s1mple's dominant performance sees Na`Vi advance to the Major

Natus Vincere made it to the group stage of the ELEAGUE Boston 2018 Major after dismantling Liquid on Inferno (16-5)

Denis "⁠electronic⁠" Sharipov and Egor "⁠flamie⁠" Vasilyev shut down a pretty simple A attack from Liquid in the pistol round on Inferno, setting the tone for the game right from the start. The Ukrainian side went 3-0 up before losing the first buy, only to break Liquid's bank in the next one. The star of his team, Aleksandr "⁠s1mple⁠" Kostyliev, was bullying Liquid with the AWP, picking up a total of 19 kills in the first nine rounds (8-1).

Liquid wasn't able to even put down the bomb in the rounds they lost, finally breaking into the B bombsite in round 14, with Nick "⁠nitr0⁠" Cannella, Russel "⁠Twistzz⁠" Van Dulken and Jonathan "⁠EliGE⁠" Jablonowski all picking up kills. However, all of the members of the North American side simply weren't gettign kills in the first half, which ended 13-2 in favor of Natus Vincere.

s1mple had no issues decimating his former teammates

Wilton "⁠zews⁠" Prado stepped up with two USP-S entires on the CT pistol, locking down the A site with Twistzz, and with some scary anti-ecos closed out, Liquid added a couple of rounds to the board. It semed like Liquid would finally establish themselves on the map when Natus Vincere stole a round with just a couple of Deagles, with s1mple's double-entry once again instigating the action.

The 20-year-old finished the game with 30 kills, picking up the last one as the game was closed out 16-6.

s1mple and zeus the power duo apparently this roster really needed to qualify or it would have been an embarrassment If liquid doesn't go through, ill feel bad for nitr0 because he has been putting up great performances all tournament long up until now
