Na'Vi take second place in Group А
In 15 minutes before the match teams chose a list of maps by the crossing method. After spinning a coin the teams in turns cross out maps from the list. The teams chose only one map out of three remaining ones, and the last map becomes decisive in case when the teams play the first two in a draw. Map drafting:
Natus Vincere started the de_dust2 map rather well and beat the rival in the first pistol round. Having exchanged the rounds, the teams ended up with a default draw [3:3]. The difficulties with the economy did not let the Ukrainian team play to the full, while G2.Kinguin were confidently increasing the leap [3:7]. Luck did not leave the team until the end of the first half [5:10]. Having lost a pistol round, the Natus Vincere players did not give up and managed to carry out a comeback to a [13:13] score, though the winner was not found during the regulation [15:15]. At the overtime periods Na’Vi turned out to be stronger [19:17]. The match was continued on pick of the Natus Vincere team de_train. Natus Vincere were the ones to take the pistol round, but it was followed by a successful force-buy by G2.Kinguin. The Ukrainian team immediately bounced back and set a [4:1] score. The European five would not manage to seize the initiative until the end of the first half [9:6]. On the attack side G2.Kinguin managed to force a fight and make a wonderful series of successful rounds, but Natus Vincere did gain the victory [16:14].
