Na`Vi to ELEAGUE final over Echo Fox

Natus Vincere have booked their spot in ELEAGUE's Group E final after seeing off Echo Fox 2-0 (16-9 on Nuke and 16-4 on Overpass).

The series began on Nuke, where Na`Vi were successful in their pistol strategy as CT and even denied Echo Fox the bomb plant. With little money in the bank, the North Americans pulled back on a force buy thanks to two entry frags from Daniel "⁠roca⁠" Gustaferri, and followed it up with another round.

After getting their economy stabilised, Na`Vi went on a five-round winning streak to bring the scoreline to a 6-2 advantage. Shahzeb "⁠ShahZaM⁠" Khan then put Echo Fox back in the game with two key frags with the AWP, with Ronnie "⁠ryx⁠" Bylicki raising eyebrows right after as he won a 1vs2 clutch to deny a quad kill by Ioann "⁠Edward⁠" Sukhariev from resulting in a round win.

Echo Fox would go on to reduce the deficit to a minimum, but then Na`Vi picked themselves up and put together a run of rounds to finish the half with a 10-5 lead.


Edward & co were too hot for Echo Fox to handle 

In the second half, Na`Vi won the pistol round to further enlarge their lead, only to be caught off-guard by Echo Fox's eco. But once the CIS team got money in the bank again it was pretty straight forward as they gave up just one more round before locking down the map 16-9.

The map that followed was Overpass, where Na`Vi stormed to an 8-2 lead on the CT side as they gave Echo Fox little room to operate and instantly punished their opponents every time that a round went their way. After calling a tactical pause, the North Americans were able to string two rounds together following triple kills from ryx and roca, but they still found themselves trailing by seven rounds come the end of the half.

The second half was anti-climatic as Na`Vi won five rounds with no response to seal a 16-4 victory and book their spot in Friday's final, in which they will face the winner of the match between mousesports and FlipSid3 Tactics.

if SeanGares couldnt fix cloud 9 he cant fix echo fox. Echo Fox just feels like a less skilled version of C9 to me.

What do you mean by fix, there's only so far these players and the cloud9 players could go Sean igl'd the col. lineup to semis at DHW, quarters at katowice the c9 lineup to quarters at cologne Also the latter c9 lineup beating teams multiple times like prime envyus and fnatic He can get these guys to about rank 13th-11th in world, just give it a few months

Ignore him man. You're talking to an idiot who just told you that "no NA team can beat an EU team" when you just listed out more than 3 examples. Then as a snarky comeback, he said your examples aren't valid because they are two years old. But if I recall, his original statement was "no NA team can beat an EU team." I don't understand.

Hope so! He deserved it! He stepped up his game since IEM SAN JOSE 2015 and he reached his Peek! I mean he was the second best Player in the Major, after Cold! He would win the MVP award if NaVi would have beaten LG!

He is just a pug star with flashy plays, aim and movement, he just needs more LAN practice.

Nevertheless, echo looked better than most na teams. Hope to see them more often
