NaVI make changes to their Dota2 roster

NaVi have announced changes to their Dota2 roster. They have been trialling several players since the last few weeks. With several players being a part of the trials, they have finally announced their final and completed roster.

The NaVi Dota2 roster is :

  • Ukraine Vladislav “Crystallize” Krystanek
  • Ukraine Danil “Dendi” Ishutin
  • Ukraine Viktor “GeneRaL” Nigrini
  • Russian Federation Vladimir “RodjER” Nikogosyan
  • Russian Federation Akbar “SoNNeikO” Butaev


  • Ukraine Alexander “XBOCT” Dashkevich (coach)
  • Ukraine Dmitry “Dakota” Shymko (analyst)
  • Ukraine Igor “caff” Sydorenko (manager)

NaVi CEO :

At last, we’ve finalized the tryouts and can announce two new players of the roster: RodjER and Crystallize are the newcomers. Dota 2 fans know Vladimir pretty well, because he used to play for Team Empire. He transferred to NaVi from this team. Vladislav, on the other hand, has not had much exposure on the pro scene. Nevertheless, he demonstrated good and mature performance during the practices. This fact influenced our decision to invite him to NaVi. I am sure that the players will meet our expectations and will earn us the long-awaited titles. 

I also want to inform the fans, who were worried, if we would participate in the qualifiers to the first Minor tournaments. Tomorrow the players will gather for the bootcamp and will play the qualification games there. Wait for a more detailed information in the near future. Finally, I’d like to express my sincere gratitude to our dedicated fans for their patience and I kindly ask to support our new line-up, since support helps people not to lose their hearts, to become stronger and work twice as hard. This is your contribution to the future success of the team. We’ll do everything that depends on management and the team to succeed”.
