The series started on the Dust 2 map, where there was no fight. And the reason for this was a confident game from NAVI, which allowed the team to defeat the Poles at their peak - 16:1.
However, the most interesting thing happened on Mirage, where NAVI first made a comeback, pulling the map into overtime. But few could have imagined that the teams would be so equal that they would play seven series of overtime at once, playing 71 rounds.
As a result, NAVI managed to pull out a victory over AGO with a score of 37:34, thereby earning the first points in the ESL Pro League Season 15. The next meeting of the "Born to Win" will take place tomorrow - the team will play with Evil Geniuses.
Note that the Mirage map between NAVI and AGO became the fourth in terms of the number of rounds played in the history of the discipline. Only Gunrunners and eSuba (72), DenDD and PixelFire (79), as well as XENEX and exceL (88) played more rounds.
ESL Pro League Season 15 runs from March 9 to April 10 in Dusseldorf. 24 teams are fighting for a prize pool of $823,000, as well as a ticket to the BLAST World Final 2022, which will go to the winner.
