fnatic win IEM Katowice 2016
Time: 2016-03-05 22:12
Game: Counter-Strike: Global Offensive

IEM Katowice ended today with fnatic being crowned champion at the Spodek Arena in Poland, where the Swedes were able to keep their win streak alive for the sixth consecutive event after winning three maps (de_overpass, 19-17, de_cache, 16-3, and de_inferno, 19-15) over Luminosity in the best-of-five series. 

Luminosity were off to a great start on the CT side of de_overpass, as the Brazilians were able to capitalize on the pistol round and follow it up winning six rounds in a row until fnatic were finally able to pick up their first.

A 1vs1 clutch in the eighth by Fernando "fer" Alvarenga gave Brazil the 7-1 advantage, putting fnatic on the back foot as their economic got reset. At 8-1, fnatic already called their first time out of the match to try and stop LG’s momentum. fnatic got a two man lead straight out of the timeout, but a triple by Epitacio "TACO" de Melo allowed a 1vs1 to be played between Gabriel "FalleN" Toledo and Robin "flusha" Rönnquist, which the former eventually won to keep fnatic under water. 

IEM Katowice’s very own big ears

LG kept the brick wall up, and chained rounds together all the way up to 11-1, losing the 13th to a forceful push onto A by the Swedish side. Luminosity stiffled the comeback dream quickly, though, closing the half at 12-3 with an impressive no-scope AWP shot by FalleN to clutch, defuse, and pocket the last round.

An ace clutch in the pistol round by Lincoln "fnx" Lau absolutely shattered fnatic, but only momentarily as the Swedes were able to rally together and win the eco with a pistols and armor buy. fnatic, having nothing to lose, went on the offensive in the following rounds neutralizing Luminosity completely. 

Not being able to close on de_overpass cost Luminosity dearly

Grinding rounds out, fnatic were able to bring the match back to a 13-8, but a perfect entry on A by the Brazilians got them the 14th and the light at the end of the tunnel. The Swedish side wasn’t giving up, though, and forced Luminosity into a tactical pause at 14-10. Five rounds later, fnatic had the match point, but in a last ditch effort Luminosity won their third round of the half to bring it to overtime thanks to a great play by TACO.

The same player gave his team the first round of the overtime with some pinpoint aim, breaking the 30 frag barrier on the first round of overtime. Both teams then traded rounds and ended the half 17-16.

After two rounds as terrorists, fnatic found themselves once again on the match point, 17-18, a point they would go on to bag the following round.

The second map played in Katowice was de_cache, and LG flew through the pistol round with TACO opening with a double and fer slicing through flusha like butter. fnatic had enough for a buy on the third round, which they went on to take after an A execute which caught Luminosity out of position. 

fnatic had perfect composure during the match

The Swedish side was then able to carry that momentum forward winning five straight rounds until Luminosity were able to put another one up on the board. fnatic were able to take the next two rounds, though, and increase their lead casting doubts on LG’s ability to stop fnatic on this map.

Rounds kept being racked up by fnatic, as none of LG’s adjustments in mid were able to garner them control, something which the Swedish team used to punish their adversaries time and time again closing the side 12-3. A 4on4 retake by fnatic on A gave them the first round of the half, catapulting them to a 16-3 victory. 

Luminosity bagged the pistol round once again, this time as CTs on de_inferno. A 1on3 clutch from pit by fnx allowed the Brazilian team to keep the momentum in the first gun round. After losing the following eco, fnatic weren’t quite ready to let the game slip away, though, and they were able to get on the board in sixth. Their attempts were rendered futile on the next round, however, as the Brazilian team retook the B site to force fnatic back into an eco, and putting themselves ahead 7-1.

dennis was crucial to fnatic’s comeback on de_inferno

LG locked the map down denied fnatic over and over again, giving up only two more rounds before the half. flusha was able to clutch a 1v2 after plan on B in the pistol round to keep fnatic’s hopes alive on the CT side and try to mimic the outcome from Overpass.

Luminosity was able to stop fnatic's momentum after four rounds, tallying their 13th, but weren’t able to follow it up, having their economy reset and fnatic starting to get back into the game with eight rounds of their own. 

Luminosity won a Tec 9 push on B to take the 14th round, but couldn't seem to string two rounds together despite fnatic having a complicated financial situation, and the Swedes were able to get themselves within two, at 14-12. 

Luminosity's worst nightmares became true as fnatic just kept plowing through rounds, eventually taking the lead and the tournament point, 15-12, thanks to a swift triple by flusha. The match wouldn’t end quite yet as Luminosity kept the match alive by sheer willpower and taking it to overtime.

Will was not enough in the end and the Swedes showed why they're number one by winning the first three of overtime, and wrapping it up speedily in the fourth and final round take home the $100,000 prize allotted to the champion.

