ENCE ease past Na`Vi in BLAST Pro Series Madrid opener
ENCE opened up the game with a spotless pistol round on the defence in which all members of the Finnish squad survived the first engagement. Natus Vincere upset their opponents in the second round off the back a double kill from Aleksandr "s1mple" Kostyliev, but were unable to capitalise on the momentum shift, experiencing on-going struggle.
Utter domination ensued, as the CIS mix was consistently unable to find a chink in the Finns' armour, faltering from reset to reset. This dynamic, coupled with an astonishing showing from Aleksi "allu" Jalli and Jani "Aerial" Jussila, produced a 12-3 CT half for ENCE.
A triple kill from allu secured ENCE their second pistol round victory, this time on the offense. The Finnish squad proceeded to systematically close out rounds, all the way to map point. Natus Vincere managed to delay their defeat by a single round, thanks to a triple kill from Egor "flamie" Vasilyev, but subsequently fell with a disappointing 4-16 scoreline.
