Natus Vincere (Latin for "born to win"), often abbreviated as Na`Vi, is a Ukranian multigaming organization which was founded in 2009 as a Counter-Strike team after the collapse of the team KerchNET. They are best known for their results from The International 2011 to The International 2014, during which they won 20 premier events and made it to the finals of 3 different Internationals. [note 1]

Overview

Na`vi's DotA section was created in October 2010 with the pickup of Goblak, XBOCT, Mag~, Deff-, and Axypa.[1] After Mag~ and Deff- left the team, they acquired Danil "Dendi" Ishutin and Ivan "Artstyle" Antonov. The team was later invited to The International 2011, winning it after defeating the Chinese team EHOME 3-1 in the finals.

On June 11th, 2013, Na'Vi picked up an all female team.[2] The organization expanded to North America with their signing of the North American Rejects after qualifying for The International 2014, in June, 2014.[3] On December 5th that year, Natus Vincere announced that they were disbanding Na`vi.US.[4]

After failing to qualify for the 2015 Frankfurt Major, Natus Vincere announced the departure of their Dota 2 squad on October 16th, 2015, leaving the organization rosterless for the first time since it's inception.[5] Four days later, Natus Vincere announced that Dendi and SoNNeikO would be returning to form a new team.

In July of 2016, Na'Vi overcame Team Secret 3-1 to win the StarLadder i-League StarSeries Season 2 in the BTS Studios, Los Angeles. This was their first tournament win since 2014, thus ending a 20 month drought of tournament wins.[6]
