Na`Vi vs CLG.eu Grand Final [First Bo3 games 2 and 3]
I am still trying to find a VOD of the first game in the first Bo3 in the grand final! There has been a mix up in their Twitch channel.
Na`Vi vs CLG.eu [Game 3] (this was the only game streamed by the official stream)
Na`Vi vs TSM [Games 1-3]
All of the games are very entertaining and we hope that you enjoy watching them. Go Na`Vi!
- Warpath (Passive) – Hecarim ignores unit collision and gains attack damage equal to a percentage of his bonus movement speed.
- Rampage – Hecarim cleaves nearby enemies dealing physical damage.
- Spirit of Dread - Hecarim deals magic damage to nearby enemies for a short duration. Hecarim gains health equal to a percentage of any damage those enemies suffer.
- Devastating Charge - Hecarim gains increasing movement speed for a short duration. His next attack knocks the target back and deals additional physical damage based on the distance he has traveled since activating the ability.
- Onslaught of Shadows (Ultimate) - Hecarim summons spectral riders and charges forward, dealing magic damage in a line. Hecarim creates a shockwave when he finishes his charge, dealing additional magic damage to nearby enemies causing them to flee in terror.
I think many people expected a new ranged AD champion, but here it is, a new bruiser/jungler. What do you guys think about Hecarim?

My name is Victor, going online as Citizen/CitizenWayne, im 21 years old and playing the AP Carry for Na'Vi.
What was the first online game that you played competitively?
It actually is League of Legends. I was always playing a lot of computergames, and was always really good at them, but neither did they have the competetive appeal of LoL, nor was i willing to spend enough time for practising, only to enter a semiprofessional scene.
What did your friends say when you told them that you are a pro gamer?
Becoming a progamer isn't exactly a decision, even if many people say that, you get kind of dragged into it in my opinion. If you are better than the huge majority of players, you automatically get recruited at some point, and if you keep enjoying the game under the new competetive circumstances youll keep getting better and will eventually end up being a professional gamer.Its the same for your friends, at first they just think you really enjoy playing games, and once you are sent to the first tournaments in foreign countries, you and them realise :"damn I'm/he is a progamer" , and at this point its already so much fun and you get so much out of it that theres not much room to be sceptical, only women have the divine right to dislike gaming, but even that can be fixed after some persuasion that your not THAT much of a nerd :DD.
What are you studying?
Nothing flash unfortunately :P,I'm studying economics, working towards my bachelor at the moment.
It must be hard to schedule your time for studying, spare time and gaming. How do you manage it?
Well most people have to work during their time in university, same goes for me. I just replaced the boring job in the office with a job I really enjoy at some point of time, and so far i dont regret anything concerning my gaming career.
What do you like to do in your spare time?
Prepare for a nerdy answer :x. I'm really into movies, literature and music, also got a special thing going for great food. Besides that the usual stuff, going out with friends if the club/event is any good, hanging out, love travelling and generally meeting new people and experiencing new stuff. I also like playing tennis (I KNOW THATS HARD TO BELIEVE ).
What are your favourite champions?
Karthus, Morgana, Galio because they are really op and safe in the laning, i generally like having a good laner because it enables you to put more emphasis on the other aspects of the game. I also like the matchups where im clearly in the disadvantage at the beginning, i guess thats why i love veigar,its just really difficult to make it work out. New favorites are Ziggs, Kog Maw and Fizz.
Have you always played AP carry in competitive play?
Yes i decided really early on the role i would play competetive, in every game i ever played the int/mage champs were the most interesting to me and in LoL especially i enjoy having a challenging role with a ton of champions which are all played differently.
Your first offline event under Na`Vi flag is getting closer and closer. Are you excited about it and is this going to be your first offline event in general?
I am really excited about it, the team is going to meet each other personally for the first time and i feel that it is really important. Also the first offline tournament as a new team is just something really important especially for the more unexperienced players. I was playing on a lot of offline events with my old team und the organisation of Acer, the most exciting one was to represent germany in the World Cyber Games in Korea.
Do you think meeting each player in real life will help you improve as a team, especially improve communication and teamplay?
Yes, most definitively. Its just way easier to judge the actions of another person if you know the persons face and behaviour and everything . Kind of takes the anonymity completely away, which is a good thing.
What are your expectations and goals for the tournament and who do you think is the favourite or who would you consider the toughest opponent?
We are going to France with the goal to win this damn thing , everything else would be the wrong approach. Absolute Legends will probably be the toughest opponents since they've had a really good run lately, but of course there are many strong teams participating.
Thank you for your time Victor! Do you have any shoutouts to your fans and sponsors? And of course, I wish you all the best in France!
A big Thank you to our sponsors who make all of this possible, a big Thanks to the people backing us up and rooting for us, a big Thanks to the organisation of Na'Vi for the great support and a special shoutout to my grandmother . Thank you for the interview!
First of all, could you please introduce yourself?
Sure, my name is Rasmus, but I play under the tag nesrilaS, I play the solo top position for our league of legends squad.
Which was the first game, that you played?
I guess that was a SNES game, probably a Zelda or Super Metriod one.
What are your favourite champions?
I really like champions such as Irelia, Wukong and Ahri, they are very strong picks and they have various playstyles and roles they can work towards. I generally like champions that have more than one path to take once you've picked them
How hard it is to coordinate between school, progaming and personal life, and still to be successful in all three?
Its definitely not easy, when you're such a young team as we are you really have to dedicate a lot of time to improve, so I've tried to prioritize this as much as possible, which may have caused some slack in other areas of my life, but its all about knowing what you want in your life and then planning accordingly in my opinion.
What is your favourite activity in spare time?
My sparetime is mainly used on LoL, when we are not playing as a team I often play alone and try to improve my play or widen my hero pool, but othe than that I enjoy good movies, hanging out with friends and drinking lots of beers
When did you realize, that you want to become a pro gamer, or did it all happen spontaniously?
It was a gradual thing, I was mainly playing around with some friends or alone in solo queue, quickly made it to the top of the ladder, ended up befriending a lot of other good players, started playing smaller tournaments and so forth with them. From then on it just snowballed to today where im part of one of the greatest esports organizations.
When you started playing LoL, what would you say to a person if he/she said to you, that in 2 years, you will be playing professionally for Na`Vi?
I wouldn't have believed it, LoL was a fairly new and unbalanced game when I started and I had never been more than a enthusiastic amateur with other dota-like games, but the game and I myself improved a lot.
Yesterday, you won SK-trophy with a smashing performance. What were your expectations going into the cup?
Our expectations were mainly just to play and do our best, as of right now we still think we have a lot things to improve on and winning prizes is not the primary concern, but its nice to know that we are already one of the super powers of the european league of legends pro scene.
You guys are soon leaving to France, for your first offline event under the flag of Na`Vi. Have you ever been to an offline event of such proportions, or is this your first offline event in general?
I have been to many events, but this is only my second time playing at one, the first one being the german EPS finals, where I had the pleasure of playing with SAND and meeting CitizenWayne.
What are your goals for Gamers Assembly? Do you think you can keep up with yesterday’s performance or even improve?
Our primary goal with Gamers Assembly is mainly to get experience at an offline event together, secondary I think we'd all like to place in the top 3, but I believe anything is possible.
Rasmus, thank you for your time! Do you have any shoutouts to your fans and sponsors? And of course, I wish you all the best in France!
Id like to thank the people that have already started following our progress as a team, watching our streams and chatting with us on IRC and on the Na`Vi forums, its really nice to have such great support already. I'd also like to thank everyone at Na`Vi and their respective partners, they are awesome guys who have been really supportive and helpful ever since we first met.
