ENCE hold Natus Vincere to a tie

To close out the first day at BLAST Pro Series Moscow, ENCE and Natus Vincere tied on Train as each team clinch their first point in the round-robin group stage.

Natus Vincere kicked off the match by converting the pistol round into a 4-0 lead on the Counter-Terrorist side, as ENCE struggled to keep up with their opponents with a single kill each round at best.

The Finns then got on the board with four out of the next five to bring the deficit down to just one round thanks to a few successful A hits, but a halfbuy win swung the half back into Na`Vi's favor. A 2v3 retake on B, Denis "⁠electronic⁠" Sharipov's save of a 1v4 clutch attempt from Aleksi "⁠allu⁠" Jalli, and another partial buy triumph later, Natus Vincere set themselves up for a 10-5 half.

ENCE hold Na`Vi to a tie despite early struggles

Upon switching sides, ENCE took control early on in the second half, with their convincing defense equalizing the scoreline at 10-10. Natus Vincere broke through after struggling in the opening five rounds on the back of openings from electronic, retaking their lead to get within inches of victory at 14-11.

A crucial double and a 1v1 clutch from Sami "⁠xseveN⁠" Laasanen kept the Finnish side in the game as they clawed back to 14-14, at which point the two sides exchanged the last two rounds to get away with one point apiece.

Navi was playing really really bad. Ence has so much work to do to be able to compete even against the top50 teams currently. I didn't see any amazing teamwork from ence this time.

I mean its been 3 days, it would be hard to expect anything good from them, especially considering how badly they got crushed by RNG at the major.

You clearly have some basic logic problem. Rating is compared to performances of those other 9 players.
