Dota 2 / News / 15 February 2019 — 12:11

The Bo3 starts at 17:00 CET

Today, ua NAVI.GG.BET will fight for a spot in the finals of . The rival is eu Ninjas in Pуjamas. The series is scheduled to start at 17:00 CET, the format is best of 3.

"Ninja" can be called one of the strongest rivals in the entire championship. The team is in good shape: eu Ninjas in Pajamas players took first place at the DreamLeague Season 11 closed qualifiers, and at this event, Valentine Madness, they beat ru Team Empire and ru Gambit Esports 2-0.

As for the team members, in the 2018/2019 season, the organization decided to move away from the usual Swedish lineup and signed the team founded by us Peter “ppd” Dager. It was a somewhat dark horse back then, as the team hadn't played an official game at that point The organization trusted us ppd's talent and, judging by the latest results, it was a good idea.

So let's talk about eu Ninjas in Pyjamas in more detail. dk Marcus “Ace” Hölgard, who spent last season on eu Team Secret, took the carry position. Frankly, this is only his second season at a high level, and dk Ace proves he's in the right place every game. In particular, he's good at handling heroes like Meepo and Arc Warden, which gives us ppd an opportunity to surprise any opponent.

de Adrian "FATA-" Trinks became the midlaner; last year he played on Team Secret as an offlaner. The player returned to a more familiar role and shows a good level. He is known for his stable performance, which is very important for playing the mid lane.

The offlane is occupied by il Neta "33" Shapira, who us ppd invited after the past season at us OpTic Gaming. A very talented player, whose level was noted by each of his past team.

The first support is mk Martin "Saksa" Sazdov, playing position four. Notably, mk Saksa is top-2 solo MMR in EU. The "five" and the captain, us ppd, does not need any special introduction: this is the champion of The International 2015, known for his straightforward words and outstanding leadership qualities.

In the 2018/2019 season,ua Natus Vincere and eu Ninjas in Pyjamas have already faced each other. at the Megafon Winter Clash closed qualifiers, and the "yellow-black" defeated the opponent 2:0.

However, now the "ninjas" are on the rise, so our guys need to properly prepare for the upcoming games. Hopefully, today ua NAVI will score yet another victory with some interesting games! #NAVINATION
