Na`Vi have made their way into the final following a 2-1 win over a resurgent Evil Geniuses side who tried everything they possibly could to dethrone the Ukrainian kings. A first map win for the Americans set them up for the perfect upset but they failed to capitalize when it came to the second map, de_train, going down without a whimper. In the end the eastern Europeans were too strong with both markeloff and starix on fire as they blew EG away on de_inferno.
In the other semi final it was mousesports - who had been gifted a second chance thanks to a three way tie in their group games - against up and coming Swedish side H2k, conquerers of the mighty SK Gaming in the first round of the elimination stage. After struggling in the groups, barely scraping their way into the final day's matches many felt mousesports would be heading home as soon as they came up against decent opposition. H2k were the perfect candidates to send them packing but it wasn't to be. A defiant mousesports decided to up their game and leave the Swedes trailing, eventually going down in two maps without putting up much of a fight.
The match between mouz and Na`Vi is set to go live any minute now and it will be a thriller as mousesports seem to be hitting top form at the right moment. Na`Vi will have to be firing on all cylinders if they are hoping to secure the first ever Arbalet Cup on American soil.
