Na`Vi Esports Camp participants determined
Natus Vincere have revealed the ten participants that have been selected to take part in their Esports Camp.
In early May, Natus Vincere announced the Na`Vi Esports Camp project, aimed at vetting five young talents for the organisation's academy squad, Na`Vi.Junior. Upon conclusion of the selection process that began on May 6, ten candidates for the bootcamp have emerged.
"In the end, we chose 25 for the online test; next, our psychologist talked with each candidate individually, determined their types and gave his opinion. Throughout the testing, the opinion proved to be correct almost all the time (the player would behave and demonstrate personal qualities, which correspond to the opinion given). As the testing went on, we were watching the communicative abilities of the players, their game sense, game IQ (understanding of the game), speed and quality of thinking, teammate interaction. The technical data of the players was important as well, so we uploaded the demos into an analytical program, DreamTeam, getting detailed statistics of their overall mastery.
"The final 10 is very impressive, I was pleasantly surprised with the guys’ game level. They all look incredibly promising."
The ten players, hailing from Russia and Ukraine, will undergo the Esports Camp from June 14 - August 30 in a bid to prove their capabilities. Upon conclusion of the bootcamp, five individuals will sign contracts with the Natus Vincere organisation, representing the yellow and black colours under the Na`Vi.Junior tag.
