During the last few weeks a series of events has happened that lead into a major announce - on of the CIS powerhouses announce they are acquiring their PUBG squad. Na`Vi join the battlegrounds with GRUBIE joining the team.
Natus Vincere are pleased to announce the signing of the PUBG roster, featuring Vadim "POKAMOLODOY" Ulshin, Ivan "ubah" Kapustin, Dmitrii "Shade1" Roshchin and Sviatoslav "Drainys" Komissarov who formerly carried the GRUBIE tag.
The core trio of GRUBIE – namely, POKAMOLODOY, ubah, and Shade1 – have already made themselves known within the Playerunknown's Battlegrounds international scene, as they finished runners-up in PGL PUBG Invitational and secured a spot on LAN Global Loot League Season 1, which will be held in Bucharest on April 20-22 with $ 50 000 up for grabs.
Sviatoslav "Drainys" Komissarov, who joined the squad only recently, used to play on AVANGAR with whom he won IEM Katowice 2018.

Yevhen Zolotarov — Natus Vincere CEO:
"We've been looking closely at PUBG for a quite a long time since that is a very successful game in commercial terms, but we were not sure as to its competitive potential. When we saw some big organizations entering the scene, and a serious tournament ecosystem with such industry leaders as PGL and ESL developed – our doubts vanished.
As for the lineup, everything was clear. Everyone who I talked to about PUBG, including the managers of organizations which have already acquired such rosters, recommended signing GRUBIE. Plus, we've heard the same recommendations from our scout and the manager hired to work with the team.
There was a serious competition between those wishing to sign GRUBIE, and we're proud to have been chosen by the boys! They will be defending NAVI colors at the nearest event at Bucharest, and I want to wish Vadim, Dmitriy, Ivan, Svyatoslav, and Valeriya the best of luck! You've got a serious support from our side, and we will do our best to help you concentrate on victory. Reach your goals and see no obstacles!"
Vadim "POKAMOLODOY" Ulshin — Captain:
"We're happy to join one of the most powerful CIS organizations with such a huge fanbase! We set ourselves the highest goals and count on the support of both long-time fans and the new ones! We will try our best to show you our best game!"
Valeriia "Lera_X" Khegai — Manager:
"The competitive PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds is still at the early stage of development, but I believe in the immense potential of this title. Big thanks to Natus Vincere and Yevhen Zolotarov for believing in GRUBIE! The boys have repeatedly proven to be one of the strongest and most promising rosters in the international scene, and I'm sure that the support of the organization will help them become the best in professional PUBG. We will always fight for victory!"
