StarSeries Season 4: against SK Gaming

CS2 / News / 20 February 2018 — 09:49

18:00 Kyiv time, a best of 3 format!

Today ua NAVI.GG.BET will have their second attempt at making the playoffs of StarSeries Season 4, having to overpower br SK Gaming to do that. The game is scheduled for 18:00 Kyiv time and will be played as a bo3 series. 

While NAVI suffered their first defeat yesterday, falling to eu FaZe Clan (1-2), SK Gaming got their loss in the first round, as they were bested by mousesports (1-2). Despite such a rocky start, they showed convincing performance in the ensuing rounds and secured two confident wins over kr MVP (2-0) and us Cloud9 (2-0). The last time NAVI and SK met at IEM Katowice 2017, we celebrated a 16-12 win on de_overpass. 

As for the maps, the teams will most likely remove  de_cache (ua NAVI) and de_nuke (br SK), as those are the maps which they don't normally play. Then, we think our boys will pick de_inferno, while SK will settle on de_cbble, where they have had great showings over the past three months, with a 9W-1L record. The last round will see SK take out de_train, and our boys will have to choose between de_mirage and de_overpass, of which we think they will pick the latter. Hopefully, Natus Vincere will show their best game today to proceed to the playoffs! #gonavi
