Major Europe Qualifier: Groups revealed
The groups for The Frankfurt Major European qualifier were revealed a few hours ago. The qualifying stage, held on 10–13 October, will determine one team out of ten participants that will get a desirable invitation to the biggest Dota 2-event of this fall.
Natus Vincere got into a quite difficult group B, which includes such teams as CIS Rejects, (monkey) Business and Ninjas in Pyjamas. Our guys encountered the first two of them in their recent matches, and, unfortunately, were defeated both times. And even though they played quite well against the CIS squad and finished with a 1:2 score, in the game versus (monkey) Business something went wrong, and the Born to Win were left with absolutely no chance.
As far as the Swedish five is concerned, they have been experiencing a similar loss streak lately. They were defeated a few times, but in the last match against Ninjas in Pyjamas have finally taken a long-awaited win. Despite their downturn, the team still remains one of the strongest European squads and is considered to be the fifth best team in Europe according to gosugamers ranking.
The last group B participant will be determined tomorrow, when the winner of open qualifiers will join four other teams.
Natus Vincere players are currently bootcamping and preparing for the upcoming matches. Let’s keep our fingers crossed and hope that these few days will be enough for them to solve all problems they are going through and show some excellent plays for their fans again.
