Titan have bested fnatic 2-0 to claim victory in the Hitbox Arena Championship, and the $1,750 first prize.

Both Titan and fnatic came out of groupstage on top with two victories apiece, and went on to defeat, respectively, mousesports (2-1) and TEAMGLOBAL (2-1) in the semi-finals to secure their place in the grand final.

The first map, de_inferno, saw neither team able to generate any real momentum in the first-half, resulting in a 7-8 scoreline at half-time. The second-half, however, was a very different story, as Titan stormed their way to a 1-0 lead with a dominant T-side half, winning fnatic's map 16-11.

In the second map, Titan took the first-half as Terrorists on their map of choice, de_mirage, and never really let go. The Swedes fared much better on the T-side as well, but were undone by a solid defence from the French side, led by Kenny "kennyS" Schrub, who finished with 31 kills. Despite a much more even second-half, Titan won out, taking the map 16-13, and the grand final 2-0.

online, he wasn't playing anywhere close to this level when they were in their GH, sadly.
2014-06-05 13:43
omg... are you serious?
2014-06-05 22:01
yes :)
2014-06-06 12:13
What? The picture of KennyS was at lan, this was a lan event...
2014-06-05 02:11
ok
2014-06-05 02:23
The Hitbox competition was staged entirely online. The picture(s) featured in a news piece do not necessarily relate to the event it talks about.
2014-06-05 02:50
so you are saying the picture is missleading? hltv need to go to these events to take proper photos, or go to the players house to take photos of them playing
2014-06-05 02:55
Misleading? Not at all as you can simply click on it and you will find out to what event (gallery) it is related. What I told you is that if a picture of a team or a player, as in this case, is featured in a news piece it does not necessarily has to be related to the same event the news talks about. As for offering to cover the expenses of your demand, I presume the topdogs will be happy to receive your check.
2014-06-05 03:03
The picture _IS_ misleading. He's wearing a Mystic jumper when hes in Titan! They are misleading me!!!!
2014-06-05 04:38
lmao, it is online. So, they need to go to his home and say "Hi, I just want to take a picture of you" and then leave??????? The meaning of that picture is just showing who the heck is kennyS, not the situation of this event. First time in HLTV huh?
2014-06-05 05:34
Lol, that was a joke morons

Good one. And they fell into it :-D
2014-06-05 13:24
If you watch it closely, you can see the Clan-Mystik hoodie he's wearing, as well as Hartsss sitting right next to him. That photo was taken at a LAN event at which kennyS was still a part of Clan-Mystik.

This is the only type of tournaments than titanfall can win, in a majors tournaments they show how bad they are.. they never gonna win a 250k tournament.... CS 1.6 players > those 2013-2014 kids.
2014-06-04 23:23
Nip never won 250k tournament but still no1 team!
2014-06-04 23:24
> those 2013-2014 kids. lawl.
2014-06-04 23:39
fnatic players (except pronax) have been known for not so long and already won 250k + titan's players are in the cs scene for a fair amount of time now.
2014-06-04 23:45
vg\titan are known since 2008 & they started playing long before (except kennyS & ScreaM maybe). And by that attitude you're clearly showing who are the kids here - one *cough* point *cough* six braindead fans. Btw, i'm not talking about adequate & mature guys who prefer 1.6 over csgo, i'm perfectly fine with that. I'm talking only about kids who start 'css vs cs 1.6' flame war in every thread. Grow up.

I don't think Titan can be top15 with only 4 players.
2014-06-05 04:01
titan enjoy that 1750. Not gonna get better than that for you. Big tournaments and big cash are best cs players- for VP and NiP
2014-06-05 01:09
what he said))))
2014-06-05 01:40
"titan - you should enjoy that 1750. You are not able to win tournaments with bigger prize. Big tournaments with big prizes are for the best cs players, for NiP and VP" or sth like that.
