Na`Vi beat Virtus.pro to win CS:GO Asia Championships
The title decider kicked off on Dust2, Virtus.pro's map pick. The Poles started it off on the right foot, winning their T-side pistol and the subsequent anti-eco, but they could not follow that up in the third round due to double-kills from Egor "flamie" Vasilyev and Ioann "Edward" Sukhariev.
Still, Virtus.pro remained in control, stringing five rounds together before Natus Vincere were finally able to win their second of the game. But the Ukrainian side simply could not stop the Polish team, who even saw Paweł "byali" Bieliński and Filip "NEO" Kubski turn a 2v5 situation around.
Nuke, Natus Vincere's map pick, began with Danylo "Zeus" Teslenko's men cruising to a 5-0 lead after the 30-year-old had clutched a 1v3 situation to win the pistol for his team. Virtus.pro then hit their first round on the board thanks to a quad-kill from byali that included a 1v2 clutch, which they followed up with another round on the back of a triple-kill from Jarosław "pashaBiceps" Jarząbkowski.
However, Natus Vincere refused to let go off the gas and lost just one more round during the rest of the half to bag a convincing 12-3 lead. On the CT side, the Ukrainian team quickly wrapped things up to equalise the series at 1-1.
NEO opened up the action on the decider map, Train, with a clean quad-kill to pick up the CT pistol for his team. But after building up their economy, Natus Vincere ran all over the defence, with Zeus piling more misery on the Polish players with a 1v3 clutch in the 15th round.
Down 2-13, Virtus.pro still found a lifeline by winning the second pistol and the following anti-eco, but then Zeus clutched a 1v2 with a CZ, powering Natus Vincere to secure another convincing victory.
