Lemondogs out after third defeat

February 23rd, 2013 19:36

Lemondogs have been sent packing right in the first stage of the tournament after losing their third group match, against 3DMAX.

The Swedish team had lost their first two group matches, against e-Sports.rs and LDLC.com, and required a victory against 3DMAX in order to go through to the tournament's second group stage.

de_nuke_ve had been the official map of Group D, with only one match not having been played on this map, and once again it was picked to stage this game, between two sides who had failed to live up to expectations.

3DMAX got off on the Counter Terrorist side in the first half and were simply far too hot to handle, running out 13-2 victors as the teams switched sides. After the break, the Slovakian team took the pistol round and then the two that followed to comfortly secure a 16-2 victory.

In the other Group D match, LDLC.com eased past e-Sports.rs 16-2, also on de_nuke_ve, to secure the top spot in the group and a place in the playoffs, which will be played on Sunday.

16-2? seriously :O? DAFAQ:O! *RAPED*
2013-02-23 19:36
They probably start losing their cool and raging, so by the 3rd match they had no focus Can't go to a LAN with too high expectations!
2013-02-23 19:43
That's real sad :(

2013-02-23 20:32

2013-02-23 19:37
What noobs
2013-02-23 19:38
well, that was strange.
2013-02-23 19:38
any replay ? :) PLZ

2013-02-23 19:40
please stop that stupid shit. look at their results before you say that. though i agree its strange because they had easiest group.
2013-02-23 19:43
look at their results ? vs 3DMAX 2-16 vs LDLC.com 13-16 vs e-Sports.rs 8-16 ok... dont care what game u show in online, good player must show his skill at LAN. well we see how they "good" at LAN. now for me Lemondogs is just onliners, nothing more
2013-02-23 20:19
they finished top 4 at dh and thor..
2013-02-23 20:26
at that time cs:go teams were all low, except vg and nip
2013-02-23 20:40
oh please, you're clueless.
2013-02-24 11:42
really? how did lemondogs play vs vg and nip at that time? how do teams play vs vg now? everyone saying about that 4th eswc place, which is great, but honestly teams are now much better
2013-02-24 11:56
teams are a bit better, but it's not like the skill level sky rocketed in 2 months. they didn't come from a parallel universe in august and had gotten more time to get better in this game. they had the same amount of time in hand as anyone else to develop their team game and individual skills, and they proved themselves to be better than most other teams at lans. you have to agree that calling them onliners after one bad lan is quite stupid?
2013-02-24 12:28
maybe they switched earlier than most other teams and the difference between 150h and 100h is 50% while between 600h and 700h is much less. i never called them onliners (yes its stupid), i think they can be good at future tournaments but they fell a little behind i guess (maybe a bad day or dunno)
2013-02-24 12:32
2013-02-23 20:32
guess so.. always picking weaker groups and brackets

top3, yeyeyeright..
2013-02-23 19:43
yeah having bad lan is impossible for topteams xD
2013-02-23 19:49

there is a big difference between having a "bad" lan and getting raped, LD got raped big times even tho they were in the easiest group
2013-02-23 19:52
When you have bad day you can't concentrate, therefore you are not able to perform well enough to get more then 5 rounds. There is no team that doesn't have a bad day/lan,wheter is it semi-pro or top team. You'll see that, this will happen to NiP too, sooner or later, and you'll say top3 yeyeyey.
2013-02-23 20:33
how do you know this group is the easiest? you just cant tell that, you know nothing how serbians and ldlc prepared (even though theyre playing with stand-in, 4 players with great teamwork can do a lot)

unstable boys, but ofc it's a sensation btw, maybe berg give a hoodoo to his team by this words? :D
2013-02-23 19:43
Easiest group and out in groupstage, hmmmm wtf LD.
2013-02-23 19:44
They Underestimated Other teams! Or just Overconfidence!

2013-02-23 20:03
3rd/4th at DHW & 3rd at THOR Open says otherwise, hence why.
2013-02-23 20:13

2013-02-23 20:26

2013-02-23 20:16
ahahah lurpis was right when say lemondogs the most underrated team
2013-02-23 20:21
well, when lurppis actually would been right ? :D Harder to found something that he actually would been right :D
2013-02-23 20:55
Let me rephrase that sentence for you: "Well, when are lurppis actually right? :D Harder to find something that he actually is right about" No offense, but what you wrote made little-to-no sens, because you wrote it in the wrong tense ;)
2013-02-23 21:55
pls any record ??? THX

awesome, lemonshit
2013-02-23 20:39
This happened in 1.6 too. I was wondering if the community will actually change after the CS:GO release but i guess not. You were saying the same bullshit when there were 1.6 tournaments too. You guys haven't changed a bit. Always trying to insult teams from home when they fail to pass the group , while the team that failed was at that lan and gained some experience, and you gained shit by saying that bullshit.
2013-02-23 20:40
+1 and when they win they love them. All time from to corner to another corner
2013-02-24 13:45
Online happened wonders .. but at LAN dreams die : ))

2013-02-23 21:19
"the Slovakian team took the pistol round and then the two that followed to comfortly secure a 16-2 victory." Spot the error.

Lemondogs with interp = awesome Lemondogs without interp = Knocked out in groupstage
2013-02-23 21:56
There's not really any discrepancies in Lemondogs results pre and post interp bugfix. Yeah, they bombed this tournament, it can happen to anyone. Except maybe NiP.
