Titan win DreamHack Stockholm

Titan have won the French battle over LDLC 2-0 (16-4 de_mirage, 19-15 de_cache) to win DreamHack Stockholm and $10,000.

Opening map de_mirage saw Titan jump to a quick 5-0 lead, before LDLC could get on the board. Kévin "Ex6TenZ" Droolans's troops quickly restored monetary control though.

Up 6-1, LDLC were forced to save after an ill-advised force buy attempt, and found themselves soon trailing 1-8 as Fabien "kioShiMa" Fiey failed to conver a one-on-two attempt.

A round later he succeeded at that, but once again Titan quickly won the next round to force Richard "shox" Papillon's team on a save round. LDLC trailed 2-12 before finally winning round fifteen.

Second half saw LDLC win their pistol round to keep their hopes of a comeback alive, but Titan won round two, and cruised to a 4-1, 16-4 overall victory on the opening map.

The grand final was a battle of the French 

On de_cache it was LDLC's turn to jump to a 5-0 lead before Titan replied, but A quick hit towards the A bombsite gave Nathan "NBK-" Schmitt's side a commanding 7-1 lead to start map two.

Titan then got their defensive play together, and a double FAMAS kill boosted up in the A site by Mathieu "Maniac" Quiquerez led to him and Kenny "kennyS" Schrub splitting the opposing team next round.

After a save round LDLC's once-commanding lead was cut to 5-7, but in-game leader shox's one-on-two heroics, and a good call on a mid-to-B split got it back up to 9-5.

Final round of the half saw Titan go for a desperation buy and mid-round aggression in middle led to two kills by in-game leader Ex6TenZ, and a round to make it 6-9.

Titan tied te game up at 9-9, thanks to Hovik "KQLY" Tovmassian's three Glock-18 kills in A. LDLC got a clear stop in the A site on round four, but Titan evened it up with a mid-to-B split.

kennyS had some huge plays in the grand final 

At 10-10 two AWP entry kills by kennyS gave Titan their first lead on de_cache. LDLC's saved AWP couldn't hurt Titan, and kennyS got two more AWP entries to make it 13-10.

LDLC's save made their once 7-1 lead a 10-14 deficit, but a desperate triple AWP setup got them the next round, before Titan forced game point with a successful A attack.

kioShiMa's team got a stop in A, and two aggressive B site pushes saw LDLC force the match into overtime, with momentum once again barely on their side.

Two B-splits got Titan the opening two rounds, and three kills by Maniac in a two-on-three made it 18-15. The game was then decided as Titan stopped LDLC's bombsite A hit for a 19-15 win.

19-15 not interesting enough ? You want 3 matches with 22-20 ?
2014-09-27 10:18
Dont be a dick. The final was boring to death. That 19-15 went from a 15-10 with Titan throwing so yeah. And the semis were a walk in the park for both French teams
2014-09-27 12:13
Expected after demolishing fnatic. Ex6TenZ, you're the ***king mastermind, I have to say this again. KQLY improved his rifling skills, and it seems that they can even win some major in the near future. Good luck Titan, I'm very happy that I was mistaken saying that they would fail again.
2014-09-26 23:58
how is that mastermind? they won because of kennys and apex entries its not that they had such tactics or setups lol. edit:// and actually ex6tenz stepping it up fragwise.
2014-09-27 00:09
2014-09-27 00:05
Faking a bomb site? Smoke and fb calls? Positioning for crossfire angles? What i saw was a great execution of both great tactics amd fragging skills. And the mastermind of all that is ex6tenz dude. You gotta give credit where credit is due. Even NIP and Fnatic can attest to that
2014-09-27 00:14
biggest bullshit i ever seen but w/e fanbois aint gonna admint if they are wrong. have a nice day
2014-09-27 00:15
Nahh im not a fanboy, im actually rooting for LDLC. But like i said, i always give credit where credit is due. I think most people here would agree with me. And you too sir..hope you have a nice day
2014-09-27 00:24
It's not like ex6 is like 'ok guys remember to crossfire and work with your team!' And the others go 'durrrrr.. Oh yeah that's how to play basic cs!' All top pro's have inherent game sense and team play Titan won because of t side entry frags.

