ESL One Mumbai 2019: first opponent

Dota 2 / News / 15 April 2019 — 22:58

The start of the match is scheduled at 08:30 CEST

The first opponent of ua NAVI.GG.BET at the tournament in India will be the representative of North America — ua TEAM TEAM. The match is set to begin at 08:30 CEST and will be played as a bo3.

Under the tag ua TEAM TEAM are five North American players. They got into the ESL One Mumbai 2019 by a chance: ua J.Storm withdrew from the championship, and ua TEAM TEAM eventually took the vacant place, although they completed the qualifying stage in the third place. Shortly before this, the ua Flying Penguins, which finished second in the qualifying round, ceased to exist, so ua TEAM TEAM got a lucky ticket to Mumbai.

The composition of the team is quite interesting. The newcomer and at the same time the most famous member of the team — ca EternaLEnVy. The Canadian player is not losing hope to raise the Aegis of Champions over his head, switching multiple teams on his way. So, this season us TEAM TEAM is already the fourth team for him, but it is worth recognizing that with his arrival the team managed to get to Major, and also performed well at one of the online championships. So the appearance of ca EE in the team has definitely borne some fruit.

The second player worthy of special mention is ua ixmike88. The charismatic team captain has not played at a high level for a quite some time and only this season he made a comeback after going through the qualifying stage of The Bucharest Minor. ua ixmike88 says, he has big goals, and getting into the Major also makes the fans believe in the seriousness of the player’s intentions.

The remaining participants of ua TEAM TEAM are less known, but there is no doubt in the skillfulness of the players. Each of them has high ranks in the solo-rating leaderboard: ua Gunnar — 5th place, ua Newsham — 179th,  and ua Brax — 14th. By the way, some of ua Natus Vincere fans can recall that ua Brax was the captain of the ua NAVI NA lineup.

Recall that in the championship in India, "yellow-black" came with a replacement in the lineup: ru Akbar "SoNNeikO" Butaeva was by ru Mikhail "Misha" Agatov. We are confident that our guys are well prepared for the tournament and will delight the fans with a great game! #NAVINATION
