Heading: Natus Vincere Shakes Things Up with Captain Swap
In the competitive world of professional Dota, anything less than a championship is a cause for concern. With the potential to earn $5 million, the pressure is even higher for top teams. That’s why Natus Vincere, a storied Dota team, has made a significant change in their lineup.
Natus Vincere, also known as Na’Vi, has replaced team captain Artem “FNG” Barshak with Arthur “Goblak” Kostenko. Barshak has struggled to achieve major victories since April, which prompted the decision for a lineup change. Kostenko, who previously played for Virtus.Pro Polar, has proven himself as a skilled drafter and leader, defeating several top teams in October.
Interestingly, the decision to replace Barshak comes right after Na’Vi’s first championship win in months. Despite his commendable performances in the tournament, Barshak was dismissed on Saturday during the Dota 2 Champions League in Bucharest, Romania.
The swap is undoubtedly a strategic move for Na’Vi’s future. Kostenko has showcased his leadership abilities and creativity in drafting multiple times. With Team Secret gaining strength, Na’Vi needs nothing but the best to stay competitive. Barshak can at least take solace in the fact that his time with one of the world’s most famous Dota organizations helped secure their first title.
