Unfortunately, due to extenuating circumstances, Natus Vincere’s captain, Ivan “ArtStyle” Antonov, was unable to make the trip to the MarsTV Dota 2 League, in Shanghai, China.
MarsTV were able to make the best of the situation, and were able to secure a replacement for Natus Vincere: LT from Energy Pacemakers. However, Na’Vi were eliminated early in the group stage, with a 0-4 score. They will receive $6,000 for participating.
