Na´Vi claim DH Summer bronze

June 20th, 2011 20:17

Natus Vincere have secured the bronze at DreamHack Summer 2011, taking home approximately €1,120.

Starting the third-place decider on de_train, Na´Vi quickly worked their way up to a fashionable lead, while ESC Gaming snatched five rounds when the first half-time concluded (10-5).

Switching sides, ESC Gaming got off to the better start, engraving their name on the first three rounds. However, Natus Vincere quickly struck back and tied them up.

Meanwhile, after the tie-up, ESC Gaming gained momentum and shot past the Ukrainian powerhouse, securing more and more rounds to take the match in for overtime.

During the overtime, ESC Gaming managed to claim the first round, but the rest belonged to Natus Vincere, who closed it at 19-16.

Moving on to de_tuscan, the teams started out by fighting round for round, but eventually, Natus Vincere kicked in and sealed the first half-time at 10-5.

After switching sides, Natus Vincere claimed the first rounds and gained the advantage. However, after the three-round mark, ESC Gaming retaliated.

Retaliation or not, the Scandinavian team failed to exploit their win from the following round, and their opponents secured the win at 16-6.

Next up is the DreamHack MSI Championship Grand Final, which will see SK Gaming and mTw fight it out at approximately 21:00 CET.

nice but not enough for navy

Pus generally seems to have the article prepared by the time the match ends, logically writing the article WHILE watching the match :P
2011-06-20 21:19

2011-06-20 21:31
people were trolling that esc was better than na'vi, after esc beated na'vi on nuke. so i was being ironic.
2011-06-20 21:40
2011-06-20 20:21
SK will take this tournament. SK very strong. DH'11 - SK 100%
2011-06-20 20:21
€1,120. I want to see Zeus's taking this money :D
2011-06-20 20:22
Na`Vi >SK Na`Vi need more training =/
2011-06-20 20:22

2011-06-21 05:42
theyre a new team. Will only get better
2011-06-21 07:22
thats wasnt what i meant...but at last? you dont have to wait long for a swedish team to win :).
2011-06-21 08:23
:S WTF ??
2011-06-20 20:45
i dont think that anyone trains harder than navi in europe...
2011-06-20 20:49
markeloff need traning. Delpan > markeloff at SK vs NAVI MATCH
2011-06-20 20:49
Stop joking. Maybe Na`Vi lose in great fight vs SK, but markeloff > delpan totaly.

u sure u watched match ?!
2011-06-20 21:03
As I watch'd markeloff was rly better :P But delpi will train.
2011-06-20 21:18
are you blind?
2011-06-20 22:58
if more training navi > sk true
2011-06-20 20:51
NAVI LOOSE ! problem ?
2011-06-20 21:06
wtf? that didn't make any sense Na'vi lineup owned 2010, and still need training? SK has this lineup since the beginning of the year, and your saying Navi needs more training? ROFL
2011-06-20 21:07
ofc they need, they were out of comeptitions like 3 or 4 months cause of Zeus and his family.
2011-06-20 21:43
they are practising the most out of all the teams, so out of training is now excuse. SK are simply better atm
2011-06-21 01:46
if you say so, for what i watched in their last video i'view, edward said that after such long time without playing, they are only feeling that they are geting back in their old shape, but who am i to desagree with u a professional cs analaser tha know more than Na'vi edward himself. I'm not a na'vi fanboy, i'm glad that there is a team tha can chalange their number 1 status and cs isn't boring like last year, that you could only espect na'vi wining every tournament they were in. But still is too soon to tell, if this Sk lineup will prevail, or just fail like the last ones.
2011-06-21 02:30
look, edward will say whatever he want to make it sound like they are "out of shape" and whatever. everyone knows that na'vi wouldn't attend an event without being prepared. they skipped one event this year because of this. and everyone knows that na'vi practise sick much, and more than everyone else. that's why they got so good in 2010. and fyi: sk is the best team atm, doesn't mean that i think they'll bash everyone at the next event. but it's looking good for them however.. atm
2011-06-21 03:18
edward i-view was before the tournament so.. i don't thin he was trying to excuse a future lost. But still on paper for me the line ups are pretty evem
2011-06-21 09:29
SK has this complete line-up since like a month ago.
2011-06-20 22:48
bahahaha more training? how much more training can they possibly do? they train more than any other team, and they trained really hard for nuke in this tourney and still lost....i hate fanboys
2011-06-21 06:51
Ofc they need more training - just look at Edward, he's totally out of shape because he couldn't pracc with his broken screen
2011-06-21 17:48
congrats no motivation after semi loss i guess
2011-06-20 20:22
Great game, great map by esc, they deserve the 4º place without a doubt.
2011-06-20 20:23
2011-06-20 20:24
gg Na'Vi, ESWC your. Na'Vi always lose some tournament to win world tournament.
2011-06-20 20:25
+1. It's like a tradition.
2011-06-20 20:50
top3? navi low!
2011-06-20 20:25
2011-06-20 22:14
hope they'll get gold next time

