It will hardly be plain sailing for the team, however,
Kovács has been struggling with a hand injury that hampered his performance at last weekend's MLG Columbus major, and on Monday stated that he was unlikely to be competing with his team. With Malmö just a week away, Na`Vi would have struggled to find a replacement for the $250,000 event.
The team announced today, however, that Kovács would be competing after all—but that he would not be able to practice at all in the run up to the event. He will also undergo what's only been described as "necessary treatment", according to the statement on Na`Vi's website.
Kovács also revealed on Twitter that he played with mouse sensitivity turned up 400 percent during the MLG major to reduce the strain on his hand.Fnatic has already withdrawn from the event due to a hand injury to Olof "olofmeister" Kajbjer.
On paper, Group D is the most even group, with top seed EnVyUs coming off a disappointing group stage elimination in Columbus. They will face Virtus.pro and FaZe, two other teams that failed to shine in Columbus, and upstarts Tempo Storm.
