Natus Vincere to take part in PUBG Global Invitational with a stand in

ru Unique's Sports ru Evgeny "iLame_ru" Pekhtelev will step in for ru NAVI.GG.BET in PUBG Global Invitational 2018. He will take the place of ru Dmitrii "Shade1" Roshchin who has been denied entry due to the age restriction.

According to the rule imposed by PLAYERUNKNOWN'S BATTLEGROUNDS developers, PUBG Global Invitational 2018 requires every player to be at least 18 years old, while Dmitrii is only 16. As far as the future events are concerned, ru Natus Vincere will attend them with a full lineup.

We are grateful to ru Unique Sports and ru Boris "Starsky" Staroselsky for their help in resolving the issue.

Valeria «Lera_X» Khegay – NAVI.PUBG manager

"Unfortunately, the organizers decided to introduce the 18+ age restriction, which led to us and some other teams missing the chance to attend PGI with a full lineup. 
Our discipline needs remarkable success stories like SumaiL's at The International 2015. Being only 16, Shade1 has a vast potential and inspires lots of teenagers who are willing to try their hand at competitive PUBG, but can't go for it because they are too young. We hope that PUBG Corp. will change their attitude to this issue in the future, allowing young players to make their dreams come true in the professional stage".

Natus Vincere PUBG roster for PUBG Global Invitational 2018:
ru Ivan «ubah» Kapustin
ru Sviatoslav «Drainys» Komissarov
ru Vadim «POKAMOLODOY» Ulshin
ru Evgeny «iLame_ru» Pekhtelev

ru Valeriia «Lera_X» Khegai (manager)
