Dota 2 / News / 11 February 2019 — 11:11

The Bo3 starts at 18:00 CET

ua NAVI.GG.BET begins its run at the tournament by WePlay studio with a match against eu Vega Squadron. The series is scheduled to start at 18:00 CET, the format is best of 3. For the "sharks", this is the second day of the competition: previously, in a tense fight, they beat the representative of Sweden, se The Final Tribe.

Vega Squadron went for a European roster, which initially performed under the Team Lithium tag, for 2018/19 competitive season. The team at the moment can be called a decent contender, and its best achievement is the 5-6th place at DreamLeague Season 10.

In addition, most recently, "sharks" decided to go for a reshuffle. jo Anas "MagE-" Hirzallah, who used to be playing mid, was replaced by ru Dmitry "DM" Dorokhin. The updated team made its way into the DreamLeague Season 11 closed qualifiers, where it took fourth place, remaining a step away from hitting the Major.

Team Skill: DM - in the middle

The rest of the participants should not be discounted either. gr Omar “Madara” Dabasas plays the carry position and made a name for himself during the famous gr Ad Finem run at The Boston Major. A good player, currently occupying the 45th place in the solo rating leaderboard.

The aforementioned ru DM is the winner of the CitySports Cybersport Academy reality show. Highly ranked leader, located on the 22nd line of the MMR leaderboard. The player has a fairly big hero pool, as well as, judging by the profile on the Dotabuff, a solid carry experience. This factor gives a certain flexibility to the eu Vega Squadron draft if necessary.

The captain, and the offlaner, isde Maurice "KheZu" Gutman - an experienced player who played for eu Escape Gaming and eu Team Secret. He came to the game relatively late - in 2015, he had previously played Heroes of Newerth. Incidentally, in this game, he ranks third among the players who won the most prize money.

Position 4 support is another player of former gr Ad Finem - gr Verros “Maybe Next Time” Apostolos. Position 5 is taken by fiPetu “Peksu” Vaateinen, who also used to play Heroes of Newerth. A pretty strong duo of players who complement each other.

In the 2018/2019 season, ua Natus Vincere and eu Vega Squadron (including the period of under eu Team Lithium tag) fought four times - and so far, we maintain 100% win rate. However, we haven't played against the new lineup yet, so we need to prepare.

It is also worth recalling that the tournament WePlay! Esports Dota 2 Valentine Madness is an excellent platform for practicing some interesting or even unusual tactics and strategies before starting DreamLeague Season 11. Therefore, we are confident that ua NAVI players will not only achieve a victorious result, but also show a bright game! Join the broadcast and support the "yellow-black"! #NAVINATION
