Natus Vincere in The XMG Captains Draft

Tournaments where teams compete not in CM mode are a very rare find indeed. The XMG Captains Draft Invitational is actually one of such exceptional cases, where teams, as you may have already guessed from its title, play matches in Captains Draft mode. Our team also participates in such an unusual competition.  

 

We remind you that Captains Draft is a mode that allows teams to pick from 24 randomly suggested heroes, 8 heroes of each attribute group (strength, agility, intellect). Team captains can ban and pick heroes only from this pool. The tournament consists of two stages: first, all 6 teams that received the invitation play each other during one month in bo3 format. Then, 4 best teams of the tournament play in semi-finals (bo5), and after that, two finalists meet each other in the concluding match of the tournament.
