Na`Vi and mousesports split points
Natus Vincere and mousesports traded maps (16-6 on Mirage for mousesports and 16-6 on Cobblestone for Na`Vi) in the last match of ELEAGUE's day one.
The final match of the day saw mousesports and Natus Vincere looking to finally get a win on the board after trading maps against FlipSid3 and Echo Fox, respectively, earlier on.
Mirage began with Denis "seized" Kostin winning a 1vs3 clutch in the pistol round as CT to put Na`Vi in the lead. mousesports hit back on a force buy, however, and went on a great run to bring the scoreline to an 8-1 advantage.
After calling a timeout, Na`Vi won two rounds in a row, courtesy of back-to-back triple kills from Ladislav "GuardiaN" Kovács. An ace from Timo "Spiidi" Richter then put mousesports on 10 rounds, with Na`Vi picking up the final two rounds to reduce the gap to five rounds.
Spiidi picked up two aces, one on each map
mousesports picked up where they left off and won the pistol round with a flawless retake and the following three rounds to get within touching distance of map point. Na`Vi still picked up a round, but the Germans regained control of the game and locked down the map, 16-6.

Cobblestone followed the same pattern as the first map, with Na`Vi getting the first round, courtesy of a quad kill from GuardiaN. After that, the CIS team put together a fantastic run of rounds as they never allowed mousesports to build on the few round wins that they edged out. An ace from Spiidi in the 15th round put mousesports on three rounds, but the Germans knew that they had a mountain to climb to turn the game around.
mousesports found a lifeline in the second half as they won the pistol round and both anti-ecos. After buying up, Na`Vi hit 13 rounds, and they just took it from there, winning the next three rounds to secure a convincing 16-6 win and rescue a point in Atlanta.
