Na`Vi vs. VP in Azubu.tv showmatch

Azubu.tv will run a best-of-five showmatch for $15,000 between Natus Vincere and Virtus.pro on October 16th.

Following a spate of offline tournaments in the preceding weeks, the CS:GO scene will now cool off slightly in anticipation of the upcoming major at DreamHack Open Cluj-Napoca in two weeks time.

There will still be time for online tournament fireworks however, as Azubu.tv have announced a new best-of-five showmatch that will run on October 16th.

This showmatch will pair two titans from beyond the former Iron Curtain up against each other: the Polish Virtus.pro and the Ukrainian-Russian-Slovak composition that is Natus Vincere.

Virtus.pro in particular are no strangers to best-of-five showmatch brawls, as Filip "NEO" Kubski's men played one in June against the Frenchmen of EnVyUs (which nV won 3-0).

The prize-pool distribution for the best-of-five match will be:

1. - $10,000
2. - $5,000 

The showmatch wil be streamed over Azubu's main channel here.

be it azubu, mlg.tv or hitbox, somebody needs to step up and stop twitch from having the monopoly on gaming streaming. Think about it guys, what is better for gaming, only one strong platform or a lot of them so they can compete constantly and keep improving things?
2015-10-13 09:28
i agree, we need competition for twitch..

I don't mind competition at all but I need app on my phone, tablet and app on Xbox One or Playstation 4. I'm not going to be tied to my PC. This is not how you watch sports.
2015-10-13 11:22
If that's the problem, what's holding you back to stream from your PC to your TV?
2015-10-13 12:08
Possibly a certain cable

Nothing. I do it but it's not comfortable. On Twitch on Xbox One I can do stuff like mute sound, or increase volume only with my voice via Kinect. To do anything regarding stream from PC I need to get to my laptop, unlock it and then use painful mouse / trackpad controls. It doesn't prevent me from watching on TV but it is far from ideal experience. That's it.
2015-10-13 21:50
That's a good point. I just use wireless devices, so it's not as awful for me but I can see how Kinect works better.
2015-10-14 01:54
only hitbox is a challange, mlg and azubu are shit
2015-10-13 15:41
The performance you get from each site is very personal. I get a good stream from MLG and horrible fps and a bad stream when watching azubu or hitbox.

It's not twitch's fault people are using it lol... Maybe it's because twitch is better?
2015-10-13 17:35
There's also YouTube, they have apps for all platforms but they're not sponsoring tournaments so only Gfinity has used them.

It would be better if they did $3k per map then you're guaranteed all 5 maps
2015-10-13 09:47
+1, they should start doing this more often when its a "showmatch" and its sole purpose is to advertise something.
