    Disappointing performance at TI, thought they could do better than that. Best of luck to them this season, glad Na`Vi finally stuck to its roster.

    I expected a lot better from them at TI; but maybe since a lot of the other Tier 1 teams are new and inexperienced with their fresh rosters, NaVi can successfully qualify/be invited and do well at the Boston Major.

    Really happy they stuck together, I think they still have some growing to do as a team.

    So long as Dendi brings his A-game I think this team can go far.

    Seriously, I think General should expand his hero pool. Sonneiko stops tilting. Dendi, as the symbol of Navi, is the one I expect and disappoint most. He needs to keep up with the other mid players.

    After all, I hope the team will go to top 3 in this major.

    I think General's hero pool size wise is sufficient enough. His biggest issue is farming. He can be the top farmer on the map in the first 10 minutes of the game but then his networth falls down to the level of a support.

    I am not sure who I want to play on 4th position. I think Artstyle and Sonneiko are both amazing in that role. Sonneiko is arguably more reliable I guess but Artstyle is appealing to watch. Having said that, I'd like to see one of them play more of Earthshaker, Night Stalker and a hero like Undying.

    In the recent months, I think Dendi has been very consistent with his performance. I don't recall him losing his lane or lagging behind in the gold department. He can execute Navi's gameplan on both spacemakers and greedy mid heroes which a lot of players are inadept to do.

    I think Ditya is solid but he doesn't seem to have developed an ability to solo carry the games. He relies on one of his teammates to make an enermous impact on the game before he can be proclaimed as one of the key players on the map.

    Na'vi's heavily reliant on the success of their laning stage. This is the part of the game which adds fuel to the fire for at least 3 of their players. They are momentum based team. This is their biggest strength and also weakness. If none of them have a good game at the start then I think they just get lost all together and begin hosting a feed fest. I believe that the boys can reset and put some top notch results this season. EG will probably their biggest enemy because of their substantial ability to turtle objective based teams; however, if Navi enhance their confidence and team's cohesion then EG might not be so yearning to face them as well.

    At this rate, no way NaVi or Liquid qualify, and they are my two favourite Euro teams :(

    I hope they have a 'miracle' turn around and qualify.

    Hopefully secret dont qualify :) Would be very pleased with that.

    So, Secret got their asses delivered to them. This team has the composition, not too many stupid mistakes like they did in the past. Team is consistent, even if they loose, they fight it through.

    But thats what happened on the last shuffle(When GeneraL joined) they look good for a while but then the team just flops. I wish they would get more consistent, so after those first months the team could keep the level.

    Bumping considering good performance by the squad.

    Navi after the OP (With pajkatt biver rmn) and the next after(with sonneiko return) perform poorly.

    But after TI with crystalize /rodjer/ xbocy coach play quite well...

    They at least able to qualified on some major/minor altough not at liquid/secret/mineski tier.

    Dunno about chinese since they doesnt really look as strong as they are in TI7..
