Vikin.gg falls down to the lower brackets where they will face Team Liquid.

Na'Vi showcased one of the most dominant performances in the playoffs of ESL One Germany 2020 as they defeated Vikin.gg 2-0. With this comprehensive series win, Na'Vi moves to the Upper Bracket Finals where they will face an all charged up squad of mudgolems who have defied the odds to emerge triumphant against the European powerhouse, Team Secret.

V-Tune Is the Star of Na'Vi vs Vikin.gg

Na'Vi outplayed Vikin.gg in all the departments as the latter looked lacklustre on the day. Both the teams had pulled off upsets in Round 1 of the Upper Bracket as Na'Vi beat OG while Viking.gg defeated Alliance. So, the matchup was equally poised owing to their recent performances but Na'Vi was just too good.

Game 1 witnessed Vikin.gg pick comfort heroes for all their players while Na'Vi seemed to go all-in for a 4-protect-1 strategy with V-Tune on Phantom Assassin. While the laning phase went equally good for both sides, Na’Vi seemed to push the accelerator as soon as V-Tune picked up the BKB. Vikin.gg did not hunt for PA in the earlier stages which allowed her to grow fatter and stronger. Vikin.gg resisted and put up a strong fight but V-Tune ended the map with a Rampage and a KDA of 20-0-6.

In Game 2, Vikin.gg looked out of sorts as a result of the first game. Their draft seemed to be very inferior to that of Na'Vi as they convincingly lost all their three lanes. Shad was able to extract farm from the jungle on his Lifestrealer but all of Na'Vi’s cores were too strong for Vikin.gg to handle. Vikin.gg made some desperate attempts to kill V-Tune on the Drow Ranger but Vengeful Spirit always managed to swap her out of deadly situations. One more time, V-tune went unkillable with a KDA of 16-0-8 as the game ended in just 27 minutes. 

The ex-FlyToMoon roster has significantly enhanced their skills and performances since they were picked up by the Na'Vi organization for a trial phase on September 22. As it was being speculated that they may get signed permanently by the club if they reach the playoffs, now with a top 3 finish secured, the official announcement by the Ukrainian organization is imminent.

Vikin.gg, on the other hand, falls down to the lower brackets where they will face Team Liquid. Vikin.gg looked rusty in their series against Na'Vi but overall being relatively newer, they have improved and looked stronger with every passing game. They will want to take this loss in their stride and look to come back stronger against Liquid.
