Na`Vi to DreamHack semifinal!
After yesterday's win against the Brazilian team Luminosity, Natus Vincere players advanced to the semifinal of DreamHack Cluj-Napoca, where they will have to encounter the Swedes from Ninjas in Pyjamas in the best-of-3 series.
The success of Swedes came as a surprise to everybody. They managed to reach the quarter finals from the Lower Bracket, after losing to Titan (bo1) in their first match. Afterwards, they outplayed Team Liquid, and once again met the French from Titan, this time winning with a 2:0 score. Then, NiP have managed to step up and win in the quarterfinal match against TSM, even though most bets were placed on the Danish team.
Professional casters came to the conclusion that NiP’s came to this tournament incredibly well-prepared. friberg is currently in his best form, as he manages to do great in almost every round. Tactics that are now used by NiP are based on his individual performance, and the decision has already shown some great results. friberg was entry-fragging in most rounds, and the team benefited from it tremendously. Also, the Swedes have won many important clutches.
It’s not a secret that the intentions that Natus Vincere has are also very serious. Our players demonstrated them in every single match, showing great focus and dedication to the game. They altered from slow rounds to quick rush attacks, trying to confuse their opponents and gain advantage. The match against NiP will be extremely intense, especially considering that our team also features some great aimers that can play well against friberg and co.
The last offline match against the Swedes was played within the framework of DreamHack Open Summer 2015, and Na`Vi have managed to win back then to advance to the grand final. Besides, the Born to Win have won against them in the last two ESL ESEA matches online. However, this tournament has so far shown that you can’t predict the result of the match considering online results, so the team that will show the best game will come out on top. This match will decide the finalist of the tournament that will face the winner of Team EnVyUs G2 clash. Let’s cheer for Natus Vincere and hope that we’ll see some beautiful plays, smart clutches and well-prepared tactics tonight!
