After mediocre results in recent tournaments, Na’Vi has decided to let go of their current Dota 2 roster. However, Natus Vincere has stated that “[it] is not the end of the road for Na`Vi in Dota 2 as we won’t give-up so easily on the game we all love. In the coming week, we will make a few announcements regarding our new Dota 2 line-up.”
Natus Vincere, the infamous Ukrainian team, has left an impressive mark across most competitive eSports games. Na`Vi was the first team to win The International in 2011 held at Cologne, Germany with a $1,000,000 prize-pool.
“Na`Vi has also participated in three consecutive grand finals of The International; a feat no other organization has managed to achieve to this day. Fast forward to the year 2014, and we see Na`Vi’s fortune starting to dwindle with less than satisfactory performance at The International 2014 which only got worse with time. Post TI4, we entered a rough patch as we began to see frequent changes to our Dota 2 line-up leading all the way to The International 2015.”
“However, recently the team was unable to qualify for the Frankfurt Fall Major 2015 despite tremendous efforts from the players and this led us to a point where we had to make one of the hardest decisions ever; to let go of our Dota 2 team. Yes folks, you heard it right. Natus Vincere has officially decided to part ways with its current Dota 2 line-up.”
“This can come as a shock to our fans, but we believe this is a step in the right direction. We would also like to extend our sincere gratitude to Dendi, XBOCT, Funn1k, SoNNeikO and PSM for being an important part of Na`Vi. It was a pleasure and an honor to have all of you onboard with us, some of you for many years.”
Comment by Natus Vincere’s COO Igor “caff” Sydorenko:
“After the protracted series of failures of our team, we have to take measures and with hard feelings fully disband the squad. On behalf of all the fans and Na`Vi staff I express gratitude to the guys for their work and emotions, which they’ve granted to us all the time. However, sooner or later, the time of old heroes passes. The fate gives us new challenges, which we need to accept and prove that Na`Vi is a team of champions.
