In the first Semi-Final of the day, Natus Vincere
took on Envy
. Once again, the fate of Natus Vincere was held strong on the shoulders of Oleksandr "s1mple" Kostyliev
. Over the two maps it took to defeat the French side, he ended with a +30 score, with nobody even close to his level on the server.
The second Semi-Final had Gambit Esports
go toe to toe with Mousesports
. Many expected Gambit to win, with strong performances from Abay "HObbit" Khassenov
especially earlier in the tournament. However, it was Mousesports who came out on top, lead by an impressive performance over two maps from Robin "ropz" Kool
posting 120 ADR and a 1.96 rating.
The Grand Final then appeared to rest on one thing. Which team would have their superstar turn up over the other. A dominating first map for Natus Vincere saw s1mple once again take the server by storm, with the team taking a straight forward 16-4 scoreline. The second map saw Mousesports take a 9-3 advantage early in the first half, before Natus Vincere fought back to end the half 9-6 giving themselves a foothold in the map. The second half only saw the eventual winners drop two more rounds, before securing a 11-16 win. Over the two maps, it was Denis "electronic" Sharipov
who topped the scoreboards with a +25 score, closely followed by the MVP of the tournament s1mple at +21.
