Na`Vi schedule a clash with Titan

Natus Vincere have scheduled a clash with Titan in the consolidation final of SLTV StarSeries XI after defeating Epsilon 2-0 (16-10 on de_inferno, 16-12 on de_overpass).

The two teams that were sent to the lower bracket yesterday, Natus Vincere and Epsilon after convincing losses to LDLC and Titan, met in the lower bracket final today to decide who will end in 4th place and who will stay in the tournament.

The only squad with local support, Na`Vi, ended up playing the same maps as against LDLC, only in different order. They started as Terrorists on de_inferno and picked Epsilon apart with ease early on with their methodical play.

It was 10-1 and Denis "seized" Kostin was in much better form than yesterday, topping the scoreboard with 16 kills, when an internet problem at the stage occured and delayed the match by around 10 minutes.


seized looking to be in much better form today 

After continuing, Epsilon strung together two rounds, but still lost the half 12-3. Similarly to yesterday, they didn't give up and after winning the pistol round they put some more work in for 12-8.

It was then that Na`Vi broke them with a 2-on-2 by Sergey "starix" Ischuk and seized that led to seven match points a few rounds later at 15-8. Only three were needed and the Ukrainians ran out with a 16-10 win.

They once again started on the T side on map two, de_overpass, and it proved as troubling at the beginning like it was yesterday against LDLC. After an early tie at 3-3, Na`Vi lost an anti-eco round and from then on it was hard for them to make a breakthrough for the rest of the half.


GuardiaN had 28:16 with two important clutch round wins on map two

They only managed to win one more round, with Epsilon taking the half 11-4 and Robin "GMX" Stahmer and Christophe "SIXER" Xia sitting on 16:6 and 15:6 scores, respectively. 

But the tables turned when the sides changed, especially thanks to Ladislav "GuardiaN" Kovács who won a 1-on-2 situation in the pistol round and propelled Na`Vi on their own CT side streak.

Epsilon didn't give up even after the score reached 11-11, as Adil "ScreaM" Benrlitom scored 3 opening AK-47 kills to keep them from going down. However, that was the last of their efforts as GuardiaN had another important clutch, 1-on-1 for 13-12 that sealed the Frenchmen's fate.

Three rounds later the scoreboard spelled 16-12 and Natus Vincere had won 2-0 and advanced to the consolidation final.

Every match is 2-0, pretty boring man I hope the final uses all 4 maps and doesn't end 3-0 to LDLC.

I like Na'Vi ever since 1.6. In CS:GO, in the T side inferno, they always wait for the CT to make the first move.. (I used Google Translate)
