Na`Vi cancels Skopje CS Masters
After deciding to leave fnatic PLAY league 2012 yesterday, Natus Vincere has now decided to withdraw from Skopje CS Masters as well.
Skopje CS Masters is taking place in the Macedonian capital on May 12-13 with a total of 7,000€ up for grabs. Natus Vincere were the heavy favorites going into the event, which now sees the level of competition even out more, leaving their fellow Ukrainian countrymen KerchNET as the favorites.
On their website, management of Na`Vi stated the same reasons that led to them canceling participation in FCL, are indirectly why they are unable to attend Skopje CS Masters on the coming weekend.

They went on to state that the main reason for not attending is because they have never taken a competition lightly, and do not wish to attend a tournament without being able to properly prepare for it, which is the case now due to Yegor "markeloff" Markelov's vacation and another player's real life issues.
Natus Vincere also turned down an invitation to the $10,000 3rd Generation Intel Core Challenge by Inferno Online tournament earlier due to Skopje CS Masters, so these recent weeks have seen the Ukrainians skip three different tournaments.
