Defining Moments: Natus Vincere vs. FaZe

In another edition of Defining Moments, Aleksandr "s1mple" Kostyliev walked us through the first CT buy round against FaZe—which he finished off with a 1v1 clutch, enabling Natus Vincere's comeback.

The match between FaZe and Natus Vincere took place on Overpass, and it was a high-stakes one, as both teams were already 0-1 down, with a possibility to draw a tough opponent in the elimination round if they lose.

FaZe started off strongly, and seemed like they were going to cruise to the victory after winning the CT pistol and going up 11-5. However, they lost to Natus Vincere's force-buy, and then the defining moment of the match happened, a successful B site retake. s1mple was the main man, landing a quick-scope on Nikola "NiKo" Kovač before handling Finn "karrigan" Andersen in the 1v1—getting off the defuse in the last second and hitting the shot to secure the round.
