Esports organisation Natus Vincere has revealed big changes to their Dota 2 roster, as Evgenii 'Chuvash' Makarov has been moved into an inactive position as Emil 'Zayac' Emilzhanov comes in to replace him as a transfer from Pango.

Akbar 'SoNNeikO' Butaev is also coming back to the team after missing ESL One Mumbai because of health issues, and will join Zayac who has a lot of experience with squads like MVP Revolution and Vega Squadron.

The squad will be training at a bootcamp in Kiev shortly, and here's what Dota 2 manager Igor 'Caff' Sydorenko had to say on the move:

"It happens sometimes that a team reaches a certain limit and in order to progress further, it is necessary to make some changes. Chuvash is a good player and a teammate, I wish him good luck and I am sure he will be able to fully open up as a player in a new team."

Is this a good move for the team?
