Natus Vincere’s Dota 2 Team has announced that they will play ESL One Mumbai and the GGBet Birmingham Invitational with a stand-in.
This is definitely not the best season for Na’Vi so far. After Dendi’s departure, it seems like they were unable to build a stable team. After failing to qualify for the MDL Disneyland Paris Major and the OGA Dota Pit Minor, Na’Vi was “spiritually exhausted and could not even make their ideas happen.” Also due to “certain issues”, SoNNeikO will be replaced by Misha. Supposedly, SoNNeikO will rejoin the team right after ESL One Mumbai 2019.

According to the official statement, Akbar (Sonneiko) needs some time to resolve his health issues.
Misha previously played for various CIS teams but more recently he was a part from Com19SpadaNJI and played at MDl Disneyland Paris Major regional qualifiers. We will be able to see Misha in-game against The Pango for the GG.BET Birmingham Invitational.
The next challenge ahead of the legendary CIS team is ESL One Mumbai. ESl One Mumbai will offer a massive $300,000 prize pool, despite not counting for the DPC. Be sure to watch it.
