Na'Vi announces a new roster

posted by Meliora.Infinitum,
The departure of captain ee Puppey and de Kuroky left a void in the former ua Na’Vi squad, which has now finally been filled as both ru Ivan "VANSKOR" Skorokhod from ru Team Empire & by Artsiom "fng" Barshack from by PR have been enlisted by the multi-gaming organization as part of their new Dota 2 team.

A new beginning for Natus Vincere.

One of the longest standing top tier teams - ua Na’Vi - has undergone significant changes since they first struck gold in The International in 2011. Only two players remain from that original squad who became famous by winning the biggest eSports event in history back then. The three time finalists of The International now look ahead as they announce their brand new Dota 2 roster in the wake of the departure of both ee Clement "Puppey" Ivanov and de Kuro "Kuroky" Salehi Takhasomi.

I am very pleased to be noticed by Na’Vi guys. It being a great responsibility I undertake to perform at the best level. I hope we’ll do our best as a new squad!

I am very glad to have an opportunity to play for Na’Vi team. I hope I won’t disappoint people that believe in me. I am grateful to the team ESFX.PR for their support and for the time I spent with them. I do not know what lies ahead of me, but this is the path I choose.
