The new Majors and Minors system means that the number of possible tournaments for Dota2 teams has increased by a huge number. NaVI have already qualified for several tournaments and are in the process of being qualified for a few more in the upcoming weeks. This means that they have the liberty of making sure they can choose which tournaments they want to attend.
Natus Vincere G2A’s upcoming tournaments:
- ESL One Hamburg 2017 [qualifier]: September 23–24,
- The Perfect World Minor [qualifier]: September–October,
- DreamLeague Season 8 [qualifier]: September–October,
- StarLadder i-League Invitational [LAN]: October 12–15,
- PGL Open Bucharest [LAN]: October 19–22.
As a result, they have decided to withdraw from WCA 2017.
