The changes in Na`Vi.G2A roster
eSports club Natus Vincere G2A announces the changes in its Dota 2 line-up. Roman "rmN-" Paley leaves the team today. As you know, Roman joined our team in late December 2016. He played in the qualifiers of Dota 2 Asia Championship 2017 and The Kiev Major 2017 with us. Unfortunately, we didn’t manage to advance to the next stage and secure the slots in the LANs of these events.
The player, well known by the fans of the Born to Win, Akbar "SoNNeikO" Butaev will replace rmN- on the position. In the near future, Na`Vi players will gather on a long bootcamp in Kyiv. They’ll be practicing for the qualifiers of EPICENTER 2017 and The Summit 7, both events being very important for the team.
The first match of the new roster will be held on 21 April 2017 at SL i-League Invitational 2. Natus Vincere will encounter with Effect. #GONAVI
Yevhen “HarisPilton” Zolotarov, Natus Vincere CEO:
"We wouldn’t make changes in our roster on the eve of a key bootcamp and important qualifiers if it weren’t for SoNNeikO. We are perfectly aware of Akbar’s potential and we just couldn’t lose the opportunity to work with him again. I want to thank Roman for the work he’s done. You are a great player and awesome person. I know you’ll do great. Continue growing as a pro and believe in yourself. I also express my gratitude to Vega Squadron organization and Alexey Kondakov personally for the quick transfer negotiations. Cooperating with you was very pleasant. There are few organizations that think of the players’ interest in such questions. Respect! I am grateful to all our fans for being with us in good and bad periods. You are the greatest asset of Na`Vi, so let’s push together!"
Igor “caff” Sydorenko, Dota 2 manager:
"Each man has his ups and downs - that’s how we get our priceless experience, which we base on when turning the wheel of our life. I am sincerely grateful to Roman for the contribution he’s made for the team. I wish him good luck on his way. I hope that in the future he’ll manage to fully realize the experience he gained in Na`Vi. I don’t doubt that he’s got the rise ahead of him. I am also glad to see Akbar is back. I am sure that due to his playing skills we’ll be able to achieve the long-awaited victories."
Akbar “SoNNeikO” Butaev:
"I am grateful to the guys for their trust. I am sure that together we’ll achieve the success!"
