Natus Vincere came from behind to beat PinG twice on de_dust2 and win Arbalet Cup Ukraine 2010.
In the first de_dust2 set, PinG were first to add their name to the scoreboard, but Na´Vi's purchasing attempt in the third round bore fruits as they turned the score around. Although PinG still managed to level the game on three rounds, the rest of the first half belonged to Na´Vi as they were up 12-3.
The second half brought a Na´Vi team determined to quickly put an end to the match, but a good eco strategy from PinG in the second round halted their opponents' plans. However, that did little to stop Na´Vi, who went on to win the first map 16-5.
The stage ofthe second map was de_dust2 again, and PinG started out the brighter once again, winning the first three rounds, before Na´Vi put in a comeback, inspired by some solid play from Ioann "Edward" Sukharev, as they claimed seven unanswered rounds. PinG still tried to make something out of the first half, but all they managed to accomplish was to make it 10-5 at half time.
In the second half, PinG, now as Terrorist, won the opening two rounds, before Na´Vi showed some impressive deagle work to get back into the game. From then on, Na´Vi controlled procedures, as they ran out 16-8 winners on the second map to lift the Arbalet Cup trophy.
