Natus Vincere have secured a 16-6 victory on Train against NiP to improve their record to 2-1 at the FACEIT Major New Legends Stage.

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.

flamie put up big numbers against NiP

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.

i think they scary bcs navi playing mirage not bad. and on train they lost to north like 16-3 :) but idk better to play your best map.
2018-09-14 18:17
Na'Vi is extremely strong on Mirage, but have shown weakness on Train at the inner site particularly.

AHHA what? NIP won 3 luckyes rounds
2018-09-14 18:17
Not unlucky about the match, unlucky about the teams they are facing. Liquid, mouz, navi. They didn't face a weak team yet.
2018-09-14 19:22
NaVi looks poised to get one of the first three places. They played solid structured CS and looked sharp and composed. Well done.

Navi hate 2nd place because they were 2nd twice
2018-09-14 18:28
Let's be honest: Astralis and Liquid are just way above all other teams. CS still can be largely affected by luck (think Ts vs CTs when the latter constantly lose rounds and cannot really rebuy, and all their gear is a lot more expensive, M4 vs AK47, incendiary vs. molotov) and NaVi might take the first place.

2018-09-14 18:16
How does hltv count the clutch statistics? S1mple won 3 vs faze, and at least the last round vs NiP, but has only 2 shown on his stats?

NiP 1-2 Fnatic 2-1 Even tho Fnatic is utter trash and NiP has been playing good, at the end draws will destroy NiP, but not Fnatic because of luck.

True and incredibly sad

Flamie and S1mple and Electronic THE BEST TRIO IN THE WORLD!!!

2018-09-14 19:31
-1 bro Na`Vi just need more confidence, imo they are stronger and they proved it many times by beating Astralis. Potentially they are even better in my opinion.
2018-09-14 19:38
NaVi Just needs edward playing decent cs.. Everytime edward playing better, a Win Just like an ez task for NaVi
