Na`Vi-Strelok has qualified for WCS 2013
The third qualifier of European stage of World Championship Series 2013 has concluded today. The finalists will go to "Primier Leauge" which is the main stage of the most important SC2-tournament of the year. One of the finalists is a player of team Natus Vincere - Eugene "Strelok" Oparyshev. He took on 8 very tough opponents along the way and earned himself a right to fight against the best players in the world in the main stage of World Championship Series 2013. Also, Eugene guaranteed himself with at least $1,500 which will be given to every player who places 17-32 in the group stage of Premier League. We would like to remind you that another player of Natus Vincere, Jon “BabyKnight” Andersen, has already been invited to the main stage of the tourney. On his way, Strelok took on three of the strongest opponents from Europe: German zerg NEX.Delphi and two protoss CM.PandaTank and NrS.Welmu. The toughest one though happened to be Korean protoss MVP.duckdeok aka MVP.Finale. The games were really close, but in the end the Korean wasn't able to find a key to victory over unbelievably strong Eugene's performance. After Eugene won this one, there were no doubts about him going through the rest of this hard path in the qualifier with success.

Natus Vincere disbands its StarCraft 2 s
The new year eve has always been the right time to sum up all major events of the year. Natus Vincere is not an exception and by analyzing the current status of our gaming squads we have decided to disband our StarCraft 2 squad. The major factor that led to this decision was lack of satisfying results by team players. We thank to all our players that have been representing the organization during this year. We appreciate their contribution to the team and wish them sincere good luck. Most probably we will come back to StarCraft 2 title in the end of 2012 but will be still following the scene with Denis “ Hireling ” Shubovsky still representing Na`Vi.SC2 as our official broadcaster for this e-Sports discipline.Below you can read the statements by our CEO and teamcoach. Comment by Na`Vi CEO, Alexander " ZeroGravity " Kokhanovsky: As you know, Na`Vi has always strived only for gold medals druing every tournament and championship. Unfortunately that was not the case with our StarCraft 2 squad. We want to thank our players for their contribution to the team and organization. I wish them good luck and firmly believe that they will develop their gaming skills. We will start re-building new SC2 Heart of the Swarm team in September, 2012. Комментарий от экс-тренера Na`Vi.SC2 и официального стримера команды, Дениса " Hireling " Шубовского: We had to take a very difficult decision these days. I'm sorry to infrom that we've decided to disband SC2 division of Na `Vi teams. I'm extremely sorry, but we had no other options. We were trying hard to find at least one viable solution for 2012 but we couldn't. While it's a sad event, I still would like to thank our players, they have been improving their gaming level for the whole year. I am confident that each of them will make us happy with their matches and victories in the future. I'd also like to give many thanks to Natus Vincere team for the opportunity to practice and compete under their tag. A lot of work has been done, but it's still not enough. Comment by ex-player of Na`Vi.SC2, Vasily " Panda " Kuznetsov: Despite the fact that this piece of news is quite unexpected, I was glad to play in such a good and friendly team. I wish good luck to everyone. Comment by ex-player of Na`Vi.SC2, Alexander " ALF " Yatsenko: I appreciated the opportunity to play under my native flag. It has always been a great incentive for me. And it will be forever. I don't want to stop and I promise to move forward, even if I have to do it not under the Na `Vi flags. Comment by ex-player of Na`Vi.SC2, Svyatoslav " HappyZerg " Vlasyuk: I want to thank Natus Vincere for cooperation! I am sorry that we will not longer collaborate but will still support other squads of the team!
