Na`Vi edge ?; to semi-finals

Na`Vi have just defeated Question Mark 2-1 (de_dust2 16-4, de_overpass 11-16, de_mirage 16-13) to meet EnVyUs in tomorrow's semi-finals of SL i-League StarSeries XIV Finals.

Natus Vincere's and Question Mark's veto process chucked out a trio of great maps for both sides, starting with de_dust2 (Na`Vi's pick), followed up by de_overpass and de_mirage as the decider.

The first six rounds ended up going out evenly to the teams, after Na`Vi won the first three rounds as Terrorists, and QM followed it up with three of their own, with a few ecos and forcebuys thrown in.

Egor "flamie" Vasilyev then delievered five kills in the next two gunrounds to help his team get up to a 6-3 lead, before Ioann "Edward" Sukhariev stepped forward with a triple from behind. Peter "dupreeh" Rasmussen finally stopped the streak in a 1-on-2 clutch, although it wasn't enough to stop the force that was Na`Vi.

When Edward got another triple in the second pistol round after an 11-4 halftime score, there was not much the Danes could have done to avoid a stunning defeat, which came at 16-4.


Edward was on fire today

Switching over to de_overpass, Question Mark's map of choice, who also started on the Counter-Terrorist side and got a good 4-0 lead thanks to great informational plays in the pistol, as well as first gunround.

Edward kicked off the show for Na`Vi with a very close 1-on-4 attempt, and a triple for their first round on the board. The teams then went back and forth for a few rounds, before Na`Vi took three in a row for a 6-6 tie.

QM snatched of the remaining three rounds, as well as the second pistol round and both anti-ecos afterwards, for a 11-7 lead. Natus Vincere held on in the gunrounds though, especially thanks to Denis "seized" Kostin and Ladislav "GuardiaN" Kovács both picking up four kills in the next two rounds, as they climbed back to a one-round deficit again.

Their agression got punished afterwards though, as the team got picked apart all over the map, and dupreeh's quad-kill on the A bombsite nearly sealed the deal at 14-10. Danylo "Zeus" Teslenko delayed them for a round with a CZ-75 triple in a forcebuy, but that didn't stop the Danes to even the series at 16-11.


At their last event as Question Mark the Danes make their exit in 5th-6th place

At the beginning of de_mirage, Na`Vi threw away a 5-on-3 lead in the pistol round on the B bombsite, which ended up costing them quite a lot more than expected. Question Mark continued to stand strong, even against a couple of scary ecos and quasi-buys, and make it a 7-0 lead.

Na`Vi did find a way past the defence eventually, although it was only for a couple of rounds in a row, as Nicolai "device" Reedtz's saved AK shut them down again for 9-2. The remaining four rounds were split evenly between the sides, as Finn "karrigan" Andersen was unable to complete a close 1-on-3.

A much-needed pistol round went Na`Vi's way thanks to doubles from GuardiaN and seized, and they didn't let go of the first gunround either, making it 11-10. Andreas "Xyp9x" Højsleth then came out on top of a 1-on-2 by the skin of his teeth, but failed to turn two more clutches around, and the game was even for the first time at 12-12.

Three more rounds afterwards, things turned grey for the Danish side, who didn't manage to come back from three match points, as Na`Vi advanced to the semi-finals at 16-13, 2-1.

2016-01-15 22:32
change the title to TQM still don't understand how to play T side Mirage. Pushing B with 20 seconds left 5 Buy rounds in a row doesn't work
2016-01-15 22:32
they literally got 12 rounds on t side of de_mirage against the best team in the world.And now they can't get even 3. Sad to watch.
2016-01-15 22:35
because they don't push connector into A, they only take A from ramp. and then they have to fall off of A post plant because they don't hold stairs area. so they stop going A and start going B but they never take cat first. every take was from just 1 entrance....

I'm obsessed with CS but this tournament was completely unacceptable. Not following schedules, like, at all. People sitting watching a blank screen for hours with their dick in their hand. If we want CS to be a legit esport then the admin and schedulers need to do their fucking job. Good games though
