Natus Vincere’s offlaner Victor “GeneRaL” Nigrini spoke about the team's preparations for the Dota Pro Circuit 2021: Season 1. In an interview (Twitch) after the victory over Team Unique, he commented on the drafts of the last match, and also named the strongest line-ups of the CIS after NAVI and Virtus.pro.
GeneRaL noted that Natus Vincere had some draft difficulties on the second map of the meeting with Unique, but that did not affect the result:
"I think we definitely won the first draft. There may have been some problems on the second card, but personally I felt just fine in the game. I wouldn't say we had bad heroes."
According to Nigrini, the third and fourth place in the region is occupied by Team Spirit and Live to Win:
"Team Spirit is third and the fourth is SoNNeikO's Live to Win team."
Navi's r added that the team has been on the bootcamp since January 15 and will remain on the game base until the end of the DPC season:
"We started training about a week ago. I don't think we're in the best shape, but we're working. A new patch has come out, new heroes in meta, so we are trying new ideas."
In the first match at DPC 2021: Season 1 for CIS Natus Vincere beat Team Unique 2-0. In the next match, the team will fight NoTechies.
