In the past three months, he has managed an average rating of 1.31, similar to the likes of "ZywOo" who sits on a rating of 1.26 in the past three months, and "s1mple" who has managed a rating of 1.34 in the latest three months. Whilst it is, of course, very different calibers of opponents the likes of "ZywOo" and "s1mple" are put up against there is no doubt that this young kid could be the next superstar.
It is difficult to imagine Natus Vincere not giving the young "m0NESY" a chance at the big stage if he keeps producing the number he has done for some time now. At the young age of only 16, however, he has more than enough time to grow into an experienced and balanced player before being unleashed as Natus Vincere's new secret weapon. For now, you can take a look at some of the best highlights this incredible prospect has already produced:
