On 26 September Ukraine NaVi.G2A begin their performance at EPICENTER 2017. In the first match of the group stage the Born to Win will encounter Russian Federation forZe. The match will be held in best of 3 and will begin at 16:00 CEST.


The following teams will participate in the qualifiers of the tournament: Ukraine Natus Vincere, Russian Federation Team Spirit, CIS FlipSid3, Kazakhstan Avangar, Russian Federation forZe and Russian Federation Vega Squadron got direct invites and two teams passed open qualifiers: Russian Federation Quantum Bellator Fire and Russian Federation Spirit Academy.


Within the framework of the qualifiers, the teams will pass two stages: group stage and playoff. The group stage will be GSL, only 2 teams of each group will advance to the playoff. Ukraine Natus Vincere seeded to group А, along with Russian Federation Team Spirit, Russian Federation forZe and Russian Federation Quantum Bellator Fire. As concerns group B, its first games have already been played. The participants are CIS FlipSid3, Kazakhstan Avangar, Russian Federation Vega Squadron and Russian Federation Spirit Academy.


As a reminder: the winner of the closed qualifier won't get to the main part of the tournament, but gets the chance in the Wild Card to fight against the winners of other regional qualifiers for one of the two slots in the main stage to be held in Saint Petersburg. We hope Ukraine NaVi will easily pass this qualifier stage and will earn the place in the Wild Card EPICENTER 2017! #gonavi
