MIBR beat Na`Vi in BLAST Pro Series Moscow opener
The Russian side got off to a dominant start to the game by taking the pistol round without losing a single player, and following it up with the next two rounds for a 3-0 lead. The double AWP setup of Gabriel "FalleN" Toledo and kNgV- has been a hot topic since the former INTZ player was recruited, but it was Fernando "fer" Alvarenga who excelled with the 'Big Green' in the first gun round as he secured four kills to put MIBR on the board.
And that was when the MIBR show began. Apart from a round secured by Aleksandr "s1mple" Kostyliev with a trio of kills, the Brazilians were in cruise control for the remainder of the half as they stormed to an 11-4 lead, with fer and FalleN contributing a combined 41 frags throughout their CT side.
Natus Vincere came out of the break with renewed vigor and began to chip away at MIBR's lead with s1mple leading the charge. Any round won by the Brazilians was immediately countered by Na`Vi, who eventually brought the deficit to just two rounds. It looked like the home side would go all the way and complete a sensational comeback before MIBR picked up the pace and locke down the map in the 28th round after going on a solid run.
