Natus Vincere defeat UYA in Kiev
Natus Vincere closed out day one at SL i-League StarSeries Season 3 Finals with a 16-9 win against UYA on Inferno.
Ladislav "GuardiaN" Kovács's squad got off to a 3-0 start once they secured the pistol round as Terrorists, but then the Chinese underdogs showcased their skill, with Wei "shuadapai" Wang picking up a flashy quad-kill and HongGuang "Stevie" Li following up with three kills from pit in the next round.
GuardiaN reigned supreme on the T side
Nonetheless, not much else went the way of Lei "forget" Li and company, who had a few chances to get more rounds on the board but only finished with three in the half overall, after Natus Vincere turned the disadvantageous situations around, including clutches from Egor "flamie" Vasilyev and GuardiaN.
After the sides switched, Stevie turned up again with another triple, allowing UYA to climb to 6-12. Natus Vincere replied with one, but their economy was in shreds once the Chinese got the following round with an attack on the A bombsite.
PotM: With 16 AWP kills, eight opening kills and several multi-kills, including a 1v2 clutch in an eco, GuardiaN was the man of the hour for Na`Vi. He also contributed in 92% of rounds and had an overall score of 25-12 (1.65 rating, 113 ADR).
