Natus Vincere took home the StarSeries & i-League Season 7 trophy Sunday, taking down fnatic in a convincing 3-0 sweep.
The CS:GO tournament, which began on March 30, started inauspiciously for the Ukrainian powerhouse. Natus Vincere lost its opening match against ViCi Gaming, but quickly recollected itself to take its next three matches in the group stages. It left BIG, Ninjas in Pyjamas and NRG Esports in its wake.
Once in playoffs, Na'Vi started its run by taking out last year's winner ENCE in a 2-1 set. It went on to defeat Renegades 2-1 to meet the swedes of fnatic in the Grand Final.
While the fnatic maps were all close, Na`Vi had firm control and took the series with confidence.
The win nets Na`Vi $250,000 and its second StarSeries & i-League championship, having lifted the trophy previously last year in Season 5. The star player Oleksandr "s1mple" Kostyliev also earned the tournament's MVP, rounding out a successful run for the team.
