S1mple breaks records and G2 in 3-0 grand finals victory at IEM Cologne

Natus Vincere repeated history against G2 Esports in the IEM Cologne grand finals today, sweeping the French/Bosnian side 3-0 on the shoulders of an unbelievable tournament from s1mple. The Na’Vi CS:GO superstar notched an unbelievable 1.52 player rating across the entire tournament, one of his highest ever.

Na’Vi capitalized on their first map pick advantage and took map one on Dust2. Early on, the matchup looked like a quick and easy affair for Na’Vi after winning the first five rounds on their T-side, but G2 woke up by taking seven of the next nine rounds and made it a much more manageable 8-7 at half-time. Just winning seven CT rounds against Na’Vi isn’t enough, however, and s1mple treated fans to another show. He finished with 30 kills and only half as many deaths, capped off with a gorgeous ace, his fourth of the tournament. No player has ever produced four aces at a single major event until now.
