fnatic has much more room to gamble... so, my best guess is that it'll go like this :
Fnatic eliminate tuscan
Navi eliminate forge/mirage (noone prefers to play these in a final)
Fnatic eliminate inferno
Navi eliminate forge/mirage
Navi pick tuscan
fnatic pick nuke
navi pick dust2
errr, fail from my side... i did mention in the first line that fnatic eliminate tuscan :P
There will only be 3 eliminations, not 4, since we only hav 7 maps in the pool... Updated prediction :
I check the first map, but than dont know :) If fnatic win first map I guess they can win one more of the 3 remaining one, if not Im gonna cut my balls.For sure there will be d2,inferno,train and the 4th will be tuscan or mirage, they will remove forge and nuke I think.
For me this is the 4th.
Delta vs Navi
Delta vs zNation
what I watched today
2 finals of 2 was loosing by Na`Vi
but it doesnt mean that Na`Vi cant beat fnatic
btw they lost their 1st final against fnatic like 19:22 (only 1 map needed to win for fnatic)
and 2nd final was like 1:2
so Na`Vi still have pretty good chance
but dunno as for this GG final...I think Na`Vi too tired : they play like 10 maps today
Wow.. CS 1.6 perhaps last grand final, couldn't get more intresting! Hope to see a great match between these two legen... wait for it... dary top teams. Also good to see ESC as a top 3 team in this tournament! Great tournament so far, good luck to fnatic and Na'Vi in the final! May the best team win :)
U R ? REALLY?
WHAT DO U THINK PLAYERS? THEY NEVER SLEEPENG OR WHAT?
THEY FUCKING TIRED TOO!!! ESPECIALLY NA`VI,WHO PLAYED BTW 10 MAPS TODAY
IT WAS FUCKING HARD AND HOT DAY FOR THEM I GUESS
so I agreed with u about transfer the grand final for tommorow :)
no its not like in esea 2x bo3 and winner from wb need to win one map , now it is bo5 but fnatic as winner from WB have average 1map so 4 maps will be when navi will win at least 2 of them :) so fnatic need have 3maps in pocket then its over or navi pick 3 maps in a row and they will win 3 1.
bad mirage? Because they lost to SK, arguably the best mirage team ?
bad train? Because they lost to ESC a while ago?
train was/is the map every1's afraid to go against Na`Vi....Na`Vi are often referred as train kings!
it was expected that fnatic would eliminate tuscan and inferno...after all they eliminated nuke!
fnatic haven't played forge either!
Considering the situation, I think that they couldn't have gotten sth better!
bit of a brainslip by trace and 2 others at long, they kept banging house at long while 4 kills had already been made, and a bit earlier a nade was lobbed up mid from double doors, so there could never have been a fifth :p trace at least had seen that nade
guess they are tired after so many maps :P
what are you on about he plays sensational the entire tournament, he got the bitch role of going in first most of the time, while in mTw he had other guys (ave) doing dirty work for him, instead of the other way around. also he just switched from primary awper to rifler (3rd awper if needed), and still he does insanely well.
if you can not see this, you must be delusional
LOL IM SO GLAD I WAS SPECCING KARRIGAN ±D
was thinking how he was ever going to see again with thousand flashes coming in, and how he would ever get even one frag from that f#cked up position, and then he pulls this off, insanity :D <3
This is what it seemed like people expected when f0rest and gtr went to SK. They were called the most individually skilled team, and it seemed expected that every round someone new would make a huge play. They had success but it didn't really go that way. With fnatic it's happening. It seems like every round someone new makes an amazing play to win the round. Even if they're down like two men to four, they seem to figure out how to pull out the round or come close.
Actually kinda similar thing happened with SK after Delpan joined...at the beginning they were just too much to handle...then delpan stops practicing and we all know what happened!
Don't forget that at that time we had a lot more top teams, the best 15 players were playing in like 7-8 different teams and now it seems like fnatic got half of them!
At that time SK were the most skilled team and they were a role team!
Now fnatic has incredibly skilled players without explicitly defined roles!
yeah, I assumed all their old teams counted, he did play with some of them right? or am I confusing him with jumpy :x
still, I feel khrystal was the one carrying h2k most of the time, but yes, he was starting to get really good back then. but he really made jumps in fnatic, believe me. back in 2010 he made alot of "silly" mistakes, which get punished instantly at top level.
now he just seems to make perfect decisions ALL the time, and his incredible aim helps him pull off impossible moves
Xizt played with BARBARR for a while in playzone.se
+1 (was it hyvlarn?)
