Na`Vi captured its first Intel Grand Slam victory in the "Cathedral of Counter-Strike" in a grueling back-and-forth final against the underdog German team. After suffering a tough 16-14 loss to G2 Esports to kick off the event, Na`Vi defeated Gambit Esports, Cloud9, ENCE, Fnatic, Astralis and BIG to win the event.
This is Na`Vi's second premier CS:GO championship in as many months after taking home StarSeries Season 5 in June, also capturing the CS:GO Asia Championship.