I felt markeloff and starix were under their standards this tournament. Zeus was consistent and played very well, Edward played well too. Ceh9 was fantastic in the last 2 maps against SK especially inferno. They showed great determination throughout the SK match... It's never easy to win a map convincingly right after losing 16-3 although i feel SK threw away train as they should have had that map in the bag as well... It's easier to get to the top than to maintain your position on top. SK deserved to win today, no denying that!

I think markeloff was pretty good, but I agree that starix was definitely not performing :-(
2011-06-20 20:32
India kh4N 
I didn't mean to say markeloff played poor, I just meant to say he didn't perform up to his standards... Starix had his good moments, like his 1v4 clutch against SK in de_nuke as T Side, but other than that I felt he, just like markeloff, didn't play up to their normal standard.
2011-06-20 20:38
United Kingdom wap 
well yeah we all know what markeloff is capable of so thats true. But I mean I think starix had an really awful tournament, but on the otherhand ceh9 was amazing!
2011-06-20 20:40
Could anyone remind me the attendants od Adepto in Bosnia and the date pls ?
2011-06-20 20:28
Thank you so much =)

off topic: then ESWC taking place? Last years it was like dreamhack or i am wrong?

september or october. i don't remember
2011-06-20 20:33

it's better than nothing
2011-06-20 20:38

gj na'vi! sk deserves this title but I still love u! (?
2011-06-20 20:36
2011-06-20 20:36
Wait for WCG to see the real Na'Vi strats.
2011-06-20 20:40
it's not about strats really. they just don't need to shot each other, lose to eco and wait for Robban to wallbang etc.
2011-06-20 20:50
This is your opinion, there is mine.
2011-06-20 21:14
Na'Vi > SK Na'Vi > SK Na'Vi > SK Na'Vi > SK Na'Vi > SK Na'Vi > SK Na'Vi > SK Na'Vi > SK Na'Vi > SK Na'Vi > SK
2011-06-20 20:47
we saw.
2011-06-20 20:48
Obviously, shown in the last game.
2011-06-20 22:49
yeap only because of one game everyone considers sk the best team in the Universe ... madness And no1 cares that na'vi totally dominated a year and a half
2011-06-21 05:49
We'll see :)
2011-06-21 10:43
maybe sk > navi (MAYBE)=)) but fx > all 4sho!:D
2011-06-21 16:20
friis > markeloff is wayyyy better
2011-06-20 20:49
Who is.. hmmm... friis?
2011-06-20 20:53
Friis is great, the best danish awp. But wait, markeloff is the best World awp, mate. Be objective!
2011-06-20 21:03
Na`Vi=SK, but Na`Vi were so tired( they didnt sleep alot.
2011-06-20 20:51
You guys and your excuses
2011-06-20 20:53
ye and who are u? how do you know how much they slept??
2011-06-20 21:08
okay, they played with Millenium late at night and after 6 hours the game began with mTw
2011-06-21 01:55
so they are like bears
2011-06-21 05:50
shut your mouth borat
2011-06-21 07:29
if they didnt do that retarded strat on inferno where they went for NO ECOS AT ALL in the first 5 rounds only galils ...they could have won vs sk....
2011-06-20 20:52
World MangQo 
not enough:(
2011-06-20 21:02
lol i still think Na'Vi is number one still. They threw one map away just by not banning de_nuke, i respect they are trying to train it, but would be an easier ride without playing nuke. SK can still develop to be really strong, but we will see until next tourney...
2011-06-20 21:02
2011-06-20 21:09
Na`Vi #1 World. Top3 in one tournament is not bad at all. They will win rest(or part of rest) tournaments. And I'm sure, they will win WCG and ESWC. 1/3 biggest tournaments they done - IEM.
2011-06-20 21:04
Congratulations !
2011-06-20 21:05
no de_dust2 - no win =(
2011-06-20 21:05
I love Na`Vi team, they're powerful, consistent and strategic. And IMO, its just one lucky map by SK. Next day Na`Vi will be first again. GOGO! Fx vs Na`Vi - great final of all tournament.
2011-06-20 21:06
