In Game 2, it was just ownage by Natus Vincere getting multiple team wipes and finally ending things before the 30th minute mark to take game 2 and the series to advance into the grand finals.
Na`Vi decided to abandon the top lane and let Lifestealer farm in their jungle, while Mouz opted to go for a support Alchemist to hopefully give them two hard carries in case the game goes into late game.

Na`Vi felt confident, they pushed the middle lane and took down the tier-2 tower and got a kill on few more heroes of Mouz that gave Na`Vi the opening to destroy the tier-3 tower. After that, Na`Vi did not want to force anything and instead decided to rotate to the top lane and destroyed the tier-2 tower.

A huge team fight would occur during that where Magnus got a great Reverse Polarity on Na`Vi but again the follow up nukes were not enough that kept Na`Vi alive and lead to four deaths on the side of Mouz and the bottom barracks. Na`Vi then rotated in the top lane to destroy the tier-3 tower after killing a few more heroes of Mouz who desperately tried to defend it.
In the 38th minute, Na`Vi pushed the top lane but before taking down the barracks, they engaged on Mouz and lead to a team wipe and "GG" call from Mouz later on.
In this game, Na`Vi went for a two hard carry on their lineup and opted to run Clinkz in the tri-lane instead of the juggernaut, while Mouz went for a more clash oriented lineup.
There was not much action in the early minutes as both teams just wanted to get decent farms and experience in their respective lanes.
