Natus Vincere are eliminated from season two of the Eleague after defeats to SK Gaming, with SK Gaming and Astralis each grabbing a prestigious place in the top eight instead.
Despite losing to SK Gaming in their first game, Natus Vincere quickly bounced back and gained some confidence by beating Alternate aTTaX, however, they then had to face SK Gaming again in the final game to see who would join Astralis, who had already qualified.
They put up a good fight, but SK Gaming, with a remarkable performance from Marcelo "coldzera" David, proved too strong for them, and Mousesports, FaZe Clan, Virtus Pro and Ninjas in Pyjamas will now welcome SK Gaming and Astralis into the top eight.
This Friday and Saturday will see Group D kick off, with Fnatic, Team Dignitas, Optic Gaming and Team EnVyUs all competing for those final two spots. Which two will progress from Group D?
