Na`Vi's new roster

Posted by Linus "Tjernobylbarnet" Staaf at 17 June 2011 16:54
Yesterday was a chaotic day for European DotA as lots of rumours were floating around. Today it's been confirmed by Na`Vi that juggernauts Puppey and LightofHeaven will be joining their ranks.

Recently, Na`Vi has been playing with quite messy line-ups, if they've been playing at all. The ukrainian team took a break after winning the recent ASUS LAN and it's now revealed that Goblak and Axypa will part ways with the powerhouse. But the team didn't stay incomplete for very long. M5's LightofHeaven and GGnet's own Puppey is now officially part of the team, and it is looking like quite a strong team indeed.

Statement from Puppey:
-"Na`Vi is now a team of great hope. As the last good year for DotA (next year's DotA 2), many European teams have abandoned real competion for #1 World, but I seek this competion. It was time for change. Na`Vi is the perfect opportunity. I will be leaving good friends behind from GGNet, mainly Kuroky, who has had my back for a long time and vice versa. It's hard to set the bar high and accomplish it, but I have a good feeling we, as Na`Vi, can make it. My thanks to all those who have supported me, GGnet and my fans. NEW WORLD ORDER FOREVER!"

Statement from ZeroGravity, manager:
-"I would like to thank Arthur and Bogdan for them contribution to the team. Without their efforts - Na`Vi command in DotA would not exist. I would like to wish them good luck and the desire to move only forward! From our side we are sure that Dima and Clement will lead the team to a new stage of development! I would also like to thank the management of the M5 team for the opportunity to transfer, the price of which amounted to $ 2,000."

Statement from LightofHeaven:
-"Thank you for the excellent support of M5 and a great pastime. Of the two blessings choose the best. I tried to catch a pie in the sky."

This Light remains mysterious as ever. His catching a pie refers to a Russian saying somewhat meaning that he aims to for a bird flying higher up. A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush. And he wants two birds in the hand.
It's not yet clear who will replace Light in M5 nor who will fill Puppey's shoes in GGnet.

Roster of Na`Vi
Ukraine Ivan 'Artstyle' Antonov
Ukraine Alexander 'XBOCT' Dasjkevitj
Ukraine Daniil 'Dendi' Ishutin
Estonia Clement 'Puppey' Ivanov
Russia Dmitry 'LightOfHeaven' Kupriyanov
Ukraine Dmitriy 'McDeee' Bieletskyi (manager)

It will be interesting to see what this roster can pull off. We'll get to see them in action tonight already at 19 CET when they go up against NE.Pentia in Darer Tournament.
