Overpass — Natus Vincere [4:16] Syman

The pistol and the economy round went into the ua NAVI's asset. The weaponry, in turn, ended in kz Syman's favor. Success in the next two draws allowed the opponent not only to take the lead, but also to leave the counter-terrorists without money.

After recovering the economy, the Born to Win had no problem handling the terrorist attacks twice. Unfortunately, it was not possible to take advantage of the obtained economic advantage — ua NAVI lost to the eco round. ua Natus Vincere never managed to get a lot of points in defense, and our guys lost the first half with the score 4 : 11.

To increase the chance of a comeback for the attack side, it was desirable for ua NAVI to win either the pistol round or force buy. Our players did not succeed in this task. Thus, kz Syman had a good opportunity to finish the game in the coming rounds. The kz Syman players took this chance in cold blood and beat ua Natus Vincere on Overpass — 16 : 4.
