Neswki: The round was won due to many errors of Na`Vi together with our successful actions. That led to the positive match outcome.
Was it hard to play against you principal opponents?
Lucique: In this new format all games are hard and it is not quite clear there, therefore we played as we can, sweated as we can, as always, against anybody.
Neskwi: We simply played our own game, difficulties were only in shotouts, because Na`Vi players are very skilled individually.
