ESL Pro League S12: Europe results
Natus Vincere, on the back of brilliant performances by, Oleksandr “s1mple” Kostyliev, Denis “electronic” Sharipov and more, only dropped one map in the group stage, and went on to dominate the upper bracket. Na’Vi went through mousesports with a 2-1 victory, followed by a 2-0 win over Complexity, and then knocked Heroic down to the lower bracket to claim their spot in the grand finals.
In the first round of the upper bracket, Danish squads Astralis and Heroic clashed, with the latter coming out on top. Astralis then went on a rampage in the lower bracket, beating down Team Spirit, Complexity and mousesports before once again facing their fellow countrymen in Heroic. However, this time Astralis took their revenge and beat Heroic in 2-0 to claim their place in the grand finals.
Na’Vi and Astralis faced each other in a best-of-five (with one map advantage to Na’Vi) grand finals. It was, without a doubt, one of the most exciting grand finals to date. On Na’Vi’s map pick, Dust II, they beat Astralis 16-12, effectively making their grand final map score 2-0. To stay alive in the tournament, Astralis had to win their map pick Nuke, and while the Danish team took the map 16-14, it was a close one.
On to the third map, Train, and the score was at 2-1 for Na’Vi. It was do or die for Astralis, and the Danish squad got off to a massive start. However, Na’Vi pulled back over 10 rounds to push it to overtime. In the end, after double overtime, Astralis finally pulled it back and won 22-19. In the final map, Overpass, Astralis managed to take their map pick 16-11, and became the champions of ESL Pro League Season 12: Europe.
