Regarding the late game (from 2013 to 2021), the team’s stats were as follows: out of 144 tournaments in which the players participated, they managed to take first place 31 times and the same number of times second place. It is worth highlighting the year 2021, when the team managed to win ten of the fifteen tournaments held. Overall, the team managed to win about six million dollars in nine years.
The team’s recent achievements were winning the prestigious “IEM Katowice 2020” tournament when Alexander Kostylev “S1MPLE” received a medal as the best player. The team did not lose on a single map while playing in the “PGL Major Stockholm” tournament.
Cs:Go Navi team and its changes
The team was created in 2009 in Ukraine and called Arbalet.UA. The team got its current name in February 2010 by a vote among its fans.
Initially, the team participated in CS 1.6 tournaments. Then, when the tournaments moved to CS:GO, they continued to play at CS:GO.
NaVi esports CS:GO team originally consisted of five players. They include: Danil Teslenko “Zeus”, Arseny Trinozhenko “ceh9”, Ioan Sukharev “Edward”, Sergey Ischuk “starix” and Yegor Markeloff “markeloff”. The team is distinguished by special cohesion and confident team play, allowing the guys to win tournaments repeatedly.
In 2013, Yegor Markeloff left the team, and Denis Kostin and Anton Kolesnikov, who hail from Russia, joined. In 2019, Kirill Mikhailov, with the nickname “BoombI4” replaced John Sukharev.
In 2020 Ilya Zalutsky, aka “Perfecto” joined the team.
Natus Vincere (NaVi) translates from Latin as “born to win”. This team fully corresponds to its name and has many victories in CS:GO tournaments.
The statistics show that the team started with particular success. Then in the middle of its career, the team had some changes that sometimes led to difficulties in the game. At the same time, NaVi continues to win tournaments more actively than ever. As eSports grows, including in the CS:GO industry, everyone can watch their favorite NaVi team and support their favorites.
