NAVI Junior became the champions of the European Pro League 17: Division 1 with Dota 2, defeating MOUZ in the grand final. For Natus Vincere's youth squad, this is the first championship in the tournament, if one does not take into account the first places in the regional qualifiers for the tournaments.

The decisive meeting ended with a score of 3:1, and it is worth noting that MOUZ is the only team that was able to win at least one map in NAVI Junior. First, they did it in the semi-finals of the upper grid (score 2:1), and then in the grand final. Other meetings, including the group stage, were "dry" for NAVI Junior.

The dominance of the Ukrainian team was noticeable on all maps of the grand final. Only on the third map was MOUZ able to make a comeback and win. However, on all other cards there was a tangible advantage of NAVI Junior, sometimes reaching more than 30 thousand farm advantage.

NAVI Junior championship team:

  • Taras "gotthejuice" Linnikov

  • Artem "Niku" Bachkur

  • Yuriy "pma" Prots

  • Tamir "Daze" Tokpanov

  • Stanislav "Riddys" Mitroshkin

  • Ivan "Artstyle" Antonov (coach) - made with love.
