Natus Vincere - Latest performance & results
Like Vitality, NAVI did not qualify for the DreamHack Winter, but played a great tournament at the IEM Beijing Haidian. In the final game the Russian organization had to admit defeat after a 2-0 lead. The disappointment about this defeat was certainly big, but the team had two weeks to work on their mistakes and return to BLAST with new found motivation.
All in all, however, NAVI was in impressive form, winning three of their last five games, including duels against G2 and Astralis. The final encounter with her Danish rival ended on overpass and inferno with a clear 2-0 success.
As usual, s1mple, who sticks to his calm and consistently good performances even in difficult phases with the team, is particularly convincing for NAVI. Between NAVI and Astralis the odds speak clearly for a victory of the Danes.
Astralis - Latest performance & results
Astralis has regained its old strength during the DreamHack after a difficult year with two health related absences. The performances against G2, FURIA and Liquid were dominant and brought out the true face of the Danish stars once again.
With his return as IGL, gla1ve once again shaped the playing style according to his wishes and showed once more why he became known as the "mastermind". The midround calls from the Danish IGL are incomparable and uniquely perfect.
While countless teams had big problems against the aggressive playing style of FURIA, gla1ve managed to counteract Nuke and Inferno perfectly and sent the Brazilians home without a chance. In the duel with NAVI, Astralis is the clear favorite in view of the odds.
