 The most remarkable games

There's another category of matches worth the attention of the fans. Sometimes players demonstrate such incredible level of performance and outstanding play, that we can't help admire it, though the stats aren't as perfect. We've made a list of ua Dendi's brightest matches in 2017 and picked the highlights worth watching again!

NAVI vs. Team Empire

The most dedicated fans of the Born to Win, who would sacrifice the night sleep to see the game of their favorite team, must remember this play vs. ru Team Empire. The decider match for the slot at the LAN-final of PGL Open Bucharest was held for 95 minutes and 44 seconds. Surely, we were extremely happy that ua Natus Vincere gained victory. ua Dendi put every effort to prevent the rivals from getting to the Minor and showed how dangerous Lina can be in a long match. 

NAVI vs. Team Liquid

Another important achievement for our team was the victory over the reigning world champion eu Team Liquid. Our team encountered the winner of The International 2017 at European division of DreamLeague Season 8. After losing the first map, the Born to Win took revenge in just 30 minutes in the second game of the serious. Just take a look at this perfect Viper by Danil Ishutin!

NAVI vs. Team Secret

In 2017 ua Dendi has proven that he can surprise both fans and rivals. Who can easily play on Storm Spirit? ua Dendi! Who can pick Jakiro for midlane? ua Dendi. Who can defend mid on Ancient Apparition? Again ua Dendi! Danil and his teammates did puzzled their experienced and dangerous rival eu Team Secret and managed to realize this unique idea. Total must-watch!

NAVI vs. Team Secret

All the dedicated fans know: when it comes to ua Dendi, it's all about Magnus! No surprise! ua Dendi has vast experience playing on this hero, so why not get advantage of it in official matches. In the game vs. eu Team Secret, we saw it all: beautiful ultimates, wise initiation, save of teammates and Refresher Orb in mass fights!

NAVI vs. Team Secret

Tinker in official matches of the Born to Win is seldom picked. However, when our team use him, it's always amazing and all because of Danil. He has a perfect command of this hero. He demonstrated the best of his mastership in a game against eu Team Secret. Just take a look at ua Dendi's amazing plays in the video.

NAVI vs. Team Secret

The last, but not the least is another game of ua Natus Vincere and ee Puppey's team. This time ua Dendi played on Templar Assassin. We're pretty sure that our rivals wished they had banned this hero back on draft stage!

2017 recap: eSports achievement

Unfortunately, the first half of the season wasn't as successful and fruitful for ua Dendi as he probably wanted. The team missed a number of spring tournaments, but made it to EPICENTER 2017 due to viewer voting. This event was the debut LAN tournament of ua Natus Vincere in 2017.

The team didn't achieve the desired result in Moscow and went to Los Angeles to participate in The Summit 7. Next was the qualifiers of The International 2017. After the failure, it became obvious that the team would reshuffle. As a result, ru RodjER and ua Crystallize joined the team and ua XBOCT became the coach of the team.

The renewed five of the Born to Win began the new gaming season successfully and achieved leader positions in the CIS. The team qualified to a number of Minor tournaments and were preparing to the LAN-finals. The first success of ua Natus Vincere was the victory in the qualifiers of SL i-League Invitational Season 3 and PGL Open Bucharest.

Despite ua NAVI were in good shape, the encounter with the best teams of other regions made it clear for our team that they have much to work on. In Kyiv, the Born to Win took 5-6 places and in Bucharest — 7-8 places. Nevertheless, there are no victories without losses. The players began practicing hard and soon enough pleased their fans.

After qualifiers, ua Natus Vincere went to Moscow to fight for the champion's title at Adrenaline Cyber League with ru Virtus.pro, ru Team Empire and gr mousesports. Our team defeated mousesport and had a victorious final vs. ru VP. Congratulation again!

The last steps of the team in 2017 were the Major event DreamLeague Season 8 and Chinese MDL Macau. In Sweden the guys showed very good result and hit top 4 of the tournament. In Macau they made the same achievement. As a result ua NAVI gained qualifying points at both events, and ua Dendi now has 105 points.

2017 recap: quotes

uaDanil «Dendi» Ishutin
About his teammates 

I have tough teammates, that's why we play like this. They carry me that's how we win. The coach is also tough. He's also our «teammate».

uaDanil «Dendi» Ishutin
About the team and the game

We had hard times. The community loves us and hated us. I think we deserved it. It was hard. I simply love Dota 2. I enjoy the game and the spirit of competition. I love my team. I am pretty happy person. I'd like to say to those who are watching the stream: guys, if you like the team, you can support, and if you don't like it, there's no reason to hate it.

uaDanil «Dendi» Ishutin
About motivation

After a number of failures, you have the desire to win something and prove to yourself that you can and things like that. There's only one thing - when there's too much hate from others, it's unpleasant and it pushes you somehow. However, you play not only for yourself, but also for those who support you — there are such people. That's why I want to continue, and do my best to win.

I like to play that's why I play. I don't leave to other teams, because I'm not looking for easy ways.
