Natus Vincere sweep G2 to win IEM Katowice

With two dominant map wins — on Nuke and Mirage —, and a tight victory on Dust2, Natus Vincere claimed a 3-0 win over G2 in the grand final of IEM Katowice to secure the title in Poland.

Only three organizations have been champions in Katowice since the start of CS:GO, the Polish legends of Virtus.pro, fnatic with two different lineups, and Astralis — once with Emil "⁠Magisk⁠" Reif and once with Markus "⁠Kjaerbye⁠" Kjærbye. Natus Vincere and G2 reaching the grand final of IEM Katowice 2020 meant that a new champion would be crowned in Poland, and a new name would enter the Intel Grand Slam race, joining the likes of mousesports and Evil Geniuses.

The two best performers at the event going into the grand final were Kenny "⁠kennyS⁠" Schrub and Aleksandr "⁠s1mple⁠" Kostyliev, the two accomplished AWPers, both hoping to add their first IEM Katowice title to their names. Despite G2's impressive form over the last month and an undefeated run at the tournament, Natus Vincere's stomping of Astralis in the semi-final saw them assume the title of the favorites going into the match.

The series started on G2's map pick, Nuke, where Natus Vincere put up a wall, claiming a 16-4 win with Kirill "⁠Boombl4⁠" Mikhailov reaching a personal record rating-wise. Dust2 was more of a back and forth, but with an activated s1mple and Ilya "⁠Perfecto⁠" Zalutskiy showing up clutch, the CIS side extended their series lead to 2-0. Mirage was a similar story to Nuke, as Natus Vincere had a near-perfect CT side to claim a straightforward victory in the series.

By winning IEM Katowice, Natus Vincere have secured their first Big Event win since StarSeries i-League Season 7 in April 2019, when Danylo "⁠Zeus⁠" Teslenko and Ioann "⁠Edward⁠" Sukhariev were still a part of their lineup. With Boombl4 and Perfecto lifting their first such trophy, Natus Vincere have also joined the Intel Grand Slam race.

Natus Vincere claim the IEM Katowice 2020 title

Natus Vincere started furiously on the CT side of Nuke, G2's map pick, with Boombl4 leading the way for the Russian-Ukrainian side. The in-game leader picked up a hat-trick in the pistol and then a double and a triple kill in the first two rifle rounds to set up Natus Vincere for a big lead on the defense.

G2 were down 8-0 and only put down the bomb once in the half, finding themselves completely locked out, before finally getting on the board with a strong A site execute. However, with none of their players surviving and a loss in the follow-up, G2 once again struggled economically which only made Natus Vincere's life easier.

With Boombl4 continuing his outstanding performance, posting a 28K-6D scoreline and eight opening kills, Natus Vincere cruised to a 14-1 half while giving away only one opening duel on the CT side. With a vent dive strategy in the pistol, Natus Vincere reached map point, converting it into a 16-4 win following Denis "⁠electronic⁠" Sharipov's triple.

G2 were left stumped by Na`Vi's defenses on Nuke

electronic's 1v2 clutch on the T-side pistol on Dust2 was quickly replied on by G2, who won a force buy to start building momentum for the first time in the series. Nemanja "⁠huNter-⁠" Kovač was the standout player with 15 kills in nine rounds, powering his team to a 7-2 lead. Natus Vincere, after failing to get on the board with their A executes, finally cracked the code in round ten, winning a round to break G2's streak and bank.

After a quiet start on Nuke, Perfecto topped the board for Natus Vincere as they came back to end the half in the lead, 8-7. After the switch, force-buy battles ensued, with Natus Vincere getting the upper hand. They put down the foot on the CT side to reach a 13-8 lead when Nemanja "⁠nexa⁠" Isaković won a crucial 1v3, inspiring a comeback from the French-Serbian side. They exploited weaknesses towards the A bombsite and tied five together to equalize the score, 13-13, but stumbled at the final hurdle. Three retakes were pulled off by Natus Vincere to claim Dust2, with a 1v2 clutch from Perfecto sealing the deal.

Perfecto and Boombl4 have won their first event with Na`Vi

With Natus Vincere needing just one more map to claim the title in Poland, the action moved to Mirage where G2 had another rough start. This time it was Egor "⁠flamie⁠" Vasilyev who was causing them issues, claiming 12 kills in the first four rounds of the map after finishing Dust2 with just 10. Natus Vincere showed no sign of stopping there, locking down the approaches on Mirage to claim another 14-1 CT half. After 15 rounds, s1mple had just one death to his name, while Perfecto was flawless, 14K-0D.

G2 claimed the pistol round on the CT side but no momentum was built as a force-buy stuck back from Natus Vincere, bringing an end to the map, 16-2, and making it a 3-0 for the series.

People say domination makes game boring to watch. But this Navi domination is something different. Just see how every Navi player is individually playing. Nailing every shot,winning every duel. They way they are playing , looks like they don't need any strat.They can just take dry peek ,take any duel ,go gun blazing and still end up winning.This Navi dominant gives me boner During Astralis era, Astralis was dominant too but their dominance was boring to watch.Their play was heavily dependent on utility usage.No flashy,adrenaline,risky play. Look at this Navi. damn. so good to watch

As a French fan it was so fuckin obvious. Even tho G2 won against multiple good opponents and showing that they are clearly a top5 (if not top3) team atm. Navi showed a clearly crazy insane skill lvl. I did bet 50$ on them winning 3-0 btw. I half hoped they would lose but it was a 99% chance win for Navi

the biggest takeaway from this is that Navi just reminded the CIS region they are still the powerhouse of CIS. All those players that rejected their offer will always look back and wonder.

NaVi definitely dominated this BO5 and deserved this trophy. They had more experience and they had more desire to win. G2 played too secared and made some questionable calls, definitely not what we wanted to see tonight. To be honest I am afraid this NaVi run was just temporary and this is not gonna be NaVi era at all, we will need to wait and see.

So the closest game who played with Navi this event was Faze. Losing 16:14 on 3rd map just proves how much Faze has improved as well. Glad for Navi tho. Keep up
