Natus Vincere bids adieu to Dota 2 roster

 

UkraineNatus Vincere has a rich history when it comes to eSports. It has left an impressive mark across all possible game genres such as Dota 2, Counter Strike: Global Offensive, World of Tanks and Hearthstone - to name a few and has lived upto its motto "born to win". Na`Vi was the first team to win "The International Dota 2 Championships 2011" held at Cologne, Germany and walked away 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 UkraineDendiUkraineXBOCTUkraineFunn1kRussian FederationSoNNeikO and Russian FederationPSM 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.

 

However, this 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. We will strike back and it is possible that you may get to see the re-emergence of some familiar faces in the scene. So be sure to follow our website and be up-to-date with all the relevant information.

 

Comment by Natus Vincere's COO Ukraine 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.

Es una lastima, para mi Na'Vi nunca morirá, siempre he sido fiel a mi único equipo, veo sus replays diariamente y aprendí a jugar por ellos...

They had to finally do it, but removing Sonneiko is a mistake. I really hope he will be part of the next rooster. Also Dendi and or XBOCT as coaches wouldn't be bad thing to have.

To be totally honest, watching the free 2 play documentary about the first TI which featured Na'Vi is what got me started in DotA 2. More specifically, it was really Dendi who inspired me into playing it. After that, I have just come to love the game on my own as I played more. Still glad to hear that Na'Vi will continue on with DotA 2. However, just gotta say, the DotA 2 scene will never be complete without Dendi; at least for me.

The legendary team never will die in our memories. I will keep these memories with very proud and a lot of hope that the tempest will pass.
I did learn to love Dota with this amazing team. I follow the games as long the TI3, but I watch the others TIs.
I suffered, I jumped, I was sad... I love this team.
Thank you: Dendi and Xboct, the amazing duo.
Gl hf for all: Funn1k, PSM and our legendary captain ArtStyle!!
