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.

Its DotA section was created in October 2010 with the pickup of Goblak, XBOCT, Mag~, Deff-, and Axypa. After Mag~ and Deff- left the team they instead acquired Danil "Dendi" Ishutin and Ivan "Artstyle" Antonov. The team was later invited to The International 2011, eventually 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.[1] The organization expanded to North America with their signing of the North American Rejects after qualifying for The International 2014, in June, 2014.[2] On December 5th that year, Natus Vincere announced that they were disbanding Na`vi.US.[3]

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.[4] The team quickly announced four days later that Dendi and SoNNeikO would be returning to help form a new Natus Vincere team.
