It was a good day at the office for Natus Vincere, who wrapped up a productive day by beating Ninjas in Pyjamas in the Blast Pro Series in Copenhagen this weekend, earning themselves a cool $125K in the process. Don't cry for runners-up NiP, though, as they were awarded $50K for finishing second ahead of third place Astralis in this latest Counter-Strike event.
The victory marked the final note of what will have been a pleasing day's competition for Na'Vi, who pushed aside the likes of Astralis and MiBR on their way to recording their second win of the day over Ninjas in Pyjamas. In fact, the only blemish on their scoresheet was a defeat at the hands of FaZe in the six-team round robin.
Denis "electronic" Sharipov turned on the style for the winning team, who emerged as the best player in the Na'Vi lineup during the final, with his team pushing through for 16-12 victory in what turned out to be a pulsating battle. Astralis came in third, and took the opportunity to pick Cloud9 as their opponents in the Pro Standoff, but Cloud9 was able to win that game 2-3.
