A stunning Sunday performance saw Natus Vincere claim all three maps on Erangel and one on Miramar to leap ten places to second in the overall PCS2 Europe Group Stage standings — sealing a spot in the Grand Finals.

Natus Vincere win four-in-a-row in PCS2 Europe Group Stage

An absolutely monster performance from Natus Vincere saw them rocket up the leaderboard on the final day of the PUBG Continental Series 2 Group Stage. 

The three-week-long Group Stage saw Europe's best teams battling for a spot in the $200,000 Grand Final, and Na'Vi timed their run to perfection to emphatically seal their spot in style.

FaZe stormed to a 16-kill first game win on Miramar, ending in a tense battle with themselves and Liquid as the last two standing. With Ivan "ubah" Kapustin looking hungry and on fire, the 26-point result rocketed them up the leaderboard, setting the tone for the rest of the day. 

 

Etiget Esports then took a much-needed chicken dinner in the second Miramar match, to keep them in contention for a Grand Final spot. 

Then, it was time for Na'Vi to shine. The final Miramar map saw them coast to a win with all four members still alive, before the action turned to Erangel. 

A Military Base war erupted as the last four teams standing just so happened to be the top four — FaZe Clan, Northern Lights, Team Liquid and Natus Vincere — and while it looked like FaZe would clean up in passing the ten-kill mark, the CIS side had other ideas and earned their second win in succession.

With Na'Vi hungry for more, they annihilated Liquid twice on the way to 11-kill and 13-kill wins, ending the day with a monstrous 55 kills and a stunning 106-point haul in total.
