Analyst Jacob Pimp Vinneche called the victory of Natus Vincere at IEM Katowice 2020 CS: GO a coincidence. On Twitter, he noted that further results of the team in 2020 indicate this.
Vinneche added that this is his personal position and it may turn out to be wrong. According to him, Natus Vincere performed well in the playoffs of the tournament, and then the team’s results went into decline.
Pimp: “Perhaps this statement will seem very controversial to someone, but, in my opinion, judging by the results of the team in 2020, the victory of Natus Vincere at IEM Katowice is an accident. The squad showed itself well in the group stage of the tournament, not great, but still. And after that incredible performance in the playoffs, everything was not so rosy. I hope I’m wrong.
I love Counter-Strike and respect good players. But after the finals of the Polish tournament, NAVI looked very, very weak. Of course, there are many factors that could cause a recession, for example, the transition of competitions to online, but the fact remains. ”
IEM Katowice 2020 was held from February 24 to March 1 in Poland and was the last championship, the bulk of which was held on the LAN. Natus Vincere took third place in the group, and in the playoffs did not concede a single card in three matches. In the grand finals, the team beat G2 Esports with a score of 3: 0.
