“Thank you for the opportunity to prove myself with NAVI. I really enjoyed playing with this team and I’m really sad that we couldn’t reach our goals.”

NAVI Rainbow Six Siege manager

“When Panix joined us and Doki returned to the main roster, we wanted to keep the team unchanged throughout the competitive year. The pandemic brought some changes to our plan, if we’ve had the opportunity to hold a bootcamp, we might have been able to resolve disagreements within the team or even prevent them on the root.

We were hoping to get into the top-4 in the European League, however, it didn't work out. It is important to note that nobody blames Panix for our recent results. Our goal is to qualify for the Six Invitational in the next year, whilst our time and options are running out.

That’s why we’ve decided to reshuffle our roster during the offseason to form the most competitive roster for the next season of the European League.”
