Dendi and SoNNeikO to remain with Na’Vi

Dota 2 Andreea “divushka” Esanu

A few days after announcing their disband, Natus Vincere is now saying that Danil 'Dendi' Ishutin and Akbar 'SoNNeikO' Butaev will remain with the organization and will build the new Na’ Vi roster.

Although a lot of speculation on Dendi’s  gaming career possible ending have been passed all over the web, Natus Vincere breaks the silence and are announcing their most iconic player will stay and try to renew their Dota2  team roster along with what prove to be their best support option after the departure of Puppey and Kuroky.

 It comes as no surprise to see Dendi not leaving the Ukrainian organization , as indeed when you say Na’Vi, you also say Dendi and  the other way around.

Together with SoNNeikO, Dendi will undergo a recruiting process where they will literally test various players until they will find the perfect roster option with which Na’Vi will be ready to ride again from its own ashes.

According to the official announcement, in the upcoming days a couple of players that are willing to adventure into this new type of Na’Vi project will be made public.

Knowing that Na’Vi never really wanted to leave the CIS borders, with the big two  exceptions namely Kuroky and Puppey, it is unlikely to see any players fromm the newly formed teams, that also ensured their spot for the Frankfurt Major being now part of the “trial” process for the Ukrainians.

Current Na’Vi roster:
Ukraine Danil 'Dendi' Ishutin
Russia Akbar 'SoNNeikO' Butaev

Will Na'Vi opt for a non CIS roster?

    lol, all this shit wouldn't have happened if na'vi management isn't that blind and incompetent, agreeing to the decision of dropping puppey off instead of the other 4. it seems the management is STILL blind and will continue their road to turn na'vi into a rubbish tier team, anyways, all the best to SoNneikO
  • EJ "FooD.Cross-Eyed" Delos Reyes ,
    It makes sense since Dendi still brings money in whether they win or not. I hope they find good replacements. They should've done this a lot earlier.

      • Dmitriy "90dmitriy" Borodko ,
        And it is not only the words by anon user, LightOfHeaven told about it many times during his streams. But he can become some sort of their trainer, as he used to be their trainer for some period of time right before their disband, Russian casters told it. But after a few days they part ways again unfortunatelly.
