Byron “Blurr” Murray rejoins Natus Vincere esports club, leaving British organization MnM Gaming behind. But this time he will be joining the team on a permanent basis.
Byron “Blurr” Murray first joined Na’Vi as a stand-in between the Six Invitational and the end of PL season 11 while Doki was banned from competitive play for toxic in-game behavior. In his time at Na’Vi, Blurr aided the team on finishing at fourth place in PL S11 (was at 6th place when he joined the team).
Before joining Na’Vi, Blurr won Italian national champion while playing for Mkers and competed in the ESL Premiership three times- finishing fifth, sixth, and most recently finished the season as runners up with MnM Gaming.
Na’Vi recently decided to change up their core playstyle with the exit of both Panix and Nelo earlier this month, and now Blurr will be taking one of those place.
Here’s what Byron “Blurr” Murray had to say about this announcement:
I am incredibly happy that I have the chance to play in such a strong roster on a full-time basis. I would like to thank the club and the players for this opportunity.
I look forward to the second stage of the European League to show everyone how good our team can play in the new squad. I am confident you will not be disappointed!
NAVI’s R6S manager “N1ghtEnd” also explained:
“We don’t have that many opportunities to qualify for the Six Invitational this year. The team doesn’t want to miss the World Championship and decided to take certain risks: in the off-season we have agreed that Saves, Kendrew and Doki have sufficient experience, they share the club’s philosophy and values and are ready to share them with the new players.
Thus, when selecting players for vacant positions, we primarily gave our preference to young talents who have little experience in performing at a serious level but are very eager for major victories.
One of these newcomers is Blurr. We have nothing but positive experience from working with him in the last season of the Pro League. I am happy to welcome Byron among the Born to Win, however, this time on a permanent basis!
I would also like to thank the managers of the MnM Gaming, who cooperated with us and made this transfer happen.”
