More action keeps unfolding in Vienna with Na`Vi scoring wins over TeamCRT and n!faculty on de_train_se, while the latter has also defeated ESC Gaming on de_mirage_csgo.
While many have wondered about Natus Vincere's form in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive after their nearly two week long bootcamp in Kiev, they have so far surprised even the optimists with strong play.
Although their 16-6 win over TeamCRG didn't seem too dominating due to giving up five rounds as counter-terrorirsts, they still managed a respectable win despite losing a couple of close rounds.
When resuming their match against n!faculty hours after PC issues halted play at 3-3, they went on a 13-1 run to win the match 16-4, completely demolishing the Germans who have most recently qualified for ESEA finals.
Finally, n!faculty made sure the group would stay interesting until the very end as they came back from a 3-7 deficit on de_mirage_csgo to win a close 16-14 match versus ESC Gaming.
All that remains from the first group stage are ESC's awaited clash with Natus Vincere as well as n!faculty's date with TeamCRG, both of which are expected to go live any minute in Vienna.
