Na’Vi Announces Entry Into Rocket League with Former Fadeaway Roster
Natus Vincere (Na’Vi) is entering Rocket League esports with the former Fadeaway roster that was competing in Rocket League Championship Series (RLCS) events. The Fadeaway roster were able to secure wins at the qualification for the RLCS 2020-21 Fall event which will feature a prize pool of $100,000 USD. The decider matches for the event will take place from 22nd to 24th October 2021.
Na’Vi Rocket League Roster Overview
The new roster features the following players:
Maik “Tigreee” Hoffmann (captain)
Luis “LuiisP” Puente Peña
Lorenzo “Dead-Monster” Tongiorgi
Simon “s1moN” Bicking (coach)
Vlad “TheVs” Moroz (manager)
Tigreee has been competing in the Rocket League pro scene since 2018 and he has previously played for organizations like Team Secret, MOUZ and AS Monaco Sports. The Na’Vi captain has won the Rocket League Rival Series, Gfinity United Kingdom Elite Series along with other championships for a total earnings of nearly $54,000 USD from Rocket League esports.
LuiisP and Dead-Monster made their first major appearance in Rocket League esports at the TCS Esports League where LuiisP won the season five championship while Dead-Monster was the season six champion. The trio will be coached by s1moN who has previously worked with Tigree during his time at MOUZ and AS Monaco Esports. He is one of the most experienced coaches in the Rocket League esports scene.
Tigree revealed during the official announcement “Joining such a legendary brand as NAVI and introducing them into Rocket League is something I always dreamed of. Feeling super thankful to have this opportunity and I will give everything in my power to make this count!”
The new Na’Vi roster is far from being one of the RLCS favorites this year but it surprised everyone by making its way out of the open qualifiers in Europe which is one of the most competitive regions for Rocket League esports. Tigree, LuiisP and Dead-Monster are individually among the most talented European players in Rocket League and Na’Vi fans will have to wait and see if the trio synergize together as a team.
The new Na’Vi roster will be seen competing in the RLCS 2020-21 Fall decider matches which commence on 22nd October. Fans who want to catch up on all of the RLCS action and watch Na’Vi compete live can visit: https://www.twitch.tv/rocketleague
