However, the French were quick to reply with an assuring win of 6-16 on Inferno. The third match was on Nuke, where Na’Vi came on top with a score of 16-11, but Vitality didn't give up and took the fourth match on Overpass 7-16 in their favor. The last and deciding match on Mirage went Na’Vi’s way, where they defeated Vitality in a 16-14 close fight.
What Does The Win Mean For Na’Vi & Vitality?
