DreamHack Bucharest is considered to be one the last major international Counter-Strike 1.6 tournament; so when a legendary team like Natus Vincere (Na'Vi) pulls out of an event that important quite suddenly, the reasons must be acceptable.
Star player Yegor “markeloff” Markelov revealed this bit of information a day after finishing 2nd in the recently concluded Techlabs Cup Ukraine. Markelov and his teammates then decided to pullout of the upcoming DreamHack Bucharest which is slated to held in three weeks time to have some deserved rest. Prior to DH Bucharest, Na'Vi will participate in the PGS tournament in Oporto.
Markelov also stated in their Youtube channel:
“We will get back from a promotional tour in Dubai on October 6. We will then start a bootcamp before PGS.”
“After that, everybody will go home and we will cancel our participation at DH Bucharest.”
“There will be a 1.6 tournament and a side CS:GO competition in Bucharest, but there is a busy schedule, and ceh9 and I will not be at home for a month because of these trips.
"That is why we got together and decided not to go.”
Na'Vi has not made a commitment to switch to Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, while their Polish counterpart ESC Gaming already announced that they will adopt Valve's latest iteration of the FPS Classic. Markelov is not a fan of the game, but as he is a professional gamer, he may be forced to play it seeing that almost of their rivals have gone over.
“We have not decided anything about CS:GO yet. We will do it after the tournament in Portugal.”
“I have not played it yet, but I have watched some videos. It is not an interesting game at all. It is not CS at all, just another game.”
“Everything is different, and if I am to play this game, I should start doing it like from the beginning.”
“I do not want it [to play CS:GO], but if I have no choice, I will have to. CS has been a job for me for a long time.”
