Na’Vi Reveals Details Of The Showmatch

The showmatch that everyone is now eagerly looking forward to was announced by Na’Vi just a few days back on 20th July. Though this was something that the community had demanded a few months back, everyone was caught by surprise as their requests came to fruition out of the blue.

This is not the first time that the Na’Vi CS 1.6 roster will be coming together to play in a showmatch since disbanding in 2013. In fact, they had all assembled just a few months back to defeat a Ukrainian stream team in another showmatch.

The two Na’Vi lineups will be facing each other on both CS 1.6 and CS:GO in two best-of-three series. ‘Train’ and ‘Inferno’ will be the two common maps between both the CS 1.6 and CS:GO matchups while the decider maps for the two will be Tuscan and Dust 2, respectively.

Format and Maps for the showmatchNot only the maps but the schedule of the showmatch has also been announced by Maincast. The pre-game will begin on 15:45, followed by the CS 1.6 series at 16:00, CS:GO at 19:00, and post-game at 22:30.
Schedule of the showmatchNote: The time mentioned above is in EEST (Eastern European Summer Time).

The showmatch which is being touted as “Zoomers Vs Boomers” has been predicted to break a few records based on the fact that the last showmatch had managed to gather a viewership of around 125,000 concurrent viewers at one point of time, due to which after a long time CS viewership on Twitch had overtaken that of CS:GO.

Na’Vi is really enjoying a lot of attention as of late and this showmatch announcement only adds to its popularity. The esports organization has already been listed as the most-viewed CS:GO team on Liquipedia in the first half of 2020, though the total number of profile views were not made public knowledge by the website this information is enough to gauge the popularity of the organizations CS:GO division.

This achievement can in part be attributed to their star player Oleksandr “s1mple” Kostyliev who was the most searched CS:GO player on Liquipedia for the first half of the year. Also, the showmatch announcement had nothing to do with it cause the data for the result was only counted till 30th June.
