Na`Vi strengthens at DTS's expense

General Adrian “la_dotta” Lai
After playing for DTS for over 2 years, long-time member Dendi has finally called it quits and joins up with rival Ukrainian team Natus Vincere (Na`Vi).

Currently one of the best Counter-Strike teams in the world today, Natus Vincere (Na`Vi) has set its sights on conquering the DotA scene as well.

To do so, the organisation today has made a rather significant roster change by booting both Andrey "Mag~" Chipenko and Aleksander "Deff-" Stepanuk from the current squad.

Their spots will be filled by none other than Danil "Dendi" Ischutin who decided to leave his current team and ex-captain Ivan "Artstyle" Antonov who left DTS almost a month ago.

Artstyle will reprise his role as team leader and will now be playing with the likes of Axypa, Go[blin] and Dendi, all of whom were DTS members in the past.

This also means that DTS is currently an incomplete four-man Russian team but no plans for a replacement have been announced.

Statement Ivan "Artstyle" Antonov, new Na`Vi team leader:

"I'm very glad to have an opportunity to play for Na`Vi and represent Ukrainian flag! New victories are coming, I believe!"

Current Na`Vi.DotA roster:

Ukraine Artur 'Go[blin]' Kostenko
Ukraine Aleksander 'XBOCT' Dashkevich
Ukraine Bohdan 'Axypa' Boychuk
Ukraine Ivan 'Artstyle' Antonov (Captain)
Ukraine Danil 'Dendi' Ischutin

Current DTS DotA roster:

Russia Dmitry 'LightOfHeaven' Kupriyanov
Russia Andrew 'Dread' Golubev
Russia Yaroslav 'NS' Kuznetsov
Russia Sergey 'ARS-ART' Revin
