We start with a victory!

The first match of ua NAVI.GG.BET at ESL Pro League S7 Finals was against kr MVP PK. The Bo1 on de_mirage was taken by ua Natus Vincere with a score of 16:7.

Game 1 - Natus Vincere [1:0] MVP PK

The game started off not too well for our team, as ua NAVI dropped the pistols and the following 2 rounds, to make the score 0:3. The first one where we were able to get good weapons was round 4, and from there on it was a pretty smooth sailing. We were taking round after round, first tying the game 3:3, and then sprinting right ahead, claiming 8 points to take the half. As we've hit 9, though, kr MVP PK made a small comeback, as we were unable to close the half convincingly. We end the first half with a 9:6 - not the most comfortable, but still a lead.

The second half started with the pistols going to the opponent yet again, as they came in with a retake and a defuse. Still, ua NAVI used their tactical pause, and took the next couple of rounds, upsetting the economy of the opponent. The 13th point was taken by us, as we've played on A through the connector, but ended up planting on the B side. Even though some rounds were pretty close, nonetheless ua NAVI hit the 15th point. The last round saw a rather quick 4v2 - we take de_mirage!
