Video: fRoD vs Team 3D

February 21st, 2013 18:18

We're getting even further into the past with our "Frags from the Past" series. This time it's Danny "fRoD" Montaner holding his famous green weapon alongside with a Desert Eagle against Team 3D back in 2005.

CompLexity were up 7-1 on CT side when Team 3D attacked A from short and carpets. In the beginning Danny "fRoD" Montaner holds the common position in arch to get rid of anyone going that way.

Even while smoked out the AWPer stood still, which paid off as his zoom was spot on an enemy coming from mid. He then re-set in small pit to rule out another Team 3D player with a wallbang.

After being forced to draw his Desert Eagle, Montaner racked up another round for compLexity with two headshots from the powerful pistol.

I miss method and shaguar the most. The CGS caused so many of the best NA players to retire shortly after the CGS became a thing that it's sickening to be honest. It completely destroyed the NA scene for many years to be honest, and we never truly recovered from it.

sick froddd
2013-02-21 18:28
lol n people say the players in this time were bad. the best players in those times had some of the sickest fucking raw aim and reflexes ever seen including every year since then.
2013-02-21 18:29
nah..just fRoD was ahead of his time, just like SpawN
2013-02-21 18:34
i dont agree with u at all, there were so many amazing players with insane aim and raw talent.
2013-02-22 20:16
agreed! The reflexes back then were just as good IMO, people just got better at one-tapping the head (with the m4, for example).

1.6 deagle is soooo sexy
2013-02-21 22:07
really wonder what is the key of the magic.. why 1.6 videos looks so much better that GO? it has so much more dynamic.. or is it just me? also matches are still quite boring in GO, seem kinda slow for me..

cbz dominator volcano ksharp rambo. I think when they had cbz it was one of 3D's weakest lineups
2013-02-22 11:45
yah cbs was a weak player, dominator was meh as well, ksharp was washed up but still a good aimer, and rambo was still just a solid team player. 3d was grasping at straws at that point
2013-02-22 18:08
LOL you have no idea what you're talking about noob, 3D placed 2nd in S14 barely losing in the finals.
2013-02-22 20:34
WOW 2nd in cal-invite? when cal and the entire NA scene was already falling apart? they better have placed at least top 3
2013-02-22 21:48
2005 North American scene falling apart? You clearly are new. American and Brazilian scenes were still huge. Invite was extremely competitive up until season 18 when premier was dropped. I would love to see you play any team from this time, you talk like you would stand a chance. "cbs was a weak player" LOL spoken like a true spectator
2013-02-22 22:42
Calling a player washed up when he took a one year break and later considered making a comeback in a whole different game in which he was one of the best is not very smart
2013-02-22 21:05
ksharp was a shadow of his former self at this point, no denying that
2013-02-22 21:47
Not really. He was just burned out at that time
2013-02-22 21:52
burned out, washed up, wats the diff? point is that ksharp had already done more in cs at that point than most have in their entire career and he didnt have the drive anymore.
2013-02-22 22:01
Burned out - people who don't have the same desire to do something as before. Washed up - when someone just drag themselves doing something without performing as they used. Explained how I understand it. And yeah he was playing more for fun than money or anything. Which is a rare thing towards pro players these days
2013-02-22 22:09
I would never call 3D weak but I remember when charliebizzle joined them they werent as strong as most if not all of their prior teams. He was bottom fragging most matches and the team was not as dominant as the 3D everyone was used to. I heard he was a super cool guy but just didnt fit with their style of play so was too bad. I always thought Ksharp was strong, even when he came back to CS for source. In the begining he was on another level to everyone else (much like fRoD's domination in 04/05 being the first player to be +1000 on gotfrags old stats). Later Ksharp wasnt as much of a standout as his younger days but he was always solid, even right at the end. Im pretty sure he left because he lost the passion to play but he was still able to compete with all the CAL-i players for sure.
