Natus Vincere and ENCE will face each other in Group D of the DreamHack Masters Spring 2020 Online: Europe. The DreamHack Masters Spring 2020: Europe is a sixteen team online CS:GO tournament. The event has a prize pool of $160,000 for the European segment. With the best CS:GO teams in the region, the European section of the tournament is bound to throw up some exciting possibilities and plays for CS:GO viewers.
The sixteen teams are divided into four groups of four teams each. The teams will play best-of-three matches against each other and the group’s winners will move to the upper bracket of the playoffs. The second and third-placed teams in each group move to the lower bracket of the tournament. The playoffs feature a double elimination bracket with the grand finals being a best-of-five affair.
The world’s second-best CS:GO team will face ENCE in its group stage match for the DreamHack Masters Spring Online: 2020 European tournament. However, Na’Vi has not had the best performance in recent weeks as they have to adapt to online play. Their ESL One: Road to Rio CIS was cut short by consecutive losses to local rivals Syman Gaming and Hard Legion. The nature of their loss also suggests problems with the players’ performance and form.
However, Na’Vi has a significant advantage over their opponents in this match. The team has a much higher skill ceiling and a wide map pool. With S1mple and Electronic helping Na’Vi with their firepower, the CIS team should not have any troubles in dealing with ENCE.
ENCE’s roster moves of 2019 are still confusing to many of its CS:GO fans. However, the team’s performance in recent weeks has seen slight improvements, but not as much as their fans could hope for. The team still has a long way to go to reach Na’Vi’s level. The team’s performance in recent weeks provides some hope, however, there is a very small chance of them pulling off an upset in their group stage match against Na’Vi.
