Dota 2 commentator Vitaly «V1lat» Volochay considers Natus Vincere the undisputed favorite of the first season of Dota Pro Circuit 2021/2022 for Eastern Europe. He wants to bet that NaVi would go through the DPC Winter Tour 2021/22 unbeaten.
«No matter how it sounds, with this roster NAVI can’t be defeated in the first season of DPC EEU 2021/22. They will take 1st place with a large margin. There will be a struggle for 2nd and 3rd place. Spirit is now resting, the team is concentrated on playing CS:GO. VP has just started to rebuild, they need to somehow get out of the hole in which they planted themselves with the defeat at The International. AS Monaco Gambit – we don’t understand what it is and how this hodgepodge will work. Who should outplay NaVi, who trained even during The International? Solo trained with the team before and after the broadcast. This team is active and plays a lot,» – V1lat said.
The NAVI roster was announced in September 2021. It includes Alik «V-Tune» Vorobey, Vladimir «No[o]ne» Minenko, Victor «GeneRaL» Nigrini, Ilya «ALOHADANCE» Korobkin and Alexey «Solo» Berezin. Ivan «ArtStyle» Antonov will be coaching the team. The roster is already registered for DPC EEU 2021/2022 Winter Tour on the official Valve website.
