fnatic thrash Cloud9 to win ClutchCon

February 2nd, 2015 13:23

fnatic won ClutchCon 2015 following a 2-0 victory over Cloud9 (16-7 on de_mirage and 16-1 on de_nuke).

A total of 16 teams gathered in Denver last weekend for the CS:GO tournament at ClutchCon, a three-day multi-game computer and console LAN event held by Clutch Gaming Arena, an eSports company based in Colorado.

Network problems during the first day caused huge delays and pushed the matches back by several hours, forcing the admins to completely redo the schedule and leaving players and fans alike pulling their hair out.

The biggest disappointment of the tournament was certainly CLG, who crashed out of the tournament in the quarter-finals after suffering a 1-2 defeat against eLevate, who would go on to lose to Cloud9 0-2 in the last-four stage.

In the other half of the bracket, fnatic came from behind to beat KaBuM 2-1 after being defeated on de_mirage on the first map of the series. In the semi-finals, the Swedish giants breezed past Team Liquid 2-0 while conceding just four rounds in total.

In the grand final, Cloud9 still put up a fight on de_mirage as fnatic ran out 16-7 winners, but de_nuke was a complete one-way street, with the Swedish giants picking up a 16-1 victory.

getting a total of 20% of rounds isn't very impressive
2015-02-02 13:26
I would rather use word "stomp", trash is kinda.. you know..
2015-02-02 13:39
they used the word "thrash", not trash. there's a large difference in meaning.

bloody hell, that bothers me so much when people use to say "trash metal"
2015-02-02 13:50
Haha yes!
2015-02-02 14:28
ahh i love trash metal
2015-02-02 14:35
hah sorry thx for letting me know, I didnt even know its not "trash" :D
2015-02-02 17:08
Well any metal is trash, so..
2015-02-03 15:02
they could've used trash tho, cuz that's what C9 is
2015-02-02 13:54
how much?
2015-02-02 13:55
I won 10 euro on fnatic ;) I will never bet on 'Muricans cuz eu>na duh

Trash and thrash are two different words, you know.
2015-02-02 13:57
really? brb google. you are right! I'm so embarassed with my vocabulary and grammar skills. :( Thrash -to hit (someone or something) very hard with a stick, whip, etc. -to defeat (someone or something) very easily or completely -to move about violently Trash -discarded matter; refuse. synonyms:garbage, refuse, waste, litter, junk, debris, detritus, rubbish "the subway entrance was blocked with trash"

I like how late this was reported because there were more important things to announce than fnatic winning some ez money at some NA lan.
2015-02-02 13:24
Haha :P In general there was no info about this LAN. The announced it aswell as the groups, but no viewer's guide or anything like that.
2015-02-02 13:29
The viewer's guide would have been a waste of time because all of the scheduled times would have been wrong.
2015-02-02 17:43
Well yea, but that is some 20/20 hindsight.
2015-02-02 17:45
No, it's because HLTV.org is in Europe and the grand final was played at like 5am GMT, so obviously they are going to report it the day after.
2015-02-02 13:47
if it can be called "LAN"

stats from tournament? i rly would like to see how flusha did play this tournament
2015-02-02 13:28
He played pretty well. Probably #2 best stats in fnatic would be my guess. olofm with best stats. But it is possible JW had better stats than flusha. Pronax last and Krimz 2nd to last.
2015-02-02 13:29
thanks both of you
2015-02-02 13:37
cevo.com/event/clutchcon/?_sec=1&_sem=VG.. Flusha actually got 2nd best player of the tournament and JW first. So scratch what I said about olofm :p
2015-02-02 13:37
Flusha and olofm both have the best KDR with 1.72 for them so you're not that wrong, but JW was better during big matches I guess and he had higher "efficiency" from what I saw from CEVO boards (mainly because he gets alot of entries mostly while olof mostly bashed ecoes ^^).

2015-02-02 13:32
best event ever
2015-02-02 13:34
The only thing i remember is that team-Liquid newbies started t-bagging torqued players in the cache map. Team-Liquid that team what could only get 1 CT round on inferno against fnatic ahahah. How are these noobs even sponsored by an team? is the NA scene so small? They had max struggle with an pugteam which dindt even pracc for 1 day long including summit1g. adreN should keep it at streaming only.
2015-02-02 13:35
United States lybrel 
May be a pugteam, but it's near Cloud9 level. m0E = top 2 NA awp in Source skadoodle = top 1 NA awp desi = top 10 NA on paper better than liquid
2015-02-02 21:31
This was an easy LAN for fnatic. I betted on them every game and made like 100$+ of skins in 2 days. Easy. NA didnt stand a chance.
2015-02-02 13:35
aha I see. I never betteed on them and still made 1200$.
2015-02-02 13:51
Thats nice. My biggest victory was CLG bet over LDLC and Kabum over C9. I got like 10 maximum bets of 240$ out of it.
2015-02-02 14:05
LOL sure you did
2015-02-02 14:21
I dont care if you believe me. You can just dream about this skins.

Honey, can you take out the trash? Thank you.
2015-02-02 13:48
I hate the fact that a good sponsor like Cloud9 is being wasted on a team that knows they have issues and know they can't succeed with their current line-up and refuse to do anything about it. RIP NA CS.

Worst event in history or one of the worst. And we all knew from the start that it was gonna be a walk in the park for fnatic. NA scene without it's scummy players are one big fat zero.
2015-02-02 13:53
Its Miraa again. You seriously need to learn the basics of journalism. Reading your take on a story makes me feel that you're a bit..sorry to say, uneducated. Hit up google, there are tons of things u can learn online.
2015-02-02 13:56
Saying "your uneducated" to someone is probably the height of irony.
2015-02-02 13:56
Wooops..im sorry, i guess typographical error is a cardinal sin here. Fixed before you posted. Be sure to proof read this post aswell.
2015-02-02 14:05
Sure, no problem. - Whoops* - I'm* - I* - That's not what typographical means. - errors* are* - You didn't fix it before I posted. Check the timestamps you dolt. - as well* Glad to help! :)
2015-02-02 14:13
Hahaha..thank you for taking that bait. Ive (i have) seen all of your other posts. Pretty sure you werent goin to miss this opportunity. Good luck with life sir!

It's a net positive but that's not going to solve what is wrong with C9. They aren't going to be competitive either way.

Gj Fnatic Would be nice if HLTV can add Clutchon stats into her database. Most American tournaments/leagues don't get added, while most of the European do, leading to lots of American players not yet included in the stats section.
2015-02-02 18:00
hltv writers you need to use simpler language.. it's like writing for country folks

Seriously inviting Fnatic isn't a really good idea. Just look at the scores of the semi-final and the grand final, it just makes the NA scene look ridiculous to me.
