The HLTV Confirmed talk show is back after a one-week break, with plenty of tournament results and roster news to catch up on. Natus Vincere‘s fourth-place finish in IEM New York CIS and Vitality‘s fourth silver medal of the year will be key talking points, as will the rumor of Nikola “NiKo” Kovač going to G2 and news of MIBR‘s new lineup.
Joining the show to give his insight will be Owen “smooya” Butterfield, who will also touch on his time with c0ntact, where he played as a rifle-AWP hybrid, and talk about the UK players and teams finally finding some success.
