Game 1 went to the side of Russian Federation Team Spirit. Early game was favorable for Ukraine Na`Vi - we got First Blood in midlane: thanks to Puck Puck and Sand King Sand KingInvoker Invoker was the first to fall. Then, there were more pickoffs on the side of Na`Vi - the game was going well. Spirit Breaker Spirit Breaker was charging around the map, ganking and finding kills. However, after a while, Team Spirit gathered to take Roshan and they succeeded in doing so. Having claimed an Aegis of ImmortalTeam Spirit went bottom lane for a push that resuted in raxes being taken from Na`Vi at 12 minutes. The push continued in midlane - despite attempt to delay it, the pushing power coming out of TS was too strong. They claimed middle lane barracks, and went top, only to push it into the base. We have put up a good fight at the top barrack, but unfortunately, lost it, thus giving game 1 to the opponent.

Game 2 was claimed by Ukraine Natus Vincere. Early and mid game went quite rough for us - Invoker from TS got the first blood, but we snagged a return kill onto Treant Protector Treant Protector. The laning stage was pretty even, without many highlights. Hardlane Enchantress Enchantress from Team Spirit was giving Spectre Spectre some hard time in top lane, making it very challenging to farm. As the game progressed into its middle stage, it looked as if Na`Vi have very little chance to actually win the game, securing a draw and 1 point. However, a small skirmish 12 minutes in showed that even at this stage, we are force to be reckoned with. From there on, no major action was really happening - Aegises were claimed very often by TS, and not really contested. Despite the grim situation Na`Vi still had a trick up their sleeve, and that trick was lategame SpectreRussian Federation Dmitry "Ditya-Ra" Minenkov  was farming almost non-stop, getting his crucial items. A Gem of True Sight, purchased later in the game, got rid of some of Treant's Eyes in the Forest Eyes in the Forest, thus making jungle safer again. The strategy yielded its fruits as Ukraine Danil "Dendi" Ishutin purchased the Refresher Orb on his Magnus - double Reverse Polarity Reverse Polarities and Skewer Skewers were a great disabling tool; Ice Blast Ice Blast was the icing on the cake - minute 44 saw a huge teamfight that resulted in a Triple Kill for Spectre, who began to demonstrate her lategame hard carry nature. It was only a matter of time until next teamfight occured, and, sure enough, we emerged victorious from it - Spectre earned her Ultra Kill. From this point on, Na`Vi went to the enemy's half of the map and proceeded to destroy their towers in midlane. The final fight happened near midlane barracks of Team Spirit - both sides lost some of their heroes, and just when it seemed that the game will go on for another 10-20 minutes, Spectre bought back, only to Refresh her Haunt Haunt and enter back into the fray, wreaking havoc among exhausted heroes of TS, finishing some of them off. Thus, opponents had no options but to call a GG, finishing this Bo2 series with a draw.

Both teams went for a strongly push oriented line-up, with Natus Vincere getting the highly contested Chen Chen. With the late game favoring Mamas Boys, Na`Vi had to act fast. A shaky early game meant that the Born to Win squad lost the majority of their towers. Nonetheless, at around 20 minutes the match started to lean towards our team. A successful teamfight at 22 minutes secured the Aegis of Immortal for Ditya-Ra and our players went for an immediate push. It was not until 5 minutes later that Na`Vi managed to break the base on the back of three kills near the enemy base. A series of great Dream Coil Dream Coils resulted in further kills and Na`Vi got mega creeps not long after, forcing Mamas Boys to call “GG” at 29 minutes. A special mention has to go out to Russian Federation Akbar "SoNNeikO" Butaev for a very solid display on his support Vengeful Spirit Vengeful Spirit.

If it’s not broke, don’t fix it. Na’Vi yet again went for Puck and Vengeful Spirit while they also drafted Spectre, who secured a great comeback in the first series of the day. First blood went in favor of Mamas Boys, with Queen of Pain Queen of Pain finishing off Puck in the middle lane. However, Dendi managed to recover and overcome the slight deficit and went on a dominating streak in the early part of the game. At 11 minutes, the Dire side tried for a sneaky Roshan, securing and early Aegis, however Na`Vi instantly took the it away in a teamfight, managing to kill three heroes. This time, the late game favored Natus Vincere. After feeding away four kills to Mamas Boys, Na’vi replied with a kill on both cores of the opposition. Pick-offs were the name of the game. Both teams got kills here and there, while the cores of each side kept farming. 37 minutes into the match another teamfight went in the way of the Dire side, however, Na’Vi was looking stronger and stronger as the game progressed. The first Roshan of the Born to Win came at 47 minutes after killing yet another time the two cores of the opposition. Russian Federation Dmitry "Ax.Mo" Morozov showed his skills this time with some ridiculously precise hooks on his offlane  Clockwerk Clockwerk. On the back of the Aegis, Na’Vi went for a push and secured the first lane of barracks after wiping the whole enemy team. Four other kills followed not long after, with Na`Vi closing the game at 52 minutes.
