Natus Vincere finally welcome squad

Natus Vincere finally welcome squad

The Ukraine organization promised a StarCraft II squad a long time ago and they were expected to join the them in the beginning of the year. However, four months later they have finally brought in a team with relatively unknown names.

Rumors of big names came flying around, players such as Strelok, White-Ra and Kas were expected to join the side. Nothing of that appears to be true though, as Na'Vi welcome a young and talented team, formed out of three Ukrainians, a Dane and a Russian.

Denis 'Hireling' Shubkovskiy was very excited about joining Natus Vincere:

"Many of us dreamed to join Na`Vi. Our players want to represent this tag bringing it even more fame and respect on world's eSports scene. Our dreams came true. This is a great responsibility but also a perfect chance to realize ourselves as professional gamers. We will do our best to make Na`Vi the top team in StarCraft II!"

    Quite a surprise but good luck to them. Disappointed with the lineup, seems like anyone who waited gets a poorer lineup :O

    I don't know much about SC2 and these players, but what was your opinion on the navi team when they were still in kerchnet and didnt win anything yet? I like how they keep investing in ukrainian/eastern european players, rather than spending a fortune to get big names. Interesting to see if they can grow out to become decent players.

    Everything is possible of course, maybe Navi has a better learning environment, but just on merits of these players, it's hard to say if its a great pick up :)

    Well, with the backup they'll get I guess they will be really glad to train hard.. and just see what that constant training did to their CS-squad (sure they were good already, but they got better). Would've been nice to see Kas or someone like that in this list tho.

    They have recruited a DotA player who is still playing competitively, how do they plan to work with him? An organization as big as Na'Vi surely have a plan for him, to perhaps leave DotA....This is really the only solution I can see :S

    I think it's quite obvious that he'll focus on SC2 now :P

    But if he does switch, would be a smart move for himself.
