NAVI Dota 2 roster update, three players benched, as well as coach

After weeks of uncertainty, and a couple of controversial tournaments, NAVI has finally announced the changes in their Dota 2 roster. And they are quite surprising. 

Three players were benched, as well as the team's coach. 

  • Vladislav "Crystallize" Kristanek
  • Pavel "9pasha" Khvastunov
  • Nikita "young G" Bochko
  • Andrey "Mag" Chipenko (coach)

At the moment, there are only two players left in the squad:

  • Ilyas "Illias" Ganeev (support, pos5)
  • Alexander "Immersion" Khmelevskoy (support, pos4)

Chief Operating Officer Alexey "xaoc" Kucherov said that the club "is starting to restructure its roster." At the same time, it may drag on for a long time: according to the same commentary, the club will weigh various possibilities "over the next months to come to the best option."

Natus Vincere has not yet announced their participation in any of the upcoming tournaments. NAVI's previous line-up lasted for almost three months since Young G and Immersion joined the team. During this time, the team competed in OMEGA League (11th-12th place in the Immortal division and 5th-6th place in the Divine division), and also took 5th-6th place in the OGA Dota PIT Season 2.
