Natus Vincere win big in the finals of ESL One Cologne, stomping out BIG with a scoreline of 3-1. That was a huge relief for a team who had been under pressure for their performance in several other tournaments. With a major win in their achievements, they can finally leave their ghosts behind.
ESL One Cologne seemed like a roller coaster of emotions for the viewers, as fan favorites like Astralis and FaZe do not live up to their expectations. BIG stepped up their game big time (pun intended), but that was not enough for Danylo ‘Zeus’ Teslenko and his team.
The scorelines for the finals were 16-10 on Overpass, 11-16 on Dust2, 16-10 on Train, and 16-8 on Inferno.
“We want to win tournaments that have all of the best teams. That’s our little goal.” were Oleksandr “s1mple” Kostyliev’s words after Natus Vincere’s victory in the StarSeries i-League Season 5 back in April. The team lived up to his expectations.
