It's been a very strong start to the season for the new Na`Vi Dota 2 roster. They've already qualified for Starladder | i-League Invitational #3 and now they've added PGL Open: Bucharest to the list. Another team qualifies for the PGL Open Bucharest LAN Event. Congratulations @natusvincere!— PGL (@pglesports) September 21, 2017

So far in their matches, the new roster of ua Natus Vincere has come together quite nicely. In the PGL CIS Qualifier they had an almost perfect record.

On Sept 18, the first day of qualifier action, Na`Vi took down both ru M19 and ru Team Empire 2-0 to take top spot in their group. On Sept 20, the second and final day of the qualifier, Na`Vi defeated Vega Squadron 2-0 in Semifinal round of the playoff bracket.

Team Empire took down ru in the other Semifinal playoff match, but when they faced Na`Vi for the second time they still couldn't get past them. Both teams drafted very similarly throughout their three games. Na`Vi took Clockwerk and Disruptor all three times and Earthshaker twice, while Empire grabbed Venomancer three times and both Kunkka and Ancient Apparition twice.

Empire took the first win of the series but Na`Vi quickly and decisively won the second. The third and final game was a 95-minute marathon with plenty of back and forth but Na`Vi held on. A Divine Rapier for ua Danil 'Dendi' Ishutin's Lina helped seal the deal.

Na`Vi are the fourth team to qualify for the PGL Open: Bucharest, following pe Sacred*, my Mineski and cn VGJ.Thunder. North America and Europe Qualifiers are ongoing and will wrap up this week.
