Natus Vincere crush Sprout on Mirage

After a rough second day, Natus Vincere are back in business as they took their second win in Atlanta after defeating Sprout on Mirage, 16-3.

Natus Vincere started out Mirage on the right foot, winning the first pistol round and the first gun round, and taking a dominant early 5-0 lead. Sprout took an early lead thanks to Denis "denis" Howell getting a quick frag on Denis "electronic" Sharipov, but Natus Vincere were finally able to close it out as Danylo "Zeus" Teslenko got a quad-kill in the round to keep it one-sided.

Zeus’ men now have a 2-1 record at the Main Qualifier

With 10-0 on the board, Sprout took a timeout, and were finally able to put a round up of their own, although they were immediately reset as electronic and Zeus got doubles on top of a frag by Ioann "Edward" Sukhariev, to further increase their lead to 11-1. Sprout were finally able to take the two lost, going into the switch trailing 3-12.

The second half started with electronic winning a 1vs1 afterplant against Paweł "innocent" Mocek, which ended up being the last nail in the Sprout coffin as the Ukrainian-Russian side went on to close it out 16-3 as Aleksandr "s1mple" Kostyliev was able to win a 1vs3 in first and last gun round of the second half.

After these 3 games I'm very sceptical can Na'vi be even competitive against the top 5 teams, even when Na'vi is my favorite team. The only hope is that Zeus and Eddy can channel the inner competitor in them against the best teams. With these performances so far Na'vi wont go far.

I'm feeling a -edward if his current form keeps up. It's too bad cause he wasn't falling behind just last year.

They can go far if they practice more maps than inferno and after defeat with mouz mirage

2018-01-14 20:57
1) GuardiaN played like a garbage lately in Na`Vi for long period of time actually. He was lying and skipping most of their praccs/bootcamps. S1mple's fault? 2) Zeus was kicked cuz he was very bad and he wasn't IGL at that moment, Starix was Coach-IGL! But Valve created new rule so starix couldn't call, but Zeus was already kicked... How Na`Vi could predict that? And what s1mple did here? It was teams CEO and management decision to kick Zeus. S1mple's fault? 3) seized became trash since he started IGLing and he was a pArtYmaN and he is trash even now in Flipsid3. what s1mple has to do about it? 4) starix became useless in Na`Vi's management opinion since the Valve coaching rule (after -zeus +s1mple). What s1mple has to do about it?
