fnatic easily defeat iBUYPOWER

fnatic have defeated iBUYPOWER 16-7 (9-6, 7-1) on de_cobblestone in their opening match at ESL One Cologne 2014.

iBUYPOWER attacked B to start their terrorist side of de_cobblestone, but three kills by Olof "olofmeister" Kajbjer and two by Jesper "JW" Wecksell gave fnatic the openiing pistol round.

A good save by iBP netted them two kills, and star player Braxton "swag" Pierce put up three headshots, including a one-on-two, to get them on the board in the next round.

After a save swag won another key one-on-one with two kills, and after another weapon round that saw them trade picks early on, they found themselves up 5-2 as terrorists.

That's when fnatic shifted to a higher gear, as olofmeister and Robin "flusha" Rönnquist put up triple kill rounds each to force iBUYPOWER on a save round, tying the game up again.

Now at 5-5, iBUYPOWER took over B and gained one final lead at 6-5, before fnatic replied. Markus "pronax" Wallsten's triple forced iBP on a save, and a double kill from him made it 8-6.


pronax led his team to a win on de_cobblestone 

On the final round olofmeister and Freddy "KRIMZ" Johansson combined for five kills, and fnatic changed sides with a comfortable 9-6 lead as counter-terrorists on the map.

The team's captain pronax continued strong play in the second half, putting up another double on the pistol, followed by a triple against iBUYPOWER's triple Scout buy.

Down 6-12 after another save, Sam "DaZeD" Marine and swag got iBUYPOWER a round, but JW and flusha then broke their money with five kills.

The North Americans went for a weak Scout buy next, but it paid no dividends. A full buy later saw fnatic run over their A defense, and break iBUYPOWER's money again.

With fnatic up 15-7, iBP bought whatever they could, but swag's triple FAMAS round was outdone by JW who scored a quad-kill and a one-on-two to win 16-7.

No nuke is a CoD map, who ever says that any CS map is a CoD map is a fucking retard. Fucking nuke is a doom map then. And Inferno CoD map because it is fucking pocket sized. /rage

It's been a joke since 1.6. Lel. No, seriously, is your computer so bad that you have to blame the maps for your poor performance? I guess this is the the most difficult map to run with an optimal frame rate.
2014-08-14 15:54
You are idiot, you don't realize is imposible retake a site as CT? Is lottery is map. Alot of places to camp.

Each team can ban 2 maps, if they didn't want cbble they could've just banned it and tried their luck on a map which they play more often. Stop using this veto system as an excuse for a bad performance.
2014-08-14 16:02
lol dude i just wanted to point out that the map pick is random and nothing more... because of his sentence "lets pick a shit map" ...

I still think the veto system isn't to blame here. But I understand your point, I also think playing a random map out of the 3 remaining maps is weird :)

u won't cause that map is called de_cobblestone and I do NOT see here any 1.6 tournament t have final on de_cbble
2014-08-14 16:00
de_cbble is short form of de_cobblestone

Best of one with "random" map selection, and no knife round. What the fuck ESL?

Not like they did 9-6 CT side and iBP barely put any around as CT...

IBP love to choke, that's what they do, but what I'm implying is the format itself is boring. I kind of feel I could have missed every match today, checked the results and have had the same experience.
2014-08-14 15:57
The HR Epsilon was kinda the game of the day and now we gotta wait Titan C9 for a decent game.

Stick to CoD murica.

Skadoodle great performance!
2014-08-14 15:51
Yeah, I'm very happy I chose him instead of swag in my fantasy team, based of G3 performance! But yeah, you can't win if you lose both pistols, dont kill anyone in the ecos (10 hp left on 3 guys every round in Fnatic) and you don't hold mid.
2014-08-14 15:52
lost both pistols, constantly bought scouts and couldnt convert those into kills etc, definitely not going to be happy with themselves after that

Skadoodle is such a sick player, but waaaay too inconsistent. If he can't get his play up to par, iBP are never going to go anywhere..
