Natus Vincere and Nemiga will face each other in the upper bracket Round 1 of the WePlay! Clutch Island CS:GO tournament. This event is a Regional Major Ranking event and rewards the top teams with RMR points. Teams with the highest RMR points will secure an invitation to the ESL One Rio Major in November.
The 30th ranked Nemiga reached the upper bracket finals after a dominating performance in group A. Nemiga defeated teams like Winstrike and Team Spirit in the group stage to secure this faceoff against Natus Vincere. Nemiga’s map pool is impressive, the team’s performance on maps like Inferno, Nuke, Overpass and Vertigo has allowed them to have a strong T side. They can control the enemy team’s economy, often crippling the economy beyond redemption.
Meanwhile, the 4th best team in the world, Natus Vincere, has some of the best players on its CS:GO roster. Players like S1mple and electronic are at the top of the food chain when it comes to raw firepower. However, Na’Vi’s playstyle has an emphasis on team-based strategic gameplay.
Picking Na’Vi to win this match is an easy decision. The team is in another league compared to Nemiga. They will not have any problems sweeping this series.
