Na’Vi get rid of MAD Lions from DreamHack Masters Spring Europe as s1mple had his best series of 2020|Dot Esports
The Ukrainian CS: GO star s1mple has showed as soon as again why he’s thought about one of the best gamers to ever touch the video game.
The 22-year old shattered MAD Lions’ gameplan today at DreamHack Masters Spring Europe’s lower bracket round three. S1mple led Natus Vincere in Mirage, the first map of the series, with 37 kills and only eight deaths. These numbers by themselves would already be outrageously good, but s1mple’s performance was much more excellent since he did it in just 21 rounds.
Na’Vi won Mirage 16-5, which was MAD Lions’ map choice. S1mple had just 10 kills fewer than the whole MAD Lions squad combined, ended up with a 2.77 ranking, and averaged 158.5 damage per round.
S1mple didn’t decrease whatsoever as the series relocated to Overpass. S1mple didn’t pull another godlike performance, but he still got 24 eliminates, simply one less than electronic, to assist Na’Vi defeat MAD Lions 16-7 and get rid of the Danes from DreamHack Masters Spring Europe.
The Ukrainian star, however, when again led in damage-per-round, averaging 105.6, meaning that he caused ample damage to frag one MAD Lions’ player per round.
This may be the efficiency that Na’Vi required to gather some momentum. The CIS powerhouse won IEM Katowice in February, the last huge LAN CS: GO tournament before the coronavirus pandemic forced tournament organizers to switch to online play.
Na’Vi got a top-four at ESL Pro League season 11 Europe in April and was shamefully removed in the early stages of ESL One: Road to Rio CIS, the very first Regional Major Ranking (RMR) competition for the ESL One Rio Major in November.
We’ll see if s1mple and Na’Vi can replicate today’s game in some sorts tomorrow against either FaZe Clan or NiP at 7am CT
