Na`Vi to upper final over HR

Natus Vincere join fnatic in the upper bracket final following a 2-0 win over HellRaisers (16-6 de_dust2, 16-14 de_inferno).

Natus Vincere started off as Counter-Terrorists on the first map, de_dust2, and it was Ladislav "GuardiaN" Kovács and Sergey "starix" Ischuk who kicked it off with two doubles on long to go on a 4-0 early lead with HellRaisers trying to find an opening in the first gunround.

A B split was met with the crossfire from Denis "seized" Kostin and Ioann "Edward" Sukhariev on the B bombsite, but Yegor "markeloff" Markelov made up for it in the following round with two instant headshots in a one-on-two following HR's attack purely from upper dark to B.

starix didn't leave HellRaisers any room to breathe, as they were trying to fake split, and he flanked them for four kills in total to get his team to a six-round lead at 7-1.

markeloff helped his team rack up two rounds in a row with five kills combined, which eventually put Na`Vi on a save, which was when GuardiaN scared his opponents with three P250 headshots near long double-doors.


Na`Vi sent a strong message towards the beginning of de_dust2

Towards the end of the half Na`Vi got three rounds out of four, mostly thanks to GuardiaN again, who ended the half with more than twenty kills, helping his team get to 10-5 at halftime.

Second half's pistol round saw Na`Vi trying to force HellRaisers to rotate and get a pick, but the only thing they met with was Dauren "AdreN" Kystaubayev and his USP-S' quick double headshot for 10-6.

Another attempt on a forcebuy second round opens up middle and B, but it was GuardiaN once again who made wonders in a one-on-two, as Mihail "Dosia" Stolyarov was left with no time to defuse for 11-6.

Only a won 5v5 afterplant by Na`Vi and GuardiaN's double in middle was standing in the way to take the victory on map one at 16-6 before switching over to de_inferno.

There it looked like a similar story, GuardiaN and Edward combined for a pistol round win and despite a scary eco, they completely shut down first gunround's attempt by HR in a fast mid-house push for 4-0.

Unsuccessful attempts continued despite Dosia getting good open frags, as a two-on-two was won by Na`Vi to take it to 6-0 before HellRaisers entered the scoreboard.

From four A pushes in a row, HellRaisers were able to convert two into a round win, while the remaining two were taken care of by GuardiaN and Danylo "Zeus" Teslenko for eventually 10-2 with a forcebuy and an eco thrown in.


GuardiaN fragged left and right in the series, finishing off with a 1.7 rating

A similar strategy to the one three rounds before seemed to have worked that time around for HellRaisers, as well as the following round - again on A - for 10-4, but that was when Na`Vi were forced to buy up MAG-7s and defended sucessfully at 11-4.

A completely chaotic pistol round saw Zeus getting caught with the bomb, which was then cut off from the rest of the team, and HellRaisers started coming back despite losing the following round yet again.

Natus Vincere tried to adjust and talk things through in an eco at 12-9, but they weren't able to convert thoughts into practice, as they ran out of time twice in a row for 12-12.

That time around Na`Vi switched to a faster gear, which paid off at the A bombsite for 13-12, but they ran out of time in the following round despite a successful fake, as HellRaisers denied the bomb plant in the last seconds.

An eco put HellRaisers back to a one-round lead, but it was GuardiaN yet again saving his team with a triple entry on the A bombsite for 14-14. A very unlikely win in the following round, when Na`Vi ended up in a three-on-four with low HP, helped them get over the top as HellRaisers were unable to buy up completely before getting dropped to the lower bracket at 16-14.

Good game. Na'Vi I'm happy that you won. Hellraisers good luck in next match. Btw. I lost skins.
2014-08-30 16:20
Good sport, obviously a true fan.
2014-08-30 16:23
Not a fan but I really like Na'Vi since CS 1.6.
2014-08-30 16:25
Was referring to just cs in general.
2014-08-30 16:28
Ahh you're 100% right. I would watch CS matches in TV instead of any other sport.
2014-08-30 16:29
Im right there with you man! Watching your favorite team pull off a clutch play... no other spectator sport gets the blood pumping like that!
2014-08-30 16:34
It does, but different people like different things :)
2014-08-30 16:59
No disagreement here mate!

2014-08-30 22:30
Felt weird that i got so really really happy over NiPs ESL-victory. Although, those emotions will never beat the feeling i got when Arjen Robben scored 2-1 vs DIRTmund or Götzes goal vs Argentina(i have to admit thou, i got more happy about Higuains offside-goal then Götzes goal). I know what you mean thou! :D
2014-08-30 17:53
+1 :))
2014-08-30 16:24
happy coz lost skins?
2014-08-30 17:19
I don't care about them only want to win smth to buy a nice game :) but I lost cuz of risking.
2014-08-30 17:56
Unbelievable performance by GuardiaN and Zeus, especially on de_dust2. Well played lads! Should be nice revenge vs. fnatic soon.
2014-08-30 16:20
NaVi pissed on HR on de_dust2, but HR threw inf :P
2014-08-30 16:20
Sure, they definitely threw ahahah

main question is - how many times hr need to fail to understand that it's not working for them. its like reverse nip regarding roster changes, lel p.s. this is all karma for destroying old vp and navi
2014-08-30 16:49
hope seized will get his good shape, bc today it was bad
2014-08-30 16:50
I like see that people saying that Na'Vi would win, but no one talk about Fnatic destroying MyXMG... I know, MyXMG is not the best team, but still, they played sick, and didnt trow anytime. But Na'Vi almost lost a big lead to HR on Inferno...
2014-08-30 16:52
Inferno isn't so good for Na`Vi while it's best map for HellRaisers.
2014-08-30 17:17
Wp lost like 40% of my inventory but who cares, nice match. I just wish HR would try more complex strategies and stop these weird forcebuyes.
