Na’Vi, Alliance win ESL One Germany openers

Natus Vincere, Alliance and Yellow Submarine all recorded 2-0 sweeps Wednesday in their opening matches at the online ESL One Germany tournament.

Na’Vi defeated Cyber Legacy, Alliance beat EXTREMUM, and Yellow Submarine sank Team Nigma.

The $400,000 Dota 2 event features 16 teams from Europe and the Commonwealth of Independent States. It runs through Nov. 1, with the winner earning $150,000.

The teams will compete in a Swiss group stage with five rounds of best-of-three matches. Teams never play the same opponent twice. Three victories are needed to secure a spot in the eight-team playoffs.

The playoff rounds will be contested in a best-of-three, double-elimination format. The grand final is a best-of-five encounter.

Na’Vi scored a 39-minute win on green and a 32-minute win on red. Alliance won in 33 and 40 minutes, both on red. Yellow Submarine won twice on green, in 56 minutes and 45 minutes.

Round 2 begins Friday.
