Na`Vi advance to the grand finals after taking down dignitas 2-0 in the second DreamHack Open Leipzig semifinal (16-13 on de_cbble and 16-9 on de_train).

The second DreamHack Open Leipzig semifinal was a face-off between Na`Vi and dignitas, the latter team having won the Group B decider match against dignitas to make it into the semifinals.

The first map of de_cbble saw Markus "Kjaerbye" Kjærbye & co. do clean-up work on Na`Vi on their T-side, winning the pistolround and, even after losing the first gunround, continuing to rack up rounds to move the score to 5-1.


Edward's Na`Vi are making consecutive event finals

Na`Vi had a light defensive rally, led by Ioann "Edward" Sukhariev and Ladislav "GuardiaN" Kovács, but the first half was overall a story of dignitas' superior executions and site takes as the Danish-Norwegian team finished the first half up by 9-6.

Danylo "Zeus" Teslenko wanted to prove that Na`Vi could maneuver and execute on their T-side even more successfully, and he was the lynchpin himself of Na`Vi's efforts on de_cbble which slowly brought the Russian-Ukrainian-Slovak team into the lead and saw them clinch the first map 16-13.

de_train was mostly a story of Na`Vi's dominance on the first half, in addition to Kjaerbye pulling off an unbelieable Desert Eagle 4K on the tenth round, and saw Denis "seized" Kostin and teammates finish the half up 12-3.

Despite dignitas' attempts to defend on their own CT side, Na`Vi were the better team of the day and pulled off enough successful rounds to take the map 16-9 and the series 2-0, thereby making the grand finals.

 Natus Vincere K - D +/- ADR Rating 1.0
 Dignitas K - D +/- ADR Rating 1.0

Day three of the DreamHack ZOWIE Open in Leipzig will therefore be a grand final between two teams who are seemingly always meeting each other in the group stages of event, but now it will take place in a grand final setting: Luminosity and Na`Vi.

guardian won 3 important clutches on cobble when they were down 9-3 i think guardian carrying navi again, if guardian left navi... then navi = hellraisers
