Into the playoffs!

After the victory over se fnatic , ua NAVI.GG.BET makes it to the playoffs of FACEIT Major and secures the status of "Legends" for the next major - IEM Katowice 2019!

ua Natus Vincere started the tournament from a tough encounter: the team was defeated in the match with dk Astralis. The game with the Danes took place on Inferno, and until the last moment, it was not clear who would become the winner. Unfortunately, in the end dk Astralis turned out to be more focused and won with a score of 16:14.

After the failure in the first round, our guys managed to get themselves together and show an excellent game in a duel with eu FaZe Clan. Despite the unsuccessful beginning of the meeting (1:6), players of ua NAVI did not lose hope for a possible comeback and achieved the desired win after taking a force buy in defense! As a result, the guys came back into the game after 5:11 and did not allow Europeans to earn more than one point later (16:12 - Overpass).

After making it into 1-1 group The Born to Win was set to meet with se NiP. From the very beginning ua NAVI took the duel under control, never allowed to doubt their victory and completed the game with the score 16: 6 (Train). In the fourth round draw ua NAVI had to face another Swedish team - se fnatic. This game was the one for exit to the playoffs, and, beating se fnatic (16:9 - Mirage), our guys guaranteed themselves the status of "Legends"!

It is worth noting that one of the best players, not only among the Born to Win, but among all participants of the tournament (third place) became ru Denis "electroNic" Sharipov (rating 1.44). In addition to ru electroNic, ua Oleksandr "s1mple" Kostyliev (rating 1.42) left his mark just as well. Sasha also had the best KAST (87.6%).

Congratulations to our five on a worthy performance in the group stage and an exit into the playoffs! The final stage of the tournament will be held on September 20-23, and the opponent of ua NAVI will be determined after the end of Sunday matches. We hope that our players will be able to effectively use the remaining time until Thursday and get ready for the quarterfinal match! #gonavi
