Natus Vincere defeated Team Vitality 2-1 to win $225,000 and qualify for the BLAST Premier World Final 2021 in front of a huge live audience at the Royal Arena in Copenhagen, Denmark, on Sunday.
Natus Vincere followed their PGL Stockholm Major with a first place finish in the BLAST Premier Fall Final 2021. With a near perfect run through the upper bracket, the CIS squad have cemented themselves as the undisputed best squad in CS:GO. Natus Vincere lifted the trophy after defeating Vitality for the second time.
One of the all time greats and mainstay on the CIS squad, Aleksandr “s1mple” Kostyliev, ended the event as the tournament MVP. Post a 0.93 KPR, 76.4% KAST, and a 1.39 overall rating, Na’Vi were led to their second consecutive first place finish.
While Na’Vi dominated the competition, it was still one last chance for other teams to earn crucial points and make it to the World Final LAN in December. Those teams were Vitality, Team Liquid, and Astralis.
