Vitality see off Na`Vi in DreamHack Masters Malmö semi-finals

Vitality came from behind to beat Natus Vincere 2-1 and punch their ticket to the grand final of DreamHack Masters Malmö 2019.

For a while, it looked like Na`Vi had thrown their name into the hat and joined the race for the title of best team of the tournament season. They had demolished Vitality on Nuke - historically one of their worst maps - and everything seemed to be clicking for them. But how wrong that assumption turned out to be. The French team responded in kind on Overpass and recovered from a poor start on Dust2 to take the map in convincing fashion and set up a final against home side fnatic.

It was not the s1mple-ZywOo showdown that many had hoped for, mainly because the Ukrainian barely had any impact on the two maps that his team lost, especially Dust2, where he never left the bottom of the scoreboard. The Frenchman, on the other hand, was a huge driving force for Vitality throughout the series, with the AWP and rifles, as he pushed the team to their first final appearance with the new roster on a day where the two sides coming out of the quarter-finals reigned supreme.

Nuke began at a fast and furious pace, with rounds going back and forth during the early stages as neither side was able to get a grip on the game. It would not last, though, as once Natus Vincere took control of proceedings, they immediately shut out the helpless Frenchmen, who were limited to just three rounds on the offense.

Things then went from bad to worse for Vitality, who were caught out in the second half pistol, but they replied in the following round to get a bit of a breather. The French side managed to get to six rounds before Na`Vi ran away with the game.

ZywOo led Vitality to a convincing win over Na`Vi

Overpass showed a different side to both teams. Na`Vi looked like they had lost steam as they struggled to break through a watertight Vitality defense, getting their first round victory when they were already down 0-7. There was no follow-up as Dan "apEX" Madesclaire denied the Russian side with a triple-kill spraydown on Monster, with the Frenchmen proceeding to win the remaining rounds of the half to secure a massive 14-1 lead.

Natus Vincere refused to throw in the towel and battled back after switching to the CT side, even winning the first full gun round following a trio of kills from Egor "flamie" Vasilyev. But their resistance would not last as they were caught off-guard by a Vitality side with nothing but pistols before Richard "shox" Papillon laid the game to rest with a clutch, his seventh of the tournament.

The Russian team were in control during the early stages of the game as they jumped out to a 5-0 lead on the CT side, but they immediately felt the game slip away from them after losing an anti-eco and called a tactical pause. From that point onwards it was a one-way street as Vitality picked apart Na`Vi's defense with a series of multi-kill rounds from Mathieu "ZywOo" Herbaut, who ended the half with 16 kills, nine more than Aleksandr "s1mple" Kostyliev.

Vitality carried that late momentum into the second half as they won the pistol round and an anti-eco round, but Na`Vi took control of proceedings with guns in hand and restored parity on two occasions. They would not be able to go the extra mile, though, as Alex "ALEX" McMeekin's troops assembled a compact defense and switched to a double AWP setup to win five rounds in a row en route to a 16-11 victory.

Really simple is so dumb. Because of him many times team Navi loose and this time is not the new one. So better retire simple or start playing with your team and be a team player. Between the #veterns like rpk and apex is love!!
2019-10-05 22:01
Imagine asking s1mple to retire just coz he couldn't perform in one map regardless of his 1.22 insane rating in the tournament.
2019-10-06 09:44
Bro if you take the performance as whole it is very good but my friend if you can't perform at the last stage then it doesn't matter. Win is win for god sake otherwise whatever you want to say. I know he is a good player but if navi is not winning he is the major reason. With great skill comes the great responsibility.

2019-10-05 22:32
mouz better than navi They lost 2-1 with close scores like 16-14*16-13 If Shox didn't get a 1v3 clutch, maybe they wouldn't win.

then your statement is completely irrelevant and false thank you.
2019-10-06 08:54
false in what exactly, you are the one that misunderstood my original comment to begin with. s1mple is no longer the one using the AWP to rekt rifle players, he is now a rifle player himself that gets rekt by the players using the awp as shown from this game with Zywoo

"welcome back to what other players has to deal with." Absolutely false. i didnt even mentioned simple. and even comparing simple to zywoo both are good with rifles. Simple changed his role so might forgive him an event.
2019-10-06 18:18
When did I say you mentioned s1mple? i was just explaining what i meant originally at #147 in my #211. this was a comment describing s1mple's performance in the semi final match. when i say welcome back to what others had to deal with i was talking about him getting getting shut down and outfragged in the series by zywoo, an awp star, just like how he use to against everyone else last year when he had the awp which is true. He dominated everyone and was the best player how was this false

Yhea people don't realize that s1mple isn't a rifler, he was in the past but since 2018 you can't come back from that awping role. What's the point of having an awper weaker than a rifler, feels like Faze has given them clues on how to not place players according to their role (hello Niko; hello Olof; hello Broky). s1mple's rating will continue to drop as a rifler, it just how it goes; Zywoo and Elige are contenders for top #1 in 2019, s1mple isn't and it's been the case for months already.
2019-10-06 01:13
I don't get it, s1mple 0.88 kpr with AWP but goes back to rifle, and Guardian in faze with awp barely sub 0.70 kpr , like why change role? it would've been a real spectacle to see zywoo AWP vs s1mple AWP but no, S1mple plays rifle and gets caught off guard and flashed every round like he forgot how to just play rifle after 2 years of not full rifle. why not s1mple secondary awp sometime rather than full rifle? best player 2018 and carried harder than guardian when both awped in navi, it doesnt make sense

he did pick up the awp a bit on Dust II while guardian was back to rifle omfg, it gave him a bit of momentum but nothing more unfortunately for them. Vitality as I said before the game is an hard-working/tactical team, when you see Na'Vi demos with this lineup my eyes just bleed. Boombl4 actually won Nuke was afk pushing, this sort of things only work once, Na'Vi isn't a good nuke team by any means. But yhea it was obvious from the start that s1mple going back to rifle was pretty much his downfall for the rest of the year, didn't understand why people were so hyped about it, a rifler has less freedom on CT sides than an awper and Electronic is a better rifler than he ever was so there's no point.

I love how Na'Vi fans went and said that this Na'Vi was better than the previous one lmao they didn't watch their game against NIP did they ? Boombl4 just won Nuke because he was afk pushing like he does in FPL like a monkey but yhea Vitality threw Nuke, their map pick and still won pretty easely, expected stuff if you actually watch Na'Vi demos and see all their mistakes while Vitality is a tactical team and not a skill-based/ momentum based-team.

fanboys, anyone with decent eyes and analysing skills could spot the flawks in Na'Vi's setups in a bunch of maps (overpass/inferno are especially bad). Dust II was arguably their best map and they still lost it
2019-10-06 02:50
lose overpass and dust2 badly means awper/guardian's fault

I love how s1mple would run in ECO rounds, never seen him rush that fast to hunt down ecos lmao; it was obviously to get the money but still usually he plays agressive with the awp or baits his teammates. Now he's a rifler and can't do so and he's bad when he plays passive. Unless he becomes Device by the end of the year I don't see him do well, he's underwhelming since Starseries

why people are so hatred whenever their team wins... it's fine if vitality wins... good to see fnatic vs vitality but it's the 1st tournament for Navi and I don't think they did bad except the fact that they are still losing eco round which should have never happened and if they didn't lose that 11-11 eco round on d2 I'm sure vitality would have done their but yaa luck was with vitality yesterday soo chill out bro
