Na`Vi is DreamHack runner-up
The grand-final match of DreamHack Cluj-Napoca is over. Our team finished one step away from the victory after the loss against the French players from EnVyUs. Despite the defeat, the result shown by our guys is definitely worthy of respect, especially considering all great plays they have shown over the course of the last 5 days.
The Born to Win had all chances to come out on top in this intense grand-final clash. One of their strongest maps, de_train, was played first, but they were a little less lucky, sometimes less composed, and the map ended differently than it could. A close 16:14 score proves it out. The next map, de_cobblestone, was the rival's pick, and most rounds went under the perfect control of EnVyUs. Even though Natus Vincere players weren't giving up and fought till the end, they unfortunately failed to stop the momentum of the French, motivated by the win on the first map.