I understand your frustration, even Brazilian players using 56k modems in the jungle are able to compete on the top level while NA teams swimming in cash struggle to make it out of groups at anything international.

Let it all out man :(

2016-03-05 22:40:05
I prefer to see a few top teams having some good matchups like in 2014 with VP/NiP/fnatix/LDLC

not even hating fnatic, its just boring
2016-03-06 01:32:55
strange then that the scene has more viewers than ever, by some margin.
2016-03-06 09:33:03

But at least CSGO is expanding in some aspect
2016-03-06 09:40:57
just like esports in general, has nothing to do with that

2016-03-06 14:02:34

2016-03-06 17:17:09
Yeah,we all gotta admit that Fnatic is the best team that ever existed in history of this quite young game.But the main question is,when will that end?I mean that synergy and teamwork in this team is on some unbelievable level,i am not even talking about their skill level and reading of the game.
It's just getting rly boring,that nobody can win them
2016-03-05 22:16:55
They don't even celebrate. "Just another trophy, okay... Gimme my money."
2016-03-05 22:20:31
+1, boring top1 scene really
2016-03-05 22:20:51
It's not boring at all, why is everyone saying this? They're great to watch and LG put up an extremely good fight against them. Sure, it was 3-0, but (apart from Cache) it was much closer than that suggests. It was way less fun when NiP were 87-0 and the competition was way weaker. Now, if nV bring themselves back to top form and LG and Na'Vi continue improving we'll have fnatic having to fight off all three of them, as well as Astralis if they return to form too. I think it's fantastic. Plus the fact fnatic are so solidly in first place; everyone else will be dedicated to beating them. These are good times for CS.

I kinda understand why you try to whitewash whats happening right now,but Its not the reality. Nobody can beat fnatic in a bo3 when it matters. They have to go all out and even if you think they beat fnatic ( 12-3 half) they never do ( they means the other great teams). you just know fnatic will win anyway
2016-03-05 22:46:09
They're not even the current Major champions. It's not like this run has been going on for over a year (like NiP)... It's been a few months. They will lose at some point, just wait and see. I'm more worried about nV falling to pieces than fnatic winning everything in 2016. Also see my comment #261 you'll understand that being 12-3 up on both those maps' CT-side is in no way a guaranteed win.
2016-03-05 22:51:24
yeah,it's strange how nV didn't work out in a long run.They wouldn't have been able to win a major if fnatic wouldn't have been in a slump,imho.
They have the best french line-up possible,but when it worked well at the beggining of the EnVy when they just out-aimed everybody,doesn't work now,cuz aim is just so good on even tier2 teams nowadays.
2016-03-05 22:56:11
Last major was a different team.we are talking about the Dennis fnatic, and they won every Single tournament in a very competitive era of cs go. Nobody can beat them.
And the current meta is pretty t-sided, just Look at how the tournament played out before the final. Thats why Its so annoying: even in a time where especially fnatic among others are heavily t sided, they lose the t half 12-3 and Maybe you thought to yourself: Wow lg can win this! But of course they dont because suddenly fnatic become ct gods
2016-03-05 22:59:41
Dennis is good but I think jw coming back to form impacted their play way more
2016-03-06 22:27:39
I Agree
2016-03-07 00:26:47
inb4; 87-0 boys arrive =D
2016-03-05 22:49:47
if smbd will bring up that 87-0 NiP streak is obviously retarded,cuz what Fnatic does and what NiP did is uncomparable,cuz NiP were playing good when level of the competition wasn't even at the half of a level where it is now.
IMHO ofc.
2016-03-05 22:53:38
And i totally agree with you!

There was some good comp, early CS:GO
however - they were just simply ahead of people

- However, fnatic are playing flawless CS - NiP didn't back then (they were just better)
2016-03-05 22:54:35
yeah,good point was made by YNK? or moses? i guess.That Fnatic leveled up and improved to the certain point where they don't rely on strats,their teamwork,that's what is winning matches and tournaments for them.
And that's smth,which i have to suddenly admit FaZe Clan team,which i am a fan of,will accomplish,cuz of their communication.Which is sad,cuz i am a rly big fan of them.

Predicted it.

They believed that the kings would be dethroned, but the only thing that remains is blood and bones before the throne.

2016-03-05 22:37:17
Expected. Nowadays only LG can challenge fnatic, but fnatic are slightly better anyway.
fnatic will win the upcoming major, that's for sure. It's as boring as it was in 2012-2013, when NiP had been winning everything till VG added shox and stepped it up, but now there are no teams to defeat fnatic, and it's extremely boring, I can fully understand, why VP fans didn't watch the matches - after VP lost it was obvious, that fnatic would win.

