New Dota 2 squad



Today eSports club Natus Vincere announces the new Dota 2 squad. After the recent changes, we announce the return of 2 players, who have already represented our organization, and the leave of one player to inactive status.


First, we want to announce that Akbar “sonneiko” Butaev has passed the probation period and thus becomes the full-fledged member player of the team. We officially welcome Akbar in our eSports family and we believe that the team will be able to achieve its goals with his help.

Meanwhile, Ivan “Vanskor” Skorohod acquires inactive status, yet retaining the position of the sixth player. Being a reserve player, Ivan will be able to restore his health, and Natus Vincere team will do all they can to make the recovery faster.


The second part of the announcement is devoted to the representation of the two new players of the squad. It is important to note that both players have already represented our organization. Many of you know these names very well. Moreover, each of the players used to participate in the “star squad” and put much effort for the achievement of the results of the time.


The hard-laner Gleb “Funn1k” Lipatnikov returns to the team. Furthermore, the legendary captain, the person who led the squad to the first place at The International 2011, Ivan “ArtStyle” Antonov joins Natus Vincere as a member player.

It is Ivan, who will take the position of the captain and will manage draft. Club Natus Vincere sincerely believes in the “transformation” of Ivan to a successful leader of Na`Vi.Dota 2, as Ivan has all the characteristics necessary for the leader. The club is ready to facilitate Ivan in this transformation.


It is obvious that the new squad has very difficult tasks to fulfill. Each of its members will have to work hard and do the best he can both in game and in personal aspect.


Current Na`Vi squad:

UkraineIvan “ArtStyle” Antonov (captain)

UkraineGleb “Funn1k” Lipatnikov

UkraineAlexander "XBOCT" Dashkevich

The new squad will gather in Kyiv for bootcamp this week. The players will start training hard and preparing to the qualifiers of the next grand tournament. Surely, we will communicate with new players and try to answer many questions that emerged recently.
