Last year's defending champions Natus Vincere have been forced to skip World Cyber Games 2011.
The Ukrainian powerhouse's attendance had been in question ever since the team failed to win a spot in WCG Ukraine for the WCG grand final to be held in Busan, South Korea on December 8-11.
It had been rumoured they would still be able to attend due to being the reigning champions but according to a statement from the organization's CEO, Alexander "ZeroGravity" Kokhanovskyy, it will no longer be possible:
"On Monday, November 21st, I contacted WCG organizing committee to settle the details of our trip to Busan, South Korea. That time I was very surprized to know noone was waiting for us there. It looks like everything was planned 15 days prior the event and we can understand the organizers. But I still do not understand why noone contacted us to finalize the deadline for event participation." - Kokhanovskyy stated on the team's website.
You will however see Natus Vincere in action this week at MSI Beat It which will be held on November 25-26 at DreamHack Winter 2011 in Jönköping, Sweden where they have been placed in group C with the likes of fnatic and Moscow Five.

i think navi is affraid of not defending his title, if they don go to wcg that would mean they are still the title cuz noone beat them on wcg. thats my opinion... pls no ofence im noone fanboy
And further more WCG don't allow the teams to show there sponsors so I dont think the organizations earn so much money from there sponsors from there :(
anyway , 2011 the year of DTS.. not navi
sk will never dominate, like Na`Vi done in 2010.
They have only been on one WCG.
Not like "they´ve always been there"

No mouz, fnatic, esc, mtw and now navi.. we have lots of top teams missing... It'd be cool from the spectator's point of view, if WCG were to allow 1-2 foreign players in each team..
even if these teams play with stnad-in(s), those teams mostly wont perform as good..
also, they just created in 2010 so they can't been at WCG more than 1 time...
P.S. my bad english.
hmm, I agree navi is top 3 nowdays but I think everybody will miss them ^^

If it's correct, same should be for kuben who had cheated in the past, more stupid thing than ghosting... But still, fanboys remain fanboys :)

Money is what keeps a team alive and healthy. NaVi had unlimited support for over 2 years. They used to skip every small tournament before to study the rivalry and did great mainly because of that.
Now NaVi is facing the same scene as teams like Lions, ESC, DTS, Anexis, eSahara, WinFakt, mouz etc. They need to play where they can to either succeed or to do good for their sponsors and fans

a true world champion /facepalm
but he is a pro he should have known it is cheating
DH Winter 2011 > WCG 2011 4sure
I SK win DH, they're clearly the best team of 2011.
I think NaVi should have contacted WCG earlier. I don't know why they assumed that they were invited without talking with the organizers first. Its a NaVi`s fault, in my opinion.
"On Monday, November 21st, I contacted WCG organizing committee to settle the details of our trip to Busan, South Korea. That time I was very surprized to know noone was waiting for us there."
why would he be surprised to find out no1 was waiting for navi if they had gotten an invite? if they had gotten an invite people would be setting up the deatils on how they would be getting there and what hotel they would be staying at...but no1 did.....BC THEY WERENT INVITED.....learn to read.
nothing really forced them to skip except for money may be..

One of top3 teams don't attend :(
big loss on WCG
Post edited 2011-11-22 22:59:18
DTS attends, not a big deal, NaVi isn't making any impact this year anyway.
fnatic, Na`Vi, mousesports, Lions, WinFakt, ESC Gaming, Anexis
The better teams attending WCG are:
SK, AGAiN, Moscow Five, eSahara, Mandic, DTS, TyLoo
By the way, do someone know if Virtus.pro will go to WCG ?

Eat this, fcking hater.
What a blind and stupid hater O_O
They had a invite from the beginning, but the question was about money.
Then to them sent some prize money from some tournaments, but after organizers refused.
I believe to words markeloff, ceh9 and ZeroGravity. But your words and guesses, hater's words and guesses - nothing.
but if navi arrived, SK still would have won without any problems

We didn't see fnatic at WCG 2010, and what? xD
wcg is not the same without mtw f.e.
navi had 1 (ONE) great year and still are a top team even they are not nr1 ofc. but tbh i miss teams that are on the top prolevel forever now muuuch more than some newwaveretardkiddies.
without na'vi ... is like nothing!!!
I'd like to see starix colt action.
my opinion is that NaVi just don't want to play cs any more cause of low prize money for tournaments. practising hard only to cover road expenses. hope to see current NaVi team in some new shooter, maybe cs2.
Who reply me with words like"ghost", "ceh9" or smthng about this sh1t are retarded.
1st place DTS
2nd for krechNET
so that mean the both teams played well more than NaVi , so shut up who says it's not WCG without navi , n look at DTS what they will do ...
what this scumbag want ? :)
