Today we have an important announcement to make that will rock your world. However, we feel that it’s deeply important that you are in the proper headspace before we are able to continue...
Are you a blubbering mess of feels yet?
It is anticipated that this did not have the impact we were looking for. In all probability, 99.9% of you saw Dolly Parton and scrolled past. But with all the hype built up, we can now get to the point.
It is with great sadness, happiness, hope for the future and nostalgia of the past that we are announcing that Nathaneal ‘BurningRed’ Slabbert will be stepping down from the management level of nAv Gaming to focus entirely on nAvTV. Colin ‘Mr T’ Gloss and Nick ‘Crimsoon’ Swart will be taking over as the new partnership owners and the day-to-day management of nAv Gaming.
Before any of you are alarmed by this news, calm down and bring it back a little. Nathaneal is not leaving nAv Gaming entirely and will always be a valuable member of the family as a co-founder, but one could say it was simply time. Below are the wise words from BurningRed himself on his decision to leave and what’s ahead for nAv Gaming and nAvTV:
Since 2003 when I started nAv it's been my biggest passion and focus. To create a competitive organisation in South Africa that stood to the challenge and compete against the best. I fulfilled that goal with the help of each and every gamer that has represented us.
nAv Gaming is not just a name to some, but for someone like me, a lifestyle. Endless hours of training and hard work that is done by all the members, to which I commend and respect. It's not easy running a big scale MGO and still walk away unscathed. It batters you, morphs you as a leader and most of all makes you respect your fellow gamer, regardless of differences.
I wish the new partners the best of luck and support with the management of nAv Gaming. It will be a hard task to take nAv to the top. But I think they can do it as I have the utmost faith in them. These partners have been with nAv since the start and know what it takes to make it.
My presence in nAv will never disappear. As mentioned I am still in the background, helping, building and marketing the brand. My focus now has shifted to nAvTV. This is where I believe the nAv Gaming Brand needs the new blood and direction.
I also wish all the gamers of nAv Gaming good luck and support, for I know it's soon, that nAv Gaming will rise to be on top!
Keep on Gaming Boys and Girls!
Nathaneal "BurningRed” Slabbert

In the mean time, as we look to a bright and glorious future, we leave you with this message...
