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.
