According to ‘OverDrive’ from HLTV, G2 esports are considering the signing of 16-year-old AWPer Ilya ‘mONESY’ Osipov. mONESY was signed by NaVi more than 2 years ago and has been part of their academy roster ever since. He has been part of FPL – Faceit Pro League, a hub for pro players and the best players on faceit to play together and has been doing great against players much older and more experienced than him.
Recently, in a report by dexerto and 1pv.fr it was reported that NaVi is open to offers for the Russian. This comes off the back of NaVi’s runner up finish in the second season of WePlay Academy League which took place on LAN. mONESY had an impressive performance there too and said in an interview that he was tier 1. And his stats justify that statement as he has been a cut above everyone else against the oppositions they have played.
Recently G2 esports players have been teasing about how mONESY is a good player (but was later deleted) and mONESY himself posted a story on instagram saying ‘The time has come’. Shortly after this it was reported that NaVi was considering offers for him.
OverDrive has been an expert about CIS Counter Strike for many a year. He was the first one to break the news that SANJI would eventually leave VP and also about FL1T’s move to VP right before the major.
If the talks succeed we may see mONESY in a G2 esports jersey soon enough. But who he will replace remains to be seen as both JaCkz and AmaNEk have been doing their job well, but mONESY might be the final piece of the puzzle they need to get their hands on a trophy.
