Na`Vi, fnatic round out FACEIT semis
Natus Vincere and fnatic have secured the last two places in the FACEIT League 2015 semi-finals after seeing off Team Kinguin and Ninjas in Pyjamas, respectively.
After beating Virtus.pro in a three-map thriller, Kinguin were looking to carry on their momentum and defeat the ESWC champions to book a place in the semi-finals of the Spanish tournament.
Once again, Mikail "Maikelele" Bill's side showed some great fighting spirit as they were able to level the series after losing the opening map.
Na`Vi had to go to a third map against Kinguin
However, this time around Kinguin struggled to get their game together on the final map, which allowed Na`Vi to run out 2-1 victors, thanks in no small part to a fantastic performance from Denis "seized" Kostin.

The other group Lower Bracket final was an all-Swedish classic between NiP and fnatic. Such games always go down to the wire, and this one certainly disappointed no one.
de_train was Olof "olofmeister" Kajbjer's playground, as the renowned pistoleer turned up the heat to power his team to a 16-14 victory thanks to an amazing 1.86 rating. On de_mirage, it was Aleksi "allu" Jalli's time to shine, but the Finnish talent could not prevent NiP from faltering once more in the final round, just as they were about to take the game to overtime.
