 Dota 2

Dota 2 Asia Championships 2018 QUALIFIER

If so, you won't have to wait for too long: our renewed squad will be making their first competitive appearance this Saturday, as we will take part in the Dota 2 Asia Championships 2018 qualifiers. There, one slot will be contested by eight teams, among which are such CIS juggernauts as ru Team Empire, ru Team Spirit and ru Vega Squadron.

The opening encounter will have us take on kz Team Invincible, who qualified through the open qualifiers. The game is set to begin at 15:00 CET, February 10, and will be played as a Bo3 series. With a double-elimination format, the losing team will be given one more chance in the lower bracket, whilst the winning team will advance to the next round.

Although Dota 2 Asia Championships 2018 is already the third iteration of the series, it is going to be the first DAC event to attain the major status. It will bring together 16 teams from all around the world, and hopefully, we will see ua NAVI among them! 

ESL One Katowice 2018

The last days of winter will see another big event transpire. Scheduled for February 20-25th, ESL One Katowice 2018 will be of a special importance to Natus Vincere, being their very first LAN with the new lineup. NAVI's run at this tournament will begin with a game against Fnatic and in order to make it to the second round, we will need to take two maps off them.  

The loss will mean dropping down to the lower bracket, where the losing team will get another chance to make it to the playoffs. Because we have been placed in the same group as eu Team Secret, cn Newbee, us Evil Geniuses and some other strong opponents, the walk won't be easy, but it is sure to bring us a ton of impressive Dota 2 action!

The Bucharest Major

Natus Vincere will be enjoying the first days of spring in the city of Bucharest, where 16 teams from all across the globe will gather to fight for The Bucharest Major trophy. Pulling it off will not be an easy task, but our boys will do their best to make this an event to remember.

The group stage will be held under the Swiss System with Bo1 rounds and see only eight teams advance into the playoffs, which means we may see some twists and surprises as it unfolds. In this setting, Born to Win will have to put in thorough preparation to make it far in the bracket.

GESC: Indonesia Dota 2 Minor

Our next LAN appearance will be GESC: INDONESIA Minor, which will take place on March 15-18. As a reminder, rs LeBron helped us qualify for this event, as he stood in for ru SoNNeikO in qualification games and had a hand in victories against ru Vega Squadron and ru Team Spirit. More details on its format and schedule are yet to be announced. 

  Counter-Strike: Global Offensive

ESL Pro League Season 7

Our Counter-Strike: Global Offensive squad will also have a busy event calendar for the next couple of months, and the closest event at hand is ESL Pro League Season 7. We had a hard-fought road earning our spot here: we ended up in the relegation zone last season and had to fight our way past tr Space Soldiers and se GODSENT to prove that we deserve to compete against the best teams in the world.

Our players will be stepping into the battle with renewed vigor, measuring themselves against 13 best EU teams. The online stage kicks off on February 13 and will be played till the end of April, while the LAN finals are scheduled for May 14-20. More information on the tournament schedule will be released soon! 

StarLadder & i-League StarSeries Season 4

The next event will be StarLadder & i-League StarSeries Season 4 Finals, held in Kyiv on February 17-25. It will open up with a group stage which will halve the number of contestants to eight. Born to Win will go up against such renowned teams as br SK Gaming, kz Gambit Esports, fr G2 Esports and others.

Unlike the previous season, the group stage will be played under the Swiss System. The playoffs, in turn, will use a usual single-elimination bracket with bo3 matches. Our first-round opponents will be eu HellRaisers.

Now that you know everything about the events which our squads will attend in the coming months, you are 100 % ready to support ua NAVI! Tune in and cheer for us! #gonavi
