Today we have to announce a somewhat uneasy decision about roster changes in Na`Vi.Dota 2 squad, but as the time goes we felt there was a need for a fresh blood. That being said, Sergey "ARS-ART" Revin is leaving the team with Gleb "Funn1k" Lipatnikov joining the ranks of Natus Vincere.
Being a priceless asset for the team, Sergey has helped us to achieve a number of oustanding tournament victories which we are very grateful to him for. We would like to wish him all the best in his new team and we're pretty much sure he will strengthen any squad he is going to join in the nearest future.
"I would like to thank Natus Vincere e-Sports Club for this wonderful year and a half that I've been a part of it", says Sergey "ARS-ART" Revin. "Thanks to the guys for their your support and victories. Thanks to the staff for all their assistance in every aspect. Special thanks to ZeroGravity, of course, who asked me to join Na`Vi back in that days. I want to wish good luck and new achivements to the new team. See you soon, just in a new squad!"
"Today I announce that one of our players will be leaving the team, Sergey "AA" Revin. The presence of Smile in this team will always be remembered, because he was a part of what created Na`Vi", says Clement "Puppey" Ivanov, the captain of Dota 2 roster. "Times have been different and conflicts have arisen. It has been an uneasy environment for a long period of time, we have been trying to fix this situation but have failed to do so. That is why we will bring new blood and friendship to the team. Funn1k, an old friend of XBOCT and a remarkable player will be joining us today to rebuild Na`Vi and create a new environment"
There is not much to be said about Gleb "Funn1k" Lipatnikov, who has produced an immense progress in competitive Dota 2 for the past months. We are sure that his hunger for tournament victories and motivation will help us to reinforce the team and show once again what real Na`Vi is made of.
"I feel sorry to leave my current team, but still Na`Vi is on top of the e-Sports and it's worth trying to become the best.", says the newcomer in Na`Vi Gleb "Funn1k" Lipatnikov. "I am very happy that I will be now playing with this team and won't say smth like 'we will become number 1 in the world'. I don't know if we will, but I know that I'll do my best to make it happen"
The new lineup of Na`Vi.Dota 2 looks as the following:
Clement "Puppey" Ivanov (c)
Alexander "ХВОСТ" Dashkevich
Gleb "Funn1k" Lipatnikov
Daniil "Dendi" Ishutin
Dmitriy "LighTofHeaveN" Kupriyanov
