March 15th, 2015 16:30

fnatic have been crowned ESL One Katowice champions following a 2-1 victory over Ninjas in Pyjamas (16-14 on de_dust2, 10-16 on de_cache and 16-13 on de_inferno.

 

The first map of this best-of-three series was Ninjas in Pyjamas' choice, de_dust2, on which fnatic had curiously not played before at this event. NiP got the start they wanted and won the pistol round as Terrorists following an A push, with Patrik "f0rest" Lindberg and Christopher "GeT_RiGhT" Alesund each getting two kills, but they were taken by surprise in the first anti-eco round thanks to a great round from Robin "flusha" Rönnquist in the pit.

fnatic took control of the proceedings and started a streak that lasted for five rounds, even though they came close to losing the seventh round as Adam "friberg" Friberg picked up two entry kills in short. Jesper "JW" Wecksell and Olof "olofmeister" Kajbjer then came to the rescue and retook the A site.

NiP then won their first gun round and reduced the deficit to 2-6, but they were taken aback by Freddy "KRIMZ" Johansson’s triple kill in B in the following round. NiP never stopped trying to get back into the game, but their inability to string rounds together hurt their economy as fnatic brought the scoreline to 10-5.


olofmeister put in a strong display on de_dust2 

In the second half, NiP won the pistol round in no small part because of two great frags from f0rest early on, which left fnatic in a tough situation. olofmeister still killed three opponents in a 1vs.3 situation from the pit but he could not stop the defuse.

NiP went on to win the two anti-eco rounds, this way reducing the deficit to 8-10, but then fnatic showed some strong play with guns and enlarged their lead to five rounds. Richard "Xizt" Landström’s men then entered their best period of the match as they won five rounds in a row to level things up 13-13, forcing fnatic to call a timeout.

fnatic came out strongly from the break and regained the lead after a catwalk Tec-9 rush, but a 1vs.1 clutch from friberg in the following round put NiP back in the game. fnatic then played out two flawless rounds to win the map 16-14 and take a 1-0 lead in the series.

Next up was de_cache, where NiP, who began on the defensive side of the map, got off to a flying start by winning the opening five rounds, with f0rest once gain taking the plaudits with three kills in the pistol round.

A quad kill from flusha, who showed great positioning, then gave fnatic some breathing room and inspired them to tie the score at five rounds. olofmeister pulled off an ace in the following round to give fnatic the lead, which they kept until the end of the first half despite two great rounds from Aleksi "allu" Jalli and friberg in the dying stages.

In the pistol round as Terrorists, fnatic, who had a narrow 8-7 lead, opted for an A push and they almost succeeded in taking control of the site, but in the end NiP came out on top with three kills from allu. This time around, fnatic were unable to cause an upset with the Tec-9s, and they also struggled in gun rounds, winning just two rounds as NiP secured a 16-10 victory.


allu turned up the heat on de_cache 

It all came down to de_inferno, where fnatic finally claimed bragging rights first as they easily denied an A rush in the pistol round, losing just one player in the process. allu then delivered four frags in B to level the score, but fnatic did not take long to respond and equalized the match on two rounds right after.

From here on it was a one-way street as fnatic brought the scoreline to 9-3, which resulted in Xizt calling a timeout. The quick chat brought immediate results as NiP won the following gun round after pushing A, but the final round went the way of fnatic, who were sitting on a sizeable 11-4 lead.

fnatic piled more pressure on their opponents by winning the first three rounds of the second half, but two frags from f0rest in the banana plus three from allu in the middle kept NiP in the race.

The following three rounds then went to NiP, who cut the gap the 8-14, but fnatic replied with one round of their own to become one step short of victory. NiP knew they had a mountain the climb to take the game to overtime, and they showed some impressive mental fortitude as they brought the scoreline to 13-15, when a 2vs.3 afterplant from fnatic in A sealed the deal for Markus "pronax" Wallsten's men.

well... tec9 ruined the entire game fnatic won because of that
2015-03-15 17:17
For the next major, I want the P90 to be OP. That should be hilarious.
2015-03-15 17:38
yeah, because Fnatic is the only team that is aloud to use the tec-9 makes sense to me.

