Na`Vi to DH Marseille semi-final over mousesports

Natus Vincere are the first known DreamHack Masters Marseille semi-finalist as they beat mousesports in the opening match of the playoffs 2-0 (16-9 Mirage, 19-16 Inferno).

Natus Vincere got a footing on mousesports' map pick early on, taking the first three rounds on the defensive side of the map before Denis "electronic" Sharipov's elegant 4K in the first gun round gave them their fourth. mousesports were able to get on the board thanks to Tomáš "oskar" Šťastný's force-bought AWP, but after a few rounds were traded, Natus Vincere once again came out on top with an 8-2 lead and an economic advantage.

Chris "chrisJ" de Jong's side was consistently trying to find openings towards B, but they were getting locked out as Natus Vincere adapted, while their approaches towards mid were stopped by Aleksandr "s1mple" Kostyliev who was having another classic game with the AWP. His team managed to reset mousesports once more before the end of the half, which was crucial in them cruising to a 12-3 lead.

The first few rounds of the second half were frenetic, Miikka "suNny" Kemppi almost pulled off a retake on the pistol single-handily, Robin "ropz" Kool stole away the followup with the Deagle 3K and then Natus Vincere struck back with their own force as electronic, Danylo "Zeus" Teslenko and s1mple found an entry each. The Ukrainian-based team ran up a 15-4 lead of the back off that, eventually closing the map out 16-9

Na`Vi were in the driving seat for the majority of the series

chrisJ's phenomenal USP-S quad-kill, all being headshots, started off Inferno and gave mousesports the lead. Natus Vincere contested it with a force buy, and after the first one came to the wire, doubled down with another one, which ended up going their way as they caught mousesports players out.

The force buys continued on after that, and in the end, mousesports ended up on top, with chrisJ's MP7 playing a crucial part. As the score was 5-3, oskar got a triple entry with the AWP, but s1mple would end up stealing away that round with an ace, assisted by Zeus in the 2v5. The European mixture still recovered to take an 8-5 lead, but Zeus and co. put on the pressure towards the end to make it an 8-7 half.

Once again, force buys marked the start of the half. Ioann "Edward" Sukhariev's Deagle rang true on B to get his team in control after losing the pistol, mousesports nearly replied but were stopped by s1mple who locked down A from graveyard (9-9).

ropz, who was having a great match overall, grabbed four kills in round 21 to get mousesports their first T-side rifle round, but Natus Vincere replies instantly, s1mple clutching a round on A, to reset their opponents' economy (12-10). Natus Vincere ran up to match point, with s1mple adding another ace to his name along the way. The game was all but done, but chrisJ stepped up in the crucial rounds, getting openings which mousesports converted and made it to overtime.

That was all she wrote, however, as Egor "flamie" Vasilyev and co. were the better team in the added rounds, going 3-0 on the CT side and then shortly closing it out as T to make it 19-16 on Inferno.