Titan just beat the three teams that a lot of people would have said were top 3 in the world at the moment, or at the least 3 of the top 5. Imppressive achievement. They looked confident, like they new they could win it -something the old team seemed to lack often.
2014-09-27 00:37
Pretty much. Beating fnatic so easily was hell of a fucking surprise. NiP as less but still pretty surprising. Went in as a wildcard but won!!
2014-09-27 02:03
Look at the stats in the final and tell me again about how KQLY and KennyS were doing all the work, clueless LDLC-fans.
2014-09-27 00:38
gg titan
2014-09-27 00:42
Deserved. This Titan team is a bit underrated. I think player by player they really get close to Fnatics lineup. apEx, Kennys and KQLY are all three madfraggers. Ex6 is a great leader and Maniac is one of the most solid supportplayers in the entire game. I actually think hes the most underrated player in the game right now. Just remember his 1on5 vs NiP on Inferno during Dreamhack winter. This guy can step up and frag like crazy if he wants but overall hes always solid. Kinda like Krimz in fnatic. Really liking this new Titan team.
2014-09-27 01:03
This. ManiBest
2014-09-27 12:16
Agreed about Maniac. He might not top the scoreboard, but he's solid in doing what he's doing. You can see when they play he's calm and collected and usually hits his shots.
2014-09-27 21:58
WHT UP NOW SWEEEDES!!!! EZ PZ titan is my favorit
2014-09-27 01:04
As for NiP btw, I think they lost motivation after winning @ Cologne. Not because of Fifflaren being low-skilled or anything like this. They do need changes. May be to change their Source duo for twist & schneider? friberg & Fifflaren were bottomfragging too often. Idk if it could help, but I think this wasn't their last fail, definitely. They already had one - at G3, but then they managed to brace themselves and finally win something big. But then they failed again... Yeah, they do need a dedicated sniper, may be Delpan or twist, but not Maikelele cuz he's disgusting. But when GeT_RiGhT, f0rest and especially friberg do their best, they smash any team even when Fifflaren is bottomfragging, so Fiffy is not the main problem for them. They either should "refresh" themselves somehow, may be by changing lineup, or retire, because I don't think they're enjoying being destroyed by anybody.
2014-09-27 01:08
I think they ara lacking a full time job sniper too.
2014-09-27 01:10
At one point I did see an opening for Twist into NiP. Honestly, I think hes the only player that could fit their team. But considering Pita is their new coach I don't see Fifflaren retiring anytime soon. These guys make like 3500-4000 USD per month playing CS:GO. Who would possibly retire from such a job? And besides Fifflaren the other four are just too damn important to the team. But I feel like NiP is one of those teams that always steps it up a bit more for the majors. I mean, I haven't been impressed with them for about 2 years (considering the hype they get). Yet they have made the finals for all three majors. Says everything really. And as long as they keep being hyped, they keep showing up for the majors they don't see any point in making a change. And neither does the owners or the fans really.
2014-09-27 01:14
Yeah I wrote this previously, that NiP simply don't care about some "small" tournaments (small compared to 250.000$ ones), and they still can win vs any team even with Fifflaren in their squad, they proved this many times. They won a major, so nobody really cares about G3 or DHSI, that's right. But if they finally want to change something, then it definitely will be Fifflaren cuz he's not so good as an AWPer, and they really need one. And with twist or Delpan instead of Fifflaren they wouldn't need to strain so much as they do with him. But if they still feel themselves capable of winning majors, then they ofc won't change anything. Fail @ DHSI? Who cares, right? :-D They won 100.000$ a month ago.
2014-09-27 01:25
Well the problem is that guys like Maikelele and Twist were probably two of the most sought after players in the entire Swedish scene during the time when they played for SK and LGB respectively. Problem is that both of them have been without a team for a long time and are constantly teaming up with 2nd tier teams. Now its really too late to join a decent side since Fnatic are well established and have a perfect lineup now. NiP just won a major a month ago so seeing them change anything is very unlikely. They will stick to this lineup until the end of CS:GO. I have literally no doubt about that. Apart from those two there are no challengers whatsoever inside of the swedish scene. Theres really no decent team that can be made up of players that could compete with them either since the best IGLs are also within those two sides.
2014-09-27 02:10
Maikelele twist Spitfire Delpan emilio/schneider A team which can be in EU top10 and beat some top teams sometimes. Something like LGB. But... yeah, it won't happen cuz those guys do some weird shit instead of teaming up with each other.
2014-09-27 02:26
sorry but they win Cologne only because they have Friberg ... Fifflaren is not good yep but Friberg is beast .. 1 event mean nothing .. :)