They were the only one who realized how OP it actually is and built strats around it :P That's what happens when you try new stuff to find out new meta's. NiP failed on that point, hard.

lol how ignorant are you.. yes tech9 is overpowered.. but ok they won because of a pistol hahahaha get mad nerd.
2015-03-15 18:52
well they did in mirage they won a t round with 2 tec 9s and 3 aks
2015-03-15 19:08
Any other team in the major had the chance to use it just as much as they did. But Fnatic KNOW how to use it. That's the difference. Their personal skill with good weapons is their reason for winning.
2015-03-15 20:13
NiP won more tec9 rounds. But Fnatic won more pistolrounds because of superman olofmeister with kevlar + tec9.
2015-03-16 03:41
So NiP were not allowed to use Tec-9? Please tell me more
2015-03-20 14:20
fnatic OVERabused it, like LDLC did with CZ75

2015-03-15 16:42
15-7 = Rekt Only NIP could string 5 rounds after that. But yeah, fnatic just cruising.
2015-03-15 17:34
I guess 16-13 score line = rekt... I guess 3 maps = rekt...

2015-03-15 17:13
No, no, no. VP didn't die. VP was run over by a freight train carrying pasha's perogies and then their remains were pissed on by all the local wild dogs.
2015-03-15 17:32
said czech = no team no marmolada
2015-03-15 18:59
"Rekt" yeah. Fnatic - VP : 2 - 0, not even close maps.

lol its obvious u didn't even watch ur just posting like a fucking loser
2015-03-15 18:53
19-17 isn't close enough for you? Following your logic, I guess NiP were raped in the final then.
2015-03-17 08:07
Actually nip had more total round wins, and total K/D +8 more than fnatic. so in a way nip played the total amount of rounds better.
2015-03-15 18:26
anyway VP had win last year and where is NIP? ^.-

2015-03-15 16:32
Simply the best. Better than all the rest. Hate all you want. Flusha is still one of the highest rated players in the world now that its impossible to cheat. Krimzmeister obviously ends up winning it, knew it when they were in that 3v2. Best, most skilled CS:GO team of all time.
2015-03-15 16:32
Flusha is still one of the highest rated players in the world now that its impossible to cheat So he did cheat?
2015-03-15 16:33
There is no denying Fnatic lifted their mouses before (read aimlock).
2015-03-15 16:37
It's not really impossible, but ok. I still dunno what they did about the workshop thing (apparently people could exploit that and inject the hack through workshop/cloud, not sure if its true)
2015-03-15 16:39
I think they patched the exploit and they've limited the internet access in the majors to only specific Steam servers anyways.
2015-03-15 17:14
"There is also only severely limited internet connection at the computers used for the tournament, only a direct connection to Steam servers is allowed in the settings" Good, but it doesn't say it was limited to specific steam servers, but to steam servers
2015-03-15 23:01
Going by this, Pronax is top5 best players.
2015-03-15 20:51

Not really taking this seriously. CSGO has become a big joke.

How?
2015-03-15 20:03
I'm not a fan of the new fnatic nor of nip tbh i kinda do not like CS:GO at all because i feel its a stupid klunky game where people like f0rest are held back because the game simply cannot cater for his skill. But this final was very good. Olof is the person who can safely be called the demi-god of CS:GO hes the caliber of player that zet/SpawN/Neo/f0rest/Hyper were at their prime 1.6 days. Allu needs to stay in NiP and they can improve even more hes working very good with the team.

and cache? He played as good in cache as he played in inferno, the final is 3 maps, he only played average in d2

They are.. but you need to understand the entire story behind this to understand their reaction. Most of them have apologized since, but in the heat of the moment.. most would have done the same.
2015-03-15 17:50
I'm sure there's a whole story behind it but at "PROFESSIONAL" level know matter what has happened those reactions are so un-professional like. Kinda disappointing how a team I used to support would do that. I don't care if it was almost two years ago it still happened. Apologizes don't change much, what they said is what they mean't at a time, you can make an apology sound as sweet and nice as you want. Much better version youtube.com/watch?v=N1qFdEhzmKY

Imagine if NiP didn't suck and fnatic wasn't the best team in the world? Lmao, NiP BTFO
2015-03-15 16:41
Pistol round = 6 rounds total and it's almost random every time. It was 16 - 13. Let's say NiP just won one pistol round Fnatic 16-3=13 NiP 13+3=16. Not that I care who won I'm not Swedish and I didn't bet. I just try to prove assholes who are wrong AKA you. Pistol rounds are too dependent in this game. Why can't everyone enjoy the game? There always has to be people who chirp for necessary reason.

