Na`Vi win IEM San Jose
Natus Vincere are your IEM San Jose champions after defeating TSM 2-0 in the grand final (16-10 on de_dust2 and 16-8 on de_cbble).
The grand final of IEM San Jose brought two of the most favoured teams together in a European clash on North American shores: Na`Vi and TSM.
With TSM recently revealed to be facing organisational issues, the Danes were seen as needing a strong result to recover from a insecure showing at DreamHack Open Cluj and all the overarching rumours.
Na`Vi's return to North America sees them win an event
However, the grand final was ultimately a playground for Ladislav "GuardiaN" Kovács and his teammates as Na`Vi took TSM's map pick of de_dust2 from the Danes at 16-10.
TSM, who are known for often vetoing de_cbble, were crushed by a solid Na`Vi defense on de_cbble, going down 1-14 at the half. Despite a small whimper of an attempt to come back into the game, TSM crumbled and Na`Vi powered ahead to win the map 16-8 and the event itself.
