LDLC over Na`Vi to playoffs

LDLC have overcome Natus Vincere 16-12 (8-7, 8-5) after a weak start on de_inferno to advance to the quarter-finals at ESL One Cologne 2014.

Na`Vi attacked the A bombsite of de_inferno on their terrorist pistol round to get the opening round, but LDLC won round two, thanks to doubles by Vincent "Happy" Schopenhauer and Mathieu "Maniac" Quiquerez.

A triple by Denis "seized" Kostin tied the game at two after a save, but Happy's triple kill in B put LDLC back in the lead, while also forcing Na`Vi on  save round.

A round later seized claimed three more kills, and then the combination of Sergey "starix" Ischuk and Ladislav "GuardiaN" Kovács took out all of LDLC in the A site to tie the game.

After an LDLC save the in-game leader of Na`Vi, Danylo "Zeus" Teslenko, got three kills as his team attacked the B bombsite via counter-terrorist spawn to go up 7-4 following another save.

Down 4-7, LDLC had their backs against the wall, and they delivered. First doubles by Kevin "Uzzziii" Vernel and Happy got them a round, and then Happy combined for four with Maniac.


Edward's strong CT play wasn't enough against LDLC 

Two more doubles by Dan "apEX" Madesclaire and Uzzziii in B tied the game at seven, and Hovik "KQLY" Tovmassian mowed down Na`Vi's middle fake on the final round to give LDLC a lead at half.

Second half pistol went to LDLC with apEX picking up three. On the fourth round the Frenchmen took out Na`Vi in A, and at 13-7 they had won a whopping nine rounds in a row.

Zeus picked up three M4A4 kills as Na`Vi went aggressive in banana, and two double kill rounds by both GuardiaN and Ioann "Edward" Sukhariev, got Na`Vi to ten rounds.

LDLC then took out the previous rounds' heroes in A, forcing Na`Vi to save their weapons. Edward's quad-kill got Na`Vi the next round, but then LDLC split middle to B to force match point.

Down 11-15, A double kill by Edward kept Na`Vi alive for the time being, but they lost yet another save round as Happy and apEX picked up doubles to close the game out.

Guardian missed unusually many shots, but he was still the 2nd best in NaVi. That tells alot.

Seems like NaVi have one of the worst CT sides on inferno among all the top teams. They are always giving away free openings to T's. I really don't understand why they can't translate their patience from T-side into their CT-side. It cost them the crown in caseking against IBP and now against LDLC.

Maniac failed defending the A bombsite as CT. During those crucial moments when Na'Vi are pushing short, 15 seconds on the clock and Maniac is the last line of defense. I really expected him to step up in those do or die situations. Happy and apex carrying as expected.
