The Grand Final between Natus Vincere and Vitality showcased just how dangerous the NaVi beast can be once unleashed. A great performance from young "b1t" and "s1mple" playing up to his name meant a tough defeat for the French and Danish roster of Vitality. However, despite a long stint of bumpy performances from the star-studded roster of Vitality, they made it to the Grand Final after a phenomenal victory against G2 in the Semi-finals.
We spoke with the passionate IGL of Vitality "apEX" and he put some words on their brawl against an in-form Natus Vincere opponent:
"They were much better than us. Nothing much to say, they were just the way better team today. We tried, it wasn't our day, but when you play such a NaVi, if you have a day off you get stomped and that's what happened."
When asked if there is anything to build upon after such a tough defeat, the passionate French IGL was positive about the future of Vitality:
"When you get stomped like that, I'm not gonna lie they were just much better so I'm not even mad or whatever. We made a lot of progress this tournament... I will only remember the results we made and not the final."
All in all a great performance from Vitality at BLAST Premier Spring Final 2022 concluded with a tough loss, but a loss that was difficult to do anything about if you ask "apEX". When playing against a NaVi on that kind of level there are no teams that can keep up:
"They played pretty fast and pretty good individually. They were giving us so many headshots and they were just the better team no matter what... I they hit that many headshots I don't think any team can counter them, because that was crazy."
