The CIS qualifiers for the DreamLeague Season 10 Minor concluded with Na’Vi making a perfect run through the upper bracket games to claim the one slot available in their region for the LAN playoffs.
Natus Vincere has gone through an almost full restructure this fall shuffle. Danil “Dendi” Ishutin, their legendary figure, is no longer a part of the team, neither is Alexander “XBOCT” Dashkevich, who’s been the team coach for the past year. Na’Vi are truly entering a new era of their existence and new beginnings demand sometimes drastic changes. The Ukrainian legendary organization is starting the 2018-2019 season with youngsters in the core positions, some with little competitive experience, but who have been given now a life-changing opportunity.
Natus Vincere roster:
– Vladyslav ‘Crystallize’ Krystanek
– Idan ‘MagicaL’ Vardanian
– Evgenii ‘Blizzy’ Ri
– Evgenii ‘Chuvash’ Makarov
– Akbar ‘SoNNeikO’ Butaev
– Andrey ‘Mag’ Chipenko (Coach)
The new Na’Vi roster crumbled in the Kuala Lumpur Major qualifiers where they’ve been knocked out in the in the first round of the lower bracket. A week ago, Alliance, Na’Vi’s archenemy in Dota 2, crushed the European qualifiers and made the news titles. Today, it’s Na’Vi’s turn to take the spotlight and hope for a chance at reviving one of the strongest rivalry in the Dota 2 history, Alliance vs Na’Vi. But, for that to become a reality, Na’Vi will have to win the DreamLeague Season 10 Minor in Stockholm, Sweden so they can also claim the final slot in the KL Major where Alliance is already waiting.
The DreamLeague Season 10 Minor will take place October 29 – November 4 with eight teams fighting for the championship title, a few Dota Pro Circuit points and a share of the $300,000 prize pool. Up until now, five teams claimed a spot at the DL Season 10 Minor, with three more to be decided in the upcoming hours via regional qualifiers in Europe, North and South America.
