Natus Vincere (Latin for "born to conquer"),[1] abbreviated Na'Vi, is an esports organization based in Ukraine. Founded in 2009, the organization has teams and players competing in various games, such as Counter Strike: Global Offensive, Dota 2, FIFA, World of Tanks, Paladins, League of Legends, PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, Apex Legends, Rainbow Six Siege, and Fortnite .[2]

Na'Vi Counter-Strike team was the first in history to win three premier tournaments—Intel Extreme Masters, Electronic Sports World Cup, and World Cyber Games 2010—in one calendar year. Their Dota 2 squad won The International 2011, becoming the most successful esports organization at the time.

Counter-Strike[edit]

History[edit]

ESWC 2010 and other tournaments[edit]

Na'Vi winning ESWC 2010

After a poor performance at the Arbalet Cup CIS 2010 (4th place), Markeloff, the team's top player, decided to skip the next big tournament, ASUS Winter 2010, so that the team could prepare for the Arbalet Cup and the Ukrainian qualifications for the ESWC.[3][4] In the middle of May 2010, Na'Vi took 2nd place in the prestigious Arbalet Cup Europe 2010 in Stockholm, losing to Fnatic in the finals and earning $10,000 in prize money.[5] Na'Vi finally gained victory at ESWC Ukraine.[6]

In the final part of the ESWC, the team hit the highest seeding, along with SK Gaming, Fnatic, and mTw.dk.[7] On July 4, 2010, Natus Vincere achieved the highest accolade in the history of Ukrainian e-Sports, winning the ESWC (which previously could not be reached by any CIS team), defeating SK Gaming in the finals: 16:5 (de_train) and 16:4 (de_inferno).[8] During the tournament Na'Vi passed through the group stage thanks to fortune, but outplayed Fnatic and mTw.dk in the playoffs.[9]

After being victorious in the world championship, Natus Vincere announced their participation in 2 more tournaments—Arbalet Cup Dallas and GameGune 2010 (Bilbao).[10] On July 18, 2010, Na'Vi won Arbalet Cup Dallas beating Mousesports in the final match: 19:15 (de_dust2), 16:12 (de_inferno). After receiving $25,000, Na'Vi took the first place in quantity of prize money earned by European teams that year.[11] Na'Vi took 3rd place in GameGune 2010 and Intel Extreme Masters Shanghai.[12][13]

Victory at the World Cyber Games 2010[edit]

On August 15, Na'Vi won the Ukrainian qualifications for the 2010 World Cyber Games and received a paid voucher to the finals in Los Angeles from September 30 to October 3, 2010.[14]

The next tournament for Na'Vi was ASUS Summer 2010, to which the team received a direct invitation. This tournament became first in the ASUS Open series, which was held at Kyiv gaming center "Kyiv CyberSport Arena". In the semi-finals Na'Vi lost to Kazakh team k23 and as a result took the 3rd place.

On October 4, 2010 Natus Vincere became the World Cyber Games world champions by defeating Danish team mTw.dk in the finals.[15] This victory made Na'Vi the first team in the world which had managed to hold the three most prestigious championship titles at once (IEM, ESWC, WCG). At the end of October 2010, ESL TV commentator Bakr "KinGSaicx" Fadl proclaimed that SK Gaming was going to invite the Ukrainian team to take place of its Swedish squad, but the manager of Natus Vincere declined this information.[16]

In early November 2010 Natus Vincere took part in the World e-Sports Masters tournament (WEM 2010), which annually gathers the best teams from all over the world in the Chinese city of Hangzhou. Among the eight participants of the tournament, Na’Vi took 4th place as well as $7,500.[17]

Victory at DreamHack Winter 2010[edit]

From the 25th to the 27 November 2010 in the Swedish city of Jönköping the largest LAN party in the world took place—DreamHack Winter 2010. To go to this tournament, Natus Vincere had to skip a major Russian tournament, ASUS Autumn 2010, since it was coinciding with DreamHack's dates. After finishing the group stage Na'Vi consistently outplayed teams puta, Fnatic, Frag Executors, and mTw.dk in the finals, winning the tournament.[18] During the four playoff matches the Ukrainians lost only one time to Fnatic on the new map—de_mirage.[19][20] "Starix" (Serhiy Ischuk) received the tournament's MVP award.

After winning DreamHack Winter 2010, the team established a new record: winning $220,000 in one year.[21] The previous record belonged to Swedish team Fnatic, who earned $189,000 in 2009 (before that, the record was held by Swedish team SK Gaming with earnings of $183,000 in 2003).[22]

Winning the Intel Extreme Masters 5[edit]

On March 5, 2011 Na'Vi defended their position in Hannover as the champions of the Intel Extreme Masters and earned $35,000. They defeated Polish team Frag Executors in the finals: 16:12 (de_train) and 16:10 (de_dust2).[23] $4,550 of the prize money was deducted (13% of the total) as a penalty for breaking the rules.[24]

Record prize money[edit]

The amount of prize money in 2010– $215,573 (as of November 7, 2010) holds the record for the entire history of professional Counter-Strike.[21] Previous records belonged to Swedish teams SK Gaming ($183,000 in 2003)

World Top Counter-Strike players[edit]

In 2010, popular website HLTV.org had made rankings for the 20 best Counter-Strike players. Yegor "markeloff" Markelov was 1st place, Sergey "Starix" Ischuk 4th, Ioann "Edward" Sukharev 5th, and the captain of Na'Vi, Daniil "Zeus" Teslenko had 19th place, as well as "The best captain of the year".[25][26]

In July 2020, AVI's original lineup, which dominated the 1.6 scene in 2010, will take on the organisation's current team in a battle of generations, announced on Monday. The showmatch will take place on August 1 at 16:00  and will be broadcast in both Russian and English by Maincast.

