BLAST Pro Series Madrid: Day 1

CS2 / News / 9 May 2019 — 22:35

The first game against ENCE, second game against Cloud 9

On the first day of BLAST Pro Series Madrid, ua NAVI.GG.BET will hold two matches; against fi ENCE (starts at 22:45 CEST) and against us Cloud 9 (starts at 22:15 CEST). Both games will be Bo1.

After losing to ua NAVI in the quarterfinals of StarSeries S7 (1: 2), the Finnish top five played ESEA MDL Season 31 with es Movistar Riders and fr Vitality and lost to both teams. Thus, the last time the Finns were at the LAN tournament was a little more than a month ago. Back then there were talks that fi suNny would join the team, but they remained to be rumors. The match will take place on Mirage.

The first game day will end with a meeting of ua Natus Vincere against ua Cloud 9. After an unsuccessful performance in Miami (last place), the third qualification of ECS S7 and the qualifying round of ESL Pro League S9 was at the doorstep for the ua Cloud 9. In these competitions, ua Cloud 9 was not fortunate enough, the team lost to br INTZ in the ECS qualification final, and also ranked third in Group C in the first round of the ESL Pro League.

The last meeting of ua NAVI and ua Cloud9 was at the BLAST Pro Series in Miami. Back then the victory celebrated our five with a score of 16: 13(Overpass). The upcoming fight will also unfold on Mirage. We hope that ua NAVI will be stronger in both matches and hence will earn the maximum amount of points! #NAVINATION

Mirage - Natus Vincere [4:16] ENCE

In the pistol round, fi ENCE successfully pursued the center of the map and scored the first point. ua Natus Vincere players, in turn, responded with a force buy win. However, the CT returned the favor and won the force buy themselves. Subsequently, fi ENCE led the match with a score of 4: 1.

The sixth round was lossless for the defense side. Then the teams exchanged rounds: our guys were stronger in eco, but then fi ENCE successfully restrained the quick entry of terrorists to the B-plant. After losing two more rounds, ua NAVI took time out. Born to win did not manage to get a lot of points in the attack, and the guys lost the first half of the meeting with a score of 3:12.

In order to increase the chances of a comeback for the defense side, ua NAVI had to preferably win either a pistol round or a force buy. Our players failed to achieve any of these points. As a result, fi ENCE beat ua Natus Vincere on Dust2 - 16: 4.

Mirage - Natus Vincere [16: 7] Cloud9

The first pistol round, in which ua s1mple and ru electroNic made two frags each, and also the eco round went to the ua NAVI's asset. As is usual in the current meta, the first full buy, the audience witnessed in the third round; it ended in favor of the Born to Win. This development led to ua Natus Vincere players taking the lead - 4: 0.

ua Cloud 9 was able to interrupt the winning streak of our team in the sixth round. After losing the second point in a row, the CT had problems with money. After two rounds, ua NAVI regained the initiative in the match: they won two buy rounds and forced the rival to make an eco. The end of the first half of the meeting was in favor of ua NAVI - score of 11: 4.

The start of the second half on Mirage remained after ua Cloud9: the Americans won the pistol round, force buy and eco. However, losing only one round led to the economic loss of the counterterrorist. The last chance for ua Cloud9 to hang on to this game was the twenty-second round.

However, the Cloud 9 failed in this round and as a result ua NAVI received eight match points. The final result is 16: 7 in favor of ua Natus Vincere.
