Natus Vincere came out victorious from their SLTV StarSeries XIII Finals grand final against EnVyUs 3-1 (16-14 de_cbble, 10-16 de_dust2, 16-4 de_overpass, 25-23 de_inferno).

The best-of-five grand final's first map was to be Na`Vi's first pick de_cbble, and it was Natus Vincere starting off well with three rounds in a row despite EnVyUs trying to forcebuy.

Soon after EnVyUs made it 6-4 in their favor with five in a row, as well as Vincent "Happy" Schopenhauer clutching a one-on-three, thanks to which the Frenchmen took three more with another one-on-one clutch by Happy.

The half ended at 9-6 in EnVy's favor, combined with a second pistol-round win, as Edouard "SmithZz" Dubourdeaux took down four by himself. Ladislav "GuardiaN" Kovács and Egor "flamie" Vasilyev then combined for a two-on-three in the following forcebuy, setting off a three-round streak before EnVyUs broke it again thanks to ninja-like positioning by Happy who killed the planter only seconds before the timer ran out.

EnVyUs still had a very weak buy though, which again helped Na`Vi win three for three in return on the other side, making it 14n-13 in nV's favor. With GuardiaN at the top of the scoreboard, Natus Vincere took all three remaining to win map one at 16-14.


GuardiaN had a 34-17 score in a 30-round de_cbble

EnVyUs indeed took revenge in the first half of de_dust2, as they got up to 5-0 before Natus Vincere responded with a single one solely thanks to GuardiaN's fast reaction towards Nathan "NBK-" Schmitt at the back of plateau. The only other round the CIS-based squad got in the first half was due to another three-kill action by the Slovakian AWPer, making it 13-2.

It seemed like the second pistol round win was the last nail hammered in Na`Vi's coffin on map two, but with a forcebuy victory, Danylo "Zeus" Teslenko and company started mounting a comeback. Eventually though EnVyUs picked two off at B to make it to seven map points. Soon after, with a desperate quad-AWP buy from Na`Vi thrown in, nV closed it out at 16-10, equalizing the series 1-1.

de_overpass was set to be map three, once again a pick of the home team, who also got off to a flying start with both the Terrorist pistol round and the first gunround, in which Zeus killed all opponents in a four-on-four afterplant situation.

Natus Vincere kept breaking EnVyUs' economy, especially after Richard "shox" Papillon won a one-on-three, and got all the way up to 11-1 before the DreamHack Winter 2014 champions started to risk, stacking bombsites for all three remaining rounds in the half.

Ioann "Edward" Sukhariev's solo quad-kill on long practically broke all possibilities of a comeback, and that was soon confirmed after both anti-ecos, as well as a solid defence on the B bombsite by GuardiaN and Denis "seized" Kostin.


Impeccable Terrorist play on Overpass gave Na`Vi a 2-1 lead in the BO5 series

On de_inferno, EnVyUs were seemingly determined to repeat the previous map's scoreline from their point of view, as they stormed onto a 9-0 streak following solid defences on the A bombsite, as well as Natus Vincere's multiple spread-out rounds, where everyone died one by one.

Finally the home side calmed down and went back to their slow default play, ending up on the B bombsite with a set strategy, getting them a double entry into the B bombsite from seized.

Na`Vi sped things up afterwards and took another with a quick A push, combined with another two in the two rounds afterwards, making it 9-4. Yet another one from apartments didn't work out that time around, as NBK- and shox combined for five in pit before the half ended at 10-5.

What followed was a crazy string of forcebuys three times in a row going back and forth after Na`Vi snatched the pistol round, eventually making it 12-8 when shox stepped up with a very unlikely one-on-three only at three health-points in the one-on-one at the end.


shox confirmed his position as the Na`Vi-killer

Natus Vincere then read EnVyUs' rotation perfectly, helping them get back and even it out at 13-13 after two split rounds between the two teams. EnVyUs then realized a weakness in the defences and with some more entries from NBK-, his team was standing at two map points. A miraculous triple from seized in a split second down middle and GuardiaN's double on long took the game to overtime.

EnVyUs started off with a 2-1 lead on the Terrorist side thanks to Happy's one-on-three, but a couple of set strategies towards the B bombsite got Natus Vincere two as well for another overtime mr3 set.

Two first rounds were split between the teams, but as per usual with Zeus's team, the timer came back to haunt them despite Edward's flanking heroics in the last ten seconds.

Once again 2-1 on both sides took it to overtime number three before Na`Vi finally broke the curse and got all three rounds on the Counter-Terrorist side. Despite not being able to break nV's defences on A, Natus Vincere could celebrate thanks to a three-on-four hold on the B bombsite on low health points for 25-23, 3-1.

Nowadays all events have this much or more viewership... DH Sumer had 150k viewers or something.
2015-06-21 22:16
330k watching CS on Twitch during this final, something I haven't seen since a major. Might be a few viewers for community channels as well but yeah.

2015-06-21 22:16
3-1 pure luck
2015-06-21 22:18
16-14,25-23,3-1 doesnt do the match justice
2015-06-21 22:19
exactly, one round with less luck for navi and envyus would have taken it
2015-06-21 22:20
it must be 3-0,not 3-1.
2015-06-21 22:21
Envy had equal luck to Na'vi. Na'vi was simply the better team tonight.
2015-06-21 22:24
NV made their best performance in MONTHS and got to play two close maps out of the four and failed to close out both of them. Na'vi obviously played better this time around.
2015-06-21 22:28
Navi didn't have more luck than envy
2015-06-22 00:14
3-1 doesn't do it justice? Na'vi won 3 maps NV 1, justice served.
2015-06-21 22:25
jesus you didnt even understand the statement. Forget it. Last year Navi only won SLTV,done for this year too.
2015-06-21 22:36
jesus learn to accept stop whining like a little bitch for now its NaVi > Envy deal with it
2015-06-21 22:50
EASY NAV0
2015-06-21 22:54
You don't understand this game. I understood what you meant but I don't agree with it. 3-1 is very representative of the final. NV were close to winning two time but failed to secure both maps and choked up. They fucking lost you salty fan boy. You are talking about doing things justice at the same time you are talking about Na'vis performance last year with old line-up and making up numbers that are not even true. How about we try to keep the talk recent and relevant? Let's talk NV performance they won fucking shitty American "X-games" tourney in January and has been exiting tournies in the groupstages ever since, this is SLTV play-offs is their first good performance since January.

I wonder how do you have balls to accuse somebody of using false numbers/informations and then do the same fucking thing in the same comment. Hypocrisy at it's best. "NV performance they won fucking shitty American "X-games" tourney in January and has been exiting tournies in the groupstages ever since, this is SLTV play-offs is their first good performance since January." What? Envy won 3 lans after MLG X-Games Aspen, both Gfinity lans + first SLTV StarSeries. Has been exiting tournies in groupstages? What kind of fucking drugs have you been usin'?
2015-06-22 00:10

Cool beans :) And congratulations on such a successful event. Good production, excellent venue and from a viewers' point it looked like a rock solid organization of the whole event. Kudos to all you SLTV-guys/girls and until the next Starseries finals!

nice finals ps threat is a horrible caster, people gotta stop giving him gigs just because he was a "famous" player
2015-06-22 00:43
hes just analyst
2015-06-22 10:10
so weird when they use their real names instead of their gametags. you have to think for once to get the context when you arent familiar with their names. great series and well deserved.
