In one of the semifinal matches of IEM Fall 2021 CIS, Natus Vincere and Virtus.Pro . Another victory of the "Born to Win"?
The best team in the world continues to confirm its leadership in the world ranking, winning one tournament after another and coping with each opponent. So far, IEM Fall 2021 CIS is developing perfectly for the "Born to Win", because they are the only ones in the CIS region who have won all five games. The victorious march allowed s1mple and the company to take first place in Group A with a difference of +22 rounds won and lost.
The "bears" had a harder time, but at the same time their path turned out to be more curious. The fact is that in group B, three teams had 12 points at once, and the new rules state that if three or more teams have an equal number of points, then they play each other in overtime, and to win, you need to pick up 4 rounds and break away from the opponent by at least two. Guys from Virtus.Pro We lost 0-4 to Gambit Esports, and then beat INDE IRAE 4-2, thanks to which we took second place and advanced to the playoffs.
At the group stage, Natus Vincere did not look too powerful, although they won in every meeting, but there is a suspicion that the economy of forces was planned. But in the playoffs, it's time to show the best game, with which the strongest team in the world should have no difficulties.
