PlayMate : We had problems with visas. Before departure, guys found out they could arrive without visas and receive them upon arrival. They contacted Russian embassy and they were told they could get to Kazakhstan without visas. We were flying via Turkey and asked same question there only to get the same answer. When we arrived, we were told we could not get in to Almaty and four of my teammates were deported back home. I wanted to fly with them, but I had a ticket for the day after tomorrow, that’s why I was staying. And that’s the way the cookie crumbles... You don’t look very upset! I see that the team from Kyrgyzstan invited you to their team... PlayMate : Hehe. Yes. I did not get very upset and consider it to be a negative experience. Team RSN asked me to play and as I was interested, I agreed. Of course, If i played with my boys from MYM – the result would be different, but I am still pleased. Lately, your team has frequently played with Na`Vi and the matches were very interesting. How would you overall estimate their game? PlayMate : To be honest, I like a lot this team. They have interesting picks, they do picks in the way no other team does. As far as I know, they are very strong and motivated team. Who do you think will get to the final stage of the tournament and what is the level of other teams at the moment? PlayMate : Well, with the current draw, team Viper will reach the final. In the other side of the bracket will be M5 and Na’Vi. Each of them can reach the final, but still I think that Na’Vi will take this. 12:22 - Na`Vi.DotA is now playing their semifinal match against Moscow5. Unfortunately the first game was lost so it all depends on game two and hopefully game three. Meanwhile we updated our DOWNLOADS section with CS and DotA replays as weel caught PlayMate for a small interview. The interview will be posted in the next update. Stay tuned! 12:22 - k23 is no match for Na`Vi on de_dust2 and Natus Vincere joins OSPL Spring 2011 Counter-Strike finals!

This match starts in 30 minutes and will be streamed via Waaagh!TV. 11:39 - Yozhyk continues his march in the play-offs and wins another match against Bydlo . This means that our player will be playing in the final of OSPL Spring 2011 FIFA tomorrow! 11:39 - Ukrainians didn't give chances for k23 on de_train and finished the first map with a solid 16 to 0 score. Meanwhile Yozhyk has already played his first match in the semifinal against Empire.Bydlo .

Did you try to do your best or you were sure to win that match anyway? Na`Vi|XBOCT : We didn't know anything about this opponent but decided to be as much unbiased as possible. We picked our standard heroes and made our job well. The second match was a bit harder. Did you intent to handle triple like that: Morphling farming the bottom while Naix farming the top? Na`Vi|XBOCT : Our tiple was able to give Morph some freefarm, harass middle and destroy towers. Naix had to fight without Armlet, die and it's not the best outcome. Have you managed to get some warm-up, get adapted? You said that it were lagging a bit even on LAN. Is everything okay now? Na`Vi|XBOCT : We visited the club yesterday, played 2 games, it was lagging hard, the internet was not ok, we worried about all that issues. But today when we joined GArena, everything went ideally. We changed our seats as it was more comfortable in another gaming zone, so we're happy about everything right now. 09:10 - Na`Vi.CS started their match versus SkyLine . We updated our DOWNLOADS section with some DotA replays. Have fun watching! 08:40 - Another victory for Na`Vi.DotA and the team ranks first in group A. They will now play against Group D second place finisher and this match will be played today. 08:25 -The tournament has already started and here we have some results: Na`Vi.CS left no chance for APS (16:2); Na`Vi.DotA had no difficulties with MoM and Yozhyk was able to win both matches in his group and will now play in the play-off. We have also added a Photogallery of the Day One , which you can check right here . 08:20 - Unforunately some problem with HLTV emerged: due to connection problems, some matches will be played either without or with limited HLTV support. HLTV.org assures that HLTV will be available for Na`Vi and k23 matches. IMPORTANT : MYM arrived to Kazakhstan but unfortunately were not able to attend the tournament as four out of five players were denied an entry to the country. The issue occured because MYM players did not have visa and failed to obtain one upon their arrival to Almaty. The only player of the team who was given a visa is PlayMate , who is now playing for RSN .
