History

In October 2010, the creation of a DotA squad was announced, which included the best Ukrainian players.[1] Na`Vi simultaneously declared their intentions to announce a squad for StarCraft 2. Initially the team included five players, but in December 2010, Mag~ and Deff- left the team.[2] The empty slots on the team were filled by Ukrainian players from DTS.Chatrix - Danylo "Dendi" Ishutin and Ivan "Artstyle" Antonov, who became the captain of this new squad.[3]

In August 2011, Na`Vi.DotA was invited to the first Dota 2 tournament at GamesCom, Cologne, Germany. The event named "The International" featured 16 invited top teams from all over the world with impressive amount of prize money - $1,600,000. Na`Vi.DotA was the ultimate winner, beating Chinese team EHOME with 3 to 1 score in the final and grabbing a whopping amount of $1,000,000.

On October, 13th, 2011, Artstyle left the team.[4] The captain position was taken up by Puppey, and ARS-ART took the fifth slot on the roster.

Na'Vi attempted to defend their crown at The International 2012, where they placed 2nd, losing to Invictus Gaming 3-1 in the Grand Finals.

In February 2013, Funn1k from Team Empire joined the team, replacing ARS-ART.[5] KuroKy from Mousesports also joined the team, while LighTofHeaveN went inactive.[6]

In April 2013, after his contract expired, LighTofHeaveN officially left for Team Empire.

In June 2013, Na'Vi picked up an all-female squad.[7]

In June 2014, Na'Vi picked up the North American Rejects team, forming their new Dota 2 squad, Na'Vi.US.[8]

In August 2014, KuroKy and Puppey left Na'Vi.[9][10]
