ESports club Natus Vincere announce the change of its Dota 2 squad. One of the old-timers of our team officially leaves the squad. This is the player, whose contribution to the team success can’t be overestimated. After 2 years of cooperation the hardliner Gleb “Funn1k” Lipatnikov leaves the squad. Read Gleb’s comment on his reason for the decision below.
Na`Vi expresses gratitude to Gleb for all he has done for the club and wishes him much success on the pass he’s chosen. We believe that Gleb will succeed and fully realize his potential.
Comment by Gleb:
“Hello, dear fans. I have a sad news for you today: I’ve decided to leave our friendly family, which took me 2 years ago. This was a tough decision. My priorities have changed by now. I might regret this decision in future. However I want to go my own way and to write a new page in my life.
I am very grateful to the organization, all the guys, with whom I played and spent almost all my time. I experienced many positive emotions and negative too, but there were more positive emotions after all :). I wish much success and good luck to everyone. Once again thanks a lot for the time we spent together. Additionally I want to thank to all the devoted fans, who believed in us even at the hardest times. We appreciate it and we respect that much, remember it.
As concerns my further plans, I am going to be inactive for some time and resolve my own problems. Goodbye. See you soon!"
Comment by Eugene Erofeev, General manager of Na`Vi squads:
“Well, we’ll have to turn this page in order to write the new chapter of our pass. This time, in this very hard period of the history of our team, the leave of Gleb is really big loss. There are a lot of reasons of the team’s poor performance, but every team experiences such periods. This is normal. However, Gleb has never been our weakest link. On the contrary he has always demonstrated the most stable performance. It is hard for me to make any comments on his choice and try contemplating on this subject, but the decision is taken and we have to accept it. Gleb seemingly has taken uneasy and most important decision in his life. On behalf of the organization I wish to express gratitude to Gleb for all he’s done for us, for staying so long with us and for going this hard pass of ups and downs shoulder to shoulder. I wish him successful implementation of his plans and undertakings. We will try our best to pursue new victories, understanding that we acquire much experience and become stronger in such times.”
Comment by Andrew “Kimi” Kvasnevsky, manager of Dota 2 squad:
“Many thanks to Gleb! Thanks for the great performance and for being the Professional. Funn1k has been in organization for 2 years, and this is a great contribution to the development and growth of the organization. I think such person as Gleb can find himself in this life. By no means do we say goodbye to Gleb. We will meet you again, friend! You are Born to win!”
