Na`Vi at IEM Season XI closed qualifiers
Starting from tomorrow, February 4th, Natus Vincere G2A will begin a new adventure at the IEM Season XI World Championship -- EU Closed Qualifiers. A total of eleven teams will battle in a double elimination Bo3 bracket, where only the best three teams will claim a ticket for the main event at IEM Katowice and a chance to win part of the $250,000 prize pool.
Five teams, including Na`Vi, received a direct invite, while the others earned the right to participate through the first and second open qualifiers during the past days. Thanks to the invite, we will start directly from the winners' round 2, while the qualified teams have to play one more Bo3; however small, the advantage can make a big difference in the final results.

Natus Vincere’s first game will take place on February 4th at 18.00 CET, but the opponent is currently TBA. We will battle against the winner of the previous round -- either GODSENT or Tricked Esport. A victory will result in our advance to the winners’ round 3, while a defeat will drop our guys into the much less favorable losers’ round 1.
We wish the best of luck to our players, and hope they will swiftly qualify: winning two consecutive Bo3, first tomorrow at 18:00 CET, and second on Sunday 15:00 CET, will instantly grant a spot in Katowice.
