Derke dominates Breeze

Methodical in their entries, the Vincere Natus managed to plant the Spike several times on Breeze, but were unable to make their mark.. In both A and B, their post-plant play was too weak to stand up to the ultra-rooted Fnatic. With seven successive victoriesThey ran away with the score and ended up winning. 13-6 without any real difficulties.

It has to be said that the Derke/Chronicle duo wreaked havocAnd Alfajer and Leo also put in some fine performances. Derke was even decisive in this game. Thanks to his Yoru, he took up a lot of space, linked duels brilliantly (3 First Kill for 0 First Death) and provided his team with a lot of information. In the end, he won no fewer than 25 eliminationsfor 13 deaths and, unsurprisingly, achieved the top rating (1.56).


ardiis takes Ascent by storm

On Ascent, Derke was also in the news when it survived alone against ardiis and suygetsu when he had already taken down the other three opponents. However, the real star of this second confrontation is indeed ardiis ! The Duelist made a major contribution to his team's success in Attack, stringing together clutchs and multikills, and finished top of the scoreboard with a rating of 1.45 and an ACS of around 280.

Overall, Natus Vincere played better than on the previous mapAt the changeover, she was leading by six points. The defence was a little tougher, but ANGE1 and her mates came through it all and won. 13-9.
