Navi are victorious at ESL Pro League Season 14 and win Intel Grand Slam Season 3
A big day for the CS:GO team of Natus Vincere, as they went on to win ESL Pro League Season 14 and secured the Intel Grand Slam.
In the final series of the tournament Natus Vincere had to go up against a strong Team Vitality, which has recently found its best form again. Things went down to the wire, as both teams went on to win their map picks, culminating in a best-of-five thriller on Mirage, which Natus Vincere eventually clutched out with a 16-14 scoreline. Navi had a great tournament overall, topping Group C and routing ENCE and Heroic on the way to the Grand Final.
CONGRATULATIONS TO @natusvincere!
