#NAVIVLOG: Game vs Infamous, MagicaL & Crystallize afterwords
You know, lately I’ve been coming across comments like, “I’d like to have more content featuring the guys ans some casual conversations rather than typical interviews.” Do you want more content featuring the guys? Well, there you go. That’s a rocket. You wanted to see more of the players? But they don’t want it. Only Yana. I won’t take up too much of your time. In the last video, I asked a question about how many players present at this tournament have played for NAVI. The correct answer is 10: five players of our current roster, Mag who was on the very first iteration of NAVI, Fogged, Sneyking, 1437 and, of course, Dendi – which makes it 10. About 10 people have answered correctly, while the rest of you don’t know that. Shame on you. ES’s down. I’ll Force you. Focusing Morphling. I got aggroed. Chrono onto two! No Vessel on him. – Chain-stunning! – Nice! Good job. Push. No, you can just throne it. I’ll use my ult, take down the Ancient. I got stunned. Brood. Brood has no BKB. Alchemist carries big-time with Radiance at 10. I feel devastated, I think I should grab something to eat. – That’s a good draft, a game-winning one. – Yeah. Although this time it’s Clinkz instead of Alchemist, but it should a smooth game for him. We didn’t want to pick Alchemist into an enemy Nyx who can easily catch him with Carapace. The drafts are pretty similar, but the opponent made a few adjustments. Their offlane Axe didn’t really work out in the previous game, now it’s position 4. I think this will allow us to have even more edge in the laning stage, considering their supports are Nyx and Axe. – Nyx got the gem. – Yes. I sent the courier back to base, I don’t care. If it dies, it’ll be bad. Pick up Arcane rune. I can save you, if you use Supernova. I’m ulting, okay. Good job, guys. We need to finish the last one off. Go, go, go. I got Cheese. Stealing, stealing. Sorry for this game. You’re already in the top 3. – You’ve just secured $35,000. – How much did we have before this one? – $25,000. – Cool. – That was a game for extra $10,000. – How much is it in rubles? – I don’t know. – What about hryvnyas? – Multiply it by 28. In shekels? Were the games challenging? The last ones not so much I guess. We were confident coming into this series and we played confidently. Why did the opponent let you pick Treant and Phoenix again in Game 2? It’s my understanding that they had no problems with this duo, their main issue was Alchemist and so they probably wanted the same draft but without Alchemist. They had a pretty good draft they could’ve won with had they performed a little bit better. A month ago, many were talking about NAVI’s liminted hero pool. Well, we’re playing a series, there are a lot of heroes we don’t use, because if a strat works, why revealing other ones? Mag just said in an interview that Idan has greatly improved over the course of the past month. Do you agree with that? Give me your opinion. – Well, go ahead.
– Cover your ears then. He’s really improved from being a typical pub player into more of a team player. He steps in when needed and helps other lanes if they aren’t doing well. Yes, I feel that I’ve significantly improved, gained knowledge of certain match-ups, and got more confident in-game. Every game we analyze, gives me more understanding of where I was or was not supposed to be. I soak stuff up like a sponge, and yeah, I feel more confident. You’ve been here for 7 days now, aren’t you tired of this tournament format? You know, it only one series a day, but I guess it might be kind of tedious. We would’ve had a day off had we finished the group stage in first place. The schedule is pretty balanced, but it goes on for quite a while. I don’t know, I’m totally comfortable with all that. Had we made it out of the group in first place, we would’ve had a day off. And one more day off if we had beaten Tigers. So it’s well-balanced. Besidies, you play one series a day, the drive to the venue is about 20 minutes, a little longer with traffic. You can grab a bite after you finish playing, I don’t know, I feel comfortable.
