COVERAGE: IEM San Jose

 

Our team received an invitation from the organizers of IEM SAN JOSE to participate in the tournament. The event will be held on 21–22 November. Na`Vi players are ready to fight! Every tournament of Extreme Masters is not only a competition for them, but also a principle combat over the love and respect of the fans.

 

Intel Extreme Masters San Jose organizers have gifted the best teams a chance to compete over the title of the champion as well as the prize pool of 125 000 $. A competition in San Jose won’t feature a conventional group stage. All teams will play in a single elimination bo3 format, and one loss will be enough to drop out of the tournament and spend the rest of the time sightseeing and watching matches of other teams. The tournament will run for two days, on 21–22 November. Extreme Masters San Jose will also feature a League of Legends competition.

 

UkraineNa`Vi has been seeded as one of four stronger teams, and will encounter BrazilLuminosity in the first round. Overall, the seeding resembles the one that could be seen in the playoff stage of DreamHack in Romania. Strong Brazilian team Luminosity will be the first challenge of our guys. Not so long ago we outplayed the Brazilians on de_dust2 and de_overpass. In case ofwinning over Luminosity, we will move on to battle against the winner of DenmarkTSM VS United StatesCloud9 clash.

 

Extreme Masters tournament series is of particular importance for our team, since it was IEM 4 World Championship Finals where the history of such Na`Vi players as Ukraine ZeusUkraine EdwardUkraine starix, Ukraine ceh9 began. Back in 2010, after winning Extreme Masters gold, the team became known all around the world. They became the first CIS roster to conquer such a high peak. Now, after 4 years, Zeus and Edward are still playing in Na`Vi lineup, whereas starix occupied the position of a team coach. From then on, every Extreme Masters championship has meant more than many other competitions.
