Na`Vi to attend ESWC 2011
A week ago our organization announced that it would boycott Electronics Sports World Cup (ESWC) unless a registration fee is removed. Our position was supported by such teams as mTw, EG, Mousesports and fnatic. Last night ESWC committee has finally decided to remove the fee and therefore we no longer feel the need to boycott the tournament. This means that our squads will join the fight for a slot at the ESWC Grand Final in Paris with our Counter-Strike team attending the event as defending 2010 champions.
Word to Natus Vincere CEO, Alexander "ZerоGravity" Kokhanovskyy:
"We are very glad that ESWC organizers have indeed taken into consideration the position of the professional e-Sports teams and decided to meet their expectations. I hope that such solutions will not only improve the overall tournament image but also help ESWC to conquer new e-Sports markets. As defending champions our Counter-Strike team was invited directly to the grand final which is why you will surely see them competing in Paris. Na`Vi.DotA and Na`Vi.FIFA players will join the online qualifier to secure themselves a spot at the grand finals. Good luck to everyone!".
