they want 7-10 days off between every event to maintain their system
they didnt want to play in tier 2 tournament and decided to focus on blast
they let others experience a sense of victory
navi is already invited to katowice
"The most notable omission from the tournament is Natus Vincere, as the CIS squad has seemingly decided to prioritize the $425,000 BLAST Premier Fall Final and the $1,000,000 BLAST Premier World Final over the $250,000 IEM that happens in between the two. Worth noting is that the current No. 1 team is the only one that has already locked in their spots at both BLAST events, putting them in a unique situation."
they refused to play at this event. They were invited
to have a break from playing too many tournaments
Why would they want to play a useless event for them
Less Prize Pool also no Crowd
So they don't overheat for blast global finals.
players played Major and then Blast... time for some time off and to work on things
