Gaming Paradise coverage


The first tournament of this autumn will run from 6–8 September in Slovenia. It will be held within the framework of Gaming Paradise, the eSports festival that lasts 7 days and gathers together gamers from all over the world. All games will be conducted in Portoroz, the resort city on the Adriatic coast.


The festival will feature 7 different eSport disciplines. Natus Vincere were directly invited to take part in a Counter-Strike: Global Offensive tournament, where they will diligently compete for the grand prize. Overall, the event in Portoroz will include 8 teams, 2 out of which have got their place in final stage through offline qualifier in Slovenia. There’s a lot at stake, as the prize pool reaches $ 50 000.


The tournament will be attended by the teams that played against our guys not so long ago, so the matches must be quite interesting. Na`Vi players promised to analyze their mistakes and come even stronger after ESL One, so we hope that they will please their fans with an incredible level of Counter-Strike.
