Dreamhack Summer 2011 coverage - Day 1

Dreamhack Summer 2011 coverage - Day 1
Morning everyone, we are launching our coverage of DreamHack Summer 2011 and will focus on the performance of our team Natus Vincere . Our first match starts in few minutes as at 09:00 CET Na`Vi will meet with Lions on de_tuscan. Oddly, but the next match will be played only at 19:00 CET and we really wonder who was that genious to come up with this schedule. So the second match versus mTw on de_mirage will be only played 9 hours later and meanwhile you can follow the coverage hereon navi-gaming.com . Latest updates : 20:08 - Yet another "good news" from tournament orgas - Na`Vi vs mTw match will start not earlier than 23:00 CET. It's time to get some coffee... 18:20 - HLTV.org has posted about Lions ' protest for their match versus Na`Vi . According to the source, after losing 7 to 16 swedish team has decided to protest the match as Sergey" starix " Ishuk was late for the match. The game started with 4 Ukrainian players verus 5 and when the score was 8 to 0 for Lions, a restart was done. We have asked to comment on the situation our CS teammanager and Natus Vincere CEO Alexander " ZeroGravity " Kokhanovskyy: «There is only one thing I can tell about this situation with Lions. When admin made restart and SO CALLED MATCH started, we were 4x5 just running on the map, bunnyhopping and typing 'kill' all together. Noone could say it was a real MATCH because no tournament match has ever started with 4x5. As soon as starix configured everything (he had lots of problems with his PC which had to be solved and still he wasn't been able to configure controls) and connected, ceh9 asked for a restart. The restart was confirmed. Please note that there isn't ANYTHING in the rules about regame in case of delay».

As far as you could see there have been a lot of questions about Na`Vi.DotA line-uplately. Today we would like to reveal the new line-up of our team but at the same time we feel the need to spread some light on the last few weeks of Na`Vi.DotA. Right after ASUS Spring 2011 we had to take an unexpected vacation as the players were quite tired and we had new gaming season just round the corner. At the same time Artur ' Goblak ' Kostenko decided to leave the organisation and as Axypa and Goblak could only play together, we started to look for "new" players...
