fnatic eliminate Na`Vi from Krakow
fnatic live to fight another round at PGL Major Krakow after defeating Natus Vincere 16-12 on Mirage.
Aleksandr "s1mple" Kostyliev opened up the match with a triple-kill to help his team secure the Counter-Terrorist pistol round. When it came to the gun round, fnatic got a hold of the map with a successful B execution, but they could not follow it up, with Natus Vincere cruising to a 7-1 lead.
Then, in a semi-buy, Robin "flusha" Rönnquist got his team back in the game with an impressive 1v3 clutch. That round ended up swinging the tide in fnatic's favour as the Swedish team reduced the deficit to 9-6.
As for the second half, the pistol round went the the way of fnatic in convincing fashion. Thanks to a triple-kill from Egor "flamie" Vasilyev with a Desert Eagle, however, Natus Vincere did not let the Swedes string any rounds together. Still, both flusha and Freddy "KRIMZ" Johansson clutched 1v2 situations in the following two rounds to bring the deficit to a minimum.
Na`Vi were still able to win two more rounds, but their inability to build on them proved costly and allowed fnatic to take control of the game. The Swedish team eventually closed out the map, 16-12, which means that, for the first time since ESL Major Series One Katowice 2014, Na`Vi will not be in the playoffs of a Valve-sponsored event.