He never played with delpan+pita before fnatic 2010.
Jumpy was the IGL in mym.se but he was replaced by barbarr in the last days.
I am NaVi's fan, but damn fnatic is amazing. MODDII has always been one of my favourite and he with friis and karrigan are just so motivated and beast. Nice to see them doing so good job. hard to believe NaVi will win 3 maps in a row, but lets hope for the best :P
The thing about fnatic is they have tons of motivation. karrigan, Moddii, trace and Friss haven't proved themselves in the scene by winning heavy medals. That's the key behind their performance I think
none of them have won much before joining fnatic!
Xizt didn't have a major before joining fnatic and won only 2 before moddii joined!
moddii almost never had the team to compete for silverware!
trace was forever 2nd with mtw....other than DHS I don't remember him winning any other title :/
karrigan and friis likewise!
On the other hand, all other top teams (Na`Vi,ESC,SK) have won almost everything, so I completely agree your point!
That's what you get for losing matches in a bracket system like this. The better-off team gets advantage from being best in the individual matches - seems fair doesn't it?
This bracket system is a lot more fair than the bo3 single elemination imo. You get to work harder if you go through lower and to the final, but you still have a chance to take the 1st place inspite off one bad match in the upper bracket. Look at the bright site, NaVi still got to play a final though they lost to ESC in the upper-semis.
And the key word you are looking for here is fair. Quit whine mkay?
"That's what you get for losing matches in a bracket system"
Team which won in upper bracket, have 1 point in final match. It's fair. Other things not.
"This bracket system is a lot more fair than the bo3 single"
Pff, What do say now? U are stupid indiad cow, u can only say, on practice u just sux.
Look now on Edward, he is mvp of this match. And in situation 1v1 he simply was trying to get round, because friis(or other player of fnatic) had chance to defuse..
p.s. even if edward will play without keyboard, he will rape you easy. iNet hero bb, dont reply me.
yeah not sure about that one
my only guess is since they didn't for sure know he was in there, maybe they thought he might be coming from halls so figured they'd push through together to either find and kill him or plant in the other site if he was indeed going halls (?)
'9' stands for russian letter 9I (in transliteration "YA". It's like ceH9I in cyrillic would be 'Senia' in latin letters. But he made H little (caps off) and 9I reduced to as little as 9
ceh9 (cyr)= ceH9I (cyr) = Senia (lat)
If you're referring to '3a gpy3iB' - it's in Ukrainian (cyr again) in translation means 'For friends' or 'for friends sake'...
c - S
e - e
h - n
9 - ya
His previosly wrote Esenin. In russian it can be shortened to Senya. Much like f0rest - f0rp.
When he write ceh9 he uses russian pronounciation of this word. He writes russian word with english letters
you say "nice try" with sarcasm....
fnatic > navi
dk > uk
sw > uk
messi > shevchenko
friss > markeloff
moddii > edward
xizt > zeus
karrigan > starix
trace > ceh9
fnatic archivements > navi archivements
AND YOU SAY "NICE TRY"?
so funny, friis karrigan players without tittle..i mean we all know who they are..but their teams always suck and they have not some individual prizec(like markeloff best player of 2010).
So fucking retard how u can say this shit? Did u see other matches of markeloff? On dreamhack and gamegune. He was best of the best, and its fucking normal when in cs one player kills other! Of course retards, markeloff is not immortal.
ShaQ you are retard. LOOK AT shaq posts, HE POSTED MORE THAN 4 POSTS ABOUT "HIS POOR OPINION", that friis > markeloff and etc. I think he is sick and needs doctor...
Hahah to 4to pravilno virajau cvoi misli, budu4i objectivnim, a ti parenek iz derevni priwel ckazat kak navi ploxi? 4to bolet nezakogo? ah da otkyda y derevni sport, a tem bolee cybersport.... Otcekauc9 derevenwina, tyt tolko kon4enniy, le4is'.
Calling other people retard when you obviously is the one.
friis has been in the scene too long. He was considered DK's finest awp back in the time when NoA/mTw Sunde was on top (Zonic even mentioned that). He never really got good players who complement him in the game. Full-Gaming was the first team friis got which had players like ArcadioN karrigan and suranga to support him else he was only one waging lone battle.
Where was markeloff before joining Na`Vi?
FUCKING UKRANIAN RETARDS ALWAYS DISREGARDING OTHER AWPERS.
FYI friis since 2009 has got best awp kills per round.
