fnatic won the 2015 edition of DreamHack Summer after seeing off Natus Vincere 2-0 (16-9 on de_mirage and 16-14 on de_train).
DreamHack Summer 2015 saw almost a repeat of the previous edition’s grand final, but this time around with Na`Vi facing fnatic rather than Ninjas in Pyjamas in the title decider, which had $20,000 on the line.
Going into this match, fnatic knew that this was their title to lose, and the Swedish giants got off to a flying start by winning the first five rounds of the match, as Terrorist. A triple kill from Egor “flamie” Vasilyev while defending the A site then allowed Na`Vi to win their first round, but the CIS team’s comeback was short lived as a 1vs2 clutch from Jesper “JW” Wecksell put the Swedes back in the driving seat until the end of the half.
With a 4-11 deficit, Na`Vi knew they had a mountain to climb to turn this game around, but that did not stop them from trying. The first round did go their way, but they were pegged back in the first anti-eco round.
