The seedings for ROCCAT GosuCup #3 were announced today. Na'Vi.DotA was seeded into group B along with such teams as MYM, Virus and inF. As you can see, all of the opponents are skilled and well-experienced so the groupstage is not going to be a walk in the park for our guys. Axypa comments on the group stage: I think we have the hardest group as MYM is playing their A-game at the moment and deserve the title of the best team in Europe. Virus are French and that says for itself: they can surprize. Inf are Polish and I don't know much about this team. We played pcws with them couple of times and they showed us their strive to victory. All the games will be difficult but I'm sure that it is possible for us to pass the groupstage. You can see how the seeding was done here .
Our DotA squad of Natus Vincere will play their first match in new season of FARM4FAME league.

We will do our best as we want to punish our offender :). I hope that this time we won't have any problems and the game itself shows the winner. Cheer for us!" UPDATE : The match is over. Natus Vincere defeated Virus and will face The Retry in round two.
