Natus Vincere triumph in the first season of Dreamz Media's CS:GO Champions League, winning the grand final over dignitas 3-0 (21-15 on de_mirage and 16-9 on de_train with a one map advantage).
Dreamz Media's CS:GO Champions League was
first announced far back in February and promised a $30,000 online league for some of Europe's best teams.
Evidently, the explosive growth of tournaments in the CS:GO scene delayed the intended completion of the tournament (late April) for an extensive period of time, however
the tournament did enter the playoff phase towards the end of May.
With Na`Vi-rival and one of the tournament favourites, Virtus.pro, falling in
the upper bracket semi-final to dignitas 2-0, and then being eliminated by HellRaisers 2-1 in the lower bracket, Natus Vincere found themselves with a clearer path to a first place finish.
The Russo-Slovakian-Ukrainian outfit cooly dispatched of the Danish dignitas team in
the upper bracket final.
When dignitas returned after having defeated HellRaisers in the
consolidation final, Na`Vi once again triumped with a 3-0 scoreline (with a one map advantage), although this time the first map of de_mirage went into a MR5 overtime scenario.
