History
In October 2009 Murat Zhumashevich, a philanthropist from Kazakhstan, came up with the idea of creating a professional esports team at the Intel Extreme Masters tournament in Dubai. He was willing to become the main sponsor: to provide the players with a training ground, pay them salaries and logistics costs. Kyiv resident Serhiy starix Ishchuk was the first to respond to the offer. The sponsor set him with the task of forming a star team.

On December 17, 2009, Natus Vincere (Latin "born to win") was formed around the CS: GO team. The first lineup of NAVI included five Ukrainian players: Edward, markeloff, starix, ceh9 and Zeus. Oleksandr Kokhanovsky from Kyiv (ZeroGravity) became the manager.