NAVI 2010 became one of the most dominant teams in the history of Counter-Strike after an impressive year that saw them win a series of international titles, including the IEM IV World Championship, ESWC, WCG and DreamHack Winter. The Ukrainian team went on to pick up a few more titles in the last two years of 1.6 — most notably the IEM V World Championship and the IEM VI Global Challenge Kiev — before making the transition to CS:GO in late 2012.

Dota[edit]

History[edit]

In October 2010, the creation of a Defence of the Ancients (DotA) squad was announced, which included the best Ukrainian players. Initially the team was composed of Aleksandr "XBOCT" Dashkevych, Artur "Goblak" Kostenko, Bogdan "Axypa" Boychuk, Oleksandr "Deff" Stepaniuc, and Andriy "Mag~" Chipenko. However, in December 2010, Mag~ and Deff- left the team. The empty slots on the team were filled by Ukrainian players from DTS.ChatrixDanil "Dendi" Ishutin, and Ivan "Artstyle" Antonov, who became the captain of this new squad.

A roster change on June 17, 2011 resulted in the replacements of Goblak and Axypa with Clement "Puppey" Ivanov and Dmitriy "LighTofHeaveN" Kupriyanov. In August 2011, Na'Vi was invited to the first Dota 2 tournament at GamesCom, Cologne, Germany. The event named "The International" featured 16 of the top teams from all over the world with an impressive amount of prize money—$1,600,000. Na'Vi was the ultimate winner, beating Chinese team EHOME 3–1 in the grand finals and winning a cash prize of $1,000,000.

On October 13, 2011, shortly after their victory, Artstyle left the team. The captain position was taken up by Puppey, and Sergey "ARS-ART" Revin, from Russian team Moscow Five, took the fifth slot on the roster.

2012 was a very successful season for Na'Vi as they won multiple tournaments throughout the year, including four consecutive seasons of Star Ladder's Star Series, the premier tournament for the CIS region.

At The International 2012, Na'Vi attempted to defend their title where they ultimately placed 2nd, losing to the Chinese team Invictus Gaming 1–3 in the grand finals.

At the end of February 2013, ARS-ART was replaced by Gleb "Funn1k" Lipatnikov from Russian squad Team Empire. Kuro "KuroKy" Salehi Takhasomi from Mousesports also joined the team, while LighTofHeaveN went inactive. In April 2013, after his contract expired, LighTofHeaveN officially left for Team Empire. In June 2013, Na'Vi announced an all female squad.

The first half of 2013 was difficult for Na'Vi as they struggled to gain a footing in major tournaments with their new lineup. Their first major tournament win was against RoX.KIS at the first season of the ESL Major Series One in April. In July, Na'Vi competed against 9 of the best Eastern teams at the Alienware Cup. They defeated LGD Gaming.cn 3–2 in the grand finals, and became one of the few Western teams to win a major Chinese tournament.

In August 2013, Na'Vi once again reached the Grand Finals of The International 2013, but they lost 2–3 in a very close fifth game against the Swedish team Alliance.

In July 2014, Na'Vi was knocked out in the lower bracket knockout phase of The International by Cloud9, placing at 7/8th place and earning $519,208. This would be the first time Na'Vi would not make it to the Grand Finals of The International. Many fans attributed this to a lack of adaptation and even went as far to mark it as an end of an era. Soon after this, Kuro "KuroKy" Salehi Takhasomi and Clement "Puppey" Ivanov left the team.

On February 13, 2015, Gleb "Funn1k" Lipatnikov retired from the Na'Vi Dota 2 team.[38]

On March 4, 2015, DkPhobos joined Na'Vi, replacing Funn1k.

On March 9, 2015, DkPhobos left Na'Vi to rejoin ASUS.Polar.

On March 25, 2015, Goblak left Na'Vi with SoNNeikO taking his spot.

On April 5, 2015, Na'Vi announced the return of Funn1k and ArtStyle with VANSKOR moving to reserve after battling a long term illness.

On August 27, 2015, Na'Vi announced the departure of captain Ivan "Artstyle" Antonov following a disappointing finish at The International 2015.[39]

On September 2, 2015, Artstyle returned, but as a substitute. The main roster spot was filled by acquiring M.Batbileg "Ra", and the second substitute spot was filled by Ilnur "Kudes" Khafizov.[40]

On October 16, 2015, Na`Vi announced the disband of their main roster.[41]

On October 19, 2015, Na`Vi posted on their website that Danil "Dendi" Ishutin and Akbar "SoNNeikO" Butaev will pick out the remaining 3 players for a new Na`Vi roster.[42]

On February 23, 2016, Na'Vi's new team was finalized with the team moving forward in the Dota Pit tournament after a disappointing defeat in the final qualifying round for ESL Manila.[citation needed]

On September 3, 2018, Danil "Dendi" Ishutin noted that he was looking for a new team and players for that team, signaling his departure as team captain of Na'Vi's DOTA 2 team.[43]
