Na’Vi has chosen to withdraw from BEYOND EPIC as it works to complete a Dota 2 roster for the rest of the summer.

Na’Vi’s absence produced an opening for another group to join the Europe/CIS bracket from the closed qualifiers, suggesting B8’s time to shine has finally come.

After changing everybody however himself, Dendi’s brand-new roster broke a competitive Dota 2 record 0-26 losing streak. They came close to making it into the tournament through their own improved play, however Group Empire Hope, now just Team Empire, and were still able to beguile the brand-new lineup.

After being gotten rid of by 0-2, Dendi came out and said that while the series had the ability to continue, he was struck with a DDoS attack twice over a two-day period. He had the ability to play, however it is unclear if this occasion actually affected his gameplay in a truly impactful method that would have swung the series.

But while B8 fixed its roster problems, Na’Vi is still looking for its own course to sustainable success within the current CIS climate. After signed away Bakyt “Zayac” Emilzhanov in February, the team has actually not been the same, only handling one leading 3 surface at Gamers Without Borders 2020, which was a showmatch event.

” The team is still in the process of development,” Na’Vi’s Dota 2 supervisor Igor “caff” Sydorenko said. “We are checking the brand-new players, and we are not ready to carry out at the official competitions simply yet. So we have to withdraw from Beyond Epic.”

And with the last-second withdrawal, Na’Vi legend Dendi and his group will replace his former group in case. It is completely made, as even with the two losses, B8 still ended up in 3rd location during the closed qualifiers, making them the next collaborate to fill the region’s empty slot.

Seeding for the group stage was not affected at all by this alternative and B8 will have their work cut out for them in their round one match against Team Unique on June 18.
