Na`Vi dismantle mouz in opener
Na´Vi kick off their ELEAGUE Major campaign by wrecking mousesports 16-3 on Cobblestone.
The CIS squad went up to a healthy 5-0 lead on CT side, though not without difficulties, as it required a last second defuse inside a molotov in the pistol round and then Ioann "Edward" Sukhariev clutching out a tense 1v1 against Denis "denis" Howell in the 3rd round to stabilize.
mousesports have had a history of despairing performances on Cobblestone and the coordination continued to be absent in the pushes on to bombsites and Natus Vincere stared down the European mixture like a rock, marching ahead with four more rounds before Nikola "NiKo" Kovač's soldiers scrambled together a take of the B-site in the end.
All smiles around as Na´Vi cruised to victory
The healthy bank for Ladislav "GuardiaN" Kovács and co. allowed them to pull out the double AWP's, which resulted in the reset, but somehow mousesports were able to squeeze out three AK's and sped up the pace to take another round and lower the deficit to 2-10, but no momentum was to be gained and Natus Vincere closed out a dominant CT half with 13-2.
Timo "Spiidi" Richter and the team had no room for error going on to their CT-side and they survived the initial scare, but the CIS squad timed their A-split from drop very well to catch the defenders off guard and throw the mouse's economy into disarray, duly closing out the map 16-3.
