Natus Vincere left the Divine Division of the OMEGA League, losing to Cyber ??Legacy with a score of 0: 2. Now the management is faced with a difficult task: what to do next with the Dota 2 roster. A solution has not been found for a long time.
Even taking into account the relative success at The International 2019, the organization can hardly be praised for running the most popular game in the region. In August, the management promised to keep the roster, but we see the result – out of the five in NAVI, only carry Crystallize remained, whose performance in recent matches does not stand up to criticism https://ggbetapk.com/skachat/.
The main reason is the loss of an experienced SoNNeikO. The Russian captain in the spring of 2020 proved that he is able to assemble a roster from scratch that will show a decent result. Six months earlier, Natus Vincere had decided to act without him, and since then there has not been a worthy leader among the “born to win”.
Perhaps this function could have been performed by Zayac, but he preferred Virtus.pro. It can be considered bad luck, but rather it is a management mistake that deprived the Ukrainian team, perhaps, of the last chance to return to the top. In any case, he did not want to play for NAVI and would hardly have become, but there was no replacement for him.
Instead of Blizzy, they took the vacated 9pasha in September. Not to say that the Russian offlaneer is worse, and even a defeat in today’s duel is not an indicator. In general, the victory of the former NAVI players over the previous ones is not an indicator. This is just one match, and you can remember the opposite examples, so bad or Chuvash.
But the bet on 9pasha as an experienced player who will pull up the youth and shape the face, the team’s style in tandem with the head coach of Mag, did not work. He is a very good player who could have easily played in tier-1 teams, but in NAVI, performance alone is clearly not enough.
Perhaps the best solution would be to find a captain who can show the management a worthy plan to save the team. Whether he needs one replacement or all four – it doesn’t matter, but carte blanche will give the leader confidence and allow him to fully implement his plans. The only problem is that there is simply no such captain in the CIS right now, and it would be strange to urgently revive the squad in the game, where the season and the World Cup have been postponed indefinitely.
