NAVI qualify for the quarterfinals of the ESL Pro League S18
Natus Vincere defeated FaZe in the final of the upper bracket of the ESL Pro League Season 18. On their own choice of Anubis, the team simply destroyed the opponent with a score of 16:4. Valeriy "b1t" Vakhovskiy received a very high score of 9.7, which played a major role in the Ukrainian receiving the MVP of the match award. On the second map, his performance was not as impressive, with a score of 6.5, but if we take all BO3s, b1t has an 8.1, far outstripping all competitors.
Also worth noting is Mihai "iM" Ivan, who, after a series of unsuccessful matches, finally showed a confident performance: a score of 6.5, 35-28 stats, eight multikills, and one 1x2 clutch win. This is his second best match in the NAVI roster after playing against BIG at BLAST Premier: Fall Groups 2023, where the player received a rating of 6.9.
Based on the results of Group C, NAVI qualified for the quarterfinals of the ESL Pro League Season 18. FaZe, despite the defeat, will start their journey in the next stage not from the first but from the second round. It is worth reminding that fnatic won the third place in the playoffs from this group, while 9z and 5yclone will compete for the fourth place.
