About

Natus Vincere, Latin for “born to win,” was initially formed in December 2009 from the remaining members of Ukrainian organization KerchNET. Under the patronage of Murat “Arbalet” Tulemagnbetov, Na`Vi’s initial members would become fixtures of the organization for close to a decade, most notably Danylo "Zeus" Teslenko, Ivan "Edward" Sukharev, and Sergey "starix" Ischuk.

Prior to the release of Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, the team boasted four of the top twenty players in the world. Na’Vi’s early time in Global Offensive was unimpressive, but the team became an international contender in 2015.

Throughout the 2015 season, Na`Vi had an impressive run of placements. The CIS roster started off the year strong by taking home first place in the inaugural season of the ESL Pro League, defeating Titan 2-1 in the grand finals. The rest of the year included 18 top-four finishes, making Na`Vi one of the most dangerous teams in the CSGO landscape at the time.

2016 saw Na`Vi continue its run of form. The team made the grand finals in five of six tournaments it attended and added two first-place finishes to its trophy case, winning Counter Pit League Season 2 and DreamHack Open Leipzig. Na`Vi would lose in the finals to Fnatic twice in this span. Despite fielding a roster that consisted of one of the best AWPers in the world in Ladislav “Guardian” Kovács, Na`Vi’s tactical prowess seemed to lack the depth required to consistently win. After making the grand finals of two majors in a row at both DreamHack Cluj-Napoca and MLG Columbus 2016, Na`Vi would struggle for almost two years to follow.

Between the second half of 2016 and the start of 2017, Na`Vi continually failed to live up to their name as teams like SK Gaming and Astralis began their rise to the top. The team would place poorly at ESL One Cologne 2016, finishing behind North America’s first grand finals team in Liquid and future Na`Vi member Oleksandr “s1mple” Kostyliev. After the event, Na`Vi welcomed s1mple, marking the start of his maturity into a consistent top-ten player in the world. To make room for s1mple, Na`Vi cut ties with Zeus, a move that would come back to haunt the organization several months later.

Na`Vi would fail to place inside the top 10 at the PGL Krakow Major and watched as Zeus took home a Major title of his own with Gambit Esports. Even outside of CSGO’s Majors, the team performed poorly over the period, consistently failing to finish inside the top five.

Na`Vi finally managed to crack the top set of teams again at the ELEAGUE Boston Major but lost to a FaZe roster that would make the grand finals of the event.

Over the 2018 summer, Na`Vi hit a peak. After three wins in a row at StarLadder iLeague StarSeries Season 5, the CSGO Asia Championships 2018, and ESL One Cologne 2019, Na`vi had officially arrived. Although not a consistent team after that point, the showing proved that if its talent could be focused the team could do real damage in international competition, though its overreliance on s1mple had created a team whose performance depended on his form. This dependence on only a single player led to a team that was dangerous one minute and flat the next, resulting in performances ranging from a first-place finish at BLAST Copenhagen 2018 to a crushing last place at StarSeries Season 8.

At the end of the year, Zeus, who had returned to the roster after his major win, and GuardiaN, who had also left and spent time with FaZe before returning to Na`Vi, were again released by the team. In their place, Na`Vi would create what had the potential to be the most explosive CIS team Counter-Strike had ever seen. The Ukrainian organization would add in-game leader Kirill “boombl4” Mikhailov and young star Ilya “Perfecto” Zalutsky to its core of s1mple, Denis “electronic” Shaipov, and Egor “flamie” Vasilev.

In addition, the organization would move Andrey “B1ad3” Gorodenskiy to the coaching role. These changes turned Natus Vincere into a consistent top-five finisher over the latter half of 2019 and into 2020. 

In one of the most impressive performances in modern CSGO, Na`Vi decimated the number-one ranked Astralis at IEM Katowice 2020, only allowing 10 rounds over two maps, before taking the best of five grand finals 2-0 against a resurgent Team Vitality.
