The last final of BLAST Premier's Gauntlet between Natus Vincere and Team Vitality has just finished, where NAVI wins the game by 2-0 and pushes Team Vitality to the Last Chance Match bracket where Team Vitality will face G2 Esports again to qualify for the BLAST Premier's main event.
The match was absolutely a banger for both sides even though the Ukrainians won it by 2-0 but Vitality was not far from winning either. Apart from that, this was the first match of s1mple in fall groups 2022 and it looked like he was not in the form in the beginning but as the match progresses, the AWP god started getting warmed up and fantastically wins the game. For context, s1mple didn't played the fall groups 2022 except this final due to some reasons and he was replaced by the NAVI Junior's player headtr1ck for the role AWPer.
One of the most memorable moments in the match is when s1mple clutches the round in a 1v3 situation on Mirage in a post-plant situation. Even though he was out of his form but still manages to secure the MVP award.
