Virtus.pro win Legends Series #1

MIRAA
September 1st, 2014 23:49

Virtus.pro won the first edition of the CS:GO Legends Series following a 3-2 victory over Ninjas in Pyjamas (16-9 on de_nuke, 16-1 on de_mirage, 11-16 on de_overpass, 16-19 on de_inferno and 16-13 on de_dust2).

For the first edition of this new weekly tournament, which is almost identical to the Caseking of the Hill cups, except that it features just two teams, E-Frag picked the winners of the last two CS:GO majors, EMS One Katowice champions, Virtus.pro, and ESL One Cologne champions, Ninjas in Pyjamas.

In a clash between perhaps the two strongest teams in the world, many expected it to be a very close affair, but the first two maps were pretty much one-sided as Virtus.pro picked up 16-9 and 16-1 victories on de_nuke and de_mirage, respectively.


GeT_RiGhT could not stop Virtus.pro from winning the match

NiP then showed their tremendous fighting spirit and equalised the series on two maps after a 16-11 victory on de_overpass and a 19-16 success on de_inferno.

The final map, de_dust2, also went down to the wire, but in the end Virtus.pro ran out 16-13 winners to walk away with the $1,000 prize and the title of CS:GO Legends champions.

2014-09-02 00:20
they just won a major though?!
2014-09-02 00:26
yep he won a major, but actually his performance was terribad. He did nothing for his team, if im not wrong, his stats was like -71 frags
2014-09-02 00:51
Well he clearly did something if they won a major :)
2014-09-02 00:54
Yeah he did. He made it harder to win.

2014-09-02 00:21
fifflaren should just buy kevlar+helmet & he should only play cz or fiveseven so he could drop for his other teammates & buy nades. I mean they should at least try it out, because he can't frag that good. This is a fact. He could play as the igl & just play pistol so his teammates could play more rifles/1 awp
2014-09-02 00:21
XD
2014-09-02 01:51
this must be tried atleast once. i am also in favour of this. But I will prefer -fifflaren. That is the best option.
2014-09-02 05:44
no then he would be really the "support player" & it will introduce a new cs-style. 1 always on pistol, 1 awp & 3 rifles:D:D:D
2014-09-02 05:49
double kills compare gtr and fiffy omg...

Most people felt that Fifflaren played a fairly good game compared to his usual standards, and then it turns out he ended 55-102... For his own sake I really hope he will retire while NiP still are on top, and not wait until the inevitable downfall that will eventually happen if he stays. The hate he has gotten thus far will be nothing compared to what he'll face when his 0.5-kdrs finally start sending NiP out in the early stages of most tournaments.
2014-09-02 00:32
Well it's up to other teams to step up, the thing is that NiP has 4 players in top 10 ( with GTR and forest 1-2 ) so even if they play 4,5 guys vs 5 it doesn't matter . But if teams like VP get their shit together and fifflaren doesn't that's trouble
2014-09-02 00:39
He DID play a good game compared to his usual standards :D Usually it's even worse.

Lol -47 wowz0rz. I can't image how much MORE dominant NiP would b with a legitimate 5th. They literally play 4v5, and there is really no excuse saying he's a support player, cuz pretty much any top tier Swedish players can out perform him exponentially
2014-09-02 01:41
0.5 KD is decent for a support player. All of them can't be madfraggers

Look at how even VP stats are and then look at fifflaren. Pretty sure VP has the same roles and they also have to bait/hold shit angles.

55-102, ROFL. "Guys stop making fun of Fifflaren, he's one of the best players on NiP" Give me a break, NiP is cooked if they don't cut him.
2014-09-02 03:45

2014-09-02 05:40
maybe fifflaren is the 1 who always has to jump out first & just sprays while jumping. at least that would explain his good stats as his sick role as the best support player ever. your teammates should be really thankful to play with you & i know they are. At least you played your best 5 maps you played for a whole time, excellent. You are the best!and even if they kick you, you'll find a different team & rule the scene again with your godly support player skills.
2014-09-02 05:57
I agree with the first part. However if he quits ( won't get kicked but only depart on good terms) he will not join a new team. He will just retire when that time comes. People are just so ignorant. He plays so well under pressure and always make the first move or entry when executing a round's strategy. The information he gives to his team during the rounds is crucial. He had his moments during this match and they won the fucking major a few weeks ago. Says enough. btw : 1000 dollar for four hours gaming and needs to be split by 5 players is not worth it.
2014-09-02 09:02
fifi is good i agree but vp and rest of nip are super good!
2014-09-02 14:09
Yeah he is just not good enough for this skill level

