Newest entry in Na'Vi's revolving roster door
May 14, 2018
In an announcement on its website, Na'Vi announced that velheor will be joining the squad to replace LeBron.
ANALYSIS
The move comes after weeks of continued poor results for Na'Vi since the addition of LeBron. velheor is at this point an unknown player in the international scene. He previously played for SFT esports as well as a number of assorted CIS mix teams. This move will also shift Lil to position five, while velheor takes up the four role. Whether this move is enough to revitalize an extremely stagnant Na'Vi roster remains to be seen.

Incredible Tusk play highlights impressive performance
April 14, 2018
Lil outplayed the SG esports supports in Natus Vincere's elimination match at StarLadder. The flamboyant support finished with a KDA of 5/4/38.
ANALYSIS
Lil was a highlight reel for Natus Vincere in Game 1 with his Tusk. From his Ice Shard initiation to his Snowball saves, Lil could do no wrong against SG esports. In Game 2, he had a more quiet game with his Vengeful Spirit but his one save on Crystallize in the late game allowed Natus Vincere to turn the clash around.
Gutsy playstyle pays off
April 14, 2018
GeneRaL went 9/3/23 in Natus Vincere's 2-0 win against SG esports at StarLadder.
ANALYSIS
GeneraL's Clockwerk in the series opener surprisingly one his lane against Liposa's Razor. His Hookshots were perfect during the mid game and SG esports never got going. His Slardar in the 2nd game had a slightly rougher laning stage but he still managed an 11-minute Blink Dagger. After the Dagger, General just dictated the tempo of the game with ease.
Outdueled 4dr with ease
April 14, 2018
Dendi stepped up his game tenfold against SG esports in their elimination match at StarLadder. The veteran mid laner finished with a KDA of 13/1/25.
ANALYSIS
Dendi dying only once was an incredible feat in the important series for Natus Vincere. He thoroughly outplayed 4dr in the laning stage in the two wins. His Shadow Fiend was good but it was his Puck in Game 2 that stole the show. He initiation was clean and he kept getting out of sticky situations that gave SG a lot of headaches.
