FURIA - Latest performance & results
After a solid start to the year, which was successful despite the departure of HEN1 and the new signing of junior, the team had to accept two bitter defeats at the IEM Summer 2021 Qualifier. FURIA lost clearly against Movistar Riders and FaZe and did not qualify for the event. The Brazilians also failed to start the DreamHack Master successfully. In the first round duel with BIG, the team clearly lost on Vertigo and thus slipped into the lower-bracket.
With wins against paiN and Complexity, the team qualified for the lower-final and met Vitality. The French top team, which showed great performances last year, had to admit defeat against FURIA with 2:0. The Brazilians were thus able to end their negative streak at DreamHack Masters Spring, but suffered a defeat at Spring Sweet Spring against forZe two days ago. FURIA is the relatively clear underdog against NAVI given the odds.
Natus Vincere - Latest performance & results
NAVI has been playing at the absolute top of the world for years and is currently in fourth place of the EsportFire World Ranking. However, the last two tournament appearances at the ESL Pro League and the IEM Katowice 2021 were not very satisfying for the CIS giant. Especially the performances at Pro League were rather mixed and defeats against FURIA, Gambit and Complexity finally sealed the elimination and the 9-12th place.
At the DreamHack Masters, NAVI will compete for the first time with B1T as the fixed fifth player. Flamie had to leave the team for the time being with regard to the RMR events. At the DreamHack Masters Spring NAVI won against mousesports and Virtus.Pro, but was defeated in the upper-bracket final by Gambit. The winner of this duel will meet Heroic in the semifinals.
