Hello to everyone from our Day One Live Coverage from Na`Vi's first LAN tournament for Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. The event under MadCatz CS:GO Invitational title is hosted in Imperial Riding School Renaissance Vienna Hotel, where all the teams also reside. Just as you know, our guys have been bootcamping for two weeks in our office in Kiev, Ukraine so we're looking forward to see them in real action which starts today at 14:30 CET for us. We got both  image n!faculty and image ESC Gaming in the group and we were able to beat these teams during practice so let's see how it goes live. Meanwhile we are going to enjoy Group A and B matches that start just right now at 10:00 CET.  

 

Just as usual we are going to provide you with tons of photo and video content from the event alongside with timely updates, so grab some popcorn and cola and enjoy the action together with image Natus Vincere!

18:06 - image e-Sports Serbia comes over their 2nd opponent and has just guaranteed a slot in the groupstage #2. This team is doing really great so far and support each other with loudy shoutouts to take advantage over other team's morale. ceh9 style, anyone?!

 

17:52 - According to ceh9, their match versus n!faculty will be postponed until the organizers fix German's team PC issues.  The match score will be reset to 0:0. Meanwhile we will be going into English team image CRG.

 

17:39 - Some hardware problems cause the delay in image n!faculty vs image Na`Vi match. starix had to have his PC changed and so asmo experienced some FPS issues with CS:GO.