The best team ever. Its just not their day I think. They're need to pracc this f*ckin' DE_NUKE! :) Hope to see them 1st as always!
2011-06-20 21:07
good navi)
2011-06-20 21:08
Next time, Na`Vi, next time... Don't worry, you will show 'em your power.
2011-06-20 21:09
3 place it s norm
2011-06-20 21:09
2011-06-20 21:35
Well, on inferno SK have a lil' bit of luck imo. :> Hope to see final SK vs Na`Vi next event.
2011-06-20 21:10
Nope, next final will be mTw vs Na`Vi! :p :p :p
2011-06-20 21:11
No way! :D
2011-06-20 21:11
no-no-no xD
2011-06-20 21:15
haha =)
2011-06-20 22:19
-Welcome home Yegor! How r u? How was on the tournament? -Aah, really bad. We got 3rd place. not as sick as normal na'vi
2011-06-20 21:11
Thats right, mate. But they were great.
2011-06-20 21:12
i hope they will stick together and pracc a lot. and prove to world they're the best again.
2011-06-20 21:15
They are the best and still are, they dont lose there status as number one by losing in a bestof3 which consisted of de_nuke, and had the option to ban it. Maybe they were confident they couldn win it 2-1 and give them a free map. They were not up to standard like normal (starix). Stick Together? ofc.. i dont see them making any changes at all.
2011-06-20 21:20
2011-06-20 21:22
2011-06-20 21:16
good game Na`Vi! next time you will prove you are the best
2011-06-20 21:19
2011-06-20 21:33
omg in 2010 navi not always take 1st too. 3rd it nice.. why you talking so bad...... gl UKRAINE!
2011-06-20 21:35
Because they're biggest grand on all tournaments?
2011-06-20 21:37
cuz all wait for 1st place by them...
2011-06-20 21:39
+1 mtw fnatic sk and others play in 2010 not so good as navi but people still trust and still like watch they play. dont be angry on na`vi. they train hard. they give 100% of they passion and souls it's not a shame lose 2-1 vs sk gl navi
2011-06-20 21:55
is it the end of navi supremacy?
2011-06-20 21:45
for the first time, I gotta say this, ceh9 was the best and most constant player of Na'Vi on this tournament
2011-06-20 21:47
delpan owning trace all over
2011-06-20 22:02
€1,120 for third place is this a joke ?
2011-06-20 22:12
xaaxa nope
2011-06-20 22:37
Yeah Na`Vi really needed more training, not enough time together. Haven't gotten the chance to really bond and learn eachothers' playstyles.
2011-06-20 22:51
SK = NaVi > mTw
2011-06-20 22:53
2011-06-20 23:09
Na'Vi aren't first and everybody is shocked. They can't win always but player's still owning and i think today they play different, without idea.
2011-06-20 23:56
Swedish people so rise ,you all know that NaVi is better then SK :> . SK stealing players from team , ruining all organisation plans ,so pussy
2011-06-21 00:04
Better? lol Mb before that time. Now SK - best team of the world. SK rape navi.
2011-06-21 08:30
i think SK rape you all time f*cking shit from BR@BL@Y
2011-06-21 13:43
Thats European c'ship. Not World. So don't say shit.
2011-06-21 16:04
If SK won once vs Na'Vi, they are not the best team in the world, only 3+ wins vs NA'Vi, maybe then they will be the best team in the world. A lot of teams won Na'Vi, k23 in BO3 ASUS, all french teams on ESWC and others it's not make them the best team in the world.
2011-06-21 17:49
i was depressed after navi loss, it was a bad day but tbh sk did better and deserved the champ, gl na'vi show us what you really are on eswc and wcg, don't let us fans down.
2011-06-21 01:17
2011-06-21 01:25
Who gives a shit... SK - TOP 1!
2011-06-21 08:26
after that ceh9 screaming ''sosat, suki sosatj'' i dont like navi at all. fk em. congratz SK, <3 mTw
2011-06-21 13:48
Oh my God, its just emotions... And its ceh9, he always screams. So don't be stupid.
2011-06-21 16:02
yeah senya ugly=) but marik is so cute:DDDD
2011-06-21 16:22
hehehe, esenin exploded!!!
2011-06-21 13:52
Basically to beat sk now na'vi is gonna have to play out of the minds..
