By |

Korea's Nuturn Gaming upset NA's second seed Version1 in a nail-biting 3 map series.

VCT Masters 2 Day 4 kicked off with Nuturn Gaming vs. Version1 going head to head against each other. The first map, Haven(V1's pick) was Version1's playground. The first half ended at 9-3 and the match ended at 13-3 scoreline. It seemed like Nuturn were scared of Version1 in the beginning but it was too late by the time they found their groove. The second map, Ascent was a completely different story. V1 was about to win the map as they won the first half at 7-5 but in the second half, it kinda seemed like they started throwing. Nuturn comeback and pushed the map to two overtimes. The map ended at 13-15 in Nuturn's favour.

Nuturn Gaming is a kind of team that start slow but finish strong and this is what they did in the third map- Split! The first half ended at an equal 6-6 but Nuturn pushed split to overtime too. The always positive V1 players seemed to be under a lot of pressure as many could tell by the player cameras. Nuturn Gaming eventually won the map and the series at 12-14.

Zellsis was the match MVP even though V1 lost. He had a 232 combat score and 59 kills to his name. Lakia was the team MVP for Nuturn Gaming with 205 combat score and 50 kills to his name.
