Virtus.pro have booked a place in the Fnatic FragOut Grand Final following a surprising 2-0 victory over VeryGames.
This was the third defeat for the French side since picking up Adil "ScreaM" Benrlitom as a replacement for Cédric "RpK" Guipouy last month. The other two times were against n!faculty and Ninjas in Pyjamas, both for ESEA.
Fresh from winning the title at Epsilan at the weekend, VeryGames gave a disappointing account of themselves on the first map, de_mirage_csgo, allowing Virtus.pro to run out 16-4 victors.
On de_dust2_se, the ESWC runners-up came out stronger, and pulled off an impressive performance in the second half after being down 10-5 at the break. In overtime, Virtus.pro were the happier in all the close rounds, and the former 1.6 team won the map 19-17.
Virtus.pro will face the winner of the semi-final contest between NiP and Anexis in the Fnatic FragOut decider, which is scheduled for Sunday.
They have always been notoriously bad online!
VG lost to a team which has a player with ~100

And btw, the rest were with 50|60 ping, so its a difference like 40 ping, THATS NOTHING.

Would have love to see this lineup, especially in 1.6 :
but it will probably never happen.
Potentially its the most raw skilled lineup in modern era(=alltime) of Counter-Strike you can ever imagine.

Edward is a close one, he is the one other player that could be in the top 5, but Xizt and TaZ are miles behind.
Also, in the top20 players of 2011, my top5 was exactly the same as theirs (I didn't look at theirs)
Trace 4th, TaZ 6th (Even though i think thats overrated)
(No offence to taz intended, he is one of my fav players, just wouldnt personally put him above trace in raw skill)

Xizt = The sickest madfragging IGL CS ever seen.
Overrated is only mad noob opinion... Delpan might be the more inconsistant, but when on fire he is the top1 raw skill awper ive ever seen in these 13 years of CS. Absolutly the most spectacular style and fast flicker with reflexes like none else.
"Even" navi players claimed Delpan is Not overrated. They said he is a very good player.
So its nothing less than a myth created by mad hating ppls..
Speaking about Markeloff, its a bit like Messi and Barcelona. Wouldnt fit in nearly as good in any other teams system and structure than Navi's.
For me Delpan is more like CR7 - more adaptable, indipendent and flexible.
We allready had some examples of this in the past.
btw: gl in WCG with your lineup. :D !

I personally believe, that he as a player, is rated much higher than he should be. He is good now and again, but he is far too inconsistent to be classed as one of the best in the world.
And I think your opinion about markeloff is entirely opinionated, and the only thing delpan has shown over the years is that he infact doesn't fit into most lineups, which shows why he has changed team so often.
+1 for moddii he is a beast and should really be in the top5 somewhere, I just didn't want it to be too swedish xD
Delpan was some time ago (at a top 10-list) ranked as the #6 alltime awper (even if he had this quite short career) but thats mostly bcuz of his INDIVIDUAL RAW SKILL and not as an "alltimer" with heavily stacked major career trophies.
Markeloff has been around the scene some years longer than Delpan, and he didnt rly start to perform really, - i mean really great against world top elites until navi was created. The navi lineup started to grind this game together at an intensed level of practise like no other CS team ever did.
That tells you a alot.
and btw: So your thoughts are not attached to your very own personal preferances? your opinions are above everyone elses u think?
And delpan was kicked out of SK. Its easy to shine like he does playing below the highest level, and when he was taken up there he wasn't standing out much and his inconsistency was clear to see.
The same can be said for manne when he played for fnatic, and Xizt when he first moved to fnatic (Though he did become a very good played in the end, he was inconsistent at the start)
At an individual basis he didnt shine like Delpan did - amongst teams a level below vs the very bests world elite-teams you claimed.
Inconsistant? yeah (compared to a more defensive orientated awper like Markeloff's role in Navi) from time to time Delpan could be. But least to say, it also tended so much more obvious and fragile for being exposed since his skill playing at his very highest peaks is sore (with a playstyle that's pretty much built around extra small margins of agressive peeks to outreflex opponents and how he moves/unortodox angles) brings out some smell of "bad play" in terms of steep contrasts. You are much more naked as a player with a challenging playstyle like Delpan's. Many times It could be "all or nothing" and some days it didnt work as it perhaps did in an earlier performance just couple of hours before.
But when he was playing his absolute A-game, he is the most raw skilled awper ive seen and i wont change my mind.
manne? pfft online-player - status: [only]

almost a dreamteam
VP new top2 team.
GG WP, bb VG
Not my fault your fanboy feelings are hurt, VG don't deserve to be in the top2, saucers..
But i don't care about VP winning against VG in an unimportant online match.
two weeks ago, VG won against VP 16-11 online, and i didn't go all "OH 1.6'ers BADDIES" and shit.
Let them battle at LAN - And we will see who is the better team :)
for those ex-css guys that say who are vp, vg just played bad you should do some research before write bs
To other posters, i wouldnt be so quick to count VG out, one series hardly defines the skill of both of these teams. VP was just the better team today. I really like this VP lineup, i wish we couldve seen them in action in 1.6 while it was still highly competitve :(

Ex6TenZ is smart guy and good leader.
I was suprised how well Virtus did play. I knew they are good but this was just, wow.. Hopefully they will play at same level on LAN and give a good match against NiP.

VG NOT TOP TEAM ANYMORE?
KENNYS DONT PRACTICING?
DOSIA CSGO CFG PLS

if there were someone ukrainian instead of Adren = 3 ukrainians and 2 russians = ukrainian flag.
There are so many examples of this "rule".
Post edited 2013-02-07 03:40:35
Dosia is just amazing!
Post edited 2013-02-07 07:16:47
But this means, he can't afford things for himself, so he had to steal money from CC ? as i know russians are quiet rich
their lineup is a month maybe 2 months old and other teams play like forever together, so dont expect much VG will will be in top3
Post edited 2013-02-07 11:04:13
Yes its a suprise they lost to VP but they really played bad. I like to se VP beating them on lan...
ANYWAY : I really liked how VP played. A lot of smart moves and strategies well executed! gg wp! Looking forward to see more good things from them. In 1.6 they often were close to win major title but kept failing.
but now is time for real CSers
it's not anymore NIP >>>>>>> VG>>>>>>>>the others, it's more :
NIP >>>> VG>the others.
i wish in a couple of months it'd be NIP=VG=ESC=VP=NaVi=OI ! By then csgo scene is gonna be really interesting !
VP STRONK VG WRONK
Cuz VG dont use any strats , LOL, just some fakes and rushs . Nothing more, you gotta expect that from a team, who wants to be TOP 1.They will not show their game, with a Lan event so close.
And btw, we gotta say that dosia was in a GREAT day.

69.6 HS %
haha flame on
No but seriously dont make a big deal out of it. The Russians have always been a bit random. On a good day they can destroy anyone and on a bad/drunk day they can lose to anyone so...
Post edited 2013-02-07 15:21:32
It was only VG vs NiP.
Now if we're lucky with ESC still going stronger, and OI(Overrated Individuals) as an upcoming team, maybe there will be 5 candidates for top1 spot at copenhagen games JUST MAYBE!
bad job, hltv, you used to to better than this
