"Natus Vincere is a special organization to me. Since their formation, we have often bumped into each other at different IEM and DH championships and reached finals of the majority of those. It was then when we got closer with Na`Vi’s CS players in terms of mutual support and morale. While playing important matches in quarterfinals, semis and finals, I always knew that Edward, markeloff, Zeus, starix, ZeroGravity and ceh9 were supporting us from behind. Na`Vi is something that’s close to my heart.
I would like to thank Na`Vi’s management for giving me the opportunity to join such a great organization. Despite tough times, it is still on top and I hope I will be able to contribute to its further development.
I believe that Quake Champions will evolve into a solid professional esports title which will be well worth spending time on. Let’s go!"
