COVERAGE: SL Invitational 3 Qualifier


September 12th will be the beginning of a new journey for Ukraine Natus Vincere G2A, as our Dota 2 roster will be taking part in the StarLadder i-League Invitational 3 qualifiers. The competition will be tough, and each game critical, since only one team will make it through to secure a spot in the main event. 

The qualifier features a double elimination bracket, which means that a team is allowed to lose twice before being eliminated from the competition. All rounds will be best-of-3 games except the final match-up, which shall be played in best-of-5. 
Our boys will be going up against some strong opponents in Russian Federation Vega SquadronRussian Federation M19International Team SpiritRussian Federation Team Empire and International Gambit Esports, the last one being chosen as our Round 1 opponents. Also, Russian Federation Double Dimension and Russian Federation XAKOHCHE joined the fray after fighting their way through the open qualifier. 
This will not only be the first tournament to see NaVi back in action, but also the first minor to transpire in the new season. For this reason, our team will strive to achieve the best result possible, and we will support them every step of the way! Go, Natus Vincere! #gonavi
