Two teams with 1-1 records, Natus Vincere and NiP, squared off on Train in the third round of the New Legends Stage at the FACEIT Major. The CT-sided CIS team picked up the first three rounds but NiP secured the first weapon round thanks to Christopher "GeT_RiGhT" Alesund's crucial double kill.
Following another round loss, Natus Vincere got to four rounds with Egor "flamie" Vasilyev's triple kill which made it 4-2. Dennis "dennis" Edman clutched a 1vs1 against flamie to give NiP their third and NiP went on a four round streak to tie the game at 6-6. Natus Vincere got the last three rounds with a double AWP setup to lead 9-6 at halftime.
Danylo "Zeus" Teslenko & company extended their lead to 10-6 by grabbing the pistol round victory on the A-site. Natus Vincere once again hit the outer bomb site in the first weapon round and made it 13-6 with flamie's triple kill.
The CIS squad won the map 16-6 after Aleksandr "s1mple" Kostyliev stopped the defuse in a 1vs3 situation in the last round.
