A sweet victory for NaVi. ESL One

Natus Vincere took home the top prize at the Rainbow Six Siege Pro League Season 10 Finals. The victory is all the sweeter for NaVi as this is their first Pro League Season win. This win gives NaVi a large share of the $628,000 prize pool.

The tournament featured eight of the world's best teams, two from each region. For Europe it was NaVi along with Giants Gaming while North America had SarkZero Esports and Team Reciprocity. Meanwhile, latin America had Ninjas in Pyjamas and FaZe Clan. Finally, Asia Pacific was represented by Aerowolf and Wildcard Gaming.

For Navi, the team's first match was against Wilcard. On the first map, which was Kafe Dostoyevsky, NaVi was unable to find an answer to Wildcard. On the Coastline map, NaVi dominated their opponents, giving them only one victory. In the third and final map, NaVi took the lead after the first round with a score of 6-2. Wildcard did what it could to beat NaVi, but fell short ending the game at 8-7 in favor of NaVi.

Up next for NaVi was Team Reciprocity. Reciprocity won the first map in a close fight. On the Villa map it was all NaVi as Reciprocity was only able to score one victory. The final map was Clubhouse, and it was a close one fight. NaVi jumped ahead with a 4-2 lead at the end of round one. It was fortunate, as Reciprocity managed a tie by round two at 3-3.

This led to a championship match against U.S. team DarkZero. What was interesting with this matchup was that both teams were at the top of their respective regions, but had yet to win a Pro League Championship.

DarkZero started with a victory to get a 1-0 start. However, NaVi would take the second game while also getting the third game for a 2-1 lead. DarkZero fought back to bring it to 2-2. The round ended with the score tied at 3-3. During the second round, NaVi surprised DarkZero and won the first three rounds. DarkZero did eventually get a victory, but ultimately the match went to NaVi at 7-4.

Map two was Coastline and like the first map, both teams were feeling each other out, eventually getting a 1-1 score. This later changed to a 2-2 score. However, NaVi made it 3-2 before ending the round with a 4-2 score.

DarkZero knew how important this map was and got the first victory in the next set. NaVi would push again to get it at 2-1, or total of 6-3. Finally, NaVi set up some bait for DarkZero, for which DarkZero promptly bit and give NaVi the victory. The map ended with a score of 7-3 and a sweep for Navi against DarkZero.

NaVi's win marks a change from tournaments that had either Empire or G2 finish at the top. The first tournament of next year is the Six Invational, and will be held in Montreal on February 14.
