fnatic overcome Virtus in overtime

fnatic have come back to defeat Virtus.pro 19-16 (5-10, 10-5, 2-1, 2-0) in overtime on de_overpass to advance to the playoffs at ESL One.

fnatic almost overcame a two-on-four situation on their terrorist pistol on de_overpass, but Wiktor "TaZ" Wojtas final P2000 bullet connected and got Virtus.pro the early lead.

The Poles were in danger on round three, but Paweł "byali" Bieliński's double in a two-on-three retake put them up 3-0. Freddy "KRIMZ" Johansson won a one-on-two next though, and fnatic ran over B after.

At 2-3 Virtus had two saved weapons, but it was enough to win a round, and byali's two entries put fnatic on a save round, whose kills were split by byali and Jarosław "pashaBiceps" Jarząbkowski.

fnatic again easily ran over B to win round nine, but doubles from byali and Filip "NEO" Kubski gave Virtus the control. NEO's side then stopped fnatic in B, and his there kills and as assist against an eco with an Incendiary made it 9-3.

Markus "pronax" Wallsten's entry kills in B got fnatic the next round, but byali won a one-on-one to give Virtus their tenth. Last round went to fnatic, with pronax getting two, again.


TaZ's team had a good start but couldn't finish the game 

A triple kill by Robin "flusha" Rönnquist on low health saved the day for fnatic on their defensive pistol round, and a quad-kill by Olof "olofmeister" Kajbjer cut their deficit down to 7-10.

Virtus came close to winning a save in A, though ultimately lost, and then another multi-kill round, this time a triple, by olofmeister got fnatic within one round at 9-10.

The Poles' save tied the game at ten, but doubles by NEO and Janusz "Snax" Pogorzelski got them their lead back, before a two kill effort by flusha once again tied the game.

Snax's three opening kills got Virtus the lead, which they then extended to 13-11 with him picking up two more kills on the next round, while byali put in two as well.

olofmeister and KRIMZ won a crucial two-on-three retake to keep fnatic in it, but two AK-47 frags by byali got Virtus.pro to fourteen, just two rounds away from victory.


JW came up huge in the second half versus Virtus.pro 

TaZ got two entries in A, and Snax cleaned up the round to give Virtus three game points, and a chance to finish on top of group B at ESL One Cologne 2014.

fnatic fought back, and two pairs of FAMAS kills from Jesper "JW" Wecksell and KRIMZ made it 13-15. olofmeister's triple MAG-7 round got them within one, and the duo of JW and flusha forced overtime.

Tied 15-15, Virtus were able to take A with under twenty seconds to go, plant the bomb and win the crucial opening round. However, fnatic instantly adjusted, stopping them in A.

Final round saw JW score three frags in the B bombsite, giving fnatic a 17-16 lead. As terrorists fnatic quickly attacked B, giving them two map points, with a 18-16 lead.

The game was settled with KRIMZ scoring a triple kill on yet another quick B bombsite attack, securing fnatic a 19-16 win, coming from a 12-15 deficit.

2014-08-15 17:13
fnatic will face NiP tomorrow so bb fnatic anyway
2014-08-15 17:13
how do you know?
2014-08-15 17:15
Not sure about that. In this match, only neo had less than 20 kills, which shows how consistent every player in fnatic/VP is. Now look at NiP lately. GeT_RiGhT has been doing even worse than fifflaren, and Fifflaren. Which means the only way NiP has any chance, is friberg/xizt/f0rest going insane and carrying the game.
2014-08-15 17:16
I've just looked at the ESL One Katowice bracket and 1st from C is going to play with 2nd from A. So I'm 99% sure this will happen: Epsilon vs. Na`Vi NiP vs. fnatic VP(?) vs. dignitas LDLC vs. Cloud9(?)
2014-08-15 17:22
I know mate, what i mean was i dont believe NiP would eliminate fnatic. At least not if gtr doesnt step up bigtime, otherwise fnatic are going to the semis imo. :p
2014-08-15 17:27
you're wrong becouse in play-offs is a draw systam and no 1A vs 2B 2A vs 1B or smth
2014-08-15 17:29
Lets see in this way: NiP and VP both finished as 1st in their group, means they are top 2 seed. In that case we'll have: NiP vs NaVi Epsilon vs VP which means if both NiP and VP go thoough quarterfinals - they would face eachoter in the semifinals what's not ideal, top 2 seeded teams shouldn't be able to play against eachother till the grand final. Im not sure if this is correct, but I see it in that way, imo your bracket makes no sense.
2014-08-15 17:29
You make no sense, rather. NiP finished 2nd in their group and VP aren't even through to quarter finals yet.
2014-08-15 17:41
read the first line, let me paste it once again for you: Lets see in this way: NiP and VP both finished as 1st in their group
2014-08-15 17:49
It still makes no sense at all, where's the logic behind this argument? Since the scenario is impossible it feels very irrelevant.
2014-08-15 18:18
im not rly into CS system, but i believe its the same as CoD. Number one and number two seeded teams should not meet before the grand final if they both end up 1st in their group.
2014-08-15 18:24
Bracket would be like this: LDLC vs. Clou9(?) fnatic vs. NiP Na`Vi vs. Epsilon VP vs. dignitas(?) so VP and NiP can meet only in the final. If it will be just like in ESL Katowice, this bracket will match :)
2014-08-15 19:05
so VP and NiP can meet only in the final. That was my point, but Fr3de didn't rly get it ;)
2014-08-15 19:10
fnatic has yet to lose vs NiP with their new line-up I think, so it will be a really tough match for them if they face eachother tomorrow
2014-08-15 17:18
is it certain? NiP wanted to meed VP over fnatic though, because they think fnatic plays really really good against them
2014-08-15 17:18
what does it matter, they dont get to chose their opponents you idiot
