  • Legendary Na'Vi CS 1.6 lineup from 2010 will faceoff against the current Na'Vi lineup in an upcoming showmatch.
  • The community is super hyped to finally witness a faceoff between markeloff and s1mple.
  • Complete details about the showmatch will be announced soon.

For those who don’t believe in miracles might start to do so as the legendary Na’Vi 1.6 lineup from 2010 will be facing off against the current Na’Vi lineup in a CS:GO showmatch on 1st August at 18:30 (IST). The match which is being touted as ‘Zoomers vs Boomers’ by the organization themselves is being received by the community with utmost enthusiasm and celebration.

It was something that the community had eagerly demanded a few months back when the Na’Vi 1.6 lineup had come together for the first time to play a showmatch since their separation in 2013. Everyone at the time had wanted the current Na’Vi team to play against the most successful lineup that the organization had ever fielded.

It seems that the community’s request had not gone unnoticed after all as out of the blue Na’Vi has caught everyone by surprise with this huge announcement. We finally get to see Oleksandr “s1mple” Kostyliev go up against Yegor “markeloff” Markelov.

That particular showmatch had gathered a viewership of around 125,000 concurrent viewers on Twitch. It was after a long time that the CS viewership on Twitch had overtaken that of CS:GO and by the looks of it this show match might be on the horizon of breaking a few records as well.
