The majestic Barclays Center indoor arena, home of the NBA franchise Brooklyn Nets, staged last week the ESL One New York event, where eight of the best teams on the planet – including our own – battled it out for their share of a $250,000 prize pool.
With Oleksandr “s1mple” Kostyliev in stunning form, Natus Vincere won the event without losing a single match, cruising to a 3-0 record in the Swiss round before beating Team Liquid and Virtus.pro in the playoffs, both by 2-1 scorelines. This is the first international title for Na`Vi since picking up s1mple as a replacement for Danylo “Zeus” Teslenko, in the summer.
As always, we picked out the most interesting stats and facts from this fantastic tournament, which you can find in the infographic below:
