Natus Vincere win against Space Soldiers on Train

Natus Vincere beat Space Soldiers on Train, 16-9, and go 2-1 in Cologne.

Natus Vincere started out on the CT side, winning the pistol round and the anti-ecos, but Space Soldiers made it very expensive for the CIS side killing three and planting twice on the B site of Train. The Turkish side then kept abusing that interior site, planting the bomb and getting the upper hand on the retakes twice in a row before eco-bashing Natus Vincere to tie the match 3-3.

GuardiaN put on a vintage performance against Space Soldiers

From there on out, Natus Vincere started to build up their economy, winning several rounds in a row up to an 8-3 lead, when Space Soldiers took a tactical timeout. The talk didn´t seem to help the Turkish team, though, as Natus Vincere, with a particularly inspired Ladislav "GuardiaN" Kovács, closed the half out 12-3.

Space Soldiers were able to take the second pistol round thanks to a misplay by Natus Vincere, but it only took one eco round before the CIS side got back on track, winning the first gun round and following it up all the way to match point. Space Soldiers then kept the dream alive, with Ahmet "paz" Karahoca and Engin "MAJ3R" Küpeli getting two triples in a row to keep the match going. With them momentum on their side, the Turkish side brought it back to 15-9, but Natus Vincere were finally able to close it out after getting an early man advantage and exploiting Space Soldiers’ defense in the last round of the match.

SS fucked up by removing Nuke instead of Train. This could have gone to Mirage where SS would have a better chance. Really bad veto by SS

sure maj3r is the biggest idiot. Always talking how good SS is and that they should be invited to "every" event. They never did anything so far. You have to earn it first like VP maybe but even now people are beginning to doubt them. But SS seriously they have a cool logo and name but the Rest is avarage at best and nothing for big Lan events.
