Natus Vincere finished 3rd @ WePlay DotA
The first round of the upper bracket became their last for team Natus Vincere. Evil Geniuses were able to get back into their shape and take some revenge for their recent defeat in Curse DotA2 Invitational. Note that it happened thanks to the absence of Alexander "XBOCT" Dashkevich. Want to find out more about the situation? Read our latest weekly review.

An interesting situation for Natus Vincere in the brackets. Almost all of the European teams got into the upper bracket while the lower bracket has two North-American teams and Alliance who we didn't get to face at EMS One. We'll see if foreign teams have something to show, as for now, we would like to remind you that in any case Na`Vi will face team Dignitas on 24.05.
All the matches in a best-of-three format will be casted. A team which gets to the final through the upper bracket will have no technical advantage over the upper bracket finalist.
