Natus Vincere ended the final in relatively comfortable fashion over SoloMid 2-0, winning $56,250 and yet another title for Europe’s Counter-Strike teams.
All four of the day one matchups pitted Europe against the Americas, and only Team Liquid were able to take a victory away from the Europeans. Sadly for the American side, their run ended at the semi-final stage, when they lost 2-0 to eventual winners Na`Vi.
During the final day however, chatter online hinted of issues within the SoloMid camp. The team’s agent, Frederik Byskov, who has left his position with the TSM organization, stated that the team may well be competing under a new banner soon. The revelation was followed by a public exchange between Byskov and SoloMid owner Andy “Reginald” Dih.
In the final, Na’Vi looked assured of victory. Ladislav “GuardiaN” Kovács and Denis “seized” Kostin were on top form with 84 kills between them.
