The first day of IEM Katowice 2016 continued with

mousesports picking up two games against
NiP and
TheMongolz and with
Luminosity defeating
Natus Vincere.

Natus Vincere went up against Luminosity on de_mirage and secured the pistol round on the T-side. The eco win of the Brazilians started a four round streak for them. With Fernando "fer" Alvarenga's strong showing, they finished the half 9-6 in front and gained an advantage.

Gabriel "FalleN" Toledo & company capitalized on this advantage and grabbed the pistol round. Alvarenga once again stepped up to get a monster quad-kill and earned his team the match point. They didn't struggle to close it out and finished it 16-11. With this result Natus Vincere lost both of their matches to kick off the tournament.

mousesports faced NiP in their opening match and secured it 16-8 on de_mirage. Johannes "nex" Maget and Nikola "NiKo" Kovač combined for 35 kills in 24 rounds as Jacob "pyth" Mourujärvi struggled, posting only a 7-21 K-D. Christopher "GeT_RiGhT" Alesund and Patrik "f0rest" Lindberg's efforts were not enough to handle mouz and the Swedes started with a loss.

After winning their first one against NiP, mousesports played against TheMongolz on de_dust2. Starting on the CT-side, Kovač & co. played a really agressive brand of CS against the Mongolians and finished the half in front with a 10-5 score. They only gave away two more rounds and Kovač's +21 plus/minus and 31-10 K-D performance was enough to get his team their second win with a 16-7 score.

Next up, fnatic goes up against Luminosity as NiP takes on TheMongolz in Katowice. You can check the standings here.