Let the world rivalry begin! French era this time. Good to see all 10 players perform in well. Titan changing 3 times their IGL, so expected they will struggle when their individual skills won't work. But I hope shox will just concentrate on fragging anymore, not us IGL. If he's on fire(only if he's not IGL), that's enough to win a game like the 16-1 vs HellRaiser. GG-WP! Excited the next major lan event.

Shox...That ace on Infer couldnt make him better than Kenny,Guardian,JW,Fxy0... Everyody call him all round players,but IMO,his awp skill is worse than Smithzz-who is nothing to compare with above AWPers. LDLC should make him return to full-time Riffleman and clearly forget about AWP.Titan have Kenny,KQLY and great to see them setup double AWP,but if LDLC setup double AWP,it waste of money ...

Happy needs to step up and take the IGL role for LDLC. He was arguably the best IGL in France until this event, it makes zero sense to have him not do it. I don't care how good of a fragger he thinks he can be, LDLC needs him to lead. Let Happy IGL so shox can go off and do his thing.

NBK is more emo than his girlfriend I swear, made the match all personal and it psych'd them out

Watched the finals i couldn't get hyped. CS:GO still not where it should be its slow and clunky. Needs the fast paced cs from 1.6. KennyS is the only player at the moment who is playing fast paced game and aggressive style. No more zet/Gux/Sunde type of players left even f0rest and Get_right have gone for the more mellow play wich is only due to the game been just badly designed. Also this beef between the frenchies isn't as interesting as i tough it would be. It is quite obvious that LDLC are lacking in the fragging department huge while Titan have KQLY/KennyS and sad to say but ex6tenz has been stepping up hes fragging quite a bit. Apex and maniac are quite stable as well. Over all very boring final no hype what so ever and the delays of the final made it even worse. At least hope it gave the swedes something to think about so they can recover and come stronger next tournament. Valve bring back bhop and wallbangs with preaty much everything with heavy shells,change the fucking recoil of deagle/ak/colts remove the stupid cz and other useless weapons get back to good old cs and this game might be fun to watch again..

I agree. And the casters should not use x-ray all the time. I think it kinda ruins the experience.
2014-09-27 20:48
I like casters having x-ray 24/7. You can see a lot more, like timings, thrown grenades etc.

Congrats, although I think this will be their first and last win this year.

after 2-0 against fnatic don't underestimate them, they might take next major with this line up.
2014-09-28 02:25
They might, but like I said, I personally don't think so.

Amazing final! Kappa
2014-09-28 20:27
I thought they just won the invitational event to get into the actual Dreamhack tournament?
2014-09-29 10:52
^ noob, ex6 is great lidder, he is such tactic player, yea. Maniac getting always important frags, u can chek some frags vs LDLC in cache in final for example. I will say this roster is incredible with some pracc from kqly with ak and m4!
2014-09-29 21:08
imo nip/fnatic deserved to win xd
