In a somewhat surprising move, Na'Vi has just announced changes to their core roster of players, parting with long-time player Sergey "ARS-ART" Revin and replacing him with adding Gleb "Funn1k" Lipatnikov, formerly of Team Empire.
Ars-Art has been with Na'Vi since 2011, enjoying great success including 1st place in The Defence (2011), as well as 2nd at 2012 Dreamhack Summer and 2nd at The International 2012. He made the following statement:
I would like to thank Natus Vincere e-Sports Club for this wonderful year and a half that I've been a part of it. Thanks to the guys for their your support and victories. Thanks to the staff for all their assistance in every aspect. Special thanks to ZeroGravity, of course, who asked me to join Na`Vi back in that days. I want to wish good luck and new achivements to the new team. See you soon, just in a new squad!
Fellow Ukranian Funn1k will join Na'vi in his place, coming off some great performances in Team Empire. The newcomer had the following to say:
I feel sorry to leave my current team, but still Na`Vi is on top of the e-Sports and it's worth trying to become the best. I am very happy that I will be now playing with this team and won't say smth like 'we will become number 1 in the world'. I don't know if we will, but I know that I'll do my best to make it happen.
Na'Vi's full roster is now as follows:
Clement "Puppey" Ivanov (Captain)
Alexander "ХВОСТ" Dashkevich
Gleb "Funn1k" Lipatnikov
Daniil "Dendi" Ishutin
Dmitriy "LighTofHeaveN" Kupriyanov
