After 11 days of exciting matches and clashes more than expected by fans of CS:GO, the DreamHack Masters Spring 2021 has come to an end, this time crowning a historic team as the best and distributing 0,000 USD in prizes. The final of this classic tournament saw two great teams clash for one more trophy to display, with Na'Vi reaching the final stage for the first time since their victory in the BLAST Premier Global Final 2020 and after defeating Heroic, champions of the ESL Pro League Season 13, by a score of 2-1.
While on the other side we had Gambit Esports, who were coming off a good moment by finishing as runners-up of the ESL Pro League and after beating G2 Esports in the semifinals with a 2-0, in addition to their most recent championship against Virtus.pro at the IEM Katowice 2021 that took place last February.
Na'Vi sweeps Gambit at DreamHack Masters Spring 2021
Heading into the start of the series, Gambit and Na'Vi banned Nuke and Vertigo from the map rotation, then left the final rotation with Overpass, Dust2, Train, Mirage, and finally Inferno.
Na'Vi started in a furious mood by taking the map chosen by Gambit (Overpass) very fast with a score of 16-7. This confidence of the "electronic" team seemed to hold up on the next Dust2 map, but it was much more fierce reaching the score of 16-12.
With a 2-0 going for it, Natus Vincere just needed to beat Gambit's squad on the next "Train" map. It all started favourably for Gambit with a 9-6 lead in the first half, Na'Vi on T's side was able to come back and finish the series with 16-12 and a 3-0 championship finish.
With this monumental victory against the Russian team, Na'Vi managed to conquer the top prize of $100,000 USD, in addition to 1,000 points for the ESL Pro Tour, and a second title as part of the race to complete the Intel Grand Slam.
As for Gambit Esports, they got away with $42,000 USD along with 750 points for the Pro Tour, while G2 Esports and Heroic ended up with $20,000 USD and 525 points each.
Finally, the MVP of the tournament was Aleksandr "s1mple" Kostyliev due to his important statistics in ratio of 1.41 and ADR with 90.8. His average kills per round was 0.91 and his damage per round was 0.58. Undoubtedly an important participation for the victory of the Ukrainian organization.
The next big stop in the CS:GO competitive calendar will come on 3rd June 2021, with the start of the IEM Season XVI Summer Major.
