Understanding Cybersport Team Navi


Natus Vincere, Latin meaning “born to victory, abbreviated NAVI, is a Kyiv-based esports organization. The organization, founded in 2009, features teams and individuals playing various games.

Navi’s Counter-Strike squad was the first to win three major competitions in the same calendar year: The Intel Extreme Masters, the Electronic Sports World Cup, and the World Cyber Games 2010. Their Dota 2 team became the most successful esports company at the time after winning The International 2011.

Natus Vincere severed relations with its controlling company, Russian esports giant ESForce, on March 1, 2022, following the Russian invasion of Ukraine, claiming that the corporation publicly rejects the tragedy that is presently unfolding in Ukraine.

Navi won IEM Katowice 2020, IEM Cologne 2021, Dream Hack Masters Spring 2021, and ESL Pro League Season 14 on September 12th, completing the third season of the Intel Grand Slam. They won their first navi csgo Major, PGL Stockholm 2021, on November 7th, defeating G2 Esports 2–0. At the BLAST Premier World Final 2021 and the BLAST Premier Fall Final 2021, Team Navi took the first position. In addition, Navi collaborated with Hator, a manufacturer of gaming-oriented computer equipment, to co-organize esport tournaments in 22 Ukrainian locations.