United Kingdom QNo 
But imagine you put a top10 Swedish player in his position, he could do all that and get twice as many kills, Fifflaren really doesn't always get the worst positions on maps. The one big thing NiP have going for them is chemistry/friendship. People overdefending Fifflaren are as annoying as those who make a thread about him after every missed kill.

kick fifflaren already
2014-09-02 08:42
55 kills in 133 rounds 0.41 frag per round lets face it.. this is god awful for a professional standard
2014-09-02 09:23
i mean c'mon dude,how you wana be the best when you have a guy in your team that can't kill atleast 1 player per round and most of the time dies without doing any damage,this is friendship and shit...but holy crap,i still dunno how they won last major. The time will come,he will get kicked for sure
2014-09-02 10:27
fifflaren top fragging as usual. find him a better team!

hey guys, this legendary "support player" named Fifflaren is allowed to go 55-102 cuz he is a "support player." Oh wait... there are support players in VP, but I dont see 55-102 on their side.
2014-09-02 09:22
gj Fiffy np NiP TOP 1 4on5 anyway
2014-09-02 09:33
-47 seriously?
2014-09-02 09:35
such great support from fifflaren, if only other supports could aspire to his intangible greatness

Dude exactly! his flashes where godlike, too bad rest of team failed so much to get kills
2014-09-02 10:52
Ppl like to ride the "pro/anti-Fiffy trend" like they decide the team's next lineup :P About the match, all the players from Neo to Fiffy had their shiny moments, over the course of 5 maps, so that's why imo, it was one of the best match of the year. But from all the performances, I think Byali's ace-eco-ace against Nip comes first to mind.
2014-09-02 09:54
dunno what match you was looking at,but i can't remember fifflaren to have shiny moment. stats showing it also
2014-09-02 10:28
Well, he had good moments too, but his bad ones were way more common so you can find there the explanation.
2014-09-02 10:42
he had entry frags in the OT rounds on inferno for instance, assuring man advantage, I also remember he had some important frags on d2, nonetheless he had some impact.
2014-09-02 14:29
It's like watching SolEk 2.0, crushing dweebs left and right

Well played Virtus.pro Keep going guys
2014-09-02 10:43

2014-09-02 10:58
11 kills per map. not bad
2014-09-02 11:06

One OF the BesT games I SeeN In my Life Very HarD for Both ! BeatiFul And HeaVy Best Players in this match : 1.Get Right 2.PaSha 3.fifflaren 4.Snax ( Remember 2 Ace In InferNO and Last Rnd in Dust2)
2014-09-02 13:23
byali made 2 aces, not Snax!
2014-09-02 15:20
11 frags per map in average is very bad over 5 map. Horrible game by fiff..but he can do better:)
2014-09-02 13:25
it was really nice to see taz and neo on the top of the frags :D
2014-09-02 13:54
yeah, neo stepped up finally
2014-09-02 16:44
Fiffy stepping it up though ;o
2014-09-02 13:28
fifflaren fanboi completely blinded by fifflaren's so called flashbang tossing skills
2014-09-02 13:46
but you have to admit that a 0.5 k/d is not something you see everydsy from fiff! 9-44 #nevurfoget still love im thogh!! <3
2014-09-02 13:58
really entertaining game! even though i was cheering for the ninjas and they lost i was very happy to see gtr back in shape! :D
2014-09-02 13:55
55-102 never forget
2014-09-02 14:09
Fifflaren standard k/d ratio
2014-09-02 16:03
pretty great match, but i feel as if it was 4 vs 5 most of the match. Fiff did have some good plays, but also some terrible misses. They need to have fiff go through DM/AIM bootcamp for a week straight.

Nip is going to go back to being mediocre until the next major and they make finals again.
