It was expected that this stage would be very difficult for Germany Xixo. However, in reality, Sebasitan easily defeated all his opponents in a fight over the champion's title. In grand final Germany Xixo defeated another German Germany EURO.TwoBiers, 4:1 and took first place.


This isn't the first victory of Xixo this month. Let's hope, he'll continue pleasing us with his achievements!


Comments by Germany Sebastian "Na`Vi.Xixo" Bentert:
«The tournament consisted of 32 players, so I knew my chances to win were rather slim. But having in mind this could be my 5th consecutive invitational win in a row I was really motivated regardless. My patron warrior went 8-2 over the course of the tournament and got banned in most of the matches, so I'm happy I could prove the dead isn't dead. I hope I could satisfy all of my and Na'Vi's fans and promise to try my best to keep the streak going. Keep cheering!»
