Best-Of-Three Matches: Who Advanced to Champion Stage?

On the third day of the BLAST.tv Paris Major 2023, we witnessed thrilling matches. Six teams competed for the Champions Status, but only three secured their spots in the upcoming BLAST.tv Paris Major 2023: Champions Stage. All matches on the third day were played in a best-of-three series.

Now, let’s look at the matches from day three and see how everything unfolded.

  • Monte removed Inferno
  • Natus Vincere removed Vertigo
  • Monte picked Anubis
  • Natus Vincere picked Nuke
  • Natus Vincere removed Mirage
  • Monte removed Overpass

Monte started the game as Counter-Terrorists on the first map and performed well, ending the first half with a 10:5 score in their favor.

Before the second map, most analysts predicted that Monte wouldn’t be able to defeat NAVI with a 2:0 score because Nuke is NAVI’s signature map. However, what unfolded on the second map was truly impressive. Playing on the CT side, Monte completely dominated their opponents. They won an incredible ten rounds in a row and finished the first half with a commanding lead of 13:2.

Despite the NAVI team’s efforts, including using all their timeouts and attempting different strategies, they couldn’t turn the tide. Ultimately, Monte emerged as the clear victor with an impressive 16:2 score. Here is the full map!

Congratulations to Monte!
