The EndPoint team sensationally outplayed NAVI with a score of 2:0 in the group stage of ESL Pro League Season 16.

The first match of the third gaming day started on the Ancient map, which became the choice of Endpoint. At the same time, the “hosts” showed a surprisingly fast start, having managed to get a slight advantage. Closer to the change of sides, the NAVI team joined the game, leveling the gap and getting close to the opponent — 8:7. However, only one team was present on the server in the second half, as the "Born to Win" could not come up with anything in the attack. As a result, Endpoint confidently took its own pick and took the lead in the series — 16:7.
Next, the teams moved to the Dust 2 map, which became the choice of NAVI. Once again, Endpoint showed a strong start, quickly seizing the initiative. At the same time, "Born to Win" could not figure out the opponent in any way, as a result of which they were content with only five rounds in attack - 10:5. After the side switch, the European team began to quickly increase its lead, making the favorite nervous. At some point, NAVI was close to turning the tide of the match and giving a comeback. But Endpoint players took advantage of their opponent's mistakes and put the squeeze on the second map, and at the same time got their first victory in the championship — 16:10.
