Natus Vincere has always been considered as one of the most loved teams in the world. However, their performance in the last couple of years has been mediocre. This led to various roster changes, including the departure of Danil “Dendi” Ishutin, one of the most legendary Dota 2 players in the world. Despite these changes, the team has still struggled to achieve anything big.

As a result, the last DPC season, both TI 9 and the start of this season were not good for Na`Vi. Even though they’ve added Pavel “9pasha” Khvastunov, he wasn't enough to revive the CIS legends

“Right after TI has concluded, the problems in interactions between the captain and some players became clear. We have discussed it and made a joint decision to keep the backbone of the team and work on those problems. … Nonetheless, the first difficulties in the official matches sparked the same personal conflicts that we were going to leave in the past, and everything came crashing down like a house of cards. As a result, we didn't qualify for the Minor, let alone the Major,” said Na’Vi’s CEO.

As a result, the Ukranian organization decided to part ways with their captain Akbar “SoNNeikO” Butaev. Needless to say, he's one of the strongest players in the CIS regions. Akbar joined Na’Vi around four years ago and has been on the rise ever since. However, it seems like the team needed some fresh blood in order to start winning again.