Incredible performance from fnatic and especially Olofmeister, most likely the MVP for this major. He's already well placed to claim the #1 spot in 2015. Impressed by Allu's performance as well, I think with some more preparation NiP have a chance at the #1 spot. Disappointed by f0rest though, a few of his plays looked weird, and it reflects on his stats. He also seemed a bit nervous, maybe the big amount of lost finals in majors is starting to mess with his head? Congratz to both teams, was an amazing final.
2015-03-15 17:08
I know right , even when the camera was pointed at him he had that sad feeling deep in him ;_;
2015-03-15 17:25
Should say that flusha is getting form again maybe one of the reasons why fnatic played so well the entire tournament
2015-03-15 17:27
GG!!! Best major ever. - Olofmeister has been confirmed as the best player in the world, this guy is on a whole other level, when it means business. NiP well played, a bit unfortunate, but they had their luck on inf in the comeback, too bad it could'nt continue for them. GZ FNATIC!

Fnatic best team wow. Nip seems to be at the same situation with Maikelele last winter. Can beat some good teams with flashy plays. But can't seem to beat the best team. I wonder whether they would keep allu after Katowice.
2015-03-15 17:13
The same with Maikelele? Whiffelele didn't even carry NiP , Allu carried and outshined Whiffelele like the sun in comparison with a fucking light bulb.

The scary thing about fnatic's major performance? They were faced with Virtus.Pro's plow mode with a big crowd backing them on home soil and VP's home map and on both maps and they recovered from it. And had to overcome NiP's "major magic". I cannot see any team in the world being able to deal with both those obstacles, let alone in the same tournament.

Great final. Well played fnatic.
2015-03-15 18:47
Awesome finals. GG both! Fnatic played well as usual and so did nip (only team to take a map off of fnatic), can't wait to see nip develop with their new player.

I feel, if f0rest had shown up earlier on T side Inferno, it could've gone differently.
2015-03-15 18:59
to all you cry babies... STORE YOUR TEARS BECAUSE THIS IS ONLY THE FIRST MAJOR of 2015. Fnatic just getting started.

olof maybe the best player now ???
2015-03-15 22:48
Let's unleash the magic.
2015-03-15 22:55
Ahh so the assholes won. Too bad, would have much rather seen anyone win but them. All the terrible things they have done in this scene (confirmed) like kicking schneider in such rude fashion, illegally boosting in a major semi-final showing poor sportsmanship and patronizing fans by saying "I lift my mouse alot" rather than showing some counter-"proof".
2015-03-15 22:58
you're a fucking idiot
2015-03-18 22:03
just #RESPECT NiP!!
2015-03-15 23:06
Nip 5 Majors finals - 1 victory. :|
2015-03-15 23:17
Fuck fnatic NIP BEST!!!!
2015-03-16 00:05
looked like NiP wanted allu to perform and to be absolved from what they did to Maikelele more than win the tournament. in result messed up stats and f0rest's game. friberg did g8 at major as always. gg both teams anyway

NIP deserved to win
2015-03-16 15:21
GGWP to Fnatic, a well deserved win after how well they been playing. Olofmeister was by far the mvp of the tournament. He put up an all star performance.

So, NiP has been to the finals at EVERY MAJOR so far? That's really impressive.
2015-03-18 08:50
that pic of olofmeister is when he is ghosting NiP
2015-03-18 18:23
When I've read that title, I thought there was some real life fight against that teams, and started wondering who had better chances... damn my brain need rest :D