EnVyUs should do the same as fnatic did with ex-LGB trio - they gathered the strongest players in one team, and managed to success. nV should make shox come back, and pick ScreaM instead of apEX and kioShiMa, otherwise they will never win vs fnatic.
2016-03-05 22:21:25
I seriously doubt anything will come out of EnvyUs unless they get their heads out of their asses and start actually working. But +1 Fnatic makes it boring
2016-03-05 22:23:52
overpass was fucking close, on that map they lost the tournament
2016-03-05 22:24:53
Right, I don't get people calling for -apEX, he's one of their best players... -kio is much more understandable.
2016-03-05 22:42:04
Well, because apEX is not in Envys steam group anymore - so something is happening, thats why people do -apex (Also KennyS was removed as moderator in it)

Edit: apex posted this https://twitter.com/ENVYUS_apEX/status/70619262347..
- but people are pretty sure he was seen in it.

Post edited 2016-03-05 22:53:39
2016-03-05 22:50:42
Yeah I heard that they have internal problems. But I'm getting the impression that some people are saying -apEX for in-game reasons which, in my opinion, would be pretty dumb. Also I'm not getting all the +shox/ScreaM either. I would personally replace kio with rpk. Maybe ScreaM, but I'm a bit unsure about that.
2016-03-05 22:54:32
2016-03-06 01:11:33
See you are missing the point here!!! Back in 2012 when NiP were dominating the scores were never 3-12 down first-half for NiP and they mounting a major comeback as such.. they were very much winning it straight cuz of the level of play from other teams was not that great.. see that was boring cuz you knew NiP is gonna win anyway cuz of the low level of competition.. I won't blame NiP for that cuz the scene was just evolving back then.. but now with teams like NV, Navi, Luminosity you really can't say who will win it.. It's upto the teams now to figure out why can't they close out a match when they have an upper hand in the first half.. I don't how you guys find these matches boring.. insane clutches and comebacks..ace rounds and what not... Look at the quality of play..
2016-03-06 08:11:02
the scores were never 3-12 down first-half for NiP

LG blew it in both overpass and inferno... a team that had both big leads and still lose both maps doesn't deserve to win at all.

Huge choke, +pros to fnatic, they are so good its annoying.
2016-03-05 22:28:52
If you watched the maps you would know it wasn't a choke at all as all the Fnatic CT rounds were Fnatic dominating and many rounds in LG CT side were very close.

Like many have already said, Fnatic started always in the T side. If they would have started as CT there wouldn't have been OT in neither Overpass or Inferno. Stilk they made it 3-0.
2016-03-05 22:42:42
Jesus... I swear to god every person on HLTV nowadays has the mindset of Gold Nova 4 at best. Overpass is very CT-sided, 10-5/11-4. Inferno is also pretty CT-sided, 10-5/11-4. So, despite LG getting 12-3 on both CT sides, they were against the best team in the world who also have incredible CT sides... Like, what do people not get about this? It's not like they went up 12-3 on Inferno T-side and then lost (which then yes, would be a hard choke). I knew as soon as they hit 12-3 on Inferno (didn't watch Overpass), if they lost the pistol they would tie it up. Once the CT-side gets rolling on Inferno it's so hard to get a round in.

EnvyUS is tier 2 now? :(
2016-03-06 00:45:11
Fnatic should play with 4 players to make it more fair imo
2016-03-06 00:48:08
in my opinion the reason of fnatic's win is lack of high skilled aimer .
this is truth accept ir ot not .
2016-03-06 01:01:08
No it's not rofl
2016-03-06 01:04:02
Fnatic is in a whole other level atm , today they showed us that there is a big gap between them and the top2. Luminosity was on fire, and even then, couldn't take a single map from the swedes. I know that it seems "boring" to see them win everything but a few years from now,when these lineup is gone, we are gonna miss them and that's a fact.
2016-03-06 01:19:12
Yeah, well said. I personally don't think it's boring... I enjoyed seeing LG try to take on the final boss. LG looked terrific as well imo, pleasure to watch them play
2016-03-06 01:30:10
Yeah, let's hope we see a rematch in the major.
2016-03-06 01:31:24
ez and expected.

As much as I hate to admit it, Fnatic dominates hard, hands down.

"A 1vs1 clutch in the eighth by Fernando "fer" Alvarenga gave Brazil the 7-1 advantage"

LOL props to whoever made this article.
2016-03-06 03:38:25

2016-03-06 04:11:06
deserved, but respect luminosity, they can probably stop fnatic in few months
2016-03-06 04:16:50

They can never lose if flusha is not banned..
2016-03-06 04:17:17

They're starting to carve their name on CS history if they haven't already
We could even say they're the best CS team of all time right now

And polaks of course shouting Virtus pro in the end, not knowing their pathetic team was completely humiliated. No idea what is their logic behind it.
2016-03-06 17:01:31
Logical thinking is too much for 10-12 yo kids
