Na`Vi over Titan to DH Summer final

Na`Vi move on to the DreamHack Open Summer grand final after defeating Titan 2-1 (11-16 on de_cbble, 16-11 on de_overpass, and 16-7 on de_inferno).

The second semi-final of the final day of DreamHack Open Summer featured two teams facing off who have had a lot to prove in 2015, Na`Vi and Titan. As our colleague Tomi "lurppis" Kovanen highlighted in his breakdown of the team's rivalry, the series promised to be incredibly close.

de_cbble was the first map and Titan's captain Kévin "Ex6TenZ" Droolans unleashed his team like a smoothly-oiled machine on their T-side, with precise executes and rotates giving the French-Belgian-Swiss mix a 12-3 lead at the half.

Na`Vi attempted to mount a comeback on their own T-side and began to slowly scoop up rounds, however Titan's star player Kenny "kennyS" Schrub shut down the map with his quintessential aggressive AWP maneuvers, giving Titan the first map with a 16-11 scoreline.

The second map of the series was de_overpass and Titan at first appeared to have inclinations of running away with the series, going up 8-0 on their CT-side. However, Danylo "Zeus" Teslenko brought out his own stratbook and helped Na`Vi garner six rounds in the end, closing out the half 9-6 in Titan's favour.

Titan lost a somewhat boneheaded T pistol round, with the bomb being lost unintentionally by Mathieu "Maniac" Quiquerez in Bank on A site, virtually guaranteeing Na`Vi the round. The Russo-Ukrainian-Slovak team used this momentum, along with great defense, to take the second map of the series with a 16-11 score.

The final map of the series was de_inferno and Na`Vi wasted no time retaining their second map momentum by winning the CT pistol.

Ladislav "GuardiaN" Kovács & co. kept up an early pressure, only to be matched later in the half by kennyS's AWPing, making the map a battle of each team's star AWPer more than anything else. Na`Vi finished their CT half up by a round, 8-7.

Na`Vi opted for aggressive T-side tactics and pulled away with the game, taking the pistol, subsequent pistol-conversion rounds, and first gun round of the second half. With the score at 13-7, Titan mustered a half-buy together in one of their final chances of the game to turn the momentum around. However, Na`Vi's take of A-site forced Titan to save.

Egor "flamie" Vasilyev continued to pick up slowly-worked entry kills to force Titan out of bombsites, eventually giving Na`Vi matchpoint. Na`Vi calmly took the final round, picking up eight rounds in a row on their T-side, and winning the map 16-7.

You are wrong, NaVi is one of the teams that put up a great fight with fnatic, I expect at least close 2-1 game and navi's chances are like 40/60
2015-06-15 20:52
I think it will be close, but 2-0 to fnatic. I bet on navi tho :p
