I'm gonna go out on a limb and say that the CT side has always been the problem for NAVI and that in EPL their T side looked terrible because they were trying new stuff.
I say this because NAVI usually struggle on the CT more often than not. Nuke is the only exception. And sometimes dust2 as well. But on Inferno, Overpass, and MIrage, their T side is better most of the time. So NAVI starting Inferno on CT side doesn't give me any guarantee. I mean, they couldn't close out vs FURIA after pulling off 3 T rounds on the first OT. Nuke has always been an Heroic specialty so a stomp is extremely unlikely. And if I take the first map as a reference, NAVI is lacking the firepower to do it. boombl4, elec and b1t were missing on the first map.
