Natus Vincere will miss StarSeries & i-League CS: GO Season 6

With a pre-season break coming to an end, ua NAVI.GG.BET are focused on finalizing the competition schedule for the first half of the 2018/2019 season. Due to a large number of events taking place almost back-to-back, we are forced to withdraw from StarSeries & i-League CS: GO Season 6.

The players and coaching staff will concentrate on some other events, the details of which will be revealed very soon. It's not without regret that we have to miss our home tournament, especially since its previous iteration brought our first triumph and marked the beginning of our successful streak. We're hoping to take every next chance we get to play at home and meet our loyal Ukrainian fans many more times in the future.

"With each year it becomes harder to choose what tournaments to participate in, because their quality and quantity are continuously growing. Our schedule for the season is so busy that we are forced to withdraw from the home tournament, which we never missed before... A combination of factors are at play, and we know we'll be needing a break at that point... Many other tournaments are coming up and we have very serious goals for them."
