fnatic have been crowned Swedish champions after overcoming SK Gaming with a 2-1 scoreline.
In the first half of de_nuke, SK Gaming got off to a solid start, putting themselves ahead of fnatic by four rounds. Although the latter were able to catch up and even out the scores, SK eventually raced past them to seal the first half at 9-6.
Switching sides, SK Gaming claimed the pistol round, but fnatic were not ready to give up yet. Scoring three rounds back-to-back, fnatic grew closer. To fnatic's despair, however, Robert "RobbaN" Dahlström's SK kicked into higher gear and moved to the finish line, only allowing fnatic to get a their hands on one additional round, securing their first win at 16-10.
Continuing the encounter on de_dust2, both teams commenced by fighting head-to-head for the precious points, tying up at 6-6. Unlike their showdown on de_nuke, this time it would be fnatic's turn to go into the second half with the lead. (9-6)
Switching sides for the second time, SK Gaming opened up by securing the first three rounds, effectively tying the two sides up once again, but to little avail. fnatic picked up speed and rushed ahead. However hard SK tried, it was not enough to stop fnatic from taking the match into a third map at 16-14.
With the third and final map being de_train, SK began by asserting their dominance in the opening rounds, claiming their usual three. This didn't discourage fnatic the least, with Richard "Xizt" Landström taking his squad up to a 8-3 lead.
fnatic were, however, not able to capitalize as much as they'd hoped to, with SK Gaming biting back to reduce their deficit. Going into the second half, fnatic were in the lead with a scoreline of 9-6.
Having gained a little confidence, fnatic were able to overpower SK Gaming in the opening rounds, collecting three rounds. However, history repeated itself and SK Gaming followed close behind, claiming three rounds as well.
Ultimately, fnatic got the better of SK Gaming, snatching enough rounds to post a 2-1 victory at 16-9.

The thing that surprises me is that it happened during two map in a row, the ones they lost.
Carn certainly did his share part especially in the 3rd map :)
SK should learn from Na`Vi...either go in with all you have into the tournament or don't even participate!
