Natus Vincere has gone into the Dota two pub scene to locate its new place five service. Illias”illias” Ganeev, rated fifth at the European host to the Dota two leaderboards, will finish Na’Vi’s roster, the company announced today.
Na’Vi previously benched Akbar”SoNNeikO” Butaev, its prior position captain and five, because of”unsatisfactory outcomes at [the] MDL Chengdu Major Qualifier.” The Ukrainian company only was able to win two matches in the qualifier, dropping even to bar piles that made for the function.
At only 17 years old, he is one in the very long lineup of pubstars which other CIS associations have plucked straight from the pipeline this year, such as Virtus Pro picking up Egor”epileptick1d” Grigorenko and Vitalie”Save-” Melnic.
It is unsurprising that many CIS businesses are attempting something new by recruiting young, high-skilled players without a previous professional experience, however. The area had a dreadful showing at TI9, together with equally CIS agents in the bottom half of the final placings. It is the Exact Same story at the continuing MDL Chengdu Major, in which Gambit Esports and Team Spirit both finished dead last.
Na’Vi stays a legendary name in the Dota two scene. The company had its heyday during the infancy of their professional circuit, winning the first International and end runners-up for the subsequent two. Recent decades have been kind, but with Na’Vi most recently completing top-16 in TI9. The company probably hopes that its fresh blood will help its quest for parity from the 2019-2020 aggressive year.
