“2:0 against BIG. Good comeback on the second map! “
The match was played on Dust2 and Nuke. The first map was won by s1mple with a score of 16:11, and the second was brought in overtime, where they won with a final score of 19:17. The victory was the second for NAVI in the ESL Pro League group stage.
At the moment, NAVI and BIG, with two wins and losses, share the third line in group A. The first two places are shared by ENCE eSports and G2 Esports, which have not yet participated in the matches of the third round.
Natus Vincere player Egor flamie Vasiliev spoke about the use of the bug by coaches in official CS: GO matches. He tweeted that Valve should punish at least those teams that took advantage of the dishonest way in the RMR series tournaments.
“It would be strange if Valve did not punish teams that exploited the vulnerability in RMR tournaments, in particular Hard Legion – they abused the bug in all games!”
On August 31, ESL and DreamHack reported that the coaches of Hard Legion Esports, MIBR and Heroic were using a spectator bug in official matches. Tournament operators have banned mentors from their championships and disqualified teams from competitions where the vulnerability was abused.
All three teams used a bug at RMR tournaments. The Hard Legion and Heroic coaches did it on ESL One: Road to Rio, and MIBR on cs_summit 6. The teams lost their prize money for these championships, but kept the earned qualifying points for the ESL One Rio 2020 Major.
