Na´Vi change name to... Na´Vi

February 14th, 2010 09:41

Na'Vi have announced Natus Vincere as the name for the team, which will allow them to keep their original tag.

The complete name, which in Latin means "born to win", was not suggested by anyone, but the hint came from one of's users, namely Portuguese user Bruno "hArtik" Estevens.

This means the Ukrainian team, who are currently competing in Arbalet Cup February in Moscow, will keep their original Na'Vi clan tag, which was a request from many community members.

Users at and had a week to submit their suggestions of a new name for the Ukrainian team, previously known as Arbalet UA.

Estevens will now be contacted by Natus Vincere, who will reward him with a personal prize, to be discussed with him.

Natus Vincere are as follows:

Ukraine Sergey "starix" Ischuk
Ukraine Danylo "Zeus" Teslenko
Ukraine Arsenij "Esenin" Trynozhenko
Ukraine Ioan "Edward" Sukharev
Ukraine Yegor "markeloff" Markelov

:| this tag is quite silly if u ask me.. 1 its ugly, and 2 it reminds of an overrated movie with blue cat people. blue cat people + counter-strike O_O

Good name but I dont understand why there was any competition at all if somebody who wasnt even participating could win.
2010-02-14 10:00
They just wanted a name, they got inspired by a comment, and even acknowledged that, I do not see the problem..

boa hartik! ;)
2010-02-14 10:46
I was hoping they wouldn't reuse Na'vi since there were definitely some better suggestions in the threads. Seems like they really wanted to reuse it though. The loose translation fits the needs but it's just a clan tag so whatever. I just hope they can keep winning :D
2010-02-14 10:49
nice tag, i hope its right :) GL

Help Na'Vi find a name... over 1200 suggestions later our new name is Na'Vi! are u kidding me?
2010-02-14 11:24
They didnt have a name only fun tag, now they have name - "Natus Vincere".
2010-02-14 11:51
It's totally okay, most of the other suggestions were shit like Elite Assassins, Ucrainian Angels, Superkillers, WepwnU and so on. Would have been so embarrasing for them.
2010-02-14 13:06
lol yea ur right its weird, but it's hilarious the way ur saying it. however their name is still cool even tho its recycled. well at least its recycled from something that is not a trash can. and its their own 'not trash can'.

not to be harsh but the tag/clan name kind of shows how professional they are "born to win", lol? As long as they attend arbalet maybe. Na'Vi? Such an allusion on the movie makes it kind of sad. People commit suicide because they want to be a blue man with tail, who in their right mind would create a semi-professional team named Na'Vi? They might aswell name themself "inglorious basterds" or "green street elite" haha. I hope 20th Century Fox pay them, else it's just sad tagging like that.
2010-02-14 12:18
lawl. Did you ever thought about names like "fnatic" or even "Ninjas in Pygamas" ? Both are legendary team but with funny names. Anyway I agree this is not the best name for pro team.
2010-02-14 12:30
+1. so clever to use the name of the creatures in this new movie, not. they should have just gone with something original and not copy other people's creation.
2010-02-14 17:44
actually i think the purpose of holding a naming contest is for advertising only, just look that thousands of comments submitted and i know they have a success on it, it's just my opinion though.
2010-02-14 12:35
epic fail , u asked from the whole community to suggest a name and u ignore all of us , and donot tell us that NA'VI was that u liked most.. next time nixon and crew be more serious about ur topics
2010-02-14 12:52
Uh? We just posted the news bit about it and gave our users a chance to participate, and one of our users did actually inspire them to finding their name, so what exactly is the problem?
2010-02-14 13:09
probaly because most of the names were like: killers0fDOOM and shit that sounds so incredibly bad, but in the minds of 12 year olds it sounds incredibly EPIC!
2010-02-14 15:26
Hey, Killers Of Doom is EPIC name! :)))

Actually, it's not the same name. Their full name is "Natus Vincere". This allowed them to keep their previous tag Na'Vi untouched.

i didnt understand the meaning of this change, but good luck
2010-02-15 00:08
That isn't even correct Latin
2010-02-15 00:35
I think it is more about the "idea" than about "correctness"... Though you are right, no 'Study in School boys and girls' campaign by them if the name in Latin is wrong (would be interesting to know the real right one!)
2010-02-15 02:20
Na'Vi is much better than Na'Vi ;)xD
2010-02-15 02:33
good luck , but tag is s... ;/
